Ever fancied exploring the Norwegian fjords by yacht?

Each year our sister Company, First Class Sailing, sends two yachts to explore the Norwegian Fjords and coastline. The scenery is fantastic and breath taking.

The two yachts are well suited to such voyages but quite different.

One is a Challenger 72 and goes from Portsmouth to the area around Stavanger and Bergen and back in one voyage. The other yacht is a Bruce Roberts 55ft with only two double luxury cabins available for guest crew. This boat goes up further north to the Lofoten and VesterĂ¥len Islands.

Luxury sailing in Norway on Santosa

Santosa is a 55ft Bruce Roberts Ketch. She was launched in 2017 and has a high latitude rig. On board are two luxury ensuite double cabins available to book for guest crew.

Santosa will sail from Southampton to Bergen, then to Trondheim, then on to Bodo where she will explore he Lofoten and VesterĂ¥len Islands before heading back down the Norwegian Coast and then over to Scotland. There are a number of different legs available to book, from 9 to 14 day voyages.

Challenger 72 to Norway

16 day voyage to the Fjords and back. The boat is a 72ft yacht that was built to sail around the world, a feat it accomplished twice. She is well suited to sailing up the North Sea.

This trip is a great opportunity to build miles, experience big boat sailing, sail up and down the North Sea and to explore a truly dramatic part of the world.

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

Firstaway run a great charter business: their yachts are in very good condition, always well prepared, properly cleaned; nothing is too much trouble; friendly and professional. I have been chartering from Firstaway for nearly 20 years and would always recommend them and never look elsewhere! - Mackeaj

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
