Moorings At Our Boatyard
Our boatyard is located on one of the prettiest stretches of the River Thames and just an hour from Central London. If you've always dreamed of owning a traditional river launch, but don't live on the river or are not sure where to get started, then let us help get your dream afloat.
There is nothing so perfectly relaxing than escaping your busy life to our quiet corner of the Thames and, with your boat ready and waiting for you, waste no time in discovering the secrets of this truly magical part of England.
We are of course, well placed to help you select the boat of your dreams, but when leisure time is so precious, our clients truly value the full service we can provide, from a mooring berth, regular maintenance, over wintering and care of your boat. We can arrange insurance, safety certificates, boat handling training and will of course keep a watchful eye on your craft.
We have a number of berths available for seasonal occupancy and our team in the boatyard are on hand to maintain and look after your craft.

A Day on the River from Hurley
Moor with us at Hurley and here are just some thoughts for your precious time on the river as a family, with friends, just the two of you, or a moment of blissful solitude.
Your day would start, for example, with you arriving mid morning at Hurley where your boat is ready and waiting to go. Of course you've probably stopped to pick up a picnic and bottle of champagne already, but if not then why not head upstream towards Henley on Thames and you'll arrive at the mooring for the Flower Pot pub in Aston at about opening time - the ideal time for something to eat and drink in their pretty pub garden. Or, head downstream to Marlow and the renowned, Compleat Angler Hotel with its wonderful riverside restaurant with splendid views of Marlow's suspension bridge and church.
With lunch taken care of you're probably feeling a bit more adventurous so onwards to Henley through the pictureque Hambledon Valley, past the iconic Temple Island and along the Royal Regatta course to Henley. Moor along the towpath and a short walk into Henley lets you explore this quintessentially English market town with its boutique stores, antique shops and art galleries.
As the afternoon drifts on it's your choice to amble back to Hurley in the late afternoon accompanied by the swans, ducks and wildlife that abound on this stretch of the River. Or, if you are looking to make a weekend of it, then why not stay in complete luxury at Cliveden House Hotel at nearby Taplow, The Compleat Angler at Marlow, or the Hotel du Vin in Henley, or arrive in real style at Michel Roux's Waterside Inn at Bray.
The area around Hurley abounds with the country's finest Michelin starred restuarants like Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck or Michel Roux's Waterside Inn, both at Bray. The Hand And Flowers at Marlow, Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons at nearby Great Milton.
Throughout the summer season there are all sorts of events, large and small along this stretch of the River Thames, all within easy reach of Hurley and our mill pond moorings. Henley Royal Regatta in early July, Henley Festival in mid July, and the Traditional Boat Rally are just a selection, but there are many village fetes and events along the waterside.
