Falcon was built in 1894 by Simpson and Strickland in Dartmouth for Sir Edmund Lacon, the owner of the Great Yarmouth Lacon’s brewery.
Originally a pleasure boat on the Norfolk Broads, Falcon was requisitioned by the Royal Navy during World War One and then worked as a hire vessel at Cobholm before moving to Thrower’s boatyard in Wroxham. During World War Two, she towed naval boats to Great Yarmouth.
In 1997 Falcon was donated to the Museum where the volunteers restored both her and her steam engine back to service. Usually, she will take Museum visitors for unique river trips on Thursdays. Should the weather be inclement, we may run Marsh Harrier instead.
We welcomed Marsh Harrier to our fleet in August 2019. Marsh Harrier is an Edwardian style launch, designed by Broads boat designer, Andrew Wolstenholme and built by the International Boat Building Training College at Oulton Broad.
She has a roof and so is weather proof! We apologise that due to circumstances beyond our control, the wheelchair lift is unavailable at present.
Marsh Harrier is an electric boat and her batteries are charged by electricity produced by the Museum’s own solar panels. She will operate on Sundays and on Tuesdays.
