Unless they do a deal with Haslar Marina I do not see them making it a good business venture. Not worth paying the marina 8.00 just to have a cup of coffee or a sandwich on board the Green Ship. Different if you berth there.
I would rather go across where for the same you have a larger selection of places to dine and the ladies can do a bit of retail therapy as well.

I thought they closed down towards the end of the season.

I always like the place but it seems that whoever owns it has difficulty making a living.

Maybe they should moor outside the terratorial limit and sell duty free??
