Let us show you the beauty of Martha's Vineyard from the water. Explore the lovely harbors of the nearby Elizabeth Islands and Cape Cod coastline. We offer instruction, hands on sailing, private catered parties, or just the chance to relax, sit back and enjoy the wind and waves.
Our beautiful 41' Formosa Ketch was built in 1977 in Taiwan, and is a comfortable cruiser that has sailed around the world, including both US coasts. She is actually over 52' from bowsprit to davits, with a very wide beam of almost 13', a spacious cockpit and raised wooden cabin tops, which are very comfortable for sitting or lounging on.
All charters include bottled water, ice, fresh chilled fruit (organic when available), gourmet cheeses, dried meats and a fresh French baguette. Please note that safety is always our main priority, so if it is blowing 18 knots or above, we may not offer the hors d'oeuvres.
We also offer one way sails, which are very popular. Sails of 3 hours or longer provide the opportunity to sail for a time and if you like, anchor and enjoy a swim. 4 hours allows enough time for a swim and/or a meal on board. Instead of leaving from and returning to the same harbor, consider a destination sail, where you step aboard in one harbor, sail all along the coastline, gaining a new appreciation for the beauty of the land as seen from the ocean, and step off your private yacht in a different port, ready for luncheon or dinner reservations.
To return to your lodgings, there are many options - leave a car ahead of time in the destination harbor, use the excellent public bus system or hire a taxi. Popular options are sailing between Vineyard Haven and Edgartown (approximately 2.5 - 3 hours), Vineyard Haven and Menemsha (about 4 hours), or Vineyard Haven to Woods Hole (about 2.5 hours). We are also happy to take you wherever else you might like to go!
Many of our guests love the destination cruise, as they have the opportunity to enjoy viewing more of the coast from one harbor to another. Please contact us to discuss the endless options for customizing your sailing experience.
