Stay on a boat in Caversham, United Kingdom

Gema is a luxury 4 narrow boat with a modern and fresh feel, whilst still retaining the quaint charm of an English canal boat. The seating on the front deck allows you to eat outside and enjoy the stunning scenery while on your boating holiday on River Thames. For your entertainment, there is WiFi (available by purchasing a 2GB SIM card), a flat screen TV/DVD ). There are also 240v plug sockets throughout the boat. Central heating and a fuel burner keep the boat cosy and warm in the cooler months


The boat has 3 cabins which can be made up as doubles or singles. The dinette in the saloon area converts in to another double enabling up to 8 persons to sleep on board.


The boat has an open plan living and dining area which opens out on to the front deck. The galley is compact but has a full sized stove with 4 ring gas hob and a grill and oven. The living area is bright and modern but still retaining the charm of living on a narrowboat.


This is really a self drive boating holiday. There are lots of beautiful mooring spots on the River Thames, just take yoyr pick from historic Royal Windsor, Henley-on-Thames up to Oxford. Full tuition is provided but dont worry if you really dont want to drive the boat, a skipper can drive it for you. The Thames is just to beautiful to be stuck in a boat yard, it needs to be explored and enjoyed.

The Area

Windsor Castle, the beautiful town of Henley on Thames which hosts the famous Royal Regatta and 80s Rewind Festival.
