Silver Marlin

A little piece of history

The Silver Marlin has become an icon of Loch Lomond since her journey from the Thames in 1992 where, during the 60's and 70's she was the premier charter vessel. Famous passengers have included the Apollo 11 crew during their world tour following the moon landing and Emperor Shōwa of Japan during his first state visit to the UK after WWII. It was aboard the Silver Marlin that the late Donald Dewar announced that Loch Lomond and The Trossachs was to be crowned Scotland's first ever national park, giving the boat itself a place in the history of Loch Lomond.
