Thames wooden boatbuilders maintaining the traditions of the past
This summer our major 2-year restoration project on the 43ft electric launch Lady Charlotte was finally completed and she left the yard to be launched on the Thames - 100 years almost to the day that she was first put on the water!
Read about her history and see pictures by the award-winning photographer Michael English on the Lady Charlotte page in our 'Beautiful Boats' section.
