Coming Soon – Narrowboat Gema. A New addition to our Narrowboat Holidays River Thames,UK

The winter is nearly upon us and we are as busy as ever, preparing the boats for next season. We are currently in the process of taking delivery for the latest addition to the narrowboat hire fleet: Narrowboat Gema, the sister boat of Narrowboat Gina but bigger, sleeping up to 8 people.

Gema is a 69ft Narrowboat and will be put into service on 1st April 2015 for narrowboat holidays on the River Thames and Kennet & Avon Canal. Fitted to a high standard, this narrowboat will sleep uo to 8 people comfortably in 3 bespoke cabins and in the Dinette area. Built with the boat holiday market in mind, Narrowboat Gema has the flexiblity to have the cabins made up as single beds or as doubles, according to our guest requirements. The boat will have 2 bathrooms and a spacious living area, no mean feat on a narrow boat!

Boating Holidays in the UK are proving to be an ever popular holiday, whether taken as an annual summer holiday or as  Short Break Holidays in the UK, no airport queues or airport taxes to pay. Having had wonderful summer weather this year, many of our guests are returning again next year to hire a narrowboat and explore other parts of the Thames they didn’t manage to get to this year. Fishing holidays on the Thames and Hen Parties are still popular on the River Thames, especially on Boat Geanna in Henley-On-Thames. The Royal Regatta in Henley is already fully booked on our other boats so if you’d still like to book, then book our new canalboat Gema as she is still available for the Henley Regatta week and also for the Henley 80’s Rewind Festival for accommodation.

We’ve kept our boating holiday prices competitive for next year and are currently doing special offers for 2 week holiday breaks (contact us on +44 7780 887172 directly for details).

After the sucessful launch of Boat Gina, it was a wonderful sight to see all our boats in MyRivercruising: Geanna,Ginetta and Gina on the River Thames in Henley during the weekend of the River Thames Pageant. All our guests had a fantastic vantage point of the flotilla and the weather held for us!

A sneak preview of our new narrow boat Gina on the River Thames

Tuesday 1st May is almost upon us and GINA is on her way!

She left Bromsgrove today and will be arriving at Thames & Kennet Marina on Tuesday at 11.00am. We are so excited to see her finally all finished and would really like to thank John and Dave and the team at Blackprince for all their excellent work on her.

So here’s a sneak photo of her lounge and her exterior. More photos to follow once she arrives!




GINA boat to launch on the River Thames 1st May

After months of preparation and a total refit, our new Gina narrow boat will finally join us in Reading on 1st May, 2012.

As soon as she arrives, there are guests waiting to board her for her very first holiday booking, but not before she makes her debut appearance in a film shoot!

Those of you who watched boat Geanna on channel 4’s ‘Four In A Bed’ would’ve known that the TV guests were her very first guests. And now Gina’s first guests will also be filmed on camera!
