Sail the Grenadines in Caribbean style on schooner Jambalaya
Jambalaya is a “real” Caribbean traditional schooner with modern amenities. 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 new 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.
-Guest cabins two and three each have a double bed, share a bathroom.
-The bathrooms have a shower, lots of counter space, fluffy towels, and a selection of L’Occitane toiletries.
-Crew has separate quarters and entrance.
Captains Danny and Monique look forward to welcoming you aboard their Schooner Jambalaya.
Danny has known Jambalaya since she was built in Carriacou.
He has been running a day charter business in Grenada with locally built wooden sloops and has now expanded the fleet with Jambalaya to offer term charters through the Grenadines.
When he is not doing charters he will be at a Classics Regatta somewhere in the Caribbean.
Monique is a sailor from the heart and a passionate ocean conservationist. Monique brings her eco-savvy by providing sustainable sailing adventures on Jambalaya. Her passion is adventuring the seas. Her mission is to use sailing to connect her guests to the ocean and foster appreciation of the Caribbean culture. She is always keen to share her enthusiasm by guiding her guests above and below the waves.
They both sailed in the Caribbean for many years and their knowledge of the sailing area is second to none. They have now returned to their favorite cruising grounds : the Windward Islands. Enjoy the special experience of being under full sail on their traditional wooden schooner and journey back in time to sailing as it used to be!
