Join Kairos in Venice for a short break on the water during the Carnival of Venice, exploring this beautiful floating city and the town of Grado.

Join Kairos in Venice, Italy and spend a few days sailing and exploring this beautiful floating city and its neighbouring seaside town of Grando.

Starting in the city of Venice is a truly spectacular way to start a wonderful cruise onboard Kairos. This ancient city is built on 100’s of small islands connected by bridges, waterways and canals. with not a car in sight, take romantic trips on the famous Gondolas, visit streets packed with museums and galleries and dine at a plethora of bars and restaurants.

This weekend is also the annual Carnival of Venice where this floating comes to life in a sea of colour and celebration. Originally dating back to 1162, the Carnival marks the start of Lent, forty days before Easter and is famous for its beautifully elaborate festival masks.

Escape the tourist hustle and bustle with the tranquillity of your own boat to explore this fabulous part of the Mediterranean. Anchor away from the tourist’s eye in the Venetian Lagoon and sail to visit the lagoon island of Grado.

The vintage beach resort of Grado is home to beaches of grey sand – considered curative and is used in spa treatments. Here you’ll find beautiful medieval squares crisscrossed with narrow streets, grand mansions and a seafront lined with beach huts and thermal baths.

With Kairos as your base, great food included and some beautiful bucket list locations; this is a holiday experience of a lifetime and one not to be missed!

Kairós

Guest berths: 16 Rig: Bermuda Schooner

Registered in Rotterdam but spending her days sailing the Med, Kairós was purpose built as a charter vessel in 2007, as a two-masted, 38m staysail schooner.

This beautiful luxurious schooner was designed by Klaus Röder who based his design on a classic yacht whilst keeping up with the modern day schooners; built for performance sailing and guest comfort. Kairós offers a total of 8 comfortable en-suite double cabins for up to 16 guests, these private cabins have either a queen size bed or single bunks and all have air-conditioning. The deckhouse has its very own small bar whilst below decks offers still more space to relax, from the saloon with its plasma TV to its very own library.

Built with luxury in mind, the outline on deck is of teak and mahogany with plenty of space to sun-bath, read a book and enjoy the views. All the sails are electronically retractable, so no need to learn the ropes here. (The crew are, however, more than happy for guests to get involved with the operating and sailing of Kairós as much as they would like!)

An admiralty ladder provides the perfect place to jump off into the warm Mediterranean waters, have a swim and climb back aboard with ease. Kairós also offers her guests the options of using her water skiing, wake-board, tube riding and snorkelling equipment!

The professional crew consists of the Skipper, first mate, mechanic, bosun, cook and 2 stewards, so you will most certainly be looked after during your time aboard Kairos.
