Let's talk about The Little Mermaid – a true marvel born at the Southampton boat show in 1999 under the name Millennium. Originally a 36ft Corvette bullet designed for offshore use, it can brave winds up to Beaufort 8 and 4 meters of significant wave height. When Ian took the helm, he gave her a new identity as The Little Mermaid.

Certified by the MCA as a category 2 vessel, The Little Mermaid can carry up to 12 passengers and 2 crew members, venturing up to 60 miles from a safe haven. We prioritize safety, meeting the highest standards with compliance to MGN280 regulations.

Since Ian's ownership, The Little Mermaid has undergone impressive upgrades, including a new engine that makes it one of the fastest boats in St. Ives Harbour. Fasten your seatbelts for a comfortable and exhilarating experience on the water!
