"Cornish Belle is 51 feet long, 25 gross tons and carries 99 passengers ... Cornish Belle was built {in 1951} by Frazer of Mevagissey for Harry Johns of Falmouth as his Queen of the Fal ... In 1963 she left Falmouth and went to St. Ives where she became the Cornish Belle and ran first for Paynter and then for Wilson. She returned to the Fal in 1996 with Peter Newman of Tolverne, retaining her Cornish Belle name." In 2007 she move to join the fleet of Brixham Belle Cruises, based in Torquay and Brixham. Quotes from LinkExternal link . Here she is tied up beside the South Pier. (Update, June 2009: The Cornish Belle is now in Belfast - see J3474 : The "Cornish Belle" at Belfast)
