Built in the Netherlands in 1961, the Dutch Master originally sailed under the name Prinseplaart for the Rotterdam based river cruise company Spido. Aptly, it was all change during the millennium when she was acquired by Thames Leisure who renamed and sailed her over to Britain. She has spent the last decade cruising the Thames and exploring her new home town of London, offering spectacular views of the nation’s capital as the largest vessel in the Thames Leisure Fleet.
At 37.7 metres long, the Dutch Master can carry up to 375 passengers. Her three decks offer a variety of outside space as well as a spacious galleried saloon perfect for entertaining large numbers of guests in comfort and style. Dutch Master’s third deck is entirely open, offering the best vantage point to enjoy breathtaking views of London’s sights from the unique river perspective. Due to the size of the boat, the disembarkation is either Tower Millenium Pier or St Katherine’s Pier and she cruises mainly eastwards.
