The Swan Trust

Boat Tour

The Swan Trust, 8 Sandyloch Drive, Lerwick, Shetland, ZE1 0SR

    Sail aboard the Swan, a unique opportunity to sail on a traditional Fifie fishing smack.

    The Swan is a fully restored herring drifter from 1900, used today as a sail-training vessel. 

    A trip onboard the Swan will give you experience of the sailing techniques used in those days, and an insight into a way of life, which has now passed into our maritime history.

    There is no age limit or the need for previous sailing experience - anyone can join the Swan on one of her voyages. You can apply to come on one of the organised trips, or for a holiday with a difference you can charter the Swan with the crew, and take up to 11 friends along.  In the summer season the Swan Trust run evening cruises from local harbours.
