Flamingo add new Beneteau Oceanis 45 to the fleet

Date published: 03 June 2019

Scottish sailing holiday specialists Flamingo Yacht Charters took delivery of a brand-new luxury Beneteau Oceanis 45 yacht this month. 

This fabulous yacht is a great addition to the current fleet and will be based at Largs Yacht Haven. Capable of carrying up to 10 crew on board and with 4 cabins she is one of the biggest yachts available for charter in Scotland.

Business Development and Operations Manager, Hazel Pearson, said:

“With 'Scotland's Year of Coasts & Waters 2020' fast approaching, we at Flamingo Yacht Charters, decided what better time to add yet another fantastic new boat to our fleet. Flamingo is the ideal yacht for exploring the waters of the Clyde and beyond. She is perfect for a corporate day out with colleagues or a longer trip with friends and family. She’s sails like a dream and motors well should the wind drop. She is very spacious both above and below deck and makes you feel very special whilst you are aboard.”

When asked what clients think of the new boat, Hazel said: “The response from our clients so far has been really positive, we already have a lot of bookings on her for the summer from clients from the UK, Europe and as far afield as Russia. If you would like to get out on her this year, we’ve got a couple of weeks in June available that you can snap up if you are quick and we are even running a special offer of £350 off to welcome her to the fleet!”

Flamingo Yacht Charters purchased their new yacht from Sunbird International at Clyde Marina, who are highly skilled in yacht brokerage, sales and aftersales.

Chris Dodgshon of Sunbird International at Clyde Marina said:

“The Oceanis 45 is a great cruising yacht to sail away on and is ideal for charter due to her 4-cabin layout and spacious interior.  We are very excited to be working with Flamingo Yacht Charters to provide them with the high-quality yachts that they require for their growing charter fleet.  We are looking forward to seeing ‘Flamingo of Clyde’ out earning her keep alongside her sistership ‘Skylark’ the first in the fleet bought last year. Sunbird and Flamingo look forward to developing their close working relationship with the joint aim of improving Scottish Marine Tourism."
