This website previously belonged to Nauticat UK, a company which was working under the Nauticat Company which manufactures traditional motorsailors and pilothouse sailing yachts. The company has for years been renowned as one of the best yacht producing companies in the world.
For long, I have loved private yacht adventures. This is probably because they enable a tourist to customize the whole travelling adventure since they crew on board are usually flexible and try as much as they can to ensure that you are satisfied. This special treat is vital in giving you the freedom and value that you’d love to benefit when taking the tour, than it would be in a crowded ship where people have differing opinions about where they intend to visit and the much time that they intend to stay there. There is nothing as special as having the freedom to choose and make decisions.
Yacht expedition is some of the most enjoyable water tours that you can ever make. The fact that most yacht cruise are limited to a given set of people, give you the freedom to explore some destinations which are never much visited yet they have the best landscapes for adventure and sightseeing.
This is one major reason which makes me love yachts. Of course the tours may be expensive, but compared to the experience, the adventure is always worthy you money. Moreover, you will find that most cruise companies usually hire guide tours who are experts in ensuring your comfort and have wide extensive knowledge of the various destinations that you plan to visit.
The cruises are also very hospitable and provide the convenience that you may desire if you want a private tour with you family or spouse. Most are fitted with modern amenities for private tour sessions such as spas, classy dining places etc, these are usually ideal for people who feel intimidated by the presence of others and love private sessions.
Even if there will be more people on board, the number will usually be small and in most cases you can easily interacts and blend easily with the others on board.
However, it is always best that you first research for the best cruise company which has great review and it’s affordable. You need to learn more about the services they are providing and how accommodating they can be in case you plan to extend your stay or change the course of you sail. You will never regret your decision.
The domain was however abandoned and it was gifted to me recently by a friend. I have ever been interested in sailing and marine tour and therefore I decided to bring the website back into life. However, since I’m neither in any business connected in manufacturing or selling traditional motorsailors or pilothouse sailing yachts, nor in the business of selling yacht tour packages, I decided to talks about various experiences of avid water travelers, the safety involved in sailing and other topics which pertains water travel. There are various posts that I have already published and they can be accessed by clicking through various topics below.
Family Days out Sailing
My parents have always been enthusiastic in water adventures and since I was a child we always went adventuring from time to time whenever there was free time. While growing up, we used to have a small powerboat which we would often use for our short tours around San Diego coast. It was always fun and wonderful family moments outdoors. My dad used to steer most of the time, but there were other time when my mum also used to be the one in charge.
There are times when we would just hang out for fun and other time when we would hold family meeting and party in the powerboat.
There was a lot that I learned from the various journey, and therefore by the time when I went for my powerboat lessons, I didn’t take long before I passed the tests and I was awarded my license. I was just 18 by then. It was after the test that I was in charge of steering when we went out and my parent felt so much proud of me for exhibiting good steering skills and other vital judgments while powering the boat.
However things changed much while I was in college. During this time, my father was involved in a road accident and succumbed to the injuries. Things got more worse two years later when my mother was diagnosed of breast cancer. She had to take early retirement as she underwent her various treatment, chemotherapy and radiation sessions.
It wasn’t easy for us as a family given that my sisters and I had to be there for our mother during these challenging times. However, we tried our best to ensure that she was strong. We always felt like we were losing her and these thoughts always made me feel quite weak. I would find time during the weekends and go home just to be with her before resuming studies on Mondays.
Everything changed in our family. We could no longer go for sailing trips as we used to, and I could feel this gap which always helped reunite our family together. During one visit when mum had been hospitalized, I promised her that once she recovers, I would take hire one of the best yacht and take her for a sailing expedition. Of course I was trying to encourage her not to give up on the fight and make her reminisce the happy family moments that we always had whenever we sailed.
Cruising in Santorini
Thankfully, she recovered after battling with the cancer for two and half years. She survived it, though she had to undergo mastectomy on both of her breast. She had lost so much weight during that period and after the recovery, we had to maintain her special diet plan so that she could replenish her body. It took about another half an year before she was fully recovered and fit as she was before.
By this time, I had already finished college and secure a job. It was also time for me to fulfill my promise of taking her to a voyage. We took a flight to Santorini, Greece and it is here where I hired a yacht to take us around. It was indeed one of the best ways of adventuring Santorini and my mum and sisters were all glad of the trip. We spend about a week at the place and all during this time, mum marveled about the beauty and wonder of the island as we cruised each day from place to place to adventure. I was glad that the whole family was happy together, though I believe that if dad was with us, we could have been happier.
