Description of Germaine's sailboat

Sailboat Beneteau First 40.7 12m

Escapado is a hidden treasure, one of the last 40.7's to ever be made and carefully cared for whilst being lightly used she is in excellent condition and offers a very comfortable and competitive ride. She was last raced in 2016 and won the Ouistreham Trophy. She is equally capable cruising and is arguably in the best condition of any of the First 40.7's. She comfortably accommodates 8-10 people and is MCA coded to Category 2 waters meaning she is equipped to one of the highest standards. In recent years she has been used less than a handful of times for family trips in the Solent. Moored in Port Hamble Marina excellent facilities are available for dining and relaxing. 2020 saw us provide skippered charters for several families with young children. Our instructor's experience teaching children and young adults allowed us to provide opportunities that engaged all family members. Please note that there is an additional charge for racing to cover additional insurance premiums and support: If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

We had a great day with Germaine sailing to the isle of Wright! It couldn’t be better. Germaine is great involving and engaging the kids in sailing.

Four of us had a great day out on Escapado in the Solent, under the superb guidance of Charlie. Involved a good workout with the main and headsails (no furling sails in this boat is it’s optimized for racing). We got exactly the experience we were hoping for with no hidden costs or surprises. Charlie was a great companion and teacher for us, and we felt very confident with him in charge. Thankyou to Germaine and Charlie.

Great weekend in all respects. Comms beforehand were good & provided all of the required information. Charlie was an excellent skipper & pitched things just right for the group on board. An excellent experience all round. Thank you.

The boat trip has been fantastic!!! Jan is such a great captain and we all enjoyed the whole trip. The boat is spacious and the space (table) outside is just magnificent for a lunch/dinner. The boat has everything that is needed for a comfortable trip. 100000% recommend booking them.

Really good day on Escapardo. The skipper was really patient and helped us all get involved making it really good fun. We were a group of seven from 12years to 80 and really enjoyed it.

Great communication with setting up the day sailing. Then a fun day out. It was very much enjoyed by both adults and the child in the group as it was made fun for all ability levels. Thank you!

Germaine was really helpful right from the first contact. We needed an instructor as skipper, and he made a huge effort to find two who could cover the 5 days we needed. The boat was great to sail, and being a racing yacht, was faster and more responsive than the charters I have had before. Oli was fun to sail with, and he taught us a lot about dealing with challenging conditions. The second instructor, Andy, had years of experience and a very calm and clear way of instructing which built confidence. We had a great time, in spite of the storm which blew out the last day. I highly recommend Germaine and his team for anyone looking to hire.

Great weekend on Germaine's boat. He is kind, patient, tolerant and flexible. We got out of the weekend precisely what we wanted, and all enjoyed it immensely. We'll be back for a mile-builder weekend in the Spring. Highly highly recommend Germaine who is a lovely chap.

We had a great day out with Germaine aboard Escapado. While we were not a typical racing charter Germaine did a great job adapting to our needs, which included two young sailors (4 and 6 yrs old). Germaine was great with the kids. Thank you!

We had a great day out on Germaine’s Escapado. Germaine was available to help with queries and to ensure we were well informed on all the details. He also had a friend meet us at the end of the rental to help with docking which was appreciated. Thanks again
