Established in 1954, Falmouth Boat Hire has consistently delivered on customer satisfaction, unforgettable memories (the good kind!) and friendly, professional service. Our competitive prices are some of the best locally considering our boats are large, easy to manoeuvre and posses a distinct "Cathedral Hull" design that increases stability on the water even in rougher weather compared to the typical 'flat bottom' or 'V hull' designs. 

Recently 'Falmouth Boat Hire' has become 'Falmouth and Penryn Boat Hire Ltd.'. Dave Fearn is the managing director running in partnership with George Pill. Between them they have over 60 years worth of experience and knowledge of boating in the local harbour, rivers and waterways. From rowing around the harbour as young boys, crewing as teenagers to skippering their own fleet of pleasure boats. Both owners have spent their lives working in the boating and tourism industry in the local area so be rest assured that they will always strive to provide satisfaction, value for money and a great experience.


Falmouth and Penryn Boat Hire runs April through to October day in day out (weather permitting). On arrival you will have a full safety brief of how to use the equipment provided, where you can and can't go and also a brief introduction to your vessel. Hire times span from just 1 hour right up to 8 hour hires. So why not book yourself a trip to explore the beautiful scenery of Falmouth, Carrick Roads and the River Fal.
