Self drive boat hire on the Thames

Cruise the UK’s most famous river at Henley, by the hour, day or week

Make the most of your free time – by messing
 about on the river

There’s no better way to appreciate Henley or the beautiful countryside that surrounds it than by hiring a boat from Hobbs. Whether it be a row boat for an hour, a launch for a day, or a luxury motor cruiser for a boating holiday, we have a craft for every occasion. We can even provide chauffeured launches if the whole idea of steering yourself seems a bit too much.

Want use of a holiday boat every year but don’t think you’ll get enough value from it? Take a look at the Henley Boat Club page to see how you could own a share of a motor cruiser which might meet your needs.

Choose from the largest fleet on the Thames

When you visit Hobbs of Henley you’ll have access to a choice of rental boats, able to accommodate anywhere from 1 to 12 people, (please note our longer term holiday boats sleep 6 but can carry more).  

We believe in being upfront with our customers so while there are some timing restrictions on certain boats you can find full details of our fleet on our current price list. You can see our day boat conditions of hire too but to make it easier and ensure you can get exactly what you want, you can book online for full-day hire of most self drive boats.


“[Despite] the weather, we had a brilliant day - you can give your staff a big pat on the back”
