Luxury day boats on the Thames

Our Olympic launches were originally designed and built for VIP river transport at the London 2012 Olympics, and now offer comfortable, high-end river transport for luxury-loving visitors and corporate guests. Seating 12 people in self-drive mode, they can be hired by the hour or the day, from 11am to 6pm.

Olympic launches are Ideally suited to luxury-loving visitors and corporate guests, they’ll turn heads at any restaurant you care to visit, and are perfect for entertaining clients during the Royal Henley Regatta and Festival. If you have 10 or fewer people to accommodate, they can even be hired as chauffeured launches.  

We have one of these boats available at the family friendly 4 Star Runnymede Hotel and Spa, a little way downriver. And as with most of our other boats, we can arrange for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea picnic hampers to make your day even more memorable.
