The Sgarbh is gaelic for cormorant, the sea bird.  She is built of teak, fully varnished and completely original, the last of her type.  Weighing over 20 tons and at 40 foot long she is solid and safe.  The boat is powered by a Gardner 6LX engine and also carries sails.

Charters can be tailored to suit your preferences with personalised itineraries.  The boat is coded for up to 12 passengers during the day and 4 passengers for overnight charters.  Fresh seafood and other local produce can be prepared on board or by the hotel and served during your cruise.
