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, Cowell Bay and Alum Bay. We sweep close inshore as we cruise by. 

On the weekend she does trips  over to Lymington, On Saturday it’s market day and Sunday Lunch is very pleasant in Lymington 

You can also catch her from Lymington for a trip to Yarmouth and you can take the trip down to the Needles too, if you wish.

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

Wedding blessings, Renewing vows, christenings, ash scattering, hen & stag parties. Pick-up from Yarmouth, Lymington or Cowes.

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.
