Day 1

We suggest day one you take the same passage as detailed in our full day charter to Dartmouth and River Dart, all catering and drinks will be as described above in the full-day charter.

For overnight accommodation you will be moored in motor-yacht Oyster’s resident birth in Torquay Town Dock (marina) where you will have access to onshore loo’s and showers. When motor-yacht Oyster is moored and connected into mains electric, this is your accommodation for the rest of the day and evening, towels and fresh bed lining are all supplied. You will need to arrange your own evening meal and following breakfast on board or ashore, a list of recommended restaurants and phone numbers is available here.

After mooring yacht Oyster at the marina/dock and securing it to services, the crew will depart for the rest of the day/evening allowing you and your guests to have the privacy of your own vessel through to the agreed time the crew return the next morning (usually 10am) for your next day’s charter.

Instead of mooring in Torquay overnight that is included in your charter fee, you may wish to stay either in Kingswear Marina opposite Dartmouth or in Brixham MDL Marina. For this you will need to check availability in advance and there will be an additional charge, circa £40-£55 per night, for additional marina charges. Both these marinas have excellent onshore facilities and are close to many good bars and restaurants. The crew will also connect you to mains electric and secure Oyster for the night, before leaving you to enjoy your own privacy prior to returning the next morning.
