Learn to Sail on our Fabulous 42 Foot Yacht
The training is aboard our yacht, Coriolis, a Sweden Yachts 42…..“probably the best-sailing 42-footer ever built.” It is a fast sailyacht which performs beyond expectations, and reacts to sail changes like a thoroughbred. Below deck, is a magnificently crafted interior in fine wood. There’s a handsome saloon for entertaining, three double cabins, and two head compartments with shower.
