Sail-World.com : Bloodhound - a right Royal charter opportunity

Bloodhound - a right Royal charter opportunity

'Bloodhound at her racing best'    .

Want a unique sailing adventure but can't think of anything original? With royal weddings in the spotlight, what better than chartering a piece of British history with a VERY royal flavour? Bloodhound, the 63ft fully restored classic 1930s yacht which once belonged to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, is available this summer for charter in Scotland.

Bloodhound now belongs to the charitable trust that also owns and manages the five-star visitor attraction, The Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh. She is normally on view to visitors throughout the year as the centrepiece of a new Royal Sailing Exhibition, so being able to sail her is a rare privilege.

Imagine sailing around Scotland’s beautiful Western Isles on her. This once in a lifetime opportunity is now a reality as the legendary Bloodhound is available for charter out of Oban, from the Oban Marina, between 11th July and 24th August.

She will be available for day charter for groups or individuals who wish to step back in time aboard this icon of British sailing, perfect for sailing enthusiasts, private celebrations, company incentives or team building.

Now available for charter this summer, with a unique crew -  .. .  
Collect up to eight friends and you will be able to enjoy sailing through the stunning scenery of Scotland’s West Coast, as well as the hospitality of the Skipper and crew who are all former HMY Britannia ‘Royal Yachtsmen’.

Guests can choose to sit back and relax while on board, or help the Ocean Master qualified Skipper and crew ‘man the ropes’.

Bob Downie, Chief Executive of The Royal Yacht Britannia is pleased to be bringing Bloodhound back to the West Coast of Scotland and to Oban Marina: 'We are delighted to be taking Bloodhound back to the waters on which she once sailed with the Royal Family. She is such an important part of British sailing history, and this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to step back in time.'

Bloodhound can be chartered for an all inclusive cost of from £1,000($1650) per day - with eight people that's just little more than $200 per person...

For further details on chartering Bloodhound please contact the Events team at The Royal Yacht Britannia by emailing events@tryb.co.uk
