About Us

Hawkesbury River Charter

Hawkesbury River Charter was started 18 years ago by John and Kris Ashton-Martin.  We are proud to have taken over the mantle and added our own brand of hospitality to this fine business.

When we go boating ourselves, we like to grab some clothes, food, what we want to drink and get going.  We don’t want to have to pack the car for an epic camping trip, trying to remember all the essentials, bedding, salt, pepper, etc.  We want to give you that feeling of relaxation and complete readiness.  Beds are made, basic pantry items onboard, sunscreen, moisturiser, toothbrushes (in case you forget), games, books, DVDs.  Walk on…. relax…. feel at home.

Welcome aboard!
