Bossoms Nell has a hull authentically recreated in hand-laid GRP out of a mould taken from a classic and eye-catching 1920’s Thames river launch design. This is a boat for the Thames enthusiast, and although we usually fit electric or diesel inboard engines, some people specify steam!

SPEED 5 Knots
BEAM 1.78m 5′ 9″
DRAFT 0.54m 1′ 9″
SEATING 8 passengers & 1 driver

The 20 foot hull with traditional straight stem and fantail stern has lines and proportions of pure beauty, which Bossoms Boatyard will complement to order with hardwood decks, a fine wood-panelled interior and the best of traditional or modern fittings to make the Nell one of the most elegant river launches available.

The details of fitout are as always for discussion and agreement – and can include an aft day cabin if required.
