SALAMANDER OF LYMINGTON
with The Salamander Sailing Adventure
Some ideas to Celebrate a Special Birthday, Weddings, Honeymoons, Anniversaries, Reunions
Celebrate birthdays in style on board an ocean-going yacht designed by Sparkman and Stephens, the designers of glorious America’s Cup yachts. Salamander is a traditionally designed yacht with spacious teak-lined saloons and extensive teak decks with a solid teak handrail all around, suitable for parties for up to 12 guests.
There are many destinations in the Solent to celebrate a birthday including historic Buckler’s Hard in Beaulieu, the world famous Needles, as well as Yarmouth and Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
Destinations further afield include Southampton, Portsmouth Harbour and the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Poole, Studland Bay and Old Harry Rocks.
Guests can choose to have a go helming Salamander themselves under the watchful eye of your round the world skipper, or guests can simply sit back and relax while your crew look after you.
Guests can dine on board or arrangements can be made to sail to a destination hotel or restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Birthday cakes can be arranged.
Nautical wedding transport for bride and groom. What better way to arrive or depart than by luxury yacht? We can’t of course sail Salamander to every hotel, so speak to us to discuss where suitable wedding transfers can be made!
As guests travel from further afield and weddings parties spread over a number of days, Salamander can provide unique and varied entertainment for your wedding guests. We can arrange unforgettable short Boat Trips, Sailing Experiences and Pontoon Receptions on board Salamander to entertain wedding guests during their stay with you.
Have you considered arriving at your wedding by helicopter and departing by yacht?
Want to get away from it all and celebrate in style? There is no better way to go on a honeymoon than to charter your own luxury sailing yacht.
The skipper, crewperson and a dedicated steward will look after you throughout your special honeymoon on board Salamander. Simply discuss with your skipper where you would like to go. A quiet anchorage or a picturesque town? Meal on board Salamander or meal ashore? It’s up to you. It’s your unique honeymoon.
We can arrange direct luxurious transfers from your hotel to your honeymoon yacht.
For special anniversaries Salamander is an ideal sailing yacht providing a warm and intimate interior, with great all round visibility where guests can sit comfortably inside should the weather be grey or wet outside.
Guests can dine on board or arrangements can be made to sail to a destination hotel for lunch or dinner.
At all times the Salamander crew will look after you whilst you enjoy your anniversary.
What better way to spend time with friends you haven’t seen for a while? You won’t have to lift a finger, unless you want to of course.
Let the Salamander crew greet you on board with a welcoming glass of champagne. You can choose half a day or a full-day on board Salamander.
We will look after you and at the same time leave you alone to catch up with your intimate reunion. Salamander is an ideal size for up to 12 friends.
Salamander of Lymington - your luxury 58 foot sailing yacht for the day
You will spend the day on board the luxurious 58 foot ocean-going sailing yacht Salamander of Lymington, which has successfully circumnavigated the world with the current skipper. Salamander is heated and perfectly suited for year round use, both sailing and cruising under motor. You can sit back and luxuriate in the warmth of the teak pilot house saloon with great wrap round windows for excellent all round spectating, should the weather be not so great.
The Georgian Town of Lymington from onboard Salamander
Lymington, where Salamander is normally based, is well worth a visit on foot, a charming Georgian town with cobbled streets, with many hotels, banks, pubs, restaurants and independent shops, lying between the New Forest and the Solent, the most famous stretch of sheltered water in the world of sailing, the venue of so many world class events, and just around the corner from the Beaulieu River, Cowes, Yarmouth, The National Trust Reserve at Newtown River, Portsmouth, Southampton, Poole, Studland Bay, Old Harry Rocks and last but not least the world famous and iconic Needles on the Isle of Wight.

TESTIMONIAL - WHAT DO THE SALAMANDER SAILING ADVENTURE GUESTS SAY ?
"Amazing birthday celebration on The Salamander Sailing Adventure with family and friends"
"My wife bought me this sailing trip as a birthday gift and we took along friends and family for a days sailing on the Solent and were absolutely delighted with the whole experience.
The crew (and boat owners) Chris, Sue, Hilary and Jules made our day with first class attention to safety and hospitality on their yacht and we couldn't fault the day sailing the Solent and absorbing the wonderful sights, we all hope to do it again soon!"
CK - TripAdvisor Review
"Beautiful trip up Beaulieu River with lunch at the Master Builder for my husband's birthday. Our party included our 18 month old grandson who was welcomed aboard and we all had a great time. The hosts were excellent and nothing was too much trouble.
The highlight for us was the provision of a surprise and superb dairy free birthday cake with champagne. Would strongly recommend.
A big thank you to Chris and Sue!"
Jeremy D -TripAdvisor Review
"Surprise 60th birthday treat with family members. Chris and Sue provided a memorable day, nothing too much trouble and great service and company provided in an informal manner. Sailed up to Bucklers Hard, stop off for booked lunch and then back to Lymington. Party of 12 and room below and on deck not any problem. If I had time/money I would love to do some of their exotic packages, one in Caribbean would be great! Fabulous day."
James G - TripAdvisor Review
"A large group of us went for my mom's 60th. Great day out and service was excellent. The team kept us fed and watered throughout and felt like additions to the party. Would definitely recommend."
