Information About Your Yacht Charter Experience

Our Lizzie is an extremely comfortable vessel and only sleeps up to 4 or 5 guests depending on the voyage.

 Our trip itinerary includes a variety of weekend or midweek experiences, special and historic holidays to Dunkirk or the Normandy landing beaches. All of this in comfort on a beautifully restored, historic wooden boat; a Dunkirk Little Ship who has seen over a hundred years of service.

 Our Lizzie has been refitted in a comfortable spacious classic style and boasts a host of high spec modern conveniences. With her wide decks and plenty of seating, a light and airy doghouse and a feeling of security and stability when onboard, she is unlike any other yacht.

Your voyage, your way. 

Whilst we have set various dates and trips; if you would like to change, extend or vary any particular trip we will do everything to accommodate your request. Please just call us to discuss this. It’s your experience and your holiday.

Booking Your Adventure

Bookings can be made for the whole boat or on a couple / individual basis.

Couples can book the En-suite Fore Cabin or the Saloon on this site directly.

There are two separate single cabins available for individuals or crew. We ask that single guests call us as there are different booking formation options depending on the group size and other bookings.

She is ideal for families and small group holidays offering an unrivalled experience of classic maritime charm, history and grace.

Try Your Hand At Sailing

Sailing a classic Gaff Ketch is unlike cruising on a modern yacht. Instead of winches, we use traditional block and tackle systems with more lines. Joining in is simple – one line, one job. If you’ve sailed before, you’ll appreciate the unique pleasure it brings.

No sailing background? No problem. Kick back and savor the ride or get hands-on and help with the sailing – it’s all about enjoying the experience. Just have fun!

All Our Lizzie Charters Include;

  • - Mooring fees and fuel
  • - All food and snacks, even the occasional glass of wine. (Please discuss any allergies or special dietary requirements you have in advance of your journey)
  • - Clean sheets and bedding are provided in the forward en suite for each trip.
  • - Pillows and cases are provided for all berths

We want your experience with us to be free from extra costs and for you to enjoy her warm and inviting atmosphere, so you feel right at home. We invite you to be captivated by her beauty, and our hospitality, and enjoy an amazing experience aboard Our Lizzie.

What you need to bring

Warm clothing – the breeze at sea can make the temperature feel much cooler than on land, even in the summer.

Unless you have booked the double fore cabin, please bring a sleeping bag. Pillows and pillowcases are provided.

Please note that hard suitcases are not suitable to bring on-board, soft bags that can be folded away are much more suitable.
It is far better to use a soft bag for your clothing and belongings as opposed to a suitcase.

Deck shoes or if you don’t have them, trainers or soft shoes are fine. Please do not bring shoes with soft black rubber soles.

A waterproof jacket. Great for keeping out the wind as well as any rain. If you have any sailing waterproofs and sea boots of course bring them.

Suntan lotion.

Seasickness tablets if you feel you might need them.

Washing gear and towel. Our Lizzie has two heads / showers though it is recommended you use the shore facilities wherever possible.

If you have any questions about what to bring, just call or contact us.
