Windermere’s newest vessel MV Swift celebrates first anniversary

Windermere’s newest passenger vessel, MV Swift, marked her first year in service on Monday 25 October 2021.

The 300-seat high tech boat has been through lockdowns, hosted a double wedding and over 130,000 passenger journeys in her first 12 months.

Despite not sailing for four out of her first 12 months, due to national pandemic lockdowns, she has still covered over 8,500 miles and hosted school groups, corporate events, birthdays and wedding celebrations.

One of the highlights of the first year was hosting the double wedding party of sisters Francesca and Lucia Cutolo. They celebrated marrying their respective husbands Jamie Hope and Ben Maddocks with a three-hour trip onboard Swift.

MV Swift officially came into service on 25 October 2020. She is the biggest boat to be launched onto England’s longest lake in 80 years.

Her first voyage was from Lakeside at 1015am on that Sunday sailing to Bowness and then Ambleside. The first passengers on board had to adhere to social distancing rules and Swift’s first year of service continued to be affected by pandemic restrictions.
