Windsor Belle steamboat on market

A STEAMBOAT built more than 100 years ago is up for sale in Henley.

The Windsor Belle was built by Alfred Burgoine for Arthur Jacobs in 1901.

The 60-foot-long, varnished teak steamboat is owned by Windsor Belle Ltd and the sale is being handled by Henley Sales and Charter.

There is a catering facility, saloon area and engine room, which combines steam equipment with a modern electrical system for lighting and fridges.

A description on the Henley Sales and Charter website says: “The great thing about Windsor Belle is her various different entertaining areas, including the large area around the funnel which is always toasty and down a few steps to the forward area of the boat where guests can sit out of the wind to enjoy the views.
