Since 1963 Babbacombe Model Village in Torquay has offered visitors an ever-changing world of miniaturisation. With models, gardens and famous landmarks all in 1/12 scale. Now with indoor features - making this an all-year-round, all-weather attraction
The purpose built “Western Lady VI” and “Western Lady VII” are approx. 60 ft in length with a 20 ft beam, although half the size of our old Fairmile's they can actually accommodate the same number of passengers as the old boats 170 plus.
Being of a more modern design they can readily host disco cruises, private parties, evening cruises and trips to special events.
They also keep up the ferry sailing tradition of the past sixty four years.
