Your yacht, Blue Planet
You’ll quickly feel at home on your beautiful yacht Blue Planet. People tend to fall in love with her at first sight.
This season, Blue Planet had her main sail replaced as well as new standing rigging.
About the boat
Designed by the legendary Bruce Farr, and built by Beneteau in France, Blue Planet is a great-looking sloop of 47 feet. The perfect combination of a beamy spacious hull and a fast sailing vessel, she’s a fully licensed UK registered charter boat operating under a Greek charter licence.

Inside the saloon, the American Cherry wood interior makes for a warm and friendly place to relax or study. Taller guests will be glad to know that there is plenty of headroom. The dining table has seating for ten. There are two bathrooms with hot showers, and there’s also a shower on the stern that makes it quick and easy to rinse off after a swim.
Blue Planet has three roomy double cabins that can sleep six people, but we can easily sleep eight by converting the saloon area into a large and comfortable double bed,(exclusive charter only), the fourth cabin is reserved for Captain and crew. There’s also a hammock out on deck beneath the boom: it’s extremely popular and is often fought over by our younger guests, especially during July and August!
The galley has a two-burner cooker, an oven, a large double fridge, and all the pots, pans, and cutlery that even the most demanding chef could need. There’s also a barbecue mounted on the stern rails, for those evenings when you might like to eat alfresco on board instead of dining out on shore.
