The Coral Star lies quietly on her mooring at the entrance to Yarmouth Harbour, she is a beautiful wooden passenger boat. The skipper and crew live in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, just a short walk away.

On every nice day 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)
When the weather is nice on Wednesday and Sunday evenings, she does sun downer trips to view the Needles channel, we leave Yarmouth at 6pm. The sun is over the yardarm and the bar is open.
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
