Bateaux London - A History

Bateaux London and our former sister company, Catamaran Cruisers, were a leading operator on the Thames with ten vessels which provided public and private charter restaurant and sightseeing cruises.

Catamaran Cruisers operated on the Thames from 1967, and Bateaux London was added to the brand in 1992 to create an "unrivalled portfolio of sightseeing, dining and private event cruises".

Catamaran Cruisers tourist services ceased to operate in September 2007, whilst Bateaux London and our two restaurant vessels Harmony and Symphony continue to operate dining cruise experiences on the river Thames.
