WHERE HAS SALAMANDER OF LYMINGTON BEEN ?
Salamander safely crossed the greatest oceans in the world, including the Atlantic on six occasions and the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Salamander visited the continents of Europe, North and South America, Oceania, Australasia and Africa.
Whilst having a coffee in a cafe in St. Helena, in the South Atlantic, enjoying a break on passage from South Africa to Brazil, we saw two earlier entries for Salamander, entered by her first owner, confirming our suspicion that Salamander was a very capable and well-travelled yacht.
Prior to setting off on our circumnavigation Salamander was extensively refitted for us with new rigging, sails, teak decks, the latest modern equipment and electronics. Since then she has been further enhanced and cared for to maintain the highest standards.
Salamander splits her time between the UK for the Summer Season and the Caribbean for the winter where she is also available for those typical warm water blue skies Caribbean Sailing Holidays.
Salamander usually departs Lymington for the Canaries in October and crosses the Atlantic with the ARC in November returning to Lymington in May / June each year.

Salamander is described as a motor-sailor, enjoying a 135 HP 6 cylinder diesel engine, enabling her to cruise, whether under sail or engine, at the same speed. Huge diesel tankage gives a comfortable range well in excess of 1,500 nm under motor alone.
Salamander benefits from 1,800 litres of fresh water, and is equipped with a water-maker as well, producing upto 170 litres of fresh water an hour, if required in addition to the fresh water in the tanks.

TESTIMONIAL - WHAT DO THE SALAMANDER SAILING ADVENTURE GUESTS SAY ?
We spent a fantastic day sailing on Salamander. This beautiful boat has sailed around the world and our day out gave us a great opportunity to try sailing under the great care of its skipper, Chris and Sue and Julian. Their expertise shows. They are very professional and great company.
Seeing the world from a boat is such a great experience. We all felt as if we had been away for a weekend’s adventure, best of all the experience is long lasting and still puts a smile on our faces. Couldn’t fault anything. Can’t wait to do it again!”
