Thames Luxury Charters

P.S. Elizabethan

Fitted out to the highest standards, she is one of the most desirable boats for hire on the River Thames in London. Welcoming groups of twenty to two hundred, her versatile layout and beautiful lines have resulted in her becoming the choice of royalty, the rich and famous.

Her spacious upper deck provides a fresh space for guests to mingle, host presentations, or dancing below the stars with her large retractable roof! Wooden paneling and sumptuous carpets in her saloon are matched with spectacular views through vast windows that were sympathetically installed to retain her beautiful lines as part of a half-million pound refit in 2013.


Whether you are seeking a venue for press receptions, film shoots, product launches, seminars, dinner dances, sight-seeing, luncheons, wedding receptions, or simply to celebrate, the Elizabethan is in a class of her own.
