Boat trips at Crinan on MV Sgarbh

Experience wonderful boat trips at Crinan on the MV Sgarbh on some of the finest cruising waters in the world, never mind just the west coast of Scotland.

MV SgarbhThe Sgarbh is a fully restored classic motor boat moored at Crinan right outside the hotel which overlooks the Crinan Canal, the gateway to the Atlantic and the islands.

The Sgarbh (gaelic for cormorant, the sea bird) was built in 1947 on the river Clyde in Glasgow as a herring fishing boat. She retired from fishing in 1953 and then was beautifully fitted out below for cruising.

She is built of teak, fully varnished and completely original, the last of her type. Weighing over 20 tons and at 40 foot long she is solid and safe.

Boat trips and more extensive charters can be tailored to suit your preferences with personalised itineraries. The boat is coded for up to 12 passengers during the day and 4 passengers for overnight charters. Fresh seafood and other local produce can be prepared by the hotel and served during your cruise.
