68 High Street,
Kingston upon Thames,


After 300 years of boat-building and operating a spectacular fleet of passenger vessels, Turks stands proudly as one of Kingston’s few remaining family run businesses. With a core belief in high standards and detailed organisation, our busy fleet carries thousands of passengers each year and are the proud hosts of hundreds of private events afloat the River Thames.

With a versatile fleet of traditional and modern luxury vessels, and facilities for up to 150 guests, a Turk's Launch will provide an exciting, luxurious, alternative venue throughout the year for any style of event, limited only by your imagination.

Turks celebrated their 300th anniversary in 2010 – quite an achievement!.
