The New OTBT Yacht
Welcome aboard our 68 ft Classic Schooner, ‘Louise’ - she’s one of a kind!
A new chapter for OTBT
For the past 6 years Off The Beaten Tack have leased ‘plastic fantastic’ Yachts for each season. For the 2020 season we are so exited that have bought our own ‘modern classic’ yacht. She is a real head turner and the only one of its kind in the world. With teak decks, a wooden hull, twin masts and all mod cons, she is the epitome of sailing class.
Having completed sea trials off the coast of Mallorca we are preparing her for her maiden year as the official Off The Beaten Tack Flag Ship.
Louise is perfectly set up to accommodate 4 guests in two large en-suite cabins. She has huge decks to relax on, a comfortable cockpit area and down below a large galley and saloon area that can also convert as a berth, so that parties of up to 5 friends or family can be accommodated. Louise has a separate crew cabin for the skipper and first mate at the bow of the boat.
Prices start from €2,500 per week for a double cabin.
The All New Off The Beaten Tack Yacht
When you holiday with Off The Beaten Tack you can choose to do as little or as much as you like. You can learn to sail alongside of RYA Yachtmaster Skipper or lay back on deck and soak in the experience. This is your escape and you decide.
Unwind & Relax
Louise is currently being prepared for the 2020 season. We look forward to sharing lot’s more photos and videos of her in the very near future.

Sailing routes and bases.
For most of the 2020 Cyclades season we will be starting and finishing our trips in the wonderful island of Naxos, the largest most fertile island in the Cyclades with the highest peaks to climb, the 2nd best rated beaches in Greece and small inland villages full of original charm. Naxos is a short 1 hour Ferry trip from Mykonos and Santorini (both of which have international airports), or a 3 hour Ferry from Athens. Every week is different and the scope very wide. We sail with the winds and we will try visit some of the following islands - Paros, Ios , Koufonisia, Amorgos, Sikinos, Syros, Rhinia, Dhenoussa, Schinoussa, Iraklia, Serifos , Milos and Folegandros.
During mid summer the wind in the Cyclades can be quite strong for guests not used to sailing, so from 18th July through until 12th September we will be operating from the Sporades Islands (probably best known in modern times as the setting for the Mama Mia films). We will sail from Skiathos and will aim to visit the islands of Skopelos, and Alonnisos, Peristera, Panagia, or Gioura, plus a choice from a dozen other small uncommercialised islands during our voyage. Skiathos has it’s own airport accepting international flights, or you can fly from Athens (45 minutes).
All voyages are from 3.00pm Saturday to 10.00am Friday with 6 nights sleeping on board.
