Our Boats 

Planning a week night gathering? Why not take advantage of our reduced rate cruises, with the Early Bird Special. Privately charter your own boat for a two hour cruise, at a discounted rate, available from Monday to Friday from 5 to 7pm. 

The Ronnoch Mor

Meaning King Mackerel in Gaelic, our trusty fishing vessel, The Ronnoch Mor is a 35ft, purpose built, fibreglass boat. Strong and sturdy, the Ronnoch Mor is great for getting out on the water, in all weather conditions, come rain or shine! With plenty of space for up to 18 passengers and toilet facilities on board she’s the perfect boat for a great day’s fishing.

The Island Princess

This traditional 70 seat wooden boat was built in the Channel Islands, originally for the Guernsey to Sark run, with on board toilet facilities and plenty of standing and sitting space for a comfortable voyage.

Although the Island Princess does not have the space and capacity of our larger boats, she is affectionately known as our trusty utility boat. Well maintained, strong and sturdy, The Island Princess is able to act as a safe and reliable stand in boat across the operation.

The Edgcumbe Belle

Built, locally, forty years ago specifically for the Cremyll ferry operation, the aptly named Edgcumbe Belle has served as a safe and loyal foot passenger ferry for many years. A beautifully built, sleek and slender traditional wooden boat, she takes up to 128 passengers.

The Weston Maid

Part of the fabric of the community, The Weston Maid or Red Pig, as she’s affectionately known by the locals, offers a 30 minute sailing to and from the Barbican Landing Stage in Plymouth, directly onto Cawsand Beach.

A 40ft, purpose built, passenger vessel, The Weston Maid was built as a lifeboat for the ocean liner, Canberra. An extremely elegant and famous passenger ship, The Canberra was the first ship in the world to have lifeboats specifically designed to slot neatly into compartments in the side of the ship, and could also transport passengers from ship to shore.

The trusty Weston Maid has travelled many thousands of miles all over the world, with true pedigree!  The Weston Maid is M.C.A. Licensed to carry 64 passengers.

The Spirit of Plymouth

The Spirit of Plymouth is a sleek, modern and luxurious cruise boat – fitted with comfortable seating and dining tables, throughout a heated, oak decked saloon. ‘The Spirit’ is perfect for corporate events, relaxed river cruises, more intimate parties and family occasions. Also recently refurbished, this super stylish boat is perfect for groups of 20 to 100 passengers. The Spirit of Plymouth also has a fully licensed bar and great sound system for your own music playlist, or we can provide the tunes. 

The Plymouth Sound

The Plymouth Sound is a comfortable and spacious cruise boat. Recently refurbished, she holds up to 190 passengers. A spacious, sturdy and modern boat, with fully licensed bar, fantastic sound system and DJ decks – The Plymouth Sound is the ultimate ‘on the water’ events venue. Evening parties and events involving a licensed bar being in operation are restricted to a maximum of 150 passengers.

The Plymouth Venturer

Launched in 2017, the Plymouth Venturer is the largest passenger boat in Plymouth, offering a new level of luxury cruising in the South West.

The ultimate, floating party venue, The Plymouth Venturer holds up to 240 passengers.  The heated saloon area is furnished with comfortable seating and dining tables. The large, wood decked dance floor is party ready and there’s plenty of room to stroll around the open front, rear and large upper deck, with optional seating.

With on board cafe, licenced bar and toilet facilities, The Plymouth Venturer makes the perfect venue for any occasion, from private parties to corporate events.
