Sailing in the Ionian Sea
Sailing in the Ionian Sea
Our boat was built in Istanbul 1993
She was created with traditional methods by wooden boat builders who come from the area of the
Black Sea, from ship building towns with a seafaring history that goes back to the Ottoman Empire.
It is this craft that has been passed down from father to son, generation to generation.
She was built with great strength, the bones of the boat created from solid oak and Baltic pine,
the other woods used in the finish being mahogany and teak.
She was designed with comfort in mind and this shows in the space on board, both inside and out.
You can see how much more space and comfort there is when walking around the boat.
There is no need to bend and squeeze around rigging or any other areas on board.
All our guests find the boat to be completely comfortable and an ease to get around.
We have a teak staircase down one side of the boat to offer ease in and out of the sea when swimming.
A fresh water shower tap is located at the top of the stairs to wash the salt from your skin before
entering back on board.
12 individual sun beds in a designated area at the front for those who choose to relax and enjoy the sun.
There are also several covered areas for anyone who would like their own sheltered space to enjoy a book
and a cool drink.
Downstairs are 6 double cabins, each with en suite shower, toilet and vanity. The beds are all at least
double size or queen. Our cabins are under the galley and don't face directly to the sun which keeps
them cool, a great advantage in the hotter months.
The dinner table is set aft of the boat and it is in a covered area. This is where we all join up together to
enjoy all our meals and talk about our day adventures.
We have a large, open kitchen on the upper deck which is not common in the standard design of a gullet.
Our customers enjoy popping in through the day to watch our chef as he prepares our next Mediterranean
feast. Anyone is welcome to join him at any time if they would love to see how some of our special dishes
We look forward to welcoming you on board.
