Cardiff Yacht Company
Sail Yacht Experiences on the Bristol Channel from Cardiff
Cardiff Yacht Company Limited provides a variety of sail yacht experiences on the Bristol Channel aboard X Beat II, a Beneteau First 40.7. It is based at Cardiff Marina in the Cardiff International Sports Village which enjoys good road and rail links. The maximum number of guests we can accommodate on board is 10, but 8 guests offers a more comfortable experience, and the yacht can accommodate up to 6 people overnight in the three private double cabins.
Our services start with Corporate Team Building Days. Your team will find the yacht environment a challenging and fun way to develop relationships and improve communication skills. In collaboration with Improov Consulting we run an independently facilitated leadership day, which covers management teams from SMEs right up to blue chip company senior executives.
If it’s time to celebrate a birthday (children are welcome), wedding anniversary, hen party or stag do, then we can provide a unique bespoke experience package to suit you. Choose to sit back and relax whilst we do the sailing, or take part and ‘learn the ropes’. Let us know your requirements and we can offer you a tailor-made experience to suit your needs and budget.
Skippered Charter – the yacht can be reserved for your friends and family for a day, weekend, Monday-to-Friday, or a week. We can provide bespoke packages which include dinner ashore and overnight accommodation on board for up to 6 guests.
We have day sails out from Cardiff or further afield to Swansea or Bristol. We also have extended cruises to Cardigan Bay in August. And if you’re looking for the ultimate challenge you can join us racing at regattas in Cork or Pembrokeshire. For Taster sailing experiences on the Bristol Channel we are recommending TrySailCardiff.co.uk.
Yacht Skills Development is delivered by affordable (pay as you go) and unrestricted timed opportunities over day, half-day or evening sessions. We can cater for all ability ranges right up to preparation for RYA Yachtmaster Examinations. We pride ourselves on being able to provide the training YOU want and need not be constrained by syllabus requirements should you wish.
Swansea Watersports supported by Cardiff Yacht Company offer the RYA Sail Cruising Programme up to RYA Yachtmaster Offshore. The practical courses will take place aboard X Beat II from Swansea or Cardiff Marina.
With the increased online availability of RYA theory courses for Day Skipper and Yachtmaster, the opportunity for face-to-face tuition has been restricted. However, we are able to offer good value interactive one-to-one tuition – either ‘live’ or online via Skype or Facetime – at flexible times to suit your needs.
Finally, we are also able to help with Yacht Delivery at a flat-rate daily fee. And if you are thinking of buying a vessel, we can provide an independent appraisal and also help you to raise your skill levels to give you the confidence to own your own boat.
