Arctic Circle

Sail the Norwegian Coast within the Arctic Circle on board a luxury 55ft yacht.

Explore the coastline from Trondheim up towards Tromso including the quite remarkable Lofoten and VesterĂ¥len Islands. Maybe see Sperm Whales, pufffins, Skuas, Razor Bills, Fulmars, Seals, Porpoises, a Moose or two, maybe evening a swimming Moose.

The scenery is simply stunning with grand vistas of snow capped jagged peaks, rows of glacier formed U shaped valleys, lush green mountain sides that almost look tropical, countless waterfalls. Enjoy the midnight sun. There are opportunities to hike and fish. Photographers from around the world visit the Lofoten Islands.

Santosa was launched in 2017 and is well suited to Arctic cruising. There are only two ensuite double cabins available for guest crew. Each cabin has a power shower, there is a great heating system on board if it is needed. The saloon is light and airy and above the deck meaning you can sit in comfort and watch the world go by. Of course if you want to get involved in the sailing then you are more than welcome.

These trips are run in conjunction with our sister Company First Class Sailing and more details can be found here .

Brilliant Day on the Water

Fantastic days sailing with friends on a wonderful boat. It certainly helped that we had 3 very experienced sailors with us, would highly recommend Firstaway sailing if you want a day on the water in the Solent. - Clive B

Firstaway Yacht Charters

Thanks Sally and Eric for great service and a brilliant day with Firstaway Yacht Charters. Excellent first experience of sailing. Skipper Eric was great and let us all take a turn at the helm. A great way to celebrate special occasions. Boat was clean and well maintained with good facilities too. Would recommend Firstaway to anyone wanting to take a trip sailing. - R & A Jenner

May Bank Holiday Charter of Cascadeur

We were 7 onboard this Jeanneau 12.5 m and while there wasn't much wind, with what little there was we managed 7 kts. Cascadeur is a great charter boat - roomy, clean, well equipped. Eric and Sally were very helpful and clearly know their stuff. - Peter R

Highly recommended

Wonderful people. Sally in particular couldn't have been more helpful. The skippers were professional and experienced, but also good fun and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Thanks all! - Sam N

Day trip with great skipper

Excellent company, with a very well appointed boat (Zara). Nothing was a problem to them, despite me chopping and changing a lot. Our skipper - Gavin - was fantastic. Knowledgable, friendly and great company. I would certainly use this company again.- ASQC

Great experience in Solent with Firstaway

I chartered with Firstaway 3 days a Gib'Sea 37ft yatch. Very well kept and clean. excellent service and assistance, very easy checkin-checkout process. we did some 60 miles chilling around the Solent, Yarmouth harbour was also an excellent experience. highly recommended. - Tommaso M

An exciting day

A beautiful day on the water around the Solent... I was slightly anxious as I don’t have webbed feet but Eric and Sally were great hosts and competent sailors... now looking forward to my next seafaring adventure. - Karen
