Electro Glide

Electro Glide


£425.00 / per day

The first of their kind on the River Thames, Hobbs’ electric launches arrived from Holland in July 2021 and provide a more environmentally friendly way to enjoy the river.

As well as helping reduce emissions, our electric launches are also quieter than diesel or petrol vessels, further minimising their impact on the immediate environment.

There are five of these impeccably constructed electric boats available to hire and each can take 6 passengers. A relaxing and fun way to cruise the Thames, it’s unsurprising that these boats get booked up so quickly.

Please note: You must return the boat by 17:00 ...unless during Henley Regatta and then 18:00.
