“Amazing week on Yemaya”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just had an amazing week on Cyprians luxury yacht. After a 7 hr drive Cyprian helped us with our bags and couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable & welcome he left us relaxing on deck enjoying the stunning views with a welcoming complementary bottle of wine. The location is the perfect base to visit all of Cornwall's many stunning attractions. There was also additional facilities including on site restaurant, shower facilities and 24/7 secure parking. We decided we had to take the once in a lifetime opportunity for a days sailing the classic 50ft bowman yacht, Cyprian let us get involved as much or as little as we wanted, with Cyprians guidance I spent much of the time steering and got a good overview of how things worked, which was something I have always wanted to do. His many talents even extended to making an amazing meal (which I will be getting the recipes for) including Cornish cream teas which we enjoyed when we anchored in a small bay. A truly fabulous week in Cornwall. We highly recommend a stay on Cyprians yacht.

Cyprian was the perfect host. Great communication and made us feel welcome. Yemaya was ideal for our short trip. Quiet, relaxing and within walking distance of local amenities. Thanks for making our holiday a pleasant experience

“Finding our sea legs…”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Or should we say river since it was on the Penryn at the Falmouth marina.

We are a group of five friends who reached the Yemaya on a dark, rainy night in July. We were all soggy and cold after getting drenched in a downpour and the yacht’s polished wooden interiors were a welcome vision. Firstly, sneakers are a good idea because when the tide is low, the drawbridge to the pier is on a steep incline.

The walk to the yacht is a tad bit long (or so it seemed to us on a chilly, rainy night when all we wanted to do was snuggle into it).

There was enough space to sleep 8 but the owner recommends about five. As it happened we fit right in. When you enter the yacht, on the left is a galley kitchen (well kitted) adjoining a spacious sitting area/saloon.

Immediately next to the saloon is a double bedroom and a tiny cubicle which is actually a toilet with a shower head attached in a corner. The system in the toilet is old-world with a composting toilet and a cranking mechanism to flush the waste away. The bed in the room next to it is comfortable but the length of it is not. It is a small space but it is a yacht after all.

Across the beautifully upholstered saloon is a narrow alley fitted with a single bed and right next to it another bedroom with a bunk bed and a single bed on the side. There is another toilet in this section of the yacht, similar to the other.

Mostly important, the facilities were neat. The sheets in the rooms and the kitchen area were clean. The only spin-off is that you have to use the marina bath/toilet facilities instead of the yacht’s if you want to be comfortable.

Overall, it was a comfortable, fun stay for the five of us.

P.S.: There were small touches that were nice. The owner had left us a bottle of wine and milk and juice in the fridge.

Thanks for the feedback! I would just like to point out that the toilets are Lavac (vacuum toilets) not composting, and are standard on most seagoing yachts of this size. C

“Wonderful day sailing with Cyprian on Yemaya”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Cyprian is a very experienced skipper but is also great fun to be around. We enjoyed a fantastic day sailing - very hands on which was great and all the family got involved. Also superb food when we anchored for lunch. Would love to book a longer trip next time if we can get all the family together again.

The opportunity of staying on the Yemaya was one that couldn't be missed.The Yemaya is a beautiful yacht inside and out and is well loved,sailed and maintained by Cyprian and his family.
The living space is comfortable and homely.All amenities worked well.Beds comfortable.
Cyprian is a welcoming host.He even thought of bringing us some staples for fridge and cupboard.The attention for our comfort much appreciated.The marina also has shower facilities,restaurant,parking etc.Everyone docked here was friendly.Close to Falmouth high street.
We hadn't intended to sail but so glad we did to see the Yemaya in action.This is what the yacht was made for.Cyprian and Justine freely let us take part where we could.It was an unforgettable experience.

“Excellent sailing instruction and a beautiful boat.”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We booked a day of sailing to refresh our knowledge. Cyprian was extremely well organised, briefed us thoroughly and discussed what we might do for the day. We had plenty of opportunity to get hands on. He is a very good instructor. The boat is beautiful!
