Swan of Cookham is a beautiful 55’ Thames Inspection Launch built in 1999 with a G& J Reeves hull. This vessel is very much a typical Thames inspection launch and features an open bow deck, classic ‘slipper stern’ but with a rear tiller steer (wheel steering mechanism still in place). Swan of Cookham has been beautifully kept. There is plenty of room and comfortably sleeps 4 and very capable of extended cruises, weekend jaunts or living on board and handles like a dream.

Swan of Cookham has been loving looked after by the current owners who have had it since new. The hull of the boat was built by G&J Reeves in 1999 being well maintained still looks to be in good shape. The hull itself was 2 packed in 2017 along with new anodes all round. The exterior cabins are in good order with a little sign of rust and blistering.
Inside the vessel has been finished in oak veneer paneling, which have been well finished with a good coating of varnish. There a carpeted floor throughout.
Starting forward the bow deck is a lovely space that on a nice day with the covers rolled up will provide a great area to eat meals or entertain. If the weather turns the covers (which are in good order) can simply be rolled down to keep you out of the elements. The area has comfortable cushions and a removable table. Under the seating there are 2 stainless steel water tanks.
Moving aft through the glazed double doors you step into the saloon area. You will immediately notice this is a large space with loads of light thanks to the 6 large windows that is typical of an inspection launch. The windows all open and can be easily removed for cleaning or simply to allow more air and feel closer to the environment. On the port side as you walk in there is the old wheel and controls used to be cupboard. The mechanisms and cables are still in place should the new owner wish to reinstate the traditional wheel. On the starboard side is another cupboard and an area for a TV with Aerial point. Further into the saloon there is a large 3-4 person sofa that converts down into another 2 berths
The well apportioned galley is next. The galley is a typical ‘U’ shape with a built under Thetford Oven/Grill, top mounted 4 burner Vanette hob, Stainless steel sink and drainer and a 12v Shoreline fridge (with 11 litre ice box). This layout not only provides ample worktop space but also gives a large amount of storage from your pots and pans, room for a microwave, ornaments and an overhead cupboard for glassware. On the Starboard side you will notice the large side hatch which when open gives both air and light into the space.
Further aft is the showeroom. In this space you will find the shower cubicle with curtain. Large storage cupboards, ceramic sink/vanity unit and a pump out toilet. The showeroom has a porthole to provide extra privacy.
Moving aft again we move into the bedroom. Again like all the other spaces in the boat is a good size and provides plenty of storage. There is a fixed double with mattress with storage underneath. Also under the bed you will find the calorifier and the toilet tank. Another bonus to the bedroom space is the floor to ceiling wardrobe and separate dressing table, mirror and cupboard space underneath.
Next we move into the trad stern style engine room. This is a nice tidy engine room space which has been well boarded yet easy to get to everything without needing to take everything apart. There is ia wall mounted storage cupboard also which contains all the bits you need to maintain the boat.
Finally we step out onto the ‘slipper’ style stern, and whilst this is a trad style back end there is a large deck to stand and maneuver the boat.
