Bowman Yacht Charters

Life is all about experiences that create memories that last a lifetime. Join us for a hands on sailing holiday on our beautiful 50ft Bowman Cutter, Yemaya of Helford and really experience the feeling of “getting away from it all”. Blend some of the most exquisite cruising grounds with bountiful wildlife and fabulous scenery, incredible food, shoreside expeditions and great company for a truly memorable adventure. We specialise in hands on sailing holidays that merge traditional techniques with a modern twist. You can relax and enjoy the grace, seaworthiness and character that makes Yemaya of Helford unique.

Whether you are a novice or grizzled sea dog our voyages and day trips are suitable for all.

With no experience necessary, come and experience sailing at its best. We welcome solo adventurers, couples, or groups of friends or family of all ages. Yemaya is also available for whole boat charter, perfect for a group of up to 8, for a special occasion or great adventure holiday.

Although our skippered sailing holidays have a professional crew, we encourage everyone to join in as this is a truly hands on sailing adventure.   There are many chances to learn the ropes, steer, hoist sails and enjoy life onboard this beautiful bermudan cutter. Getting involved in all aspects of running the boat is good fun, a great adventure and a rewarding teamwork experience.
