History

Built in 1948, DARTMOUTH CASTLE is a passenger vessel with the capacity for 309 passengers. She has been fully restored to her original specification, with her hull shot-blasted and epoxy coated and runs birdwatching trips during the winter on the River Exe, operating a ferry service in the summer months on the River Exe, Dart and around Torbay.
