The Majestic Line, Argyll Coast Cruises, is a private cruise line with its headquarters in the Sandbank Marina on the Cowal Peninsula in the West of Scotland. Founded in 2004, it is named after a fictional shipping company that featured in Neil Munro's Tales of Para Handy.[1][2]

As of 2013, the line operates cruises from Oban to the Islands of the Clyde (Firth of Clyde) and the Inner Hebrides.[2]


Fleet[edit]

The company runs a fleet of three vessels, two that were converted from fishing trawlers,[2][3] the third, a purpose-built vessel, that has the look and feel of a 1930s “gentleman’s motor yacht”.[4][5]
