Sailing on Royal Racing Yacht Bloodhound

Imagine sailing around Scotland's beautiful Western Isles on a classic 1930s yacht, which was once owned by Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip from 1962 to 1969.

During July and August, the fully restored, 63 foot Royal Racing Yacht Bloodhound is available for private day sailing from Oban Marina around Scotland's West Coast. This once in a lifetime experience is perfect for sailing enthusiasts, private celebrations, corporate incentives or team building.

Up to eight guests can enjoy sailing through the stunning scenery of Scotland's West Coast, as well as the hospitality of the Skipper and crew, some of whom are former HMY BRITANNIA Royal Yachtsmen, or 'Yotties' as they are affectionately known.

Routes include: The Sound of Mull, passing Duart and Torosay Castles; Ballachulish, passing the Isle of Lismore into Loch Linnhe and past Port Appin; Jura, through the Sound of Kerrera, past Easdale, the Isle of Seil, Isle of Luing and the Isle of Scarba. And guests can choose to sit back and relax while on board, or help the Ocean Master qualified Skipper and crew 'man the ropes'.

Hospitality is provided on board with pastries and bacon rolls on arrival, a buffet lunch, soup and sandwiches, all made by the Yotties, with tea and cake in the afternoon.

Dates are available to charter Bloodhound between 20 July 2015 - 16 August 2015. Please contact us to check availability.
