Introducing SY Dallinghoo

Step back in time when you come aboard the schooner Dallinghoo. This full-keel topsail gaff-rigged beauty combines the classic design and romantic feel of a tall ship with all the comforts of a modern yacht.

Dallinghoo is from the drawing board of renowned yacht designer Dudley Dix of Rhode Island New York. She was built in 1990 but underwent a two-year keel-up rebuild from 2014 to 2016, which was just completed. She now offers a modern and very well-equipped interior which is completely new and fully air-conditioned. Its varnished Burmese teak trim and teak floors create a timeless and light ambience.

Equipped with an inflatable RIB boat for general running around, Dallinghoo also offers a classic gaff-rigged sailing dinghy for exploring the bay in true "Swallows and Amazon" style. And with four kayaks and two stand-up paddle boards, there is no shortage of toys.

Cabins & Quarters 

With a lovely master cabin at aft, two further double cabins and a twin berth cabin, there is accommodation for up to eight guests. All cabins come with their own en-suite facilities. Dallinghoo also offers a spacious aft-deck with table and seating for eight to wine and dine as well as ample forward deck space for guests to enjoy the sail and the sun.
