You know the sort of thing. Something one could pose around the harbours bars in St Tropez or hook up behind the Vougue LSE and take to Henley.
One is grateful in anticipation.
Ah, but for Henley sir, one must definitely not appear with anything too bling or chav. What one would aspire to perhaps, (especially an obviously sophisticated boating gentleman such as yourself sir) would be a RIB constructed in the style of a classic Andrews Slipper Launch - even better, sir, just tube up a slipper launch. One would have to say though sir, that a RIB may not be the ideal conveyance at Henley.
For the Mediterranean sir, may I suggest a Riva, similarly treated with tubes ?
This might suit you very well sir.
