Modern Yachts

Yachts that we sail on are always young, 0-7 years old, and of a good quality brands: Benetau, Sun Odyssey, Hanse, …, Bavaria, therefore classified as ‘premium class’. We are always choosing yachts by the best quality/price ratio, therefore we choose lengths of 44-52 feet. Sometimes we are not able to source 0-7 year old yachts due to the local circumstances. In such a case we will write on the trip page what is the age of the yachts rented for each trip.

Each of the yachts offers 4-5 cabins: at least three of which have a double bed and one or two cabins are with two single bunk-beds. Additionally there is a convertible sofa in the saloon but this will not be used for sleeping*. All this normally adds up to 8 people per yacht. However it might happen that on a larger yacht there will be 10 people in total. Every solo traveller shares a cabin with another solo travellers of the same sex. Cabins have small closets and cubbies for your clothes and possessions. Each yacht is equipped with at least two heads (bathrooms) where you can have a shower (hot water). They are compact, but you will get accustomed to them in no time (even in two persons 😉 ).

In the saloon you will find fully equipped galley (kitchen) – small oven, gas stove, washbasin, cutlery and crockery, and a dining table. Most likely you will choose to eat breakfast and lunch at the table outside – there are simply better views! The yachts have a refrigerator, electricity, stereo (inside and outside speakers!) with MP3/Bluetooth player and other amenities that you might expect from conventional lodging. This is not a luxurious hotel, but think of this: which hotel offers constantly changing panoramic view and freedom to take it wherever you wish?

The cockpit (steering and sitting space) outside is spacious, able to hold the whole crew while sailing or dining. There is an electronic chart plotter and GPS for your convenience in navigation and exploration of the coastlines. The bimini will keep the sun away (if need be) and the outside shower will flush away the salt from your body after a swim. If you wish, you can even use it with hot water!

Have a look at the photos below and make yourself familiar with the yacht which will be your home for at least a week! The below photos do not represent exactly the yacht we sail on, but the class of a yacht that you will sail on with Naleia. Little differences in configuration/outlooks are possible. The comfort is always the same!

*Some companies use the saloon for skipper to sleep in. Our policy is that the skipper gets a bunk bed cabin to share with another participant of the same gender. This ensures that the person with most responsibility can get a proper rest and be there to organise your experience the best way s/he can. Saloon is a “community” space always available to use. 

The Expedtion Sailboat

We have 4 double cabins, two bathrooms with showers, an outside shower at the swim platform, a saloon with fridge, cooking place and all the standard equipment on a sailboat. This is a sailboat that has seen it all. Super well equipped for many weeks offshore. Solar panels, strong batteries, water maker, satellite communications and additional sails (light wind) increase the pleasure as well as the autonomy of sailing. We sail on a sailboat Dufour Classic 43. She has circumnavigated the world. Now she is back in the Mediterranean sea. Come aboard!

Catamarans

Catamarans are very spacious sailing vessels with plenty of room. They offer very spacious cabins, most of them double. There are usually two single cabins at each bow of the hull.  The net in front is a perfect sunbathing and chilling area. It feels great to sail there and see the water passing by below you. The separate bridge is the place where all the sailing takes places, whereas in the large saloon and “terrace” in front of it all the dining and socializing takes places. As in all the other sailing vessels there is a cooking facility, fridges and freezers, bathroom with warm water shower and plenty of storage space everywhere.
