Working SailTraditional Charter sailing in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and Brittany and Boat builder since 1993
Since 1993 we have endeavoured to ensure the art and craftsmanship of building and sailing traditional wooden boats is not lost. We are dedicated to reviving the rich heritage of our maritime past through operating traditionally rigged pilot cutters and sharing our passion with as many people as possible.
Thus far we have built a fleet of eight wooden pilot cutters in memory of the Isles of Scilly, their people and the pilot boats that in times past worked from there.
We have operated Agnes, our 46ft pilot cutter, as an adventure charter boat from our home port of Falmouth since 2006; exploring Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and Brittany. In summer 2020 we are adding to our fleet with the imminent launch of Pellew, our 68ft re-creation of a Falmouth Pilot Cutter.
Sail with us
In Summer 2020, Agnes and Pellew will be exploring the Cornish coast, the Isles of Scilly and Brittany.

Our Sailing Destinations
From our home port of Falmouth we cruise some of the best sailing grounds in the UK and Brittany. Sail, explore and experience these wonderful areas from the deck of our traditional boats.
Traditional Boat Builders
Since 1993, Luke and Working Sail have built 8 traditionally rigged pilot cutters. Since 2003 Agnes has been our flagship as we have explored far and wide with guest crew onboard. Pellew is the ninth boat in the fleet and the largest to be built thus far at 68ft. A life time dedicated to ensuring that historical maritime skills are not lost.
