Nautical Dreams

Nautical Dreams is a lovely spacious Bavaria 42 Cruiser. With a chart plotter and radar in the cockpit and GPS at the chart table you will struggle to get lost. The auto helm allows all to relax while she glides you along (please just remember to keep a lookout as she has yet to learn how to do that!).

Down below there is plenty of room. 3 double cabins provide ample sleeping space and 2 heads so you don't always have to share/wait. The saloon is spacious enough for everyone to sit and relax and the well appointed galley has all the usual equipment and 2, yes 2, fridges...

Customer Testimonials

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
