A truly traditional sailing experience with a friendly and professional crew.

Both above and below decks of Grayhound bears witness to the craftsmanship that characterises the entire ship.

There is a pilot house at deck level too that serves many purposes. A Chart-room for navigating, a daytime shelter when needed and the perfect place for night watch. Grayhound also provides heavy wet-weather and safety gear for all guests.

Below decks

Grayhound accommodates up to 12  guests on a day sail, 10 on a holiday voyage and 8 on a cargo run. Comfy bunks are part of the shared saloon and fore cabin with all bed linen and towels provided. With two heads and a shower for occasional use, Grayhound is a lovely traditional sailing experience but with all the mod cons thrown in too.  There is a shower on board but we use it as little as possible because we have a limited water supply. We tend to use the showers ashore in the marinas that we visit. There is plenty of seawater for bucket-showers on deck or for a nice morning swim around the ship. You will be amazed on how fresh you feel at sea!

Eat under the stars

There is a communal eating area below decks with a wide hatch so guests can star-gaze while eating delicious food. In warmer climates, guests and crew can eat alfresco up on the generous deck.

The galley is at the heart of both Grayhound itself and her owners. Designed to be an efficient and inspiring workspace for the chef making meals a highlight of the voyage. Grayhound has a great tradition of using fresh produce and of foraging, producing wholesome meals inspired by local cuisine and maritime traditions. She serves only healthy, organic, vegetarian food. For many good reasons the meals on the ship are mostly vegetarian. Everything is cooked onboard by our excellent chef using regional and organic produce wherever possible. We have a well-equipped galley where we cook healthy and tasty food.
