Alaska is normally available for charter from April until November, however if you wish to charter the vessel outside of this period we may be able to accommodate you subject to winter refit requirements, lock closures and river conditions. If you are having a fully catered function we would suggest a minimum of 4 hours for your trip, but if you are only having canapés, drinks or no catering then a shorter length might be appropriate. For Henley Regatta charters a minimum of 6 hours is required in order to make the trip to and from Henley and allow for at least 2 slow circuits of the Regatta course. The table below gives charter rates based on embarkation and disembarkation between Boulter's Lock (Maidenhead) and Marsh Lock (Henley). We are happy to operate outside this area but will make a charge of £100 per hour to cover crew and fuel costs for positioning the boat to your requirements. Alaska accommodates a maximum of 36 guests, however, if you want to arrange a fully catered event then we recommend a maximum party of 24. Alaska is ideal for parties, anniversaries, private functions or small exclusive business events. We can provide a range of menus from canapés to finger buffets or more substantial fork buffets. Bar facilities are available as required. We can also arrange for a wide choice of live music or even a magician.
