Our two vessels are of a type that was once a familiar sight in the docks of Hull and on the river’s Humber, Trent and Ouse. It is with these type of sailing barge that produce and raw materials was transported throughout our region from the 12th century.  It is the Societies aim to preserve them in as near to original working condition as possible while being able to demonstrate their sailing ability out on the river with up to 12 passenger to enjoy the experience.
