Charter

Welcome to the Wooden Ships Charter page. Here we will be advertising a small number of traditional charter vessels operating in various parts of the UK and abroad, each of them offering fantastic experiences and the chance to get hands on with a 'proper boat'!

These are all boats we know well, some we have sold in the past, some of them Richard has skippered and has first hand experience of sailing them, but every boat is able to offer a great experience to people of all abilities and experience levels, whether you want to lie on deck and simply take in the surroundings or get very hands on with setting sails, navigating and helming a traditional vessel.

The links below will take you to the individual websites for each boat where you can find out more about the locations, prices and availability for the coming season

Bessie Ellen

Bessie Ellen is an impressive sight under sail.  Built as a cargo vessel at the beginning of last century she is an example of superb craftsmanship combined with a fascinating history.

Today, the working life of our ship has changed to provide adventures under sail where our crew are committed to giving you an authentic experience of traditional sailing ships and to share our passion for sailing with you. With short breaks, week cruises longer voyages, this year in Cornwall, the Hebrides and St Kilda we will strive to make your adventure, cruise or holiday voyage an enduring memory.
