Our Fleet

Our fleet continues to expand! Our newest addition is a Bavaria 38, Barbarossa. This spacious yacht offers 3 double cabins, TV, DVD player, teak cockpit and side decks, 4 winches and Raymarine electronics. She is available for bareboat charter from Mayflower Marina, Plymouth.

Our Dehler 34 (Troppo Bella) is newly coded. She is our only yacht on the River Dart and is now available for bareboat charter – an ideal location for guests who wish to attend Dartmouth Regatta. We recommend accessing her from Kingswear Marina, where good value parking and a water taxi service is available.

In addition to Barbarossa and Troppo Bella, we continue to operate the following yachts: Jeanneau 409 (Bewitched), Jeanneau 36i (Spellbound), and Stefini rpd66 (Disco Volante – skippered charters only). All of these yachts can be chartered from King Point Marina, Plymouth. Details about each of them can be found on our website
