Last minute availability aboard ‘Eloise’!

Due to a mistake by a French booking agency, our yacht ‘Eloise’ is available for immediate charter for any period of time between now and the 4th June (minimum of one week) – she MUST be back with us at 0900 on the 4th June as she is booked every week from that date onwards until September!! 

She is fully serviced and ready to sail away.

We can be flexible on price as we will be refunding any income to the booking agency who have fully paid for the charter.

Email charter@alba-sailing.co.uk to enquire.

A wedding!

It isn’t every day that someone gets married on a yacht in Dunstaffnage Marina!!

The happy couple were married on 29th April 2022 aboard their yacht ‘Reiver’s Moon’.

‘Reiver’s Moon was formerly known as ‘Goldrush’ and was in our charter fleet for many years.

Everyone at Alba Sailing wishes the happy couple all the best for a long and happy future together.

Bookings for 2022

It looks like 2022 is going to be another year of the ‘staycation’ and our message is – if you are thinking about sailing on the West coast of Scotland next year then you really need to book now to avoid disappointment.

All 2022 charter bookings include a free outboard, the tablet with Navionics has proved a huge hit with our customers this year and every boat is now equipped with this facility as well as the virtual handovers on the same tablet which will all remain in place for 2022.

If you book in 2021 for 2022 you will only be charged the 2021 price!

We look forward to hearing from our customers old and new.

Lucky catch or great skill ???

A couple who were out on our yacht True Blue last week sent us this great photo when they returned home. Was it a lucky right place – right time photo or incredible skill ??? 😉

You choose – either way its a lovely photo.

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.
