A Classical Lady with grand style and character
Stepping aboard 30m Schooner Dallinghoo is like taking a trip back in time, to Ye Olde Days of gaff-rigged tall ships, in all their splendour and style. She was built in 1990, then treated to a top-to-toe refit and facelift in 2014-16.
Now she combines all the glamour and traditional feel of a classic yacht, with the latest in modern technology and interior design to make her super-comfortable as a liveaboard sailboat. She still features original Burmese teak fittings and flooring, with bright, cheerful Thai silk adornments to add to her character.
The yacht usually sleeps up to 8 guests in total, with a huge master suite aft; two other spacious double cabins plus a 4th guest cabin which can be a double or twins. All have en suite facilities and air-con. Or for those who prefer their sleep to be more au naturel, each cabin has quiet fans and plenty of ventilation.
Down below, there is a large, semi-circular dining area, which can seat 8 guests with plenty of space and comfort. Or of course, dining under the stars is always a magical option; to match the “magic” of what comes out of the galley, from her amazing Thai chef!
You are more than welcome to get involved in the sailing, and learn about the old art of sailing a gaff-rigged yacht; or sit back and relax on her expansive, shaded deck; taking in the stunning scenery surrounding you. When at anchor, there are plenty of boat toys to play with; kayaks, SUPs and a small sailing dinghy. For certified divers, there is a compressor and dive gear onboard; if anyone is a little “rusty” on their scuba skills and needs a refresher, a divemaster can be added to the crew also.
