1930’s values with a modern twist


Dorset Queen is the only vintage motor yacht operating on the South Coast of England.

She is believed to have taken part in the Dunkirk evacuations in 1940 and is now a proud member of The UK Historic Ships Register.

Originally built in 1938, she was lovingly restored by Dorset Cruises in 2008 and now plays host to many weddings, birthdays, corporate events, Gin Cruises, wine tastings, Champagne & Oyster Cruises and much more.

Our friendly team are always prepared to go the extra nautical mile to ensure that all of our events run smoothly and that our guests come back year after year.
