Wooden Ships Comments on this Commercial Dining Charter Vessel

This vessel is part of a successful local Falmouth based business and is now running for its sixth season offering harbour excursions with beautiful meals aboard a fine vessel.

The vessel was built by Curtis and Pape of Looe in 1971 as a fishing vessel.

Purchased by the current owners in a dilapidated state, she was given a thorough refit in 2018 and converted into the fine vessel she is today.  Much of the hull planking and framing was replaced, the hull totally re-fastened, a new wheelhouse and deck layout fitted with all new systems and machinery bringing her up to the standard required.

As a platform for functions and group outings on the water she is excellent, mixing the charm and relaxing atmosphere of a traditional boat with all the modern systems and conveniences to ensure the guests time aboard is exactly as they wish.

Full details of the business available on request.  This is an established business in the Falmouth area with a mix of returning customers and new clients.  Trips are tailored to suit the needs of the client with options for various locations, lengths of trips and different times of day.  She is licenced to operate in Falmouth and Helford.  The vessel is a licenced bar to sell alcohol.

This business could be added to an existing hospitality establishment ashore as another option for guests, getting people afloat and seeing the local area from a different perspective, or taken on by an enthusiastic new owner to continue with the same very successful business model.

Owners comments

Blue River Table is in it’s sixth year and after a very successful five years now seems like the right time to explore options for selling the business.

At Blue River Table we pride ourselves in providing a truly unique dining experience on the River Fal. Famed for producing banquet style feasts of local produce for parties up to twelve whilst cruising the stunning local waterways.

‘Tethra’ is a beautifully converted traditional motor launch which lends herself perfectly to this and we have an excellent history of repeat business and a great reputation that we’ve built over the years. Whilst our dining experiences are really well established and attended alongside this, Tethra also has proved herself as an excellent venue such as for talks, event & parties.
