Cancellation Bargain !!!

We have had a cancellation of a 2 week booking on Highland Sealord for 2 weeks in high season – 23rd June – 7th July 2018 due to a serious injury. We would like to resell these weeks so we can refund the original client and as an incentive we are offering a 10% discount on this 2 week period. This is one of our most popular boats in 2 of the most popular weeks in the year so hopefully we will be making someones day !! Please telephone 01631 565630 or email charter@alba-sailing.co.uk

Full details of the yacht are here

An unusual request ???

We completed one of our more unusual requests today! There is a prototype tidal power electricity generating platform being tested in the Falls of Lora and we were asked to make guard wires and safety lines for it to prevent visitors falling in the drink. The quote was submitted on Weds, order placed for all the swaged fittings on Thursday – parts arrived Friday (Big Thank You to the boys at Sta-Lok rigging!) – Tim and I made all the parts on Friday from our detailed measurements and on Saturday we fitted all the wires. We were VERY pleased that every wire was the right length – first time ! It looks great and we were very pleased to be able to help out the company behind the project – the whole setup will eventually be dismantled after testing and shipped out to South East Asia where it will be permanently installed. More information about this interesting project is here.

Bigger boats in High Season

Many people have been disappointed to find that all our bigger boats are already booked for high season weeks when they call to make an enquiry. For 2018 we have decided not to renew our association with a group that chartered a few boats for a few weeks in peak season which releases them for individual booking. So if we have not been able to help you in the past, now is a great time to get your first choice of boat and weeks in peak season!! Our office is staffed 7 days a week from 0900hrs to 1700hrs. Call 01631 565630 or email us.

Fantastic meals for your Holiday!

The lady who makes the meals for our training courses and skippered charters etc is now able to offer her services to bare boat charter customers as well.

For full details click here.

The meals are all home-cooked using only fresh, local, seasonal ingredients. Jennie is fanatical about quality, freshness and low environmental impact.

Jennie is a trained cookery teacher and her food is simply wonderful.

Once the meals are made they are deep frozen and around the time you arrive the food is delivered directly to us to await your arrival.

All you need to do is pop it in the oven and with virtually no work at all you can enjoy top quality food on board your yacht. Jennie provides full instructions, ingredient lists and a temperature probe. Remember it’s a holiday for the cook too! All dietary requirements can be catered for – such as Coeliacs, vegans, pescetarians etc.

Please note that Jennie requires at least 7 days notice for food orders.
