Private Sailing Trips on a Classic Boat

Private Sailing Charters – Sailing Barcelona

Built in 1947, Gemini has all the style of a timeless classic

With plenty of space on her wooden teak deck, you can relax to your heart’s content with friends and family. You won’t be crowded into a small cockpit like on modern boats, as you can move around as you wish.

As soon as you have stepped aboard and we have all introduced ourselves, we will prepare to leave the mooring, we’ll hoist the sails, switch off the engine, and start sailing in the beautiful Mediterranean sea.

During your boat tour, we’ll sail along the Barcelona coastline as the wind direction and sea conditions let us, enjoying a very different and spectacular view of the city. You can kick back and relax, or help out with sailing the boat and have a go at the tiller, just as you wish.

Built in 1947, Gemini provides an unforgettable location to:

  • Spend some quality time with your family
  • Celebrate a birthday or anniversary
  • Enjoy a peaceful interlude during a hectic stag or hen weekend
  • Have a relaxing day out with friends
  • Treat yourselves to a romantic sunset cruise

“There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. “– Ratty, The Wind in the Willows.
