Originally built to transport cargo along the East Coast and to the continent, Kitty was a working barge until 1938, predominantly used to carry grain including barley, malt and cattle feed. During the two World Wars she was temporarily withdrawn from trading.

By the late 1950ís the modern motor coasters were driving sailing barges out of trade, and many barges were stripped of their masts and sails and used as a timber lighters or left to rot. Kitty was fortunate and was de-rigged and used as a timber lighter until 1964 when she was bought and re-rigged for charter work.

Kitty has been sailed and operated in the Solent from the late Seventies and was not fitted with an engine until the early Eighties. She remains fully capable of sailing with her unique and authentic spars and sails now used solely for passenger charters from Port Solent.
