Ship information Island Solitude
INFORMATION ABOUT THE SAILING YACHT – ISLAND SOLITUDE
She carries 12 guests and we have chartered her for our group exclusively. When she was built in British Columbia in 2017 they had the environment in mind. For example, the yacht's motors exceed the EPA's (environmental protection agency) Emisson Standards. At the on-deck wheelhouse the group can share delicious meals while enjoying the beautiful vistas with panoramic views! The waters are calm and easy to maneuver in and it is a great experience to view nature and wildlife this close to the surface.
There is a small library onboard.
Gratuities are included.
During the days you have unlimited access to water, juice, coffee and tea. There is a limited amount of alcoholic beverages on board. Two glass of beer or wine are served with the dinners. Please note that the ship has "to anchor-policy", meaning that you for safety reasons are not allowed to drink alcohol close to an outing. Of environmental reasons there will not be any carbonated beverages onboard.
