Book a trip on Samba, our Archambault Grand Surprise regatta sailboat

Our first sailboat is called Samba, we bought her in Spain in 2010, and she has sailed with over 3000 happy costumers in front of the Barcelona coast line.

In 2016 we decided to place an environmental friendly electric engine in Samba, making her the first commercial sailboat in Barcelona that is electrically driven. Samba will be solar powered, no more noise, no smell and super for the environment. Pure relaxation.

Sail boat from side view

Samba has raced in the northern Spain for two years. Won several regattas and then was put on the land by her previous owner. Samba is a regatta sailboat, 9.54 meter long and 2,92 meter wide at the beam. Sailing her is very easy, she responds very fast on movements and is joy to sail.

Samba is well suited to sail along the coast of Barcelona because she needs little wind. In the summer there is often little wind and when others turn on the engine we still enjoy a great sail.

Highly recommended experience

Highly recommended activity in Barcelona! It was amazing to enjoy the sailing, sun, sea while chilling on the deck of the classic yacht and chatting with friends, enjoying drinks and even jumping for a swim.

Barcelona by full moon

Last night a friend and I went sailing from Barcelona Marina in a beautiful old wooden sailing boat 'Gemini', with her gregarious and knowledgeable captain, Dave. Clear skies and a full moon, the light breeze filling the sails, pushing us through the calm water, it was a perfect evening jaunt, admiring the magical vistas of night time Barcelona. Definitely something to be considered on a trip to Barcelona. It got a little chilly towards the end of the evening so take a sweater or a fleece.

Only good things to say.....

We went out with a large group - ages 12 - 78 - and Dave made everyone feel comfortable. He is amazingly calm and kind and accommodating - and clearly a skilled sailor! We needed to change our day and time numerous times and he was flexible and understanding. The views from the water were beautiful. It was an adventure. We highly recommend sailing with Dave.

Coolest boat I have ever been on

A must do for anyone who enjoys the water. Very knowledgable and laid back captain on a stellar sailboat. You will not be disappointed.

Favorite thing I did in Barcelona

My Birthday wouldn't have been as special if not for this wonderful sail with David. The boat is so charming and beautiful. David is great, you can tell he loves what he does. Highly recommended. Thank you David for making my Birthday one of my most memorable.

Great way to relax between tourist activities in Barcelona

We enjoyed a delightful sail. Beautiful weather and Dave's cordiality made it even better. The sail was a great hiatus from the rush of the running around the tourist sites of the city.
