Bookings for 2021

It looks like 2021 is going to be the 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 2021 charter bookings now 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 2021.

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

New for 2021 !!!

We have now put a GPS enabled Samsung tablet on every yacht – along with suitable USB ports to charge it up. Each tablet contains the virtual handover of the yacht so if you forget something, like where is the water tank filler – you can see the video again.

The major benefit though is that every tablet is equipped with the Navionics navigational software. This is so easy to use and the charts are updated before every charter! This provides immensely detailed charts of the whole of Scotland and even further away. It also provides live tidal stream direction and strength as well as heading and speed etc. 

You can also take it to the pub for a spot of route planning! (It does not require an internet connection). Check out the auto route planning – it feels very close to witchcraft !!!

You can have a look at the programme here.

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.
