Yachts Interior Views
We have five matched yachts for you to enjoy your RYA Course Sailing on. The high performance twin helm 2016 Jeanneau 389 represents the latest in yacht innovation by industry leading Jeanneau. These boats point higher than anything we’ve sailed and the light airs performance is incredible. Equally as important is the spacious cockpit and interior, essential for training. All our vessels are equipped with the latest in technology, Broadband Radar, GPS, chart plotter and wind instruments, AIS technology and DSC VHF. If you’re not technically minded, most of this equipment surpasses the minimum requirements of a training vessel and makes your time with us a safe and informative experience.
The Interior gives three equally presented double cabins along with two berths in the saloon cabin. One head onboard gives a greater balance of equal berth space for all participants. Each cabin has European two pin plug socket along with USB charging point. The Galley has a gas oven and hob along with deep and efficient top loading fridge with a little freezer section too. The main saloon offers ample space for everyone to sit around together and plan their sailing adventures for the day.
What is the sleeping arrangement?
The Jeanneau 389's are nine berth yachts, this means they have beds for nine people to stay onboard overnight. We don't run courses to those numbers and the maximum number of people we would allocate onboard including the skipper is six people, often it's five. So where will you sleep? Each yacht has three double berth cabins (one forward and two aft). The saloon table drops down and creates a large double size berth and there is a separate single side berth too in the saloon area.
We chose this particular model of yacht to replace our entire fleet back in 2016 due to the equal berth sizing, the fact that all berths are at least 2 meters long, and the below decks head clearance is very good too thought.
For short courses you can choose to guarantee a private double berth cabin for an extra fee, no problem at all. Or you can take the luck of the draw upon arrival with your course colleagues and see where you are allocated. Really you will be so tired after an exhilarating day on the water, and an evening of study or watching the world go by in the chosen marina, by the time you go to sleep it really is to sleep. This is not like hanging out in a hotel room, it's a place to get your head down until tomorrow's adventures call you to the open seas again.
For charters the your skipper / instructor will take a private double cabin, so do allow for this in your charter group, remember they are working and need to take rest so that they are ready to imparting all their knowledge to you throughout the week.
For long term Fast Track candidates, you will as a crew take an equal turn of each berth and cabin type, everybody will at some stage have a private double berth cabin to themselves, and equally everybody will take the saloon side berth and convertible saloon double berth too. If you are not keen on sharing space and want your own private course we do run a VIP Yachtmaster event at a 1:1 ratio - ask for details if this is of interest to you.
