Boat Hire 2023 

Give your event the wow factor and impress your guests as you cruise past Liverpool and Wirral's world-famous waterfront, on your very own Mersey Ferry for the night.

Our historic vessels are available for exclusive hire, so whether it’s a birthday party, wedding reception, product launch or a night out for your friends and family, we can help. You can hire the Royal Iris of the Mersey with her traditional black, white, and red livery or the UK’s only operating Dazzle Ship ‘Snowdrop’ (subject to availability).

Our ferries are available for private hire from 7.30pm throughout the week including weekends and bank holidays. The vessels have a main deck and upper deck with total capacity of up to 300 guests. Our flexible catering team can prepare a range of options for your guests: from a simple, yet delicious finger buffet; to canapés, a superb fork buffet or hot food such as their famous Scouse dish. Bars are available on both decks with a good selection of alcoholic and soft drinks to keep your guests refreshed.

The Mersey Ferries team is on hand to help plan and organise your event and can also help you to find top quality local tribute bands, DJs, photobooths and much more. Alternatively, you can bring your own entertainment on board at no extra charge.
