Thames Barge Thalatta Interiors Photo Shoot

An interiors photo shoot of the beautifully restored Thames Sailing Barge Thalatta.¬†With the help of a Heritage Lottery grant, Thalatta was restored to an ‘as new’ condition in 2012 (when she was the incredible age of 106!). The main sleeping and living area of the barge is in what was originally the cargo hold. A large central table is surrounded by hammocks and sea chests for 12 people. There are also three private cabins just off the main area, and further accommodation for the Skipper and crew is tucked away in the bow and stern.

Thalatta is owned by the East Coast Sail Trust, and for the last 40 years has been run as a sail training boat for children. Thalatta can be booked for private use as well as by schools. More information on that can be found here. My graphic design work for the East Coast Sail Trust can be seen here.
