Starlight Ferries


Welcome to the new early and late foot passenger ferry service between Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) and Lymington which ran as a pilot service in the Summer of 2016.

Our final scheduled sailing is Friday 12th August 2016 in the evening.


Our Morning Star service was designed to let you catch the early train to London from Yarmouth, or use the Evening Star if you're on the last train home. Our Friday night service also let you enjoy an evening out, without worrying that you've missed the last Wightlink ferry home.

See BOARDING for how to find us and more information about facilities at Yarmouth and Lymington. Payment was by CASH or CARD when you board.

To guarantee your crossing we recommended using the BOOKING form; or you could book by phone.

Our regular passengers could SIGN-UP to create a LOGIN so booking was faster.

Feeling lucky? you could just turn up at the time of sailing and board if there was space; but it was far better to reserve a place by BOOKING before-hand.

If you were part of our successful 'Rewards Based' CROWDFUNDING you would have received individual LOGIN details. These could be used to save time when booking and utilise credit, so crowdfunders don't have to pay onboard.

For more information about the boat, see SAILING.

We still offer a special EVENING charter service, by arrangement. Please use our CONTACT page to find out more.

Our vessel the Mersey Rose is supplied and crewed by the experienced team at Needles Pleasure Cruises.
