Good news for those who like to charter yachts early in the sailing season. Following on from her recent routine maintenance schedule, our Jeanneau 409 (Bewitched) is due to return to the water on Wednesday 17th February.
For those choosing to charter yachts from us in Devon, you know you will be in safe hands after her recent yearly overhaul. Queen Anne’s Battery (QAB) hosted her during her maintenance period (http://www.mdlmarinas.co.uk/mdl-queen-annes-battery)
And just in case you were wondering how Nick and his team did it with the recent gales and seemingly non-stop rain, believe it or not, there were a few dry spells – cold, but nevertheless, dry!
Our Jeanneau 36i, Spellbound, follows her big sister into the water with her re-launch on Wednesday 9th March. Her overhaul included: sail repairs, rig check, new spray hood, polishing and a coat of wax. Maintenance for this charter yacht was carried out at Dartside Quay in Galmpton Creek (http://www.mdlmarinas.co.uk/mdl-dartside-quay)
Both of our yachts also have brand new Almanacs on board and the life rafts have received their annual service.
If you have never thought to charter yachts in Devon before, it is worth noting that many of our past customers have commented on the fact that sailing along the south west coasts makes a refreshing change from their usual sailing ground. The coastline is particularly beautiful with many areas of outstanding natural beauty. Also, when you charter yachts from Plymouth, most destinations (see http://www.devonsailingexperiences.co.uk/devon-sailing/ ) are sailable within a day, even in more challenging conditions: it is always good to know that when sailing during the colder off-season, there is likely to be a good, local pub with a warm welcome and open fire on the go.
Both of our charter yachts (which have onboard heating – ideal if you like to charter yachts during the off-season) are available for bare boat hire. You can check out our prices, which we believe are very competitive, on http://www.devonsailingexperiences.co.uk/bare-boat-charter/
