HUGE news in the sailing world! In the past decade Nautilus Sailing, an American Sailing Association school, has been one of the fastest growing sailing schools in the ASA’s worldwide network of over 350 schools. Dream Yacht Charter is the largest charter company in the world (now twice the size of Moorings and Sunsail!) with over 1200 sailboats in 55 destinations around the world. Well, this summer Nautilus and DYC entered into a strategic partnership, which is VERY exciting, and has big implications…
Since its inception, Nautilus Sailing has worked hard to create the ultimate, week long live aboard sailing courses. The traditional way of learning how to sail, where one would attend a school on the coast, clocking in week after week, starting with sailing small dinghies and working your way up slowly to larger vessels, just didn’t work for most people. Who has this kind of time?! With busy lives and schedules, people want to make the most of their limited vacation time and have memorable adventures and experiences. Nautilus filled a serious void by developing intensive week long live aboard courses, in exotic destinations around the world, where students get a real experience of the cruising lifestyle.
Dream Yacht Charter was founded by Loic Bonnet, with the vision of expanding and offering sailing charters in destinations the current charter industry did not service. They now have more than double the destinations offered by their competitors! What also sets DYC apart is their commitment to using newer sailboats, from the leading sailboat manufacturers in the world including Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot, Bali, Beneteau, Jeanneau, and Dufour.
Loic Bonnet says “This partnership with Nautilus is another step towards bringing the experience of boating to all and means customers will have more control on their learn to sail adventure. Dream Yacht Charter offers the best boats in the best locations. Nautilus Sailing have the best instructors, offering the most thorough sailing courses.”
Nautilus Sailing and Dream Yacht Charters are poised to help change the face of sailing education. With this new partnership, Nautilus will continue to offer their award winning live aboard courses, but now has so many more options for students. Nautilus can offer private and custom live aboard courses on the DYC boat of choice (whether monohull or catamaran!) in any of their 55 destinations worldwide. Nautilus Sailing then flies one of our top rated American Sailing Association instructors to the area for the course, organize everything, and are waiting for students arrival. Want to learn to sail in the Seychelles? Croatia? Thailand? Tahiti? Done! The options and possibilities are astounding…
For previous Nautilus Sailing alumni and future students, there is a huge advantage to this partnership. All Nautilus students receive discounts off their charters, help purchasing new and used boats, and access to Dream Yacht Charter’s brand new Sabbatical program. Lots of exciting things in the works!
