The Sailing-Classics concept:

Sailing-Classics cruises with 16-26 guests (cabin charter), combining authentic sailing without fixed schedule with great comfort and high-quality service (3 meals a day plus coffee and cake, good cuisine), watersports, tender service, shore excursions, etc. On regular cruises we sail between 3-6h every day. Guests are welcome to help with handling the sails and navigation. 

Life on Board

Life on board requires a certain lifestyle. The international crew (mostly European) speak English amongst each other, while guests are 90% German speaking (German, Swiss, Austrian, some Dutch).
We sail with guests, so every crewmember represents the company and is responsible for guests’ well-being. Crew is in close contact to guests at all times. We want our guests to feel at home on board and expect a friendly and hospitable attitude from all crew. Workdays are intense and long. Service crew is working in shifts but with no fixed cruising schedule, working hours stay flexible. Depending on captain and workload, crew may get to visit shore every now and then.
Accommodation for crew is in double and triple cabins. All crew wears the Sailing Classics uniform. Food, water, juices, tea and filter coffee are available free of charge. Soft drinks, beer and wine are charged for crew at a substantial discount. Three meals per day (same excellent quality as for guests) are offered in crew mess.

  • Contact with guests (important!) and providing overall guest care at all times
  • Responsible for smooth everyday operation of service/hotel department, incl. housekeeping services, laundry management, inventories, food and beverage service, clean-up
