”Optimist of London” is an American-designed Morgan 45 – a fin-keel cutter rigged Bermudian sloop and is easy and comfortable to sail. All lines lead aft to her large, safe centre-cockpit, which houses the range of electronic navigational equipment, including a colour chartplotter and autohelm. She has roller furling headsails, in-mast mainsail reefing, a cruising chute, an electric winch, radar, and full safety equipment. An overhead bimini gives welcome shade from the hot afternoon sun, whilst the deck boasts a large sunbathing area to top up the tan. When we are at anchor, you can cool down with a swim from the aft bathing platform or take a refreshing deck shower. The yacht’s inflatable dinghy with outboard is at your disposal to explore the coves or for trips ashore to the beautiful beaches along the coast.
Guests of all ages are welcome and we are fully insured and licenced to carry up to 10 guests onboard. We especially cater for parties ... anniversaries, birthdays, family groups and our popular hen & stag parties ... you are sure of a great time out on the water !
