Built in East Anglia in the early nineteen thirties by a well known British boat builder, JW Brooke, and christened Sunny Morn, Tarbes II has survived for nearly a century in her original format as a luxury saloon launch. You can expect lashings of varnished mahogany, two cockpits, one forward with a large dining table and one aft with lloyd loom chairs and a comfy bench seat. Between the two a cosy cabin which seats six and offers an alternative area for picnics and aperitifs when the weather is less than clement.
The forward cockpit is covered by a wooden canopy with drop down windows so guests are protected inside and out whatever the weather.
Ask us about special packages for Henley Royal Regatta and the ensuing Henley Festival of Music and the Arts. We can provide a skipper who is familiar with the local area, its monuments, its history and its gossip and we can also offer a choice of menus to suit your mood.
Weddings are a speciality at Henley Sales and Charter and Henley has many suitable locations such as Phyllis Court Club, Leander, the River and Rowing Museum, Temple Island and Remenham Church.
We look forward to welcoming you on board Tarbes II.
Please give the office a call to discuss your special event.
