|Company comments||The main boat is a triple deck, modern passenger boat situated on the River Severn in Shrewsbury, capable of carrying 45 passengers in comfort with retractable roof and sides on the top deck. The boat company focuses on providing a first class service to both day and evening. You are sure to receive a great welcome. From the moment you step onboard and will enjoy an exemplary level of attention from the crew throughout your journey. We offer the opportunity to meet after a funeral in a comforting setting on the beautiful River Severn. An open river is a lovely place for a group to gather for the ceremony.|
|Parking||The Sabrina boat is located a 5 minute walk from the Frankwell long stay car park, as well as being a 2 minute walk from the Bridge Street short stay car park (up to 3 hours). Passengers can be dropped off outside the pontoon on Victoria avenue, but unfortunately this is drop off only – however there is sometimes disabled parking available further up Victoria Avenue – but this is limited, especially on busy days.|
