Welcome aboard

Your own private sailing yacht

Yacht Songbird is a classically designed sailing yacht which was built in Germany to an exceptionally high standard and has recently undergone extensive interior redecoration. Songbird can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests across 3 well-equipped staterooms; one master king and two twin-bed staterooms each with a Pullman berth for extra space when required. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms.

A spacious indoor saloon area offers with plenty of space to relax in peace, watch movies or read. From our fully equipped galley kitchen, our chef will prepare delicious food and drinks using fresh, local ingredients. For further comfort, air conditioning is available throughout the yacht.

Little Luxuries

Every effort has been made to ensure your complete relaxation and comfort on board. Little luxuries to make you instantly feel at home include; super-soft towels and crisp-white bed linens from The White Company, London, and beautifully scented, all-natural shower and body products from Bramley, England. Turkish Hammam cotton towels are provided for you on deck so you can lighten the load when packing.

Up on deck

The stunning exterior of the boat has a beautiful teak deck which is ideal for morning yoga, soaking up the sun or dozing under the shade of the sail. There’s a large swimming platform at the stern for water-based activities which includes; stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), kayaking and snorkelling. A relaxing central seating area offers a very comfortable and shaded spot for taking meals, discussing the day’s agenda and for admiring the breathtaking views when we are under sail.

With so much space on board, you’ll quickly find your favourite place to chill.

Yacht Songbird in Sicily

Delicious food & drink onboard, and ashore

Delicious delights are served on board using the best quality, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients. Our chef creates dishes that are mostly based around the Mediterranean Diet and a detailed pre-charter briefing allows us to ensure we get things spot on for you. If there’s something you can’t live without we will be sure to get it on board for your stay.

DF, GF, VG, V, NF and allergies all catered for.  

It’s not what you know…

Forget Tripadvisor. When it comes to dining ashore our knowledgeable and well-connected crew will advise you of the best restaurants to suit your tastes and requirements; be it a lesser-known, casual, local’s favourite, the most popular place in town or a quiet beachside spot.

 

We will take you from boat to table and let you revel in some incredible dining experiences.

Ultimate tranquillity

Spending the night at anchor. For when you’ve been exploring ashore all day and fancy a quiet evening enjoying the comfort of the yacht we will drop anchor in a beautiful location and prepare something for supper under the stars. Perhaps there’s a special occasion to be celebrated, in which case we can organise for a local guest-chef to join the boat and cook up some local gourmet delights you for an unforgettable evening.

Bottoms up!

Fancy a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa with your brunch? You got it! We are fully stocked; from aromatic coffees, an array of teas, juices, beers, wines, to spirits, mixers and our signature Songbird cocktails. If you want to shake your stuff like Tom Cruise in Cocktail and be your own mixologist, please be our guest.

 

Croatia and Montenegro have some truly spectacular wines and we would love to introduce you to them – before the secret is out. We have teamed up with vineyards all over the region, most of which are family owned and operated, and we would be delighted to organise tours and tastings that will leave you wanting to ship a few crates of your new favourite tipple back home!

Given a little time and a few phone calls, everything is possible, so set your imagination free and we will do the rest.

Your crew on board yacht songbird

Andy Kinnard, The Captain 

British

An experienced and accomplished sailor with a healthy appetite for fun and adventure! Andy was first introduced to sailing on the River Clyde in Scotland at a young age and then started his professional sailing career on the bow of a Volvo 60. Andy has been sailing commercially and competitively for over 20 years, skippering yachts in various races including multiple Rolex Fastnet campaigns. He has spent time cruising the North Atlantic and skippering a privately owned yacht around the Caribbean and North America. In 2010 Andy became an RYA Yachtmaster & Sea Survival Instructor and has shared his passion for sailing and safety at sea with over 200 students so far. Having enjoyed sailing around the Adriatic for a few years, he is excited to spend more time in this beautiful location with Yacht Songbird, exploring new areas and introducing his favourite places to Songbird’s guests.

When he’s not sailing, Andy can be found studying traditional forms of navigation, flying, horse riding and spending time with his children.

 

Marko Foskulo, First Mate

Croatian

Born in the Dubrovnik region of Croatia into a family of hardworking and passionate seafarers, sailing is in Marko’s blood and he knows the waters and islands around the Croatian coast like the back of his hand.  Aged just 15 Marko got his boat licence and took part in numerous regattas on the Adriatic, and from this moment forward sailing became his calling. He is a very competent and experienced sailor, skippering professionally for the last 8 years on charters in both Croatia and the Caribbean. Marko loves long passage sailing, which has taken him across the Atlantic 3 times.

Aside from sending his time on a sailboat, Marko’s hobbies include windsurfing, fishing, snowboarding and travelling.

 

 

Sarah Weare, Chef

British

A natural born host with food never far from her mind, Sarah is always thinking about the next meal. Sarah started out cooking at her family’s busy pub in the Oxfordshire countryside and soon ventured into catering for local events & parties. She decided to follow a career in brand marketing which led to her to New York and qualifying as a yoga teacher, but ultimately the call for gastronomic travel adventures became too great. Sarah now spends her time working in travel marketing, exploring new places and loves discovering local cuisines. She also cooks for events at private villas, retreats and of course at sea, along the way. She mixes her passion for nutrition to prepare seasonal, healthy dishes using local ingredients with a passion for the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. 

When she’s not sailing or cooking Sarah will be found exploring and photographing new pastures or food. On board Songbird, she may also take a morning yoga class for those guests who would like to rise early and salute the sun!
