Our Farne Islands Boats

We now operate three modern and well equipped catamaran vessels, Serenity I, II and III.

Serenity

Serenity is the latest vessel to join our fleet. She has just joined us in mid August 2018 and is a pleasure to handle. We sold our last monohulled vessel and with Serenity II and III being more stable platform we decided to have another purpose built vessel added to the fleet. She is slightly bigger than Serenity II and III but over all the same lay out and the perfect platform for viewing the Farne Islands and wildlife.

Serenity II

Serenity II was the first purpose built catamaran for trips and tours of the Farne Islands. The design proved very popular with guests, especially bird watchers and photographers who enjoy the 360 degree platform, enhanced double hulled stability and the ability to get close to the cliff faces. The designs of the more modern Serenity and Serenity III followed the success of Serenity II.

Serenity III

Serenity III joined us mid season 2016. We were were proud and delighted to have our 2nd purpose built catamaran based upon the similar design of Serenity II.

Facilities

Toilet facilities are available on both Serenity, Serenity II and Serenity III. Full commentary is available as we tour the Farne Islands and we also have on board wildlife guides to help with any questions you may have. All our vessels are licensed by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency and are fitted with the latest safety and navigational equipment.

Disabled Access

Serenity I and II have wheelchair access when the level of the tide is suitable to allow us to use the harbour slipway. PLEASE NOTE: If your wheelchair is an extra wide one we can’t get it on board, sorry. If it is a motorised or battery operated wheelchair we will try our best to get it on the boat but it depends on how heavy it is as we still have to give it a little lift to get it on. Please contact us in advance so we are able to do our best to help you out.
