The London based Thames Clipper river bus service commissioned two new boats to help expand the Thames river services and these new boats will be officially launched and commissioned on Monday 19th October.
As the new boats were built in Tasmania by Incat they made the journey to the UK as deck cargo on a ship and the multi-purpose cargo ship Antje has carried them up the Thames to moor alongside HMS Belfast ready for the naming ceremony.

The new boats will undergo trials and crew training duties in the coming weeks prior to entering service on the Thames.
