Whether you are winter sailing in the Caribbean or spending the summer in the Mediterranean, PALMIRA turns heads wherever she goes. Cruising on a sailing yacht is a special experience, and the professional crew will ensure that your charter party of eight have the time of their lives.

Each morning you wake in the comfort of your light-filled suite – it is tempting to stay in bed, but the day has much in store and the scent of fresh pastries fills the air. Your party gathers at the al fresco dining table under the bimini for breakfast on deck, with the anchorage spreading around you.

PALMIRA is just as fun with the sails stowed and her drop-down swimming platform in place astern. A sailing dingy offers the children a chance to learn for themselves, and there are the inflatable towables for high octane rides. You may like to cut a dash on the waterskis or paddle a kayak into a secluded cove.

The tender is ready to take you ashore to explore the sights and find the shops. From the famous French Riviera to the glamourous Amalfi Coast you will want to step into the buzz of the coastal towns. When in the Caribbean, laid back island life beckons and the pace slows to barefoot chic.

Aboard PALMIRA you are sailing on a world class regatta contestant, raced by the yachting fraternity’s elite. So when regatta day arrives and you join the jostle of the starting line, your heart will be racing too – you are about to find out what a yacht of this calibre can do. With PALMIRA’s well laid out decks and professional crew, you are in safe hands for an exhilarating race - the only question is, will you all fit on that podium?

By the time the day is done, and maybe won, you will be back on board sipping a well-earned drink. Invite your new friends from the other regatta yachts to join you to celebrate, and dine on fresh seafood prepared by your on-board chef.

As the sun dips below the horizon, the main saloon beckons with soft sofas and panoramic views through the huge windows. Tales of the day are already becoming legend, and you promise yourselves to do it all again tomorrow.
