Charter a Sailing Yacht

A trip to St Mawes wouldn’t be complete without a day aboard a yacht!

“Eve” is a classic sailing yacht based here in St Mawes. She is built in the tradition of a pilot cutter – safe, strong and very beautiful. Eve is large enough to accommodate 6 people in comfort and carry enough resources to sail independently of marinas, yet small enough to sail up into quiet creeks. It’s a hand’s on adventure, all the crew are kept busy and yet suitable for beginners. A great selection of 1 – 4 day voyages of exploration along the Cornish coast are available. It’s a great way to escape 21st Century life ashore.

“Celtic Spirit” is a wonderful 25 ft yacht that belongs to our friend and neighbour Gawain Bysmouth. He has a wealth of knowledge and as well as being an experienced skipper, Gawain is also an instructor who can either help you learn the ropes or skipper the boat while you sit back and enjoy the scenery.

Enjoy a day of sailing aboard the 47 ft ketch “Olympus”. It offers couples or groups of up to 10 a relaxing day sailing experience along the Cornish coast with lunch and cream teas on board.
