Our Vessels

We operate four vessels from Portree Harbour, in the Isle of Skye. All of our vessels are fully MCA coded and insured for 12 passengers and 2 crew. Our boats are suitable for all ages - with the exception of our RIB, Saorsa of Skye, which is suitable from ages 5+.

MV Stardust

The original boat of our fleet, operating our Portree Bay Trip. She has been part of our fleet since Stardust Boat Trips began in 1998. She is a monohull, 3 metres wide by 10 metres long, and an excellent and comfortable sea boat.

MV Stardust II

Stardust II was added to our fleet in 2014 and is one of the two boats that operates our Sound of Raasay trips. This catamaran offers a fly-bridge as well as a comfortable and spacious seating area on the deck, and she can provide some stunning views and photo opportunities, as well as a safe, smooth and comfortable trip. 

This boat is wheelchair accessible.

Wavedancer

Wavedancer is the newest boat in our fleet, added in 2022. She is also a catamaran and also operates our Sound of Raasay trips. This boat offers a viewing platform up forward, which is an excellent vantage point for dolphin-spotting and taking in some of Skye’s spectacular scenery. There is also a comfortable and spacious seating area on the main deck.

Saorsa of Skye

Our fast RIB launched in 2021, Saorsa of Skye is a fast and agile boat, capable of covering a great distance on our trips. This boat can get you closer than ever to Skye’s fantastic sea cliffs and wildlife. She operates two tours: Our Sea Eagle Trail and our Skye Whale Trail. She boasts a spacious area up forward to move about to glimpse some of the amazing animals we hope to see – ideal for when we’ve got some dolphins on our bow!
