Unique to Edinburgh, you’re all but guaranteed a memorable stay aboard Camillia Boatel… one you’re sure to boast about to your friends and family for some time to come!

A stunning lime-green vessel sleeping up to eight adults and their well-behaved dog, Camillia was expertly designed and bespoke-crafted using the highest quality materials, and is permanently moored in Lochrin Basin, the centrepiece of Edinburgh Quay.  

A mere ten-minute walk from Edinburgh’s vibrant city centre, you’ll never be at a loss for anything to do! That is, if you can bear to step off board.  

With plenty of room for everybody to socialise and enjoy private time in equal measure, there are three private, sumptuous two-bed cabins, and a double sofa bed in the spacious lounge area.

Of course, you can expect plenty of luxurious facilities, including a well-equipped kitchen for seafaring feasts of epic proportions, and an indulgent shower room that features eco-friendly toiletries and fluffy robes.

There’s plenty of attention to detail throughout, too, ensuring there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Relax in the electric massage chair, open a book from the well-stocked library and get delightfully lost, or simply unwind in front of the plasma TV with a welcome tipple.  

Competitive types, meanwhile, will enjoy challenging their loved ones to one of the many board games to be discovered on board!
