She has hydraulic headsails and an electric mainsheet winch. She has two helming positions, one on deck in the cockpit and one in the spacious coach house allowing you to steer the boat staying cosy and dry if it is cold and wet on deck.

Displacing 33 tonnes she is a solid boat. She is ‘coded’ to Category Zero meaning her structure, the safety equipment on board and the experience and qualifications of the skipper and mate meet the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) international standards to sail anywhere in the world.

She has heating, air conditioning, hot water, a water maker.

From the cockpit you come down into a spacious and sociable coach house with a raised saloon area offering panoramic views, leather seating and a dining table. To starbaord there is an indoor helming position (lovely when chilly outside!) and a navigation area.

Aft of this area you step down into two luxury en-suite cabins, one each side of the boat. Plenty of storage is offered and a wardrobe. The en-suite has a power shower with seating, heated towel rail and electric flush heads. The cabins also have heating, aircon and black out blinds.

Forward of the coach house saloon, you go down a level to a well designed galley on the port side and a snug seating area to starboard. Beyond that is mainly crew accomodation consisting of another heads, another double cabin and two bunk beds, and a work shop right up in the forepeak.

Full training will be given but it would be useful if you have done some sailing before. You will need to be healthy and reasonably fit.

You should get some exciting sailing in set against a backdrop of stunnign scenery.

The trip will not be as cold as you might expect. The weather in Scotland can be fickle but crystal clear and sunny days are not uncommon.

It may be chilly at night but you could well be in shorts and t-shirt during the day.
