Boatafloat says

Available to take up to 15 passengers for skippered charter from Portsmouth's historic dockyard. 

Although she may be big, Alice is far from sluggish. Her sails include a mainsail, topsail, foresail, staysails and mizzen, which span 3,500 square feet in total to catch the maximum wind possible. She also has a 125hp diesel Engine, which was fitted in 2005, to help her nip across the Solent while being sedate enough to allow you to take in the view. Her 5 KVA generator provides electricity for the barge, and VHF radio is also available.

Her rooms are impressive both in style and stature, coming in a range of sizes with separate crew quarters. The large saloon room, which is 500 square feet and can fit up to 20 guests, boasts 4 sofa beds for overnight stays and includes comfortable seating. Other cabins sleep up to two or three, with Alice containing four 2-berth cabins and one 3-berth cabin. There are 3 toilet facility rooms, one with a power shower and another even has a bath. Altogether, Alice has 15 beds, with all cabins having central heating via a log burner, living areas, large, flat screen TVs and high-quality sound systems.

If you’re a taller person, there’s no need to worry about getting backache by stooping for the entirety of your time below deck – full standing headroom is 8ft, meaning, even the very tall shouldn’t have an issue. 

Also on board is a barge RIB for those who want to take a walk on the wild side. Reaching high speeds up to 50mph, our RIB provides our more daring passengers with a way to see the Solent up close and personal. This speedy little boat takes you on a brisk tour over the waves and ensures you won’t be disappointed with your experience.
