Positive Reviews

Different and enjoyable.

This is certainly different and there are some great views to be enjoyed, particularly from the higher level. The kitchen is nice and well fitted out.

Waves of enthusiasm.

The relaxing sounds of the sea are to be heard at all times, making this a uniquely enjoyable experience - overall. The music from the bar next door is in keeping with the location and isn't at all obtrusive. One of a number of highlights is to sit on the upper deck … and just watch the dolphins.

Sunny horizons.

You don't have to go far for restaurants and shops; they're just a stroll away.  It's more memorable than a break in a hotel and if the weather is rotten, just batten down the hatches, open a bottle of wine and prepare a warming meal. If you long for something different, then this is something you must try.

Negative Reviews

Some choppy waters.

The publicity material is really enticing and attractive. Unfortunately, it doesn't relate to this vessel at all. The big plus sign is the great bar, just next door. It stays open till the early hours -and will help you forget some of the defects here.

Not plain sailing.

It's difficult getting luggage on and off the boat and this must be an amusing thing for others to watch. Another game ‘they' play is actually moving the boat to another location ... so you can spend some hours actually finding it.

Ripples of discontent.

It's a heck of a jump from dry land onto the boat. They say it will sleep four people - but accommodation is cramped so you'll need to be extremely close friends! The owner is difficult to track down should you have any queries.
