Sailaway St. Anthony Ltd is a long established boat yard on Gillan Creek at the entrance of the Helford River. We operate a large hire fleet available for short term hire from St. Anthony and weekly hire from all points around the Helford River. In high season we also run short-term hire out of Helford Village from the pontoons at Helford Point, in addition to the weekly hire there which is available throughout the entire season. Our team enables visitors bringing their own craft to this beautiful area to have a straightforward, relaxing time afloat. We have visitors moorings on Gillan Creek and at Helford Point, good launching facilities and large dinghy and trailer parks at St. Anthony, and an on-site car park. Sailaway has full-time skilled craftsmen to solve any problems with boats or trailers. We provide long-term seasonal moorings, winter lay-up and overhauls.

The Helford River offers endless opportunities on the water. Explore evocatively named creeks such as Frenchman’s, Polwheveral and Port Navas and small sheltered coves and beaches like Grove, Bosahan, Cow and Grebe. Closer to St. Anthony lie Flushing and Gillan and Lestowder, all within easy reach by rowing boat or kayak. Revive at Port Navas Yacht Club, The Shipwrights Arms and the Ferry Boat Inn. Falmouth Bay itself is a mecca for yachtsmen and St. Anthony provides easy access to the entire area. Sailaway hire boats range from Drascombe Longboats, Wayfarers, Lasers and Toppers to sturdy 18ft Plymouth Pilot launches and smaller outboard boats ideal for exploring the creeks and coves around the river, as well as kayaks, paddle boards and rowing dinghies.
