Private hire

Our beautiful vessels provide a truly memorable and unusual venue for all kinds of events, whether you are looking for a venue for a birthday or anniversary party, wedding reception, somewhere to entertain clients or staff or a day out for your club with a difference.

You can choose a river cruise for up to 50 guests from Maldon, Ipswich, Harwich, Brightlingsea, Gravesend and London. In Maldon and Ipswich you can have a quayside static party for up to 80 guests.

Dine on board

Choose a menu supplied by our in-house catering company, supplying locally sourced, high quality food.  Your dishes are all homemade, either in the barge’s galley or started in our shore-side kitchen and finished on board.  Our galley team excel in providing a friendly yet professional service, and you’ll find them enthusiastic sources of information about the barge and the food.

Catering for today’s varied dietary requirements are no problem and we even have vegan dishes available.



For clubs, we offer a mid-week package price from Maldon and Ipswich including lunch or tea or your members can bring a picnic lunch. If you have less than 40 members, why not book a group onto one of our public cruises.
