Gina is perfectly designed for our guests, with 2 private, double cabins, one of which can also be made up in to twin beds. Each cabin has a wardrobe and a private access to the toilet and shower room. There is a hair dryer in the twin cabin. Gina comes equipped with: a fuel burner which makes the boat cosy and warm all the year round and there is also full central heating with radiators throughout. The kitchen comes equipped with a fridge with a small freezer unit, 4 ring gas hob, oven and grill and a full range of utensils.
There is a spacious, light and airy feel to the saloon with double glazed front windows adjacent to the front fully glazed doors. There is a dinette which is ideal for entertaining and which can also be made up into an extra 2 berths, making this perfect accommodation for 6 people. In the saloon is a TV and DVD player and iPod dock for your entertainment. There are also 240v electric sockets throughout the boat.
Outside is a seating area where you can enjoy the views of the stunning river Thames country side while you cruise and unwind at your own pace. Don't worry about driving the boat, full tuition is provided before you start your holiday and we are always on standby to assist should you need us. Life jackets and all boating equipment are provided. We are also dog friendly.
For the more enthusiastic boaters, why not book a day's tuition on boat Gina and do the RYA inland waterways helmsman's course as a holiday extra? This is a one day hands-on course with minimal theory, and is not only an opportunity to learn new skills but also a fun day out and you get your ray qualification as well. (please note it is not a requirement for our boating holidays that guests do this course as our handover tuition at the start of the holiday is extremely thorough and covers all aspects of boat handling and water safety. We like our guests to be happy, stress free and safe on the water.)
This is a great holiday for all the family and children especially are encouraged to participate as crew members. There are numerous places to moor up along the Thames and local attractions within walking distance from mooring up the boat.
Tescos supermarket has its own mooring on the Thames, very close by to our boarding point. So following the initial boat tuition, you can moor up and buy your shopping provisions and take the shopping trolley up to the boat.
Wildlife birds and animals are abundant on the Thames and we recommend you bring your cameras and binoculars. Everyday is a different adventure and a different story to tell.
