New on the water in 2011, Campbell (previously Exonia) was bought from a ferry company operating in Portsmouth. She has undergone a total re-build (apart from the hull) by Patterson Boatworks in Hawkshead. Pattersons converted her from a sea-faring vessel to a traditional lakeland launch.

Campbell can cater for up to 63 passengers and is currently our main launch.
