Sailing holidays on classic yachts:

CaribbeanMediterraneanAtlantic Ocean

Experience the Freedom of the Sea

The life on board of a sailing yacht follows its own rules. Amidst the expanse and the constantly changing scenery of the sea, along idyllic coastlines, which unfold their special magic from the water, a special sailing holiday awaits you. Far away from everyday life…

Sailing yacht cruises are our ‘regular’ sailing cruises – which are a unique blend of real sailing, about four to six hours daily, stops for swimming, water sports, time to go to the beach, explore towns, for jungle treks, local cuisine, a cave tour by dinghy, snorkelling, an island tour…


offers authentic, individual sailing cruises on classic-style built superyachts.

During our sailing trips, unlike regular cruises, we spontaneously turn on to wind and weather and do not follow a rigidly pre-planned route. Often we do not know at noon, in which bay we will anchor in the evening. So we sail in the fine wind under the magnificent, starry sky into the night. If the wind is not favourable, we stay in a bay for swimming and snorkelling. At night we usually lie quietly at anchor. In the morning, you can swim directly from the sailing ship. If possible, we will dock once per sailing trip in picturesque little towns on the quay. Our crew will also bring you ashore by dinghy. The often spontaneously organized excursions ashore are possible several times a week as well as water sports around the boat (swimming, snorkelling, water skiing and so on).

The loving service of our crew, the comfortable, air-conditioned cabins with private bathroom and last but not least, the delicious food provide for a holiday, enjoyment and relaxation starting on the first day.

Pure sailing holidays. Much more than sailing…

Passage through Antiquity aboard the MS Serenissima with Dr David Price-Williams as lecturer. From November 21 to December 6 2021.

Come with us to some of the greatest historic cities and ancient sites as we make our way from Cyprus, through the Suez Canal to Amman aboard the MS Serenissima. David Price-Williams has a first degree from the University of Wales in Ancient Near Eastern languages with a subsidiary in Attic and Koine Greek. His postgraduate work and his doctorate, from the University of London, is in Near Eastern archaeology. His first overseas archaeological field work in the eastern Mediterranean was in 1969 as a field surveyor at the classical site of Knidos in Turkey. He then worked for the Smithsonian Institution as an archaeological field surveyor on excavations in the Near East before directing his own field research in the same area through the early 1970s.

Here is a passage through antiquity, an incomparable journey with a wealth of sites on offer including biblical landmarks, Crusader castles, Egyptian temples and tombs as well as the magnificent Nabatean city of Petra. We have planned the journey for November when temperatures will be pleasant for exploring and with the aid of our knowledgeable local guides and excellent Guest Speaker, we will learn of some fascinating civilisations.

Africa, Atlantic Archipelagos, € 7.950 p.p. for this April cruise!

Join us aboard the MS Hebridean Sky for this unique island hopping itinerary visiting the diverse islands of the Atlantic with their mountainous landscapes, intriguing topography, lunar like landscapes, verdant pine forests and stunning national parks. Sailing from Dakar, we leave the bustle of this fascinating Senegalese capital behind and head to the remote and intriguing group of islands that lie off the coast, the Cape Verde archipelago. Through the ages these islands have been used by mariners as a staging post and there is no better way to explore their dramatic beauty and cultural vibrancy than by small ship. Each island is a little world of its own with a distinct culture and atmosphere; some are arid and flat with extraordinary beaches and sand dunes whilst others by contrast are more mountainous and lusher.

During this 15-day cruise (14 to 28 April 2021) you can fully explore the dramatic beauty and cultural vibrancy of these amazingly varied groups of islands, each one having a distinct culture and landscape, and the small ship MS Hebridean Sky is the ideal way to make the most of the region. Whether your interests lie in botany, geology or walking.
