The vessels cruise the calm waters of the Rivers Orwell, Alde and Ore during which freshly-prepared wholesome foods are served, normally from an a la carte menu.
Both vessels are historic wooden World War 2 boats, so have the style, character and history of fine wooden ships.
With Allen Gardiner having been converted by us after ten years’ experience with Lady Florence, she has a commercial catering galley, allowing menu choices not possible on
Lady Florence. And after ten years on Durban Harbour, the South African influence has introduced very different and unusual dishes.
At present, both vessels cater for a maximum of twelve passengers, although it is planned to accommodate greater numbers on the Allen Gardiner.
Both vessels operate all year round including Christmas Day, and the Allen Gardiner can operate after dark with a Candlelit Dinner cruise.
