Pilot Class Launches

Pilot class launches for hire

Family river travel for 4 to 12 people
Advance full day booking

River boat hire for families and groups

Hobbs of Henley offers a fleet of 10 self drive Pilot Class launches, available for self drive hire, on the Thames. The Pilot Class launches can cater for up to 12 passengers and apart from the 4 seater launches. 

If you’re thinking of renting a motor boat for the first time, there’s no need to worry; one of our boat yard staff will instruct you on how to drive the boat and ensure that you are competent at steering etc. before you set off on your adventure down the Thames.

Available for hire by the day (with most also available by the hour), they’re a more affordable way of messing about on the river, and can still be combined with one of our supplier’s picnic hampers for getting away from it all up or downriver.
