New Scottish charter company launched
Yachting Monthly: A new yacht charter company has just been launched in north west Scotland. Torridon Yacht Charter offers a Hanse 385, as well as a luxury cottage next to the water, for anyone looking for a sailing retreat.
A new yacht charter operation, Torridon Yacht Charter, has being established, operating from Shieldaig, Loch Torridon. Located 75 miles from Inverness, it may not be the closest base to charter from, but it offers a mainland location, pontoon access, and is on the doorstep of some of the country’s most beautiful cruising grounds. Inverness is served by flights from most UK and European airports.
The first yacht in the Torridon Yacht Charter fleet is a Hanse 385. Coded for eight charter guest and built in 2013, she is fitted with an Eberspacher heating and teak decks. She will operate on a bareboat charter basis and customers will benefit from the Shieldaig community pontoon for embarkation and disembarkation.
‘We are really excited to launch Torridon Yacht Charter, which will be a sister company to Torridon Sea Tours. We look forward to welcoming our first guests. While the Torridon area is bewitching in itself, it is an ideal starting point to cruise the northwest coast of Scotland, including the Summer Isles, the Isle of Skye, the Shiant Isles and the Outer Hebrides.’
