About Sweeneys Cruises, Balloch

The Sweeney's Cruises fleet is, quite simply, the most luxurious collection of vessels currently operating in Scotland.

Combining sleek design with elegant interiors, there's no more stylish or comfortable way to enjoy all that Loch Lomond has to offer. Each boat can also be adapted to suit a wide range of occasions, events and guest numbers.

Silver Dolphin
The Silver Dolphin is quite simply the most luxurious passenger boat operating in Scotland.

The newest addition to the Sweeney's Cruises fleet the Silver Dolphin was formerly a firm favourite on the River Thames where she was chartered by the likes of Sir Michael Caine, Sir Elton John, Alan Rickman and even the Prince of Wales.

Warm teak panelling, thick-pile carpeting, nautical brass fittings give the Silver Dolphin the air of a bespoke private members club. The dining area on the lower deck offers panoramic views of the loch and seating for up to seventy guests.

The upper deck with its stunning teak dance floor, retractable sun roof, bar and entrance to the forward viewing deck completes the perfect party venue.

Silver Marlin
The Silver Marlin has become an icon of Loch Lomond since her journey from the Thames in 1992.

It was aboard the Silver Marlin that the late Donald Dewar (Scotland's first First Minister) announced that Loch Lomond & the Trossachs was to be crowned Scotland's first ever National Park, giving the boat itself a place in the loch's history.

The Astina, with her open top deck and spacious lower, is the perfect sight-seeing vessel.

The German built ship originally carried sightseers along the Rhine and latterly cruised on the canals of Antwerp before joining the Sweeney's Cruises fleet in 2004 where she took up the title of the largest capacity passenger boat operating on Loch Lomond.

The Astina offers the perfect platform in which to enjoy the wonderous scenery Loch Lomond has to offer.

Lomond Duchess
Having joined the Sweeney’s Cruises fleet in 2002, the much loved Lomond Duchess is a now familiar sight on the loch.
