Sail in style with schooner Bonnie Lynn as she takes guests on private charter sailing holidays around the paradise islands of the Bahamas.
Bonnie Lynn was designed to be an offshore cruising vessel built to very high standards. She is incredibly comfortable and seaworthy, and her design makes her an interesting sailing experience and perfect boat to cruise the Bahamas in total comfort.
Offering guests bespoke private charter sailing in the Bahamas, Bonnie Lynn explores the Exuma island chain from Staniel Cay. Her design is a blend of traditional and modern, allowing guests to be enveloped by old world charm, while resting in the comfort of modern amenities.
Bonnie Lynn’s schooner rig is totally unique! Sharing characteristics with brigantine, topsail schooner, and staysail schooner rigs, she has been customised to be easily handled by two crew. Her owners Hannah and Erick are well-versed in sailing her solo although extra hands are always welcome if guests do want to get involved.
On deck, there is plenty of space for guests to wander about freely even while under sail. The table on deck has a removable enclosure that allows for outdoor dining in any weather. There is plenty of room to spread out and find privacy, or gather together for socialising.
Bonnie Lynn was a custom build so her space below decks is well considered. She has a generous galley and saloon leading off to two double cabins and a fore cabin that has a two single bunks (this cabin can also be turned into a double bed). She’s been traditionally built with rich teak and mahogany paneling and brass fittings creating a warm atmosphere for guests.
Although she has a traditional feel, she has been equipped with modern navigation equipment, has a sound-insulated engine room, water heater, water maker, fridge and freezer! The crew quarters sit in the stern of the ship which gives total privacy!
