As international yacht brokers Henley Sales and Charter Ltd represents boat owners all over Europe, and works in partnership with many independent and creative boat builders on the Thames and also in different parts of the country including the South West, East Anglia, Cumbria and increasingly now in France, Holland and Switzerland. Our passion is to keep the traditions of our maritime history alive by acting as brokers and advisors to other enthusiasts.
Generally classic boats are cheaper to buy than their modern GRP or steel counterparts. It is true that there are maintenance costs but this means that an owner can personalise their vessel and enjoy being part of the “project”. Within Europe there are some spectacular on the water events to attend where one can meet like-minded individuals. Classic boats are beautiful so there is immense aesthetic pleasure and pride to be gained from ownership.
HSC has excellent under cover premises for boat storage as well as contacts for craning, transport, surveys and associated services. At Beale Park we also have a slipway and direct access to the Thames from a private lake.
When it comes to charter HSC has over 30 years of experience in managing and operating charter boats, whether a slipper stern launch for a wedding party or a stunning Victorian steam boat, our expertise will source the right boat, chef, crew and route for your special river adventure. During the summer the office is open 7 days a week with someone always on call to answer questions and take bookings.
