Here at Yacht Songbird we love adventure. It's in our DNA. Nothing gives us greater pleasure or satisfaction than spending time sailing to new bays and anchor for a relaxing swim just for a day or spend three weeks crossing oceans to far flung lands. For us, sailing is a passion and way of life. We are excited to share this passion with you on the luxury 90ft Songbird sailing yacht.
Join one of our planned charters, which sail to a variety of exciting, sometimes challenging journeys. Or, charter Songbird for a custom-tailored voyage or event. We sail to popular locations, and some less known, but no less lovely, off the beaten track locations.
I wanted to create a business that could help people realize their dreams of sailing to faraway places, while continuing to fulfill my dreams of sailing to different parts of the world. We created a tier-access model providing the opportunity for anyone to sail on Songbird. We work with universities, and research institutions offering the sailing platform for Marine Conservation. We designed a youth program to help at-risk kids the opportunity to learn and crew aboard a sailboat. The planned itinerary option allows people the opportunity to book a cabin, meet new people, and participate in sailing Songbird. Finally, we can also customize a complete private charter luxury experience.
No sailing experience is necessary to sail on Songbird. Onboard there is always experienced crew and Captain.
Look forward to sailing together,
Andy was born in Glasgow. He was introduced to sailing on the River Clyde. Andy started his professional sailing career on the bow of a Volvo 60 and has been sailing commercially for over 20 years. He spent most of his career skippering racing yachts, competing in various races, including multiple Rolex Fastnet campaigns, Atlantic races, and various other offshore and inshore races. When not racing, Andy spent time cruising around the North Atlantic as well as two years skippering a privately owned IY60 around the Caribbean and the USA. In recent years as an RYA instructor, Andy enjoys sharing his passion for sailing and adventure to his students. He is looking forward to visiting more amazing destinations, meeting new people, and meeting the new challenge of online instruction and coaching.
Andy runs a sailing school, a luxury yacht, and an expedition type of sailing experience. These avenues provide new and creative ways to bring individuals with diverse backgrounds and interest into the love of sailing.
