Meet the Fleet

We currently have four yachts in the Seattle Charters line-up, each offering unique experiences. We also have access to several additional vessels as the need arises. Call us with your ideas! We look forward to making them reality.

MV Splendido, Legacy 40

This luxury power boat option offers the opportunity to not only see the city waterfront up close, but also to explore “around the corner,” past Alki beach and West Seattle, over to remote Blake Island and Blakely Harbor on the far side of Puget Sound towards the majestic Olympic Mountains. Moored near the locks, we often cruise the protected inner waterways, exploring the commercial ship canal, houseboats in Lake Union, Gas Works Park, the Center for Wooden Boats, and out past UW Husky Stadium across Lake Washington towards Bill Gate’s compound. Swimming opportunities abound in the fresh water of Lake Washington and Lake Union. It’s “urban cruising” at it’s finest.

We also are able to cruise comfortably year round with excellent visibility and comfort inside the well-appointed salon, as needed. Splendido is a fine example of the down-east style yachts which are regarded for having easily driven hulls and the ability to handle various sea conditions with ease.

With twin Cummins 370’s she has the ability to get up and run over 20 knots yet she is just as comfortable at 5-10 knots. The finely crafted interior of the Legacy 40 is a blend of mahogany woodwork and trim with top-quality fixtures. The salon’s large windows and lovely teak and holly cabin sole create a very comfortable and traditional environment. The salon is finished in cherry trim with satin varnish. The decks are teak and holly with gloss varnish.

With the upper flybridge, wide walk-around decks, expansive foredeck and spacious aft cockpit, you will have all the room you need to enjoy the great outdoors and spectacular views you’ll experience in every direction. As one client commented, “The way it’s designed, it has the feel of a sailboat. There’s a yachtsy, Herreshoff feel to it… you look at the quality of construction, and you know this boat was made by a sailboat builder.”

Sailing vessel Bimi on Lake Union charter voyage

SV Bimi, a Seattle landmark

Bimi is a unique, colorful 32 foot wooden Gaff-Rigged ketch (45′ overall with bow sprit and boomkin), built in the style of the early East Coast catboats in 1955. Bimi sports an enormous cockpit and lots of colors which help provide a sailing celebration to remember! Her wide cockpit and “beamy” design provide a stable platform for sailing, and her blue hull with red and yellow gaff-rigged sails invite attention wherever she sails. Based in the warmer fresh waters of Lake Washington, we often tailor sails aboard Bimi on the other side of the city, in Lake Union, and through the ship canal past UW Husky stadium towards Kirkland. Swimming is optional but encouraged!

Bimi has been plying the Seattle waters since 1982 since she left her native San Francisco and has been featured in many news stories and artist renditions of Seattle. Come aboard a little piece of Seattle history!

SV Mangata, 38 foot Catalina 

Mangata, a modern Catalina 380 sailing sloop, is available just outside the Ballard locks at Shilshole Bay Marina in Puget Sound. She has a comfortable cockpit and cabin with room for up to 6 passengers. Mangata invites long tacks across Puget Sound towards Bainbridge Island, with weather conditions dictating runs into Elliott Bay or northwards towards Kingston.
