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.

Sail or Chill on a Classic Yacht in Barcelona

It was a fab afternoon out with skipper Dave, who let the two of us help sail when we wanted, taught us a bit, and then we chatted and chilled when we wanted. And the yacht is classic old school! And at a fair price as well, esp. if we had more people. Just do it ...

Afternoon Sailing Trip

I was with a group of four guys in their late 20's and we had a great time. The entire trip is exactly as advertised.

Exiciting...and calm! Awesome sailing trip!

We had booked with Dave for 4 adults and 1 child on a Friday afternoon. However, once we took off into our sailing trip, the waves were crazy! The boat was at 45 degrees most of the time. My 7 year old and I enjoyed it very much, but the wife and auntie were hanging on for their lives! Well, after almost an hour of this excitement, Skipper Dave called it off and we headed to port. A man of his words, he'd volunteered to refund most of our trip due to weather, but we opted to reschedule. So, again, we went on Monday morning. Calm sea and beautiful weather. This time it was a very smooth ride. We stopped for a few an took a dip in the clear cobalt blue sea. A very relaxing trip. Anyways, bring your own food and water. Enjoy the view and relax...But I have to say, I loved battling the waves!!!

A perfect way to spend the evening

I booked Classic Sail as a gift for my friends on our last night together in Barcelona. The booking was easy, communication thorough, and it was easy to find the boat. Dave got us out away from some of the noisier groups so we could enjoy a dip in the Mediterranean during the sunset. He was available but unobtrusive, and seems to be a great captain and lovely person. Six thumbs up!
