MV Golden Star is possibly the most popular boat of her size on the river Thames. Capable of catering for private hire functions of up to 120 guests she is particularly suited to family celebrations, office functions, corporate entertainment, wedding transfers, sightseeing trips and parties.
We are pleased to announce that the Golden Star has undergone a major internal refit during January and February 2018. The position of the bar, toilets and sundeck will remain the same, but all fixtures and fittings in the saloon have been replaced along with a new seating layout. For more information and to see the project as it developed follow us on Twitter. @CPBSLondon #goldenstarboat

“I used CPBS to host a fundraising event and they were the most reasonable in terms of pricing and offering. The sales staff were so helpful, they answered every question I had within good time and were very flexible with meeting my requests. The crew on the boat were friendly and left nothing for me to worry about but only to enjoy my event! I would recommend CPBS for sure!”Amy , Golden Star 5th August
Welcome aboard the Golden Star, one of London's most popular party boats, and ideal for family functions and smaller office or student parties of up to 120. Your guests will enjoy all the comforts of a land based venue, with the added bonus of Golden Star's full height windows allowing excellent sights of London's iconic landmarks.
Golden Star was completely refitted internally in 2018 with luxury Amtico flooring for the saloon and the dance floor, sumptuous new seating for guests, and a bespoke stainless-steel bar serving drinks at pub prices. The perimeter of the saloon is fitted with fixed bench seating along each side, with the option of adding tables and chairs to allow for optimum flexibility for your event. If, however, you would prefer to make use of the full floor space for a live band, casino tables or other live entertainment this can be easily accommodated whilst still allowing lots of room to socialise. You can also relax at the unique floating bar-top built around the front of the vessel, which offers panoramic views of London through the full-length windows.
At the rear of the vessel is a generously sized sun-deck where you can enjoy a glass of Pimms or simply soak up the sunshine. The interiors of all our party boats are non-smoking, however smoking is permitted on the sun-deck of the Golden Star.
M.V. Golden Star is ideal for a wide variety of boat parties of between 40 and 120 passengers, although we are sometimes able to accommodate functions with less than 40 passengers - please follow this link for more information on passenger numbers.
We would advise early booking to avoid disappointment, and would also recommend that you arrange to come down to view the Golden Star as boats on the Thames vary greatly in quality, presentation and layout. We are confident that a visit to any of our vessels will convince you that we offer the best versatility and value for money.
