Alice is a vast Thames Sailing barge, reaching 23.5m in length. Her beam is a colossal 5.5m and her draught, the distance between the water and the bottom of the hull, i.e. how far she sits in the water, is 1.1m; her very small draught allows Alice to make her way through far shallower water than normal yachts with larger draught. This makes her perfect for the relatively shallow waters of the Solent.
Her rooms are impressive both in style and stature, coming in a range of sizes with separate crew quarters. The large saloon room, which is 500 square feet and can fit up to 20 guests, boasts 4 sofa beds for overnight stays and includes comfortable seating. Other cabins sleep up to two or three, with Alice containing four 2-berth cabins and one 3-berth cabin. There are 3 toilet facility rooms, one with a power shower and another even has a bath. Altogether, Alice has 15 beds, with all cabins having central heating via a log burner, living areas, large, flat screen TVs and high quality sound systems.
Also on board is a barge RIB for those who want to take a walk on the wild side. Reaching high speeds up to 50mph, our RIB provides our more daring passengers with a way to see the Solent up close and personal. This speedy little boat takes you on a brisk tour over the waves and ensures you won’t be disappointed with your experience.
