Thames Clippers Introduce New Ferry

March 1 2019 saw the addition of London’s newest passenger ferry, Venus Clipper, to the Thames fleet.

The high-tech catamaran made her maiden voyage, travelling 200 nautical miles from Wight Shipyard Co where she was built, to join the MBNA Thames Clippers fleet in the capital.

As the 19th vessel to join the leading River Bus service, the 222-capacity passenger boat represents a £4 million investment for MBNA Thames Clippers and is expected to help transport an extra 300,000 commuters and visitors across the 25km river network every year. The new boat features over 70 tabled seats, making it more adaptable for commuters and specialist charters alike.

MBNA Thames Clippers is London’s fastest and most frequent River Bus service. Passengers can travel directly to key central London piers such as Westminster, London Eye (Waterloo), Blackfriars, Embankment, Canary Wharf, Battersea Power Station and London Bridge City.

Weekly, monthly and annual season ticket options are available, with prices starting from £25.95 for a one week West Zone only pass. Commuting with MBNA Thames Clippers can work out from around £1.44 per journey with the annual option.
