Private Hire pricing

Hire The Matthew March - November

Thank you for your interest in hiring The Matthew. We offer a number of options aboard The Matthew from static quayside hire in our usual mooring at the M Shed to private cruises with a range of catering options to match. We aim to tailor what we provide to make your event absolutely right for you, whether it be a work night out, wedding, birthday or anniversary celebration. You can add on static hire to extend your trip. 

The ship can accommodate 40 people for a cruise or 50 people for a static hire. Although there is some seating on board, The Matthew is best suited to informal, standing events. Take a look at our prices below and get in touch at info@matthew.co.uk to talk through your idea for an event and any questions.
