Based in Weymouth Harbour, on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, TS Pelican is the perfect blend of traditional and modern.

The ship has 3 decks. On one side is the historic Custom House Quay, whilst the other side looks across the harbour to boats and colourful Georgian terraced houses. There is nothing quite like sitting on deck in the morning with a steaming hot cup of tea watching the fishing boats sail out of the harbour.

Weymouth is a seaside resort with plenty to offer. The beach is a stone’s throw from the ship’s berth, as are the town centre, local cafes, bars and restaurants.

Weymouth also has a Sealife Park and Sealife Tower, Chesil Beach, the stunning Jurassic coastline, Nothe Fort, Isle of Portland and Sandworld. Also M0nkey World is just half an hour away.

A night on board TS Pelican is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and for sailing enthusiasts it is a dream come true.

From £65.00 pp a night

TS Pelican is a main-mast barquentine tall ship featuring a unique square rig. She is 45 metres in length and 226GRT. Built in Le Havre, France, in 1948, Pelican has had a varied career before being brought to UK waters and transformed into the only main-mast barquentine in the world. Her maiden voyage was from her home-port of Weymouth in 2007 and since then she has sailed around the world, visiting UK, Irish and Scottish waters, Europe, and as far as the Caribbean.

On board there are 7 cabins, each of which have 4 bunks - sleeping a total of up to 28 people. Some of these can be made into double beds, but otherwise they are single bunks.

5 of the cabins have en suite facilities with a toilet, basin, bath and shower. There are 2 additional bathrooms for general use. All bedding is provided, and there are 3-pin power-points for hair-dryers, chargers, etc.

The ship also has heating and air conditioning to suit any environment.

There's also a mess (dining) area which can comfortably seat around 20 people to dine or commune, and a saloon with TV, DVD player and small library for relaxation.

Outside there are 3 decks. On one side is the historic Custom House Quay, whilst the other side looks across the harbour to boats and colourful Georgian terraced houses. There is nothing quite like sitting on deck in the morning with a steaming hot cup of tea watching the fishing boats sail out of the harbour.
