A custom-fit charter vessel, Cherokee has been designed to ensure her guests are comfy and entertained.

With four private guest cabins, comfortable bunks and two bathrooms at either end of the boat, she can easily cater for solo travellers, adventurous couples or groups of friends or family. Clever storage offers plenty of locker space for guests in each cabin. With the boiler running off the cooling water of the generator, there is plenty of hot water for washing and showering!

Below decks, she offers a comfy & spacious saloon perfect for eating, playing cards or simply reading a book. You’ll find beautiful panelled mahogany interiors, giving the ship that classic feel. A well-equipped galley opposite the saloon provides a perfect social space, ready to bring you delicious food after an exhilarating day of sailing. Eat under the stars if the weather allows in the spacious cockpit, offering comfortable couches and a good-sized table. If the weather takes a turn, the crew will put up the cockpit tent, offering you shelter and warmth in the fresh air.


Besides the skipper, there is a ‘bosun’ who also does the cooking. The bosun will be preparing dinner as you arrive and after a sumptuous breakfast on your first morning aboard Cherokee, you can be guaranteed a relaxed start to your sailing holiday. Cherokee can easily be sailed solo by its crew so if you want to put your feet up, enjoy the wind in your hair and admire the view; you are on the right boat. Having said that, Cherokee is also the perfect boat for guests to learn the ropes, and the crew are more than happy for guests to get involved as much as they’d like. Experienced sailors are welcomed to sail with Cherokee, the skipper will pass you the helm and with the wind in her sails, it’s a great opportunity to sail a bigger yacht!

Jouke and his crew try to use the engine as little as possible, sailing into port as much as they can. Cherokee only clocks up about 180 motoring hours every year, which is pretty impressive. Due to this, as with most of our vessels, the days of your holiday are subject to the weather, using the tide as your clock. Guests aren’t presented with a tight schedule or itinerary for this reason, and it makes the trip much more adventurous and flexible.

Sailing suits can be rented for only £35, and life jackets are provided for everyone for the duration of the holiday.
