Life on board Maybe

Gaff ketch Maybe is perfect for those wanting an active sailing holiday onboard a classic boat.

Getting involved

With a knowledgable and permanent crew, Maybe is a great base to learn more about sailing a tall ship and guests are encouraged to get involved hoisting the sails, taking the helm and knot tying. With her traditional rig, it is certainly an all hands on deck sailing experience! On her longer Atlantic crossings, guests will work with the crew to take turns in the watch system.

Sleeping and Relaxation

Below deck, Maybe has three main areas. The furthest forward is the forepeak, where there is a 6-berth cabin and shower room and normally where most of the crew will sleep. In the midships area are the galley, generous saloon, 4 further private cabins for guests and another shower room. Furthest aft is the ‘dog house’ where 2 crew members sleep along with all the navigations and radio equipment and the engine room!

All the cabins have twin bunks with all bedding and towels provided. Each cabin also has a wash basin, plenty of storage space and a radiator to keep your cabin warm on those colder days and nights!

Maybe has a dedicated chef on board to ensure you don’t go hungry after a day on the water. A buffet style, continental breakfast is laid in the saloon each morning with hearty lunches, soups and sandwiches and home-cooked dinners using as much local produce as possible.

Maybe has a generous deck space so once the sails are set and your on course along the coast, there is plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the views. Once anchored, Maybe also has a SUP for guests to use free of charge – perfect for exploring closer ashore.
