Syntan Barge on River Hull Syntan Sailing

With the Syntan now a static resource moored on Beverley Beck she is available for hire as a meeting venue. She is fully equipped with audio-visual equipment and is ideal for presentations and training in a unique environment.

Unfortunately due to distancing issues we are unable to have visitors during the Covid outbreak. To give you a flavour of our boats and facilities we've created a short video presentation:

In normal years School parties are very welcome and the floating museum concept gives schoolchildren of all ages the chance to see what life was once like on the Beck, and on the barges that plied their trade between Hull Docks and Beverley.

Why not consider the Syntan as a future party venue? We can supply everything you need to make it go with a nautical swing.
