The new boat, a Coulam Wheelyboat V20, provided by The Wheelyboat Trust, is specially designed for disabled users. The powerboat will allow children and adults who visit Kinsale to powerboat for the very first time – offering them a brand new and inclusive experience. Although there are nine Wheelyboats already across Ireland, this is the first and only V20 model, making it one of a kind.
