Sleep Aboard Offer

We provide a sleep aboard service which offers you the option of sleeping on board your vessel the night prior to charter departure. Check-in is 4:00pm. This gives you time to provision your vessel, unpack and relax the night prior. Your briefing will commence the next morning on board your vessel at 8:30. You will receive a 10-15 minute sleep aboard brief, which involves a quick orientation of the basics on board such as lighting, electrics and toilets etc. We look forward to greeting you in our office prior to boarding whereby we will quickly complete paperwork. Contact our reservations team to book your Sleep Aboard.
