Hobbs of Henley: The New Orleans


Hobbs of Henley Ltd is a family run boating business, steeped in history and tradition. Established in 1870 our working knowledge of the Thames goes back five generations and has the enviable reputation of providing the finest hospitality afloat for over 149 years. We are centrally situated on the banks of the River Thames in the historic town of Henley-on-Thames and near the train station so very conveniently located. We also have parking on site for your convenience.

Our larger, luxurious passenger vessels are perfect for a corporate venue with a difference, swapping the office for the river! Our vessels are easily adaptable into boardroom arrangement ideal for meetings and conferences. Our flagship vessel ‘The New Orleans’ can take up to 80 people in boardroom style and ‘The Waterman’ 72 people, and the ‘Hibernia’ 50 people.  ‘The New Orleans’ and ‘The Waterman’ both have an upper deck so you can take a break and enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful scenes of the River Thames.
We have fully licensed bars on board all the larger boats and can also provide any catering that may be required. In addition we have a large selection of smaller vessels for team building events or office breakouts. These smaller launches are also ideal for corporate entertainment at Henley Royal Regatta and the Henley Music and Arts Festival.
