To give you a flavour of our boats and facilities we've created a short video presentation:

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.

If you require further information call or text 07951 544008, or by email on
