We have a different view of Heritage Fleet

Evocative, stylish, in a class of their own, the boats of our heritage fleet are charming, traditional and smaller than the boats of our more modern fleet.

Whilst every boat in the City Cruises fleet is available for private hire, we have a fleet within the fleet which we call our bespoke boats or heritage fleet. These are more traditional in their style, featuring wood panelled interiors and are of a design more reminiscent of a bygone era, and even more characterful for it. We are very fond of our bespoke boats and if you are looking for a more intimate experience afloat, these are the boats for you.

They are the Mayflower Garden and the MV Westminster. Everyone is a gem in its own right.
