Built for the River Thames in 1985 by Dobsons of Shardlow, the River Princess was operated by Weaver Valley Cruises on the Weaver and Manchester Ship Canal as a class V passenger vessel until she was purchased by our east London based charity in 2011. We operated the River Princess as a much loved community boat providing boat trips and a venue in London’s Royal Docks until June 2012 when she was relocated to their headquarters at Cody Dock and put into dry dock and served as the charity’s primary venue on land until 2017. The River Princess then underwent a full survey and refit before being relaunched in 2020. With the launch of our new visitor centre and other land based facilities nearing completion, we are looking to sell and find a good home for the River Princess and plough this investment back into delivering our charity's core environmental objectives.
