SNARK sailing off Stoke Fleming


It can be difficult to find appropriate ways to thank your customers and clients for their ongoing support. The SNARK offers a unique venue for a business lunch, marketing presentations, activity days and more. We can mix the excitement of being onboard an operating sea-going sailing boat with the facilities of a well equipped meeting venue.

She can accommodate up to 32 guests for static quayside events and meals. Delicious refreshments and meals are served by the crew in sharing bowls and platters. The menus are inspired by authentic home cooking in Moorish Spain, Italy, England, and are adapted to locally sourced seasonal ingredients.

The SNARK is a fully licensed vuenue, serving a simple range of carefully selected wines, beer and soft drinks over the counter. Drinks can be pre-purchased by the organiser. We do not provide table service or run tabs.

The open plan salon / galley is brightly lit with natural daylight, well heated and ventilated. Accoustic music and speeches work in the space without the need for amplifications.

The cosy space in the owners cabin comes with its own log burning stove, and view of the dramatic masts and riggings above through the deck lights.
There are opportunities for photos on deck and, if the guests are up to it, learning the ropes from the skipper!

Although based in Exeter in the winter, the SNARK can be located in any suitable West Country port as a start point for unforgettable experience on the water.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
