Slipper launch seating was traditionally Lloyd Loom chairs forward and a rear upholstered bench seat.
Her current and longstanding name ‘Carenda’ was given in 1955 and in 1965 she was converted to a sea-going estuary cruiser.A wheelhouse was built around the centre cockpit, safety rails added around the deck and a steady sail and bilge keels to enhance stability at sea.


The hull is a 'low wash' design to maximise efficiency with the relatively low power originally available.
There is a large sunny wheelhouse with comfortable seating for five people and an open outlook.
Slipper Launches were very popular in the 1930's to 1950's, and they are still being built today. The prototype slipper launch was built in 1912 by John Andrews of Bourne End on the river Thames. Brown became famous for the first flight across the atlantic with John Alcock in 1919 in a converted Vickers Vimy bomber.
The original light fittings and oak beams provide a subtle and comfortable ambience.The galley consists of twin sinks and an Isotherm fridge to port. Both of them had spent time as prisoners of war in the first world war after being shot down.The design of the Slipper Launch emulated motor cars of the period, to create new 'crossover' interest in boating from the increasing facination with automobiles.

There are two small stacks of drawers, further drawers beneath the bunks and a further locker behind the Royal Doulton sink.Nearly all the internal joinery is original mahogany with chromed latches and handles.

Slipper Launches were not just constructed for private owners, many were built as hire boats for day trips on the river and holidays.Other important builders of Slipper Launches were, from the 1930's Meakes of Marlow, and from the 1960's Alf Parrott at Henley.
