She provides the perfect base for Hebridean wildlife watching and onshore exploration. With a list of remote anchorages and moorings in their knowledge, the crew know all the best spots to take guests. From local Sea Eagle nests, seal colonies and Puffin watching on Canna, Iain the skipper has lived in the Hebrides all his life so has a vast knowledge of exploring Skye and the Small Isles.

Her size and shape makes her a really comfortable boat to motor through the water while giving generous spaces for guests to relax aboard. Her spacious saloon and separate galley sit at deck level while downstairs offers one double ensuite cabin (this can also be made into a 4-berth family cabin), two twin cabins and separate crew accommodation. No expense has been spared on Fleur de Lys with all her beds being full-size, pocket sprung mattress’!
