Dunbar Yachts

Beautiful beaches and sunny days make for a perfect vacation destination. The Golden Isles of Georgia are made up of four different barrier islands, with St. Simons Island being the largest. With the beautiful coastlines of the Golden Isles beckoning, you will surely want to explore them all. And what better way than to explore than from a well-equipped yacht? These moments on the open ocean will give you memories to last a lifetime.

Boat Charters and Sailing Classes

Enjoy the picturesque coastlines aboard a Catalina Yacht with a sailing charter from Dunbar Yachts. Beginners will enjoy learning a bit about sailing, and this is a perfect test run to see if you’d like to take further sailing classes. Experienced sailors will enjoy the top-notch quality of the Catalina, with its full galley and comfortable cockpit. A day aboard a boat with the wind in your hair and salt water in the air is a perfect way to spend quality time with family and friends.

For those who want to continue to grow their knowledge and love of sailing, Dunbar Yachts offers ASA certified Basic Sailing and Coastal Cruising certification courses. The boat on the open ocean will be your classroom, with instruction occurring onboard new and fully-equipped Catalina Yachts. You will be in good hands with Coast Guard licensed captains who are fully ASA certified. As a beginning sailor, you will learn how to prepare the boat for sailing, tacking and gybing, sailing on all points of sail, and boat safety.

If you already have some sailing experience and you want to further your knowledge while enjoying the stunning shoreline, a Coastal Cruising class may be a perfect fit. Hone your skills by reading charts, navigating offshore, docking, anchoring, piloting, using the latest marine electronics, and building your confidence to cruise. Completion of this course qualifies you for ASA Coastal Cruising certification.
