Thank you very much for visiting our website and considering booking an event on one of our lovely boats.

Thames Luxury Charters is a family business, owned and operated by the Livett family, who have been ever-present on the River Thames since 1710. Providing an elegant, subtle and unique service on board our vessels has been at the forefront of our family ethos and is something we pride ourselves on highly.

Thames Luxury Charters was set up in 1993 and over the years we have staged some of the most diverse and exciting events the River Thames has ever had to offer. From ambitious and spectacular product launches to Hollywood movies and Royal celebrations, our expertise for events on the river is second to none and we are at the forefront of excellence on the Thames.

Managing Director Chris Livett – a seventh generation Waterman and Waterman to Her Majesty The Queen – often speaks with enormous passion about the importance and glamour of the River Thames. It has been our goal from the very beginning to make sure clients experience this glamour through our unique fleet, fine cuisine and wonderful entertainment. This family goal of providing and achieving excellence will continue for many years to come, with son Edward adding an eighth generation to the Livett legacy on the River Thames.

Our luxury fleet are based at Butler's Wharf Pier – a stone's throw from Tower Bridge – with our office just a minute's walk from the pier. We own and operate the pier entirely ourselves and Thames Luxury Charters has become quintessential with the Shad Thames area. We are very proud to be a part of this thriving community.

We had the most amazing company summer party with Thames Luxury Charters. Everything was executed with professionalism and excellence; from the customer care before and at the event to the outstanding catering. The boat was absolutely stunning. I have no hesitation in advising friends or family to use Thames Luxury Charters and we will most certainly be using them again as in the future.

We held our annual summer party with TLC as we have done for the past several years and the service really couldn't be better. We had the Erasmus and it was fantastic having the whole open upper deck on a sunny day. The staff were lovely and the food was great. It is always a pleasure!
