Broker's Comments

Although originally launched in Southend in 1921 and sailed extensively on the Thames in London as ‘The Thames Britannia’, this beautiful and traditional sight seeing old girl was completely rebuilt from the keel upwards and re-launched locally here in Plymouth, in 1985.

Perfect for river cruises, parties and other family celebrations, she has a great all round view with space for passengers on the bows, at the stern, inside out of any inclement weather and outside on the spacious upper deck in the glorious summer sun. She comes with her own well stocked licensed bar and a great sound system to increase your enjoyment.

This swift vessel has her Class 5 & 6 MCA certification for all year round operation, is licensed to carry 147 passengers and is completely up to date with her safety certification.

She's often seen full to the gunwales on regular sight seeing trips around the local area here in Plymouth, Devon and it’s due to this high demand, that the owner is reluctantly selling at the end of this season in order to acquire a larger vessel.

All offers considered. Price + VAT.
