Private Charter Holidays Schedule

Modern yacht sailing in Devon, Cornwall, and the Isles of Scilly

Step onboard modern yacht Emma Claire to experience coastal sailing at its finest as you anchor in picturesque bays and explore tranquil river creeks across the South West. While on board, immerse yourself in sailing under the guidance of experienced skipper Chris or relax on deck as the world passes by. Above decks, she has a comfy cockpit and plenty of space to take in the coastal views and relax into life on the water.

Accommodates: up to four guests in two double cabins and a twin bunk cabin.

Unwind on board classic boat Escape in south Devon

Classic yacht Escape sails out of Dartmouth, the perfect location for a short break in calm, sheltered waters. Escape’s gaff rig is a traditional but straightforward set-up, making her great to learn the ropes if you’re a beginner. If you’re familiar with life on the water, then you’ll certainly appreciate the sailing lines of this Colin Archer classic! A multi-fuel stove sits in the saloon, and a cosy galley is home to a whistling red kettle that is always bubbling away, ready for tea and coffee.

Accommodates: up to four guests in two single bunks off the saloon with a double bed and toilet in the fore.

Cornish Pilot Cutter adventures with Pellew

Handcrafted in Cornwall as a recreation of the 1852 Falmouth pilot cutter Vincent, no boat could be more authentically Cornish than pilot cutter Pellew! She is one of the fastest pilot cutters of her time, offering a truly exhilarating sailing experience. Explore the coastline that Pellew calls home on a Cornish weekend adventure, or enjoy an adventurous crossing to the infamous Isles of Scilly.

Accommodates: 8 guest berths in an open-plan cabin, each in twin bunk arrangements. She has a shower room and two toilets for guest use.

Sail Scotland in comfort with Steady

Sturdy steel hull ketch Steady is true to her name and was originally built as a charter vessel. Steady’s voyages explore the islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides and St Kilda, an area of unspoilt wilderness and breathtaking beauty. Onboard Steady, most guests like to lend a hand with the sailing of this eye-catching vessel, but she caters for all abilities and ages. So if you’d rather sit back and relax, then that’s fine too!

Accommodates: eight guests in four comfortable twin cabins sharing two bathrooms. The galley and saloon area provide plenty of seating alongside the cosy multi-fuel stove.

Wildlife watching and sailing with Zuza

Expedition yacht Zuza sails the inner and outer Hebrides in Scotland, reaching locations that are not accessible by the larger boats. Her quiet approach also stands her in good stead to not scare off wildlife, making her the perfect wildlife-watching vessel. Her double hull makes her very smooth and steady on the water. She is perfect for those who want to learn more about sailing or just to sit back and enjoy the comfort of the warm and dry wheelhouse.

Accommodates: eight guests with two private double ensuite cabins, and two private twin-berth cabins as well as versatile living spaces both on and below deck.
