Built in Italy in 1996 by the Cantreille del Pardo boat yard, Emma Claire comes from a long line of quality grand Soleil yachts. 

Her first home port was the Helford River in Cornwall, where she remained under private ownership until 2017 cruising the Atlantic, French coast and up to Ireland.

Between 2017 to 2021 she moved to Cowes and became part of the Royal Ocean Racing Club scene, sailing in many ocean events.

Chris and Bryony bought her in 2021 where Salcombe became her home port and she is now offering guests private charter sailing holidays.
