St Osyth Boatyard

Here at St Osyth Boatyard, we are lucky enough to have a Thames Sailing Barge in residence. Sailing Barge EDME was built in 1898 and was originally used to transport cargo. She is one of only three engineless barges still sailing and is rigged and sailed as she would have been when she was trading. The current owners, a group of shareholders and sailing enthusiasts, have owned her since 1989 and she was relaunched ready to race in 1992. Nowadays she is used to compete in the Sailing Barge Matches that take place in various locations around the East Coast throughout the year, and is also available to charter and for short breaks alongside

St Osyth Boatyard Quay.
