Henley Duchess


The Henley Duchess is a good example of what became the 'Henley' slipper launch, moulded and fitted out by the late Dave Brownjohn with his son Paul in the only remaining boatyard in Henley itself. It offers the perfect compromise between style and ease of maintenance with the GRP hull and a full solid wood fitout including traditional decking. There is little difference between the look of this model and the original 25ft Andrews slipper launch so when they come up for sale they are always sought after. I believe a total of five or six were built in the early years of this century. Henley Duchess is equipped with a hood, full length cover, smart furnishings and the traditional lloyd loom chairs. Henley Duchess bears the plate hull number 2. There is some work to be done on the aft deck this winter to ensure you start the next season in apple pie order. For a viewing please contact the office asap on 01491 578870 or complete the form at the bottom of this page and we will be in touch.
