yacht description
Lightheart is the perfect yacht for learning to sail - a fast and stable Hanse 400. Skipper Peter has over 40 years experience and loves introducing people to sailing and having fun onboard. Based in St Croix, he is more than happy to sail either the US or British Virgin islands which allows him to offer more offshore passages and flexible sailing routes.

Ideal for up to four people, there is one king and one queen stateroom both with ensuite bathrooms. You will have no problem whipping up fabulous fare in the well equipped galley. The cockpit is roomy and shaded and there is a hammock forward that has your name on it!

Why book Lightheart - COMPLETE SAILING PACKAGE - Not only can you complete ASA courses but you can enjoy the complete sailing experience from visiting the local supermarket or finding that perfect beach bar. You will go onboard a landlubber but step off with the confidence of a sailor!
