Built in 1949 by Hepworth at Paull near Hull, SYNTAN is an estuary and inland watercraft of steel construction with a Gardner inboard diesel engine, model 4LW. She was built for Hodgsons, a tannery in Beverley. In 1977, the tannery closed and she was bought by Waddingtons of Swinton and used as a general cargo vessel. From 2000, she has been owned by the Beverley Barge Preservation Society. She is now a fully restored Humber barge still sailing on her traditional routes. Carrying up to 12 passengers, she offers a new generation the chance to get hands on experience of this type of navigation.
