Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 343
In so many ways, “Southerly Gael” is the ideal yacht on which to learn your cruising skills.
Her size allows everything aboard to be safe and manageable; not too heavy or scary. Yet she is a true “Tardis,” with comfortable accommodation below that belies her sleek profile: It is not for nothing that Berret-Racoupeau, her designers, have become almost synonymous with the largest production boatbuilder in the world.
“Southerly Gael” handles nimbly under sail or motor and is fully equipped to the exacting standards required by the MCA and the RYA. She is typical of the kind of production yacht that our students will go on to charter with their ICC qualification and her systems are all up to date. So Solaris graduates are perfectly prepared for their first experiences as skippers or crew.
In the world of yachting, the Swan name is rather like that of Aston Martin in terms of road vehicles. Hand built in Finland by Nautor, a Swan is unmistakable on the water, with serene beauty and awesome performance promised by every detail of her hull and rig.
“Lady Jomo” is a superbly maintained and equipped example of the Swan sisterhood. She can accommodate 5 guests in complete luxury and is run by her owners, Monique and Jo Parkinson, on a fully catered basis, offering a truly deluxe alternative for improving, not just your sailing, but your total experience of yacht cruising.
