Crinan Hotel is situated in some of the finest sailing cruising ground in the world. The hotel is located at the end of the Crinan Canal and is the gateway to Loch Crinan for many sailors and yachtsmen. For a memorable trip and to experience this excellent sailing location for yourself why not charter our 100 year old crewed classic sailing yacht 'Truant'.
This boat is very beautiful and one of the only of her type left in the world. Built in 1910 in Scotland by undoubtedly the most famous yacht designer to have lived "William Fife III", TRUANT is an 8 meter gaff race yacht.
Winning over 200 races in her time, Truant was one of the most successful boats in her class, including winning the 1912 European championships against an Olympic fleet.
She now has a more relaxed life and is recently been restored back to her former glory.
Charters can be tailor made to suit your preferences with personalised itineraries, lobsters lunches on board or at a deserted beach or a stop at a local pub. Day trips/ half day trips leave and return from Crinan or we can sail further afield with planned overnighting at other hotels. The boat is limited to a maximum of 4 guests.
