Blackfeather Boat


Our family boat, Blackfeather, is available for private charter for parties of up to 10 people. Please note that the boat is only offered as a full charter, irrespective of numbers of passengers. The price you pay is for the whole boat for the whole day as it is uneconomical for us to offer shorter trips. The standard cost for a full day is £995 for up to 10 passengers. There are special rates for events such as Henley Festival and Regatta, and higher rates may apply on some bank holidays.

Blackfeather is a Rodman 1120 fast flybridge cruiser equipped with twin Volvo KAD 300 diesel engines giving 550 HP and is available for cruises and boat hire from Spring to Autumn along the River Thames. She is built to very high standards as an ocean going boat and is fitted with all the latest electronics and navigational equipment. She is 11.2 metres long and has a top speed of 33 knots (but that’s not allowed on the river!).

We are moored in the village of Wargrave, near Henley, but can pick up at other locations subject to special arrangement.

The seating is flexible and there are sun pads to for those who want to top up their tans.

There is a flushing loo and washing facilities. You decide on catering and we are happy to put you in touch with local suppliers for hampers, buffet lunches and dinners etc and you are very welcome to bring your own supplies. Of course you might prefer just to drop off at one of the Thameside pubs and restaurants.

The fridge is always on to keep the Champagne and other drinks chilled.

The bathing platform at the stern has built in steps and, together with a hot and cold water shower for bathers, makes swimming easy and fun.
