Solway Lass, the Whitsundays Magnificent 127 ft Traditional Tall ship is the perfect vessel to use for a memorable wedding.
The boat was 100 years old in April 2002 and has all the old world charm that goes with a sailing vessel from yesteryear.The boat remains in excellent condition after major restoration works in 1983, 1999, 2002 & 2006.During the 1980s and 90s on SydneyHarbour, approximately 1000 weddings were conducted aboard Solway Lass.
Solway Lass's rigging, lines and gleaming brass provides the perfect props to take many unique wedding photos.
Solway Lass is available for day charters on Saturdays between and We recommend 60 - 75 passengers aboard the boat, even though we can carry more it becomes a little too cosy & makes catering etc difficult.
