Isabella is a larger vessel with an aft and foredeck where you can let the wind blow through your hair, take photographs or just enjoy the views. Internally Isabella has a cosy feel with free standing furniture you can arrange to best suit your private hire needs, boasting a large dance area, an amazing bar and party lighting to suit.
