Sapphire Rose is a smart replica of an early 20th-century beaver stern launch. Originally designed as an electric launch with a low wash hull she is stable and silent. The interior is of varnished mahogany and seating is on cushioned benches with the addition of 4 Lloyd loom chairs. We can add a small table for picnics if required. 

This is our one of our most luxurious electric launches and currently is only hired out with a skipper included.

Nautical Knot
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.
