“I chartered Lilibet for a birthday celebration. Captain Sam and his crew looked smart and were very friendly and professional. The day could not have been better!”



  • Yes you can! Although you are unable to use our bar on board Hibernia and you are expected to bring your own glassware, crockery and cutlery on both boats.


  • Yes, we will take care of the boat and cruise the River Thames so all you need to worry about is taking care of your guests and having a great time!

  • You are more than welcome to hire your own photographer, florist, decorations, and cake. However, all other suppliers must be booked through Hobbs of Henley.

    We only permit use of our own musical entertainment services, as they are familiar with the vessels and our standard operating procedure. Our normal terms and conditions apply.

    We must be informed of all supplier bookings, or they could be refused entry to our boats.

  • Boarding is permitted 15 minutes prior to departure. Early access for organisers is available by arrangement.

    With the standard booking, passenger pick-up and drop-off is only available at the main Hobbs mooring.

    However, if you would like to hear about our alternative options, please contact the office.

  • For Hibernia you will pay 50% of the charter to confirm your booking. The remaining charter balance is due two weeks before your trip.

    For Lilibet you can book her self catered on our website.
