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 over but we will be back doing trips again in 2020. Please phone for information and to book. 

Over the winter period she will be taken out of the water at the Yar boatyard for her yearly Maritime and Coastguard Agency surveys. Also during this time the crew, the painters and the shipwrights will be working on her so that she is in tip-top  condition and ready for the 2020 season.

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 Saturdays she does trips  over to Lymington, it’s market day.

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.
