Our Boats

 

Safe Anchor Trust owns five boats, each with a different specification to meet individual group requirements. You can read more about them below. Wherever possible we do try to allocate your preferred choice of boat but sometimes we have to make changes to accommodate the needs of passengers, other groups and crew.

All our boats are skippered by a qualified volunteer helmsman and trained crew. All volunteers have been cleared by the UK Disclosure and Barring Service.
