Classic Boat Hire On The Thames

Recommended Posts

£1300 for a week on a Bates classic in September strikes me as excellent value for money.

I visited them at Benson last August and they were friendly. I had a look aboard Claudette and was very impressed. I agree they're reasonably priced by Thames standards. They don't have any boatyard facilities at all at their site so you have to refuel and pump out elsewhere. Theoretically you could probably do this at Le Boat a couple of hundred yards away but you might need to take out a bank loan first.

makes me feel happier about my plans for my wooden hire boat Jomaric, hopefully she will be ok on hire, I remember the state of the fibreglass boats we had on hire from Benson, I can imagine the worry to the owner of their wooden boat entering the concrete lock for the first time !

I hope it goes well for them
