Lady Lena is carpeted and fully upholstered seating 10 comfortably for canapés, an afternoon picnic, or cream tea, or a feast worthy of a Michelin star or two. As we are a family concern we are able to offer fine catering through a good caterer, or let you bring your own ideal menu with no corkage charges or hidden extras. We can supply all you need to eat in comfort: tablecloths, china plates, cutlery and glasses. There is a small fridge on board for cold drinks etc, and a small toilet for convenience.
A traditional cream tea with award winning homemade scones is also available, please call us for costs.
The boat has an interesting history in that she was found as a wreck and about to be burnt as firewood, rescued by Jenkyn who paid £1.00 for her and then brought to Bath to be restored for a few more! She was built on the Thames in1890 and is now the oldest electric launch in existence and has been lovingly restored by him back to how she was then. Please see our website for the finer details of her history.We are very proud of her and personally take you on every trip – however formal or relaxed. Our objective is simple: to make sure you have the very best experience whether that is laughter, romance, celebration or just a fantastic get together.
