This Edwardian counter stern replica launch is completely fitted out in wood with wooden decks. The Preterist has tiller steering and a pram hood which covers the skipper and the adjacent seating aft.

Enjoy a pre-dinner cruise or an afternoon on the river following lunch on the dock at The Beetle & Wedge restaurant (booking advised).

The Preterist can currently only be hired with a minimum 24 hours notice and a skipper included (for a minimum of 1 hour).

PureBoating Logo
We are a self-drive and skippered day boat hire company on one of the most beautiful reaches of the River Thames between Reading (Berkshire) and Wallingford (Oxfordshire). Since opening Pure Boating back in 2015 our electric hire boats have silently graced the river between Wallingford and Streatley.

Our crew are passionate about the River Thames and know the boating environment intimately. They can advise not only on river safety and boat operation but also on where to picnic, good riverside restaurants, where the kingfishers fly and the Loddon lilies grow.
