The Boat

The Coral Star lies quietly on her mooring at the entrance to Yarmouth Harbour, she is a beautiful wooden passenger boat. The season of 2019 is sadly almost over. We will still be doing some trips please phone for information.

A Video of the Needles trip

The Coral Star takes people down the Needles channel to see the Needles rocks. On the way she passes the finest scenery of the island. Hurst castle, Fort Albert, Totland Bay and Cowell Bay. We sweep close inshore as we cruise by. (If the weather is horrible we don’t go, it depends on the wind and tide, skippers decision)

On Saturdays she does a trip over to Lymington, it’s market day.

You can also catch her from Lymington for a trip to Yarmouth and maybe the Needles on Saturdays too.

She is available for hire for a few hours or even a day for private trips.

She was built in 1962 in the West Country, She has always been a tripping boat. She has worked mostly in the Paignton/Dartmouth/Brixham  areas.

She had a major refurbishment  in 2018 and is in a very good condition.

She is licenced by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) to safely carry 62 passengers, but for passenger comfort we limit the passengers to about 40. If you have a large group please phone for details.

She has a licenced bar onboard with cool soft and alcoholic drinks available.

Please phone to avoid disappointment
