 SAILING YACHT

Discover the stunning South Devon coast on board of this classic wooden sailing yacht "Escape".

Escape is a 43-foot wooden classic gaff yawl built in 1937
by Kristensen in Norway. She was originally designed by Colin Archer as a sailing lifeboat but was refined to make her slightly smaller and easier to sail by her owners. Escape is fully MCA coded to carry 8 passengers plus 2 crew. 

Help to set the sails, coil the ropes and steer her or simply sit back back and watch the world go by!
