How to Find The Community Boat

When not sailing, the Community Boat (“Copper Jack”) is moored alongside Swansea Museum’s Historic Vessels Pontoon.

The pontoon is also home to the Lightship 91 (aka “Helwick”) and the 1954 oil-burning steam tug boat “Canning”, and can be found in Swansea Marina right in front of the Waterfront Museum in Museum Square and close to Swansea Leisure Centre (LC2).


by car:

There are a number of public car parks close to the Community Boat, the closest being the Leisure Centre (LC2) car park (FREE parking on Sundays!), with a post code of SA1 3ST.

Arriving on the M4 from outside Swansea:

  • Exit junction 42 towards A483 (Swansea)
  • Merge onto A483 (leading onto Fabrian Way)
  • Continue onto Quay Parade/A4067
  • Turn left into Leisure Centre (LC2) car park

From the LC2 car park, the Community Boat is a short (2-3 minute) walk.

by bicycle:

For safety reasons, we are unable to accommodate bicycles on board the Community Boat.

However there is a bicycle rack just 50m from the Community Boat in the Museum Square (between LC2 and the Community Boat).

by train:

Swansea is served by mainline services to London, Paddington.

There are also links with Carmarthen and West Wales and station in Mid Wales via the Heart of Wales line.
