The weather was just about right, river was beautiful. Caprice is exactly the right size for two people; although there is an option for a third person to sleep up front, we think it would be too crowded. The advertising even mentions somewhere that the boat sleeps 4 - we cannot see how this is possible... We had a fantastic week, the only slight problem was the on-board TV: it would turn itself off after around an hour unless the engine was running, & the indoor aerial rarely picks up any signal. I urge the boatyard to invest in a 12 volt TV with a more permanent external aerial arrangement. Handling was very easy, although only an expert should attempt to traverse a lock from the inside steering position as visibility is not good. From the external steering position, visibility is excellent. Boatyard old school & very helpful, but in a great location that is easy to access from the M40. Highly recommended & good value for money.

Great boat for two and a dog. Comfortable accommodation. Boat needs a sweeper on board to help keep it clean. Already planning on booking the same boat again.

My most enjoyable holiday in years - the boat was excellent as were the staff at the boatyard. I wasn't planning to use the outside steering position but great weather meant I stayed there everyday - the boat also has a large roof light above the main room, there is nothing I would change about this holiday except the duration (too short). Thoroughly recommend the Thames and this boat to anyone even to a novice.

Fantastic holiday; though the perfect weather undoubtedly helped. We are experienced 'boaters', though have had 10 years away, so this holiday was to re-introduce our teenage daughters to the delights of cruising the UK waterways. Caprice is a great boat for a family of 4. It is tight-on-space and thus requires keeping luggage, food and other stuff tidy, but having a separate cabin makes this easy. The option of the cockpit on the roof is a fantastic design capability. When the sun is out this is the best place on the river and does provide somewhat better visibility around the boat. This section of the Thames keeps everyone busy on 'Lock Duty' (even with lock keepers at most locks), and so important to have a small crew. A lot of natural sibling competition, on the best handling and rope work. Also great for youngsters to get a safe feel of boat handling. The boat was newer than we were expecting and an excellent design for beginner or experienced boaters. Its a small boat but looks much more substantial on the water than the photos reveal. Handling is quite challenging, especially in locks, but the boat's light-weight ensures that reverse gear brings everything to a very rapid stop. So easy to keep safe and damage-free.

Caprice is small and compact but has everything you need for a weekend on the river!!! We had reservations about the living area seating turning into a bed but it was actually very comfortable

The bathroom is rather narrow for someone not so thin. A Sun protection for the upper steering would very much be appreciated with sunny weather. In other boatyard they give umbrellas.

The boat came with pot and pans, plates bowls, mugs, glasses cutlery and serving implements. A novice may find this boat difficult to handle without a bow thruster.
