A NEW marine training and sightseeing tour company, run by merchant and royal navy professionals, has set up on the Clyde.

Glasgow City Boats is a first of its type for the city. It aims to deliver marine courses through its training academy and will also offer bespoke tours along the Clyde for tourists, parties and corporate events allowing students and guests to have their experience tailored to their needs.

Glasgow City Boats, which is an RYA recognised training centre, can be hired out for hourly trips or day long excursions, including catering.

The company is run by soon to be wed couple, John Mackenzie and Jill McCairns; launching a business and getting married all within a couple of months!!
