Explore Cornwall from the water with a sailing experience on Eda Frandsen.
Explore Cornwall and escape the crowds by climbing aboard the classic boat Eda Frandsen. Experience glorious Cornish scenery from the deck of the boat and stay overnight in hidden creeks and encourages around the south coast of Cornwall. Sailing from Falmouth there will be plenty of time to step ashore and roam the countryside or visit seaside locations such as St Mawes, The Helford, Mevagissey, Fowey and possibly as far as Plymouth or Salcombe!
These voyages are for groups of up to six or 2 households, and you don’t need to have any sailing experience to join Eda Frandsen as she sails the Cornish coast on this all-inclusive sailing holiday.
The experienced and adaptable chef is happy to cater to the needs of you and your party, whilst you learn the ropes or sit back and relax, exploring some of the most beautiful and remote locations in Cornwall. Your itinerary is entirely dependant on the weather and we can be flexible to suit your desired destinations!
Guest berths: 8 Rig: Gaff Cutter
At 60ft in length, Eda Frandsen is the perfect size for exploring the many anchorages of the Western Isles and Cornwall. Small enough to sneak in close to the coastline, yet stable enough to withstand almost any weather. She is traditional in the truest sense of the world with an original rig, combining the simplicity and beauty of a bygone era with today’s modern comforts.
Eda Frandsen is a beautiful traditional gaff cutter, built at the Grena shipyard, Denmark in 1938. Having worked for much of her life as a fishing trawler in the harsh climates of the North Sea, her hull was lovingly restored on the remote peninsula of Knoydart, Scotland in the 1990’s.
Guests enjoy a unique blend of grace, character and seaworthiness and whether a beginner or seasoned seafarer, we offer voyages that are suitable for all ages and abilities.
Down below she can accommodate 8 guests in single berths, which are centred around her large saloon and dining area. There are two toilet/shower rooms, with separate access into the forward accommodation area. She has a small but highly functioning galley, from which many a delicious dish will be served throughout your stay.
Voyages on Eda Frandsen range from short breaks in Cornwall to trips up or down the Irish sea and six or nine-night adventures exploring Scotland and the Hebrides form our home port of Mallaig. So whether it is a brief escape or a complete sense of immersion you are after, there will certainly be something for all.
New for 2021 Eda Frandsen will be offering 4 and 6-day’ boat bubble’ private charters from Falmouth throughout April and May before she heads north for a fully booked Scottish schedule.
