I am writing to thank you, the skipper….

I am writing to thank you, the skipper for the wonderful two days we spent on Katabatic. She is truly a beautiful boat that is fully equipped with all the latest state of the art navigational aids with safety showing through as uppermost. The skipper was extremely caring in looking after all on board. The whole experience gave us all great joy from beginning to end. Even the sunset as we entered Portsmouth Harbour was breathtaking. We all express our deep gratitude for a wonderful cruise and cannot wait to be back on board again as soon as we can arrange it. Kindest regards Ian and crew

She’s a lovely yacht and Anton was a superb skipper….

Our family had a brilliant time celebrating a special birthday on Katabatic. She's a lovely yacht and Anton was a superb skipper, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, mixing easily with our motley crew. All the arrangements beforehand went smoothly and we all enjoyed the sailing, whether anchored in the sunshine for lunch off Hurst Castle, flying past the Needles, or berthed for the night in Yarmouth or Cowes, where we even managed to Skype a far away member of the family. We will keep happy memories of this fantastic weekend and many thanks are due to Anton who contributed enormously to our enjoyment. We would enthusiastically recommend Katabatic and her skipper to anyone who is thinking of chartering.....

Chartered many boats before and this was the best…

Thank you for arranging a great weeks sailing together with all the logistics of getting us to and from the boat. We have chartered many boats before and this was the best: all the equipment worked, the fridge worked, the galley was well supplied with proper crockery, cutlery, & sharp knives and the navigation area likewise. I hope that you found the boat in the same condition that you handed her over to us.

A Really Great Day

Thank you Anton and Neil for a fabulous day watching the racing at Cowes Week and sailing in the afternoon. Hospitality was perfect, food and drink in plentiful supply and nothing was too much trouble. I really enjoyed my time at the helm, Katabatic handles beautifully, even for a first time 'skipper'. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a days sailing on Katabatic. Thank you once again for a wonderful day

Thank you again, very much appreciated.

Hi Anton,
Thank you very much for a very enjoyable day, it was exactly what I had hoped for, even the rain didn't really make much difference. The family all loved it and it was a great experience for all of them.
Naturally I would certainly use Salty Dog again for either business or leisure, thank you again, very much appreciated.
Regards

She is a lovely yacht

We had a fantastic and memorable long weekend aboard Antara. She's a lovely yacht, impeccably maintained and well equipped, making for very pleasant sailing. Antara's marina is perfectly situated to explore the Solent and Anton's local knowledge really helped us get the most from our charter. We'll be taking her out again soon.

Thanks for a brilliant day

Thank you very much for letting us take Katabatic out for the day, she is a brilliantly maintained yacht and sails beautifully. Even in relatively light winds, we were able to hit over 10 knots , with a little help from the spring tide! From start to finish, it was all very easy and professional and we look forward to the next time!

Very impressed with both yacht and service

We chartered Antara back in August 2014 and had a superb time. Everything was well organised and Antara was very clean and well equipped and a great yacht to sail. Anton made sure we were fully briefed about the yacht and marina facilities. We had a fantastic weekend sailing from Haslar to Chichester and back. When we returned Anton was there to make sure the handover and our departure was as smooth as our arrival. Very impressed with boat yacht and service. Thanks Anton see you again soon.

Katabatic – the beautiful Dufour 450

Anton at Salty Dog Yacht Charter has looked after myself and crew on several occasions, in fact we are on our sixth charter in less than two years! I think that alone speaks for itself. We have both cruised on Antara and raced -finishing in the top 200 in this years Round The Island Race. She is great to sail and well equipped.
Katabatic - the beautiful Dufour 450 is amazing in so many ways - easy to sail, very fast and beautifully equipped, a real head turner.
See you in August Anton

Salty Dog is our number one choice

We chartered with Salty Dog twice in 2013 and have already booked three charters this year. Salty Dog have been extremely helpful in making our weekends so memorable. We've had the chance to charter both Antara and Katabatic, and they have both been great fun to sail. Despite the much larger length, Katabatic is easy to manoeuvre in port and quick when sailing......and the looks you receive when entering a marina are just awesome! Being located in Gosport, at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour, Salty Dog is in a prime position to charter from. So when we need to get away from the rat-race for a weekend Salty Dog is our number one choice.
