About this listing

Kick off your shoes and leave your worries on the shore, relax in peace and tranquility with panoramic views of the estuary and enjoy the ever changing cycle of life on the river and watch the sun as it sets beneath the western horizon.

The space

Yemaya of Helford is a 50ft Holman & Pye designed yacht, commissioned in 1982 as a fast cruiser racer. She offers accommodation for 8 but is most comfortable with a maximum of 5. She offers a classic varnished wood interior, aft cabin with a double and a single bed, 2 bunk beds and a pilot berth in the saloon and a double in the focsle. She has a fully appointed galley kitchen with gas hob and oven, fridge & freezer. 2 toilets with ensuite shower and sink, with running hot water. Wifi and USB connection for I-Pods and MP3 in saloon with comfortable seating and dining space. Outside seating in the cockpit area and on a fine day a table can be used for dining under the stars.

Guest access

Yemaya is moored in the Premier Marina in Falmouth, so guests can benefit from the use of the shower/ bathroom facilities, laundry facilities, free parking and use of the Marina bar/restaurant

Interaction with guests

We will meet and greet you and give you a short briefing on the boat and its equipment as much information as you require on the surrounding area. We live a stones throw from the marina so are on hand should you need any help or advice

Other things to note

Yemaya is an active charter yacht so available to all is the opportunity to go sailing with a fully qualified skipper for a 1/2 day, a full day or longer. You can enjoy a local sight seeing tour of the area with lunch or, if you are more adventurous, take an overnight stay in a secluded anchorage. The cost of these trips is in addition to the accommodation but with special rates for AirBnB clients. What better way to see the area than from the water?

Yemaya is a beautifully crafted yacht that has been loved and cared for. We love the idea that new people will get the opportunity to share her and experience a Cornish adventure they will not forget.

Can't recommend this enough. We managed 8 on board and everybody had a magical time. Cyprian is the perfect host and skipper. The boat and its position is idyllic to say the least!

The cockpit of Yemaya is a great place to sit and watch the sun go down. Even in rain, with the wind in the right direction, you can still enjoy the fresh air from the shelter of the generous sprayhood. Below decks, the expanses of lovingly varnished woodwork creates a welcoming and stylish atmosphere. Cyprian, the owner is meticulous in his presentation of the yacht and obviously takes great pride in her appearance. While every yacht has her idiosyncrasies, a thorough explanation was given of all Yemaya's workings and all the appliances were in the best of order. I felt privileged to live on this handsome yacht for the weekend.

This was such a unique & fantastic experience. Loved it so much that I couldn't wait to get back on the boat after a day out in Falmouth. Host was so helpful & friendly. Boat is very well equipped. Definitely going to come again.

Had a great stay at Cyprian’s 50ft yacht. I stayed with two other friends and we all had a comfortable stay with an opportunity to do sailing.

Great stay on a comfortable boat. It was lovely being moored on the river - very peaceful. Cyprian was extremely helpful and we had a great half day's sailing with him.

Stayed during Easter half term early April, great location right at the end of the marina so you can see everything. The boat was great, a little tight on space as you'd expect but had everything you needed and it was fun embracing the experience, location was good, walking distance from the local Sainsburys and a 20 min walk into Falmouth. Upper desk restaurant in the marina was good, not a huge choice of food but enough for a couple of nights, we also went to the pub in Helford which was great, lovely seafood and a nice pint of ale, Weather was kind to us so we had some perfect morning views and evening sunsets. Had a half day out on the boat with Cyprian and Craig which was really good, daughter and her friend and my wife were a little apprehensive, but Cyprian and Craig(?) were very experienced and we even managed to grab a beer and nibbles in Helford where the waters were calmer, definitely a highlight of the trip, will definitely be back again in the summer!
