Will you choose to hire the small but perfectly formed Golden Star, the spaciously elegant Golden Jubilee, the stylishly sophisticated Golden Spirit (previously the Pride of London), the generously appointed Golden Flame, or the classically charming Golden Sunrise?

About Us

We own and operate 5 luxury party boats that can hold between 40 and 240 passengers and are available to hire as unique party venues, suitable for a wide range of boat parties including birthdays, disco cruises, club nights, office parties, student events, sightseeing cruises, corporate charters and weddings.

Don’t be surprised if our boats look familiar, you may well have seen then on the websites and social media of other companies.  We own and operate them, but we also work with a variety of party planners, event organisers and agents who book the boats directly with us on behalf of customers. As the owners, we can offer the most flexibility and can always offer you the best price too.
