This Edwardian counter stern replica launch is completely fitted out in mahogany with varnished decks. The Preterist has a silent electric motor 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 of 24 hours notice and with a skipper included.

Sit back and enjoy the river from your ringside seat in the company of your trusted and knowledgeable skipper.

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.
