The traditional working vessels of the East Coast evolved over centuries to be purposeful craft, perfectly tailored for their tasks – be it the elegant fishing smacks or the powerful sailing barge.
In the modern era, they have become a relic of a past age. However, for the survivors, the craft have taken on a new life and are the perfect platform for the public to enjoy the East Coast rivers they were designed to work on and reconnect with Britain’s great maritime heritage.
Tiller and Wheel Ltd, established in 2019, aims to provide greater access to these craft for all and in doing so, ensure they have a sustainable future ongoing.
Please explore the website to learn more and we look forward to welcoming you aboard.
