Our Yacht is a 2007 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 39DS. She is a very comfortable boat, with two cabins and a lovely saloon area, below decks.
‘Carried Away’ is equipped with a bathing deck and ladder for easy access to and from the water, Wi-Fi, hot and cold fresh water showers and a full Bimini cover to chill under once you have had enough sun. With room on deck for sunbathing, there will always be somewhere for you to relax and soak in the atmosphere the Caribbean has to offer.
We have lived on ‘Carried Away’ since we set sail on an Adventure in 2013. We sailed her from Fleetwood in Lancashire UK, all the way to the Caribbean. She has looked after us for over 17,000 nautical miles so far, and we have visited many lovely places on our adventure.

We feel safe in each others hands and I am confident you will be safe with us.
We sailed across the Atlantic from Tenerife in the Canary Islands with our eldest son Nick. We didn’t have the smoothest of crossings, but one very calm day, Nick got out his Drone and shot some amazing footage! Click the play button to see how we looked from 500 feet.
Sailing across the Atlantic Ocean had its moments! Luckily we had enough oranges to keep us going.

Now though we prefer the calm warm waters of the Caribbean Sea
