What's special about this boat

Staying onboard a National Heritage vessel is a truly unique experience.
You can travel back in time,surrounded by the gentle lapping of the sea whilst you enjoy the mellow handcrafted timbers and traditional brass fittings.
The expansive deck area provides a great space for sunbathing and alfresco dining or just to sit and watch the world go by.
The pontoon is usually bustling with historic and visiting craft from around the coast and you are sure to strike up an interesting conversation or two with visiting crews eager to share stories of their seafaring adventures! Down below the traditional materials and craftsmanship continue but this time combined with all the modern day comforts and amenities that really set Pilgrim apart.
Brixham is still a fully working fishing port with its pretty multi-coloured cottages rising up around the harbour bowl.
We have a resident seal family that frequent the inner and outer harbour areas throughout the year, so be sure to keep a lookout for them alongside!
