Saltair 3

Your experience of a lifetime is waiting onboard 

"let's go Sailing"

Saltair 3 is a 42’ Fountaine Pajot Venezia.

She got her name from the small seaside community we lived in on Vancouver Island BC, Canada called "Saltair". The 3 is for the three of us.

 

While onboard, the entire starboard side is yours to enjoy.

With 2 cabins and 1  bathroom to yourselves, you will enjoy plenty of space and privacy.

Catamarans have oversized space compared to other sailing boats. You won't feel like you are in close quarters on Saltair 3. The salon, the cockpit and out on the tramps, the foredeck, or in the Dolphin chairs there is plenty of space to enjoy this amazing experience.

The Experience...

Sail, Learn, Relax and Enjoy... this all inclusive sailing experience is yours to customize...

 

While sailing with us you will be introduced to all that this lifestyle has to offer. You will have the opportunity to learn to sail a Catamaran, taking the helm to navigate and plan for weather along with anchoring skills and boat systems. Don't worry, there wont be a test!

We will spend our days sailing to new anchorages where you can snorkel reefs or sunken wrecks, hike scenic desert trails, kayak, visit remote beaches, explore local culture or just chill on deck with a cocktail in hand and take in the scenery.
