The 'Maid' is available for all types of private events or functions, providing a unique setting with unrivalled views. Whether it's an office party, club outing, family celebration, corporate event, team building and fun days etc, we can be available for a daytime cruise or an evening event.

For evening events we recommend you restrict numbers to around 80 which is the number we can comfortably accommodate in the heated lower deck.  If you only have around 20 guests for an evening party you can simply block book tickets for one of our scheduled evening cruises which may be more cost effective.


Entertainment can be provided subject to availability by our resident Jazz band, DJ and disco, 'Pure Malt' Folk band or our vocalist Cailean McLean of CMC Vocals.   

Catering options start at £5.95pp for coffee and cakes, and our popular BBQ Rib eye steak supper is £10.00pp.  We have a wide range of catering options available, and can be flexible with dietary requirements if arranged in advance. 

All drinks must be purchased from our well stocked bar. 

We have a wide selection of wines if you wish to offer a welcome or celebratory drink.

Please contact us by email if you are interested in a private charter.  Please have a note of your requested date and type of event and we can tailor a package to suit your needs.

These events are extremely popular, especially at peak times, so if you have a specific date in mind we recommend early booking.
