Classic Sailing Vessels

Our Sailing Ships Always Create a Scene

Classic Sailing holidays feature sailing ships from a bye gone era, classic boats that have survived a century and authentic replicas that preserve the maritime legends. The Classic Sailing Fleet are all traditional rigged vessels where cream or tan sails are hoisted by blocks and tackles and human teamwork.

Each boat or tall ship is independently owned and has their own distinctive style of sailing and favourite sailing grounds. Read our opinion on what each vessel does best and see their sailing programme. They all share a common ethos of 'hands on' participation, where you are the crew.
