About Zingara

Built in 2002 to a one-off design, Zingara is a truly unique vessel on the River Thames. Blending opulence with practicality, she boasts luxurious accommodation throughout, with two elegant bedrooms and bathrooms on board ensuring a comfortable experience for all guests.

Zingara is also outfitted with superb navigation equipment and mechanics – including a robust Perkins Sabre engine and Northern Lights marine generator – ensuring reliable performance in all conditions. Other technical features include a hydraulic bow thruster, car crane, twin helm positions, and a flybridge.

Zingara joined our fleet in 2023 to complement our River Thames filming and UK and international marine film services. She is PLA licensed to carry up to 12 passengers.

What sets Zingara apart is her adaptability for the screen: her unique look and features make her the ideal hero boat for a wide range of TV and film productions, whilst she can also be deployed as a floating green room, staging area, or support vessel.

She has been built with the capability to navigate all but the smallest canals, whilst still maintaining blue water capability. This versatility means Zingara is not just confined to the Thames – she’s ready to be the star of shoots in a variety of locations.
