The Little Mermaid was built for the Southampton boat show in 1999 originally named Millennium. She is a 36ft Corvette bullet designed as a category B vessel for offshore use. Designed to handle winds up to beaufort 8 and 4 meters significant wave height. When purchased by Ian we re-named her to the Little Mermaid.

The boat is coded by the MCA to be a category 2 vessel, this enables us to travel 60 miles from safe haven with up to 12 passengers and 2 crew.

We are compliant with the MGN280, meeting the highest standards of safety. 

Since Ian purchased the boat it has been through a number of upgrades, including a new engine which makes the Little Mermaid one of the fastest boats in St. Ives Harbour allowing for a comfortable and exhilarating experience.

We are WiSe Accredited upholding the aim of minimising the disturbance to marine wildlife by promoting responsible wildlife watching. 

WiSe Accreditation is obtained through training, certification and helping to raise awareness.
