Cruising holidays can be totally tailored to your requirements to explore beautiful coastal waters and picturesque ports. The holiday can be as active and instructive as you like; everyone taking part in sailing or lying back and letting the professional crew take care of you. It will be predominantly day sailing with some time to explore on shore and most nights spent in harbour or at anchor.
Northern Child is a safe and comfortable yacht ideal for cruising. She has an array of equipment onboard to make your holiday safe and enjoyable. She is fully coded by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) to the highest class for private charter yachts. In addition, she has a generator and water-maker, making her self-sufficient and capable of cruising to the most beautiful and remote parts of the Caribbean and Mediterranean. We can either tailor cruising holidays to your requirements or recommend islands, beaches, anchorages and restaurants for you if you are not familiar with the cruising grounds.
If you would like a winter break there are great sailing conditions in the Caribbean. A constant warm wind on the beam makes the sailing between the islands very exciting. Cruising in the Caribbean gives you the perfect opportunity to explore exotic islands, deserted shores and beaches and to see places which are difficult to access other than by yacht.
There are three main charter cruising areas; the Grenadines between St. Vincent and Grenada, the Leeward Islands from Antigua to St. Martin and the Virgin Islands.
If you want a little more to keep you busy while you holiday aboard, we have snorkeling equipment and a kayak, together with an LCD TV and DVD collection to cater for kids whether big or small. New this year our 3.2m RIB with 18HP outboard will get you to shore or a snorkelling site safely and quickly.
Northern Child will be spending a little more time in the Mediterranean next year, and will be available for charter around Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. If you have never explored the depth of beauty and culture on these islands then cruising on Northern Child is a perfect way of doing so.
There are many lovely anchorages around these islands allowing for some gorgeous swimming and snorkelling. These bays are also frequented by pods of dolphins who also enjoy playing in the isolation.
Many places of historical interest can be accessed by yacht around these islands. Sicily especially is home to many places of interest such as Syracuse; the home town of Archimedes.
