Description

Ever wanted to experience the magic of sailing? This is the experience for you!
Welcome on-board our luxury yacht for a memorable experience.

Upon arrival you will meet your RYA Yachtmaster on-board who will show you the ropes of your 40 foot sailing yacht over a cup of tea or coffee before departing the harbour. Once everyone is comfortable and ready, it is time to hit the water.

As you set sail you will immediately pass under the awe inspiring Forth Rail Bridge. Built in the 1890s this Victorian marvel of engineering is considered one of the engineering wonders of the world. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views from the luxury of the boat. If you fancy a more “hands-on” experience, the skipper will let you take the helm and learn the “ropes” as you sail down the Forth. Either way, this is an unforgettable experience that will leave you wishing you had your very own boat!

Ideal for individuals or couples looking for an introduction to sailing or interesting experience on-board a luxury sailing yacht.
