Built in 1949 by R W Hawthorn Leslie at Hebburn on Tyne, the Jacobite Queen was originally christened the Tyne Queen. Her early days were spent serving as a passenger ferry on the Tyne. We bought her in 1987 and then rebuilt, refurbished and renamed her along the traditional lines of a small steamer. There is accommodation on each of the three centrally heated decks. We’ve double glazed her and today the Jacobite Queen can take up to 159 passengers with plenty of choice for either covered or deck seating. The 450HP Volvo D12 diesel engine gives this 23 metre boat a service speed of 10.5 knots.
