Grenadines sailing


Sail the Grenadines in Caribbean style on schooner Jambalaya


the yacht:

Jambalaya is a “real” Caribbean traditional yacht. She was built in 2002 in Carriacou the island with the most famous boat building tradition in the Caribbean. In fact, the building of Jambalaya revived and popularized that industry.

Jambalaya is the first Antillean schooner to be built on Carriacou in many years, once one of the great centers of wooden boat construction in the Caribbean. Crafted by the master shipwrights on the island, she is an authentic and actual expression of the wooden ship building culture that once dominated the Caribbean.

However, the then owner did intend to use her for crewed yacht charters rather than as a cargo ship, hence you will find an unique combination of tradition and modern luxurious amenities, especially after the extensive refit by her current owners in 2010. See slideshows for an impression of her looks.


The very well ventilated interior comfortably accommodates up to seven guests in three private cabins:
-The light and airy master suite has a queen-size bed with ample wardrobe and storage space and its own personal entrance giving you total privacy. It also has an office desk offering generous bookshelves and storage. A large settee (which can be used as a single bed) surrounded by a large library provides a comfortable area for reading under the natural light. Private shower and toilet.
