A FLEET of luxury barges was moored at Temple Island Meadows in Henley at the weekend.
It was the third annual show staged by boat builders Piper, from Stoke-on-Trent. More than 120 people visited the show, where a number of new models were on display alongside ones brought along specially by previous customers.
Managing director Simon Piper said: We deliver a lot of boats to the Thames and this setting works very well for us its stunning. Peter and Gillian Bennett, who live in Dubai, arrived in their 65ft barge, called Gillian B, which they bought from Piper for £426,000 last year.
Mr Bennett said: We have lived on board for the last three months in Fulham and have loved it. The nice thing about living on a boat is you meet so many people who are just walking past.
Pipers have been fabulous and we would definitely recommend them and theres no better PR than happy customers.
