The Boat – new restaurant takes inspiration from NY

1 min read

The licence for what is being dubbed the Solent’s first luxury floating restaurant, spread over three decks has been granted by the Isle of Wight Council.

The Boat, a 34 metre, fully refurbished yacht, will be based at Venture Quays in East Cowes and sail out into the Solent.

It will be run by the Freehold Group, taking inspiration from the Grand Banks Oyster Bar on the Hudson River in New York. It is planned to open it as soon as possible, but it will trade primarily over the summer.
