The American Sailing Association has chartered the yacht Arabella and invites our members to join us on an amazing seven day sailing vacation in the British Virgin Islands
Arabella is one of the most beautiful sailing yachts in the world. She epitomizes classic elegance and graceful style and has been an icon along the East Coast in summer and in the Caribbean in winter. Arabella is also US Coast Guard certified, one of the few mega yachts with this designation in our country.
“Arabella” is a 156 foot mega yacht featuring three masts with staysail schooner rigging. She has 20 staterooms with all the modern luxuries you’d expect on a mega yacht – all rooms have their own shower, heads, and individual climate control. “Arabella” has teak decks, a Jacuzzi, cushioned sun deck, as well as a covered aft veranda. Her main salon is spacious enough for all her guests to enjoy fine dining and features a beautiful varnished mahogany bar.
Arabella is an incredible sailing vessel and the captain & crew love to hoist the sails, turn off the engine and feather the prop and give you the chance to helm this magnificent vessel. Discover the magic of Arabella as she slices through the water powered by the wind.
The British Virgin Islands are the best cruising grounds in the world. Your week of sailing will take you from one great anchorage to another. You will start from themain island of Tortola and then visit Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, Jost Van Dyke and Norman Island.
...not as a tourist, but as an exclusive guest onboard a mega yacht!
“Steering a 157 foot schooner under full canvas in 20-25 plus winds was exciting, with the wind tearing at my hair. With beautiful blue skies and turquoise seas in 80 degrees, what could be better?”
Marge Benning, Denver CO
“Everything is taken care of. You don’t have to worry about anything. You just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery, fresh sea air and fantastic ports of call to explore. In a very short time, we all got to know each other and everyone felt like family to me. I learned a lot, and enjoyed sharing this brief moment in time and space on this lovely boat called the Arabella.”
“What do a film producer, a tech consultant, a dad and his son have in common with a group of Puritans? They all boarded a boat named Arabella bound for Massachusetts, albeit 385 years apart. Unlike John Winthrop and crew the modern passengers sailed in comfort on an ASA sponsored voyage to Martha’s Vinyard, Nantucket and Cuttyhunk islands!”
“Absolutely no better way to relax… A full day of sailing aboard the “melts my heart” Arabella, lobster for dinner and slow trip back to the schooner during golden hour. Fantastic!”
Fred Wyckoff and Gerri Haan
Everyone deserves this type of mega yacht sailing experience at some point in their lives, but few can afford it until now. As an ASA member you have the opportunity to join us on this unique, and unforgettable, sailing vacation.
Day 1 & 2
Arabella will be anchored and waiting for you off Soper's Hole (her draft is too deep to come to dock). Guests will be able to board Arabella after 4pm on Day 1. Once aboard, you will be assigned your cabin.
Day 2 we set sail to our first destination, Marina Cay. There is good snorkeling nearby and you can visit luxurious Scrub Island. The sunset from the top of Marina Cay is memorable. A quick walk over to the One Show Bar at Scrub Island promises a picturesque beach, snorkeling and plenty of rum drinks. Dinner this evening will be at Scrub Island Resort.
