Introducing the Association Boats & their Skippers
Skipper: Joe Pender
The Sapphire is a Kingfisher K50 passenger boat, which was built to order 5 years ago in Falmouth by Kingfisher Boats.
Joe Pender has been a member of St. Mary's Boatmen's Association for 13 years. Before purchasing the Sapphire he operated the 'Lily of Laguna' for 8 years, which was a 45ft wooden passenger launch. Joe took over the 'Lily of Laguna' from his father Guthrie Pender who was a founder member of the Association.
