Bessie Ellen

A west country trading ship built in 1904, Bessie Ellen visited Fowey while we were there. Built in Plymouth in 1904 she has had a remarkable working life and is currently part of the UK core collection of historic vessels sailing with charter crews around the UK and Europe.

She was a majestic sight making way slowly up the harbour, just the sort of vessel which would have visited Fowey a hundred years ago.

Everything seemed very relaxed and the crew all seemed to be well practiced.

Heading for the visitors pontoon.


  1. I think I went on board Bessie Ellen at the Southampton Boat Show last year - nice looking boat!

  2. JP she looks fast just tied up at the dock
