A lovely Edwardian steam launch has been lovingly restored to her former glory and is available for private charter on the Henley reach of the River Thames.

There is an excellent catering facility in the aft well and a full inventory of galley essentials to complement the style of the boat – every detail is immaculate. Off the saloon are two identical loos with decorated porcelain bowls.

The wonderful thing about The Windsor Belle is her various different entertaining areas outside of the boat as well as inside  including the top deck at the back of the boat which is great when the sun shines, as well as the forward area of the boat where guests can sit out of the wind to enjoy the views.

The History of the Windsor Belle

Imagine being quietly transported along the River Thames in a luxury steam launch, sipping chilled champagne and sampling the finest cuisine. The Windsor Belle offers you this unique experience as well as viewing some of the most beautiful English countryside, while elegantly entertaining your friends or business associates.

Few steam river launches have been completely restored to the original splendour of the Edwardian era. The Windsor Belle, built in 1901, with its beautifully varnished timber, shining brassware, and exquisite fabrics and furnishings offers a rare experience for private charter on the River Thames.
