Exclusive use Yacht Chartering for Special Occasions

For a truly personal and exclusive experience, why not charter one or more of our vessels and let us create a bespoke event especially for your family event such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation or celebration? Whether you’re looking to organise an intimate occasion or a grander affair, we can create a package to cater for anything from 10 to 100 guests.

After a quick safety briefing you and your guests will set sail from the historic Ipswich Waterfront, bound for gentle adventure on the river. As you sail down the River Orwell you’ll pass a shoreline with a rich history, soaking up an area of outstanding natural beauty. Whether you are an experienced sailor yourself, or have never set foot on a yacht, we’re confident that you’ll find sailing an unforgettable experience.

You may also want to get involved with crewing the sailing yacht boat or you can choose simply to sit back, relax and enjoy a day on the ocean wave indulging in fine food and good company. Our crew are excellent hosts and are experienced in delivering sailing experiences that are comfortable and uniquely luxurious.

Conveniently based in Ipswich Suffolk our sailing yachts cater for every requirement and budget. We can set sail from Ipswich or alternatively offer the option to pre-position the vessels to start in a number of locations around the East Coast such as Harwich, Woodbridge, Yarmouth, Dover or Ramsgate or even St Katherine’s Dock London. Further afield why not try our favourite overnight continental destination of Nieuwport Belgium just a short distance from historic Bruges.

Prices start at £95pp (based on 10).  Call us for a chat on 01394 421209 or use our contact form – we have great ideas and happy to talk through your personal requirements.
