Henley Boat Club

The pleasures of life on the river for a fraction of the cost.

Founded in 2014, the Henley Boat Club is an exclusive, membership-based boating service. It offers a new way to enjoy our fleet of beautifully maintained self-drive motor launches without the cost and hassle of ownership.

The Henley Boat Club

If you like the idea of spending quality time on the UK’s most historic river, but are worried about the responsibilities and costs that come with owning a boat, then the Henley Boat Club is the perfect solution for you.

Our members have the opportunity to enjoy Hobbs of Henley’s luxury self-drive fleet for the equivalent of up to 35% off our published hire prices, all for a single annual fee.

We’ll take care of all the details – the maintenance, insurance, licences, fuel and other assorted costs – all you have to do is have a good time!
