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 local Cawsand Ferry commuters, is a 40ft, purpose built, 64 passenger vessel. 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.
The Weston Maid is now part of our e-Project working towards the governments’ Clean Maritime Plan, to have zero-carbon, fully electric commercial vessels operating within the South-West. Read more … News & Events
