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.

You can charter MV Sun for a special occasion or organisation for a maximum of 12 people.
