***THE CORAL STAR ***
The 2023 season is now over so the ferry operations with the Coral Star have stopped.
If you would like to hire the Coral Star, please call to see if we can accommodate next year.
For the 2024 season we will have a new boat.
She is a new build and will be able to operate all year and day and night.
We plan to do early and late departures to Lymington and Yarmouth.
We also be will be running trips to view the Needles rocks and lighthouse, from Lymington and Yarmouth.
The timetable for the new boat is yet to be formalised
The Coral Star.
The Coral Star will be doing mostly private hires next year
Yarmouth departure point is behind the lifeboat.
Lymington departure point is at the town Quay and, by request, the harbour master’s pontoon (better parking)
The harbour master’s pontoon is next to the sea water swimming pool, RLYC and lifeboat station in Lymington.
Booking is essential Tel: 01983 760212
She has a licensed bar onboard with cool soft and alcoholic drinks available.

Remember on Saturday it’s market day in Lymington, well worth a visit.
A boat ride across the Solent for Sunday lunch in the pub, is a very pleasant treat.
She is available for private hire
for a few hours or even a day. Wedding blessings, Renewing vows, christenings, ash scattering, hen & stag parties.
Pick-up from Yarmouth or Lymington. We can carry up to 40+ people
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.
Like all proper Domestic Passenger Ships she has to pass two MCA surveys each year and carries all the life saving and radio equipment necessary.
She is licenced by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) to safely carry 62 passengers, but that is very friendly. We prefer about 40 passengers.
All trips are weather permitting.
