Meet our fleet

Our fleet of ships includes seven vehicle and passenger ferries and two passenger-only FastCats, serving our three convenient routes between the Isle of Wight and Hampshire.

Each of our ships comes with excellent facilities, including pet-friendly areas and sun decks from which to take in the stunning views across the Solent. For your comfort, all our ships are non-smoking vessels.

You can sample a piece of the Island on board each of our vehicle ferries, too, with an assortment of Isle of Wight-sourced food and drinks available in our Wight Taste outlets.
