Antique River Boat 45ft Day Launch Rowing Umpire Family Boat "Pommery"
Pommery was built in the late 1960’s by Simms of Eel Pie Island. She was built specifically to be an Umpire Boat for Rowing Regattas and apart from a short period working as a tripping boat has mainly always been used for this purpose.
She has had 3 engines over the years and her recent re-engine is a Petrol Mercruiser 3.0 litre 145hp straight 4
This boat has been in the care of Chas Newens Marine Co for some 30 years and we have used her for day trips along the River Thames especially at Henley Royal Regatta and the Annual Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race. Pommery is still in use at Henley Royal Regatta transporting guests to and from Temple Island to watch the racing and whilst no longer umpiring at the Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race, she can still be seen on the Thames in good working order, and is currently used annually by the Henley Womens Regatta and Reading Town Regatta as an umpire boat and for carrying supporters.
Unfortunately, although she is still serving us well, due to a change in the commercial regulations, it is now time for us to retire her back into the hands of a family that will treasure her and enjoy the countless hours of cruising that the upper reaches of the River Thames have to offer.
We are sad to see her go but the new rules dictate that only a private owner can use her anywhere on the Thames thus she cannot stay in our fleet, as without the income from chartering her on our stretch of the river as well as the Upper Thames we cannot afford to keep her.
We are looking forward to helping a new owner take control of this very beautiful launch.
