Description

This is Santa Barbara’s most exclusive private charter, aboard a classic sailing yacht.
Sailing in Santa Barbara has never looked so good.

The Yacht
Sailing in Santa Barbara has never looked so good. Cruise our iconic coast in old-world style with modern luxury aboard our Sailing Yacht — a classic Fuji 35’ Cutter. This shimmering blue beauty is a J.G. Alden designed masterpiece built in Japan in 1976 and refitted in Santa Barbara, California in 2022.

Her exquisite teak aft deck, sleek lines, and superior seaworthiness, make her perfect for a smooth sailing adventure. Down below a charming teak cabin invites guests with her wood burning fireplace and wrap around dining area. Modern appliances and clean and updated washroom give the yacht a homey feel.

Yacht has a mainsail, staysail and headsail. Her three-sheets design gives her speed, maneuverability, and seaworthiness. She was designed to be a pleasure at sea and we hope you will find sailing aboard her, just that.

A cruise along the American Riviera will be an unforgettable experience aboard the yacht as she smoothly sails the coast whilst flying the flag of her beloved hometown hailing port, Santa Barbara.

The Experience
"Authentic Sailing Experiences" means a true immersive sailing experience that instills the heart of the wind and ocean into all aboard. It is not just a ride, it is a feeling.

Your party of up to six passengers will enjoy an exhilarating private sailboat charter along the Santa Barbara coastline with magnificent ocean and mountain views. You’ll have the time of your life aboard the classic yacht, with her exquisite wooden features, and smooth sailing style. Sit back, relax, delight in the ocean breeze and occasional wildlife sightings such as harbor seals, sea lions, bottlenose dolphins, and much more.

Policies

Boat Rules
Can we have more than 6 passengers in our party?
Unfortunately no, United States Coast Guard Federal Law prohibits uninspected passenger vessels (UPVs) from carrying more than 6 paying passengers. We value our charter permit and appreciate your understanding.

Are we allowed to bring outside alcohol or food?
We appreciate you not bringing outside food or drink aboard. We have a wonderful selection of beer & wine from the region available from our yacht’s donation bar. Catering options are available during checkout. We have two different sized picnic platters suitable for 2-6 people.

What should we bring?
We recommend dressing in layers as it tends to be 10º cooler on the water than on land. A hat, polarized sunglasses, camera and non-aerosol reef safe sunblock will make your experience more comfortable.
Yacht has warm blankets aboard if you forget a jacket!
Warm socks are encouraged, we have a NO SHOES policy aboard the yacht.

Can we swim?
Our charter insurance does not allow swimming from the vessel. The waters tend to be in the 50’s and 60’s most of the year which is a bit chilly for most folks!

Are there ports to stop at?
Santa Barbara is 30 miles from the nearest port, which is outside of our charter range.

What about the Channel Islands?
We love the Channel Islands and think everyone should take the time to visit them. The closest island is Santa Cruz at 22nm from our harbor, the journey takes an average of 4 hours each way. During the summer months we are happy to charter yacht to the islands for the full day weather permitting for groups up to 4. Please reach out to us via our contact page for pricing and availability.
Alternatively there are public ferries running from Ventura Harbor and Channel Islands Harbor, in Oxnard, daily.

Tipping Policy
We feel our customers deserve the very best which is why our captains are all U.S. Coast Guard licensed Masters, having put in thousands of days at sea to perfect their craft and uphold the highest standards of professionalism, excellence, and safety.

Gratuities are customary across the yachting industry and vary in size by region and type of charter.

The industry standard for U.S. private yacht charters is outlined below:

15% for mediocre service
20% for good service
22%-25% for great service
30%+ for outstanding service
Remember your captain works hard to keep you safe, please tip accordingly if you enjoyed your charter.

ADA Compliance

Passengers must board the vessel through a series of steps and must be ambulatory enough to board the vessel with limited assistance. There is no space on board to accommodate mobility devices. USCG federal regulations require marine operators to insure the safety of all passengers on board. Due to variable conditions caused by wind and sea state certain disabled passengers, service or therapy animals may not be allowed. In compliance with USCG federal safety regulations, access to the vessel is at the sole discretion of the captain.
