Sailing information

Georgina is available for charter all year round. On a 4-hour cruise, guests are picked-up from our mooring below Jesus Lock in Cambridge and sail as far as Bottisham Lock before returning to Cambridge.

The Riverboat Georgina offers this in the style and luxury of a fully appointed passenger craft. The wonderful thing is that she is suitable for any function, whether you are booking a company do, or a party for family and friends.

Georgina can be booked to sail throughout the year, morning, noon and night. The usual length of cruise is one to four hours, but we can alter this to suit your needs.

Let us arouse your sensory taste buds, dazzle you with the decor, tantalize you with extensive menus, and get your feet tapping to the music of your choice.

Imagine drifting genteelly down the River Cam, sipping your tea or coffee, nibbling on freshly baked scones with jam and thick cream, escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, to sit back and relax, drinking in the scenery as the willow trees drape into the river and wildlife entertains you.

Alternatively, picture yourself on a lazy summers evening, slipping seductively from light to smouldering darkness . . . the disco lights are whirling, and the music is drifting through the air . . . your party.

We cater for wedding receptions, birthdays, works jollies, anniversaries, conferences, cream teas, or simply because you feel like a party! We have a fully stocked bar on-board, and we can provide a range of musical entertainment, from a disco to jazz to classical.

We also have a range of menus, from a finger buffet to a more formal sit down four course meal - the choice is yours!


Our aim is to ensure that all of our guests have the time of their lives, therefore you call us, explain what you would like and we do the rest - what could be more simple? We take the organisation and hard work out of your hands so that you can concentrate on enjoying yourselves!

This has just touched upon some of the many variations which the Riverboat Georgina and her crew can offer to make your event a memorable one for years to come.
