History

Built in 1905, STREATLEY is a river passenger vessel with a steel hull and the capacity for 182 passengers. She was built by Salter Brothers, Oxford and operated on the Upper Thames, upstream as far as Oxford and downstream as far as Staines. After being laid up, she was sold in 1995/96 and continued to run charter trips. Her engine is a W H Dorman internal, combustion, 53kw. 1995 saw STREATLEY return to the river once again fitted with her original steam engine and coal fired boiler. She was stripped to a bare hull, repaired where necessary and then rebuilt with new saloon and returned to her old livery of black and green. She operated on the whole length of the Thames making numerous forays into the tidal river where she was licensed to Greenwich. In the autumn of 2010, she was moved to Windsor for restoration with an aim to have her back chartering as soon as possible.
