Stay with us

If you are looking for a holiday with a difference, then staying on board one of our classic sailing ships will offer you a unique stay in a unique environment. Safely moored behind the lockgate in Charlestown’s Inner Harbour, our ships provide a range of accommodation, from the more luxurious and spacious to slightly smaller yet still classic, beautiful ships. Stays can be romantic getaways for two, or breaks with family and friends.


The Location

The Inner Harbour is in the heart of Charlestown, and staying on board, moored alongside the quay offers a beautiful perspective on the Harbour. At night, you can sit on deck and look at the clear skies and during the day enjoy watching Harbour life in action. The Harbour has a fantastic range of pubs, bars and restaurants. Within the Inner Harbour, the Rum Sailor is a must for those who enjoy a drink with a twist. Cubs Coffee offers first class coffee, homemade cakes and snacks, Charlestown Fish Company has a delicious range of fresh fish dishes and from April-October, HarbourQ offers amazing quay-side dining.

Beyond the Inner Harbour there are more eateries to choose from: The Longstore with their infamous steaks and seafood, The Pier House, a spacious pub with superb views, Tallships Creamery is a must for ice cream lovers –  and there are many more to choose from.

Vessels that are available for Air BnB depend on the time of year and sailing schedules. We currently offer Air BnB on Anny, Mascotte and Our Daddy, as well as more basic accommodation, in the form of bare-bunks on board Pen Glas. The range of ships available for accommodation is constantly changing, as vessels come and go depending on their sailing season. Feel free to call or email us if you need help making your booking!
