Enabling people to experience life on the water

Volharding operates on a not-for-profit basis from Oban. She provides a safe platform for local groups, charities, and individuals to experience the beauty of the Argyll and Bute region from the water with the goal of having a positive impact and contribution to people’s lives.

As a capable sailing barge with a rich history, she offers the opportunity for those who otherwise wouldn’t have to experience seamanship, sailing, and the abundance of natural beauty and wildlife the West Coast of Scotland has to offer. As a community-centric boat, we are also looking for volunteers to join us in offering long lasting experiences for others.

Keep in touch with Volharding's journey and sailing opportunities. Sign-up to our mailing list and we will keep in touch regarding up and coming trips, adventures and volunteer or crewing opportunities.

If you are a community organisation, charity or group that would like to understand how you can work or partner with us please fill in your details and we will get in touch shortly.
