Wherever possible we have tried to make the boat as accessible as possible. Sadly, we’re unable to remove all obstructions as it is a vintage, metal boat. 

Currently, the boat is only accessible using steps which makes it unsuitable for individuals with mobility challenges or in wheelchairs. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.
