VentureSail Holidays

VentureSail Holidays offer unique sailing holidays all over the world, including Scotland, the Canary Islands, and the Caribbean. Two of our six vessels cruise the Western Isles of Scotland at some point in the year, offering their guests the chance to get up close and personal with the diverse marine life, sail through the beautiful scenery and experience life in the Outer Hebrides. Zuza and Bessie Ellen provide very different, but equally brilliant experiences for their guests.

Built in 1998 in South Africa, Zuza is the most modern of the VentureSail fleet. She was built as a purpose-built liveaboard, rather than a conversion, so you’ll find all the necessary mod-cons on board to ensure her guests travel in style and comfort. Relax on deck as the stunning landscape sails past, and be sure to bring binoculars to spot the vast range of rare wildlife that live in the Outer Hebrides. 

Bessie Ellen provides a slightly different offering to her guests. With the same wildlife spotting chances as Zuza, Bessie Ellen is a classic boat, built in 1904 as a trading ketch. Now an impressive two masted cruising vessel, Bessie offers her guests the chance to get hands-on with traditional block and tackle sailing under the skilled eye of skipper Nikki. With fabulous food on board, stunning scenery and a classic sailing experience, Bessie Ellen is perfect for those wanting to sail rather than cruise - and there is no sailing experience necessary, so if you fancy learning the ropes, climb on board.

Bessie Ellen and other ships in the VentureSail fleet sail oceans all over the world, from the Baltic Sea to the Caribbean.
