About the boat

The Mary Lloyd offers the perfect setting to spend a day on the water sharing the romance of a bygone era with a group of friends or family. She can comfortably accommodate up to six guests of all ages for a day of fun ; cruising, swimming, dining, exploring or just relaxing. 


The boat has a large comfortable back deck to lounge about on with a table to dine at. The area is partly shaded. Canvas sides can be rolled down to give shelter from the wind and rain should that ever be neccesary. The original swimming ladder makes taking a dip easy. The spacious bow of the boat is also a delightful place to spend time relaxing and soaking up the magic of the experience.

Inside the cabin are two sofas that convert to bunk beds, a small galley kitchen and bathroom with a hot shower and electric flush wc.  Catering for any occasion formal or informal can be arranged.


The Mary Lloyd was built in 1939 by ELCO. She is 30ft in length of cedar on white oak construction fitted and trimed with mahogany throughout with most of her original fixtures still in place. Her lines capture the romance and style of the 30's perfectly.

As far as we are aware there are no more afloat like her, she truly is unique!
