Hester

Hester is a beautiful, long, two-masted clipper of nearly 40 metres in length. She was built as a freighter in 1898 and converted to a comfortable charter sailing boat in her second life.

The great length of this boat is replicated below deck in a large smoking room with sunken TV/reading corner, which makes the boat particularly suited to small conferences and corporate gatherings. The spacious kitchen is separate so that you are not disturbed by noise. For active types, the boat has a speedboat + 6 person RIB that makes it particularly suited to large groups of young people.
