A Unique Yachting Experience

La Girafe III is a Fora Marine RM 1260.  At present she is the only vessel of this type based in Scotland and as such is the only one available for Skippered Charter or for RYA courses. 

We would be delighted to welcome you on board to spend time on a very special yacht in some of the most beautiful and remote sailing waters in the UK.”

What our customers say

Joe Hallwood

Day Skipper, RYA Sailing Course
