ABOUT THE CLUB
The Thames Vintage Boat Club was founded at Old
Windsor in March 1983 to provide a club and forum for all types of traditionally built
craft; to seek to encourage their restoration, maintenance, and above all, their use, and
produce an historical record of all craft in the organisation. If you
love boats such as those shown below, you should be a member!
Now in our fourth decade, we can look back on a remarkable success in our aims over the past years.
We have around 580 members and our boat membership is around 250, amongst which
will be found the finest builds and restorations anywhere (some of our boats are
shown below). Our members include
most of the reputable boat builders of the Thames, noted experts on engines,
design, boat types and history, and many gifted amateurs.

We provide a very lively social calendar both on and off the water, and a friendly environment for all, from the interested to the enthusiast and from individuals to families. Our club burgee, boaters, sweatshirts and badges are distinctive and a familiar sight on the river Thames. We also have one of the lowest annual subscriptions of any boating club. If you have a real interest in traditional boats, or just like being around them, you will find a welcome with the TVBC. Speak to any of our members flying the TVBC burgee (buff and brown with our logo), and they will be pleased to meet and inform you.
