Siriana - Lymington, Hampshire

Nimbus 340 Commander

The Nimbus 340 Commander is available on FlexiSail's Motor Cruiser membership and corporate membership scheme, a fantastic alternative to chartering. Our FlexiAnytime membership shares the time on a motor yacht between a small number of members (1 owner plus a maximum of 6 members). This gives each member the equivalent to 6 weeks or 42 days per year sailing, which is more than enough for most of us! We offer 2 alternative schemes for further flexibility - our long weekend orientated ‘FlexiWeekender' membership and our ‘FlexiMidweeker' membership for midweek sailing; If you have previously chartered do you remember the anxiety beforehand not knowing quite what to expect on arrival and therefore what you need to bring with you? With FlexiSail you are a member on the one boat – one you are totally comfortable and familiar with and which is fully kitted out with everything that you will need right down to a corkscrew! FlexiSail is in fact the closest you can get to owning a boat. You know exactly what to bring each time (just your wet weather gear, food and drink, and bedding if overnighting), and you are safe in the knowledge that the boat will be clean, welcoming and ready to enjoy. Siriana has a low centre of gravity and large flybridge you can cruise in comfort, enjoying the power knowing that every safety aspect has been considered. Siriana’s specification includes a bow and stern thruster, heating and demisting, radar. She cruises at 16 knots with a top speed of 22 knots. Coded for 8 category 2 (60 miles offshore), Siriana sleeps 6 in a large master double cabin, aft double cabin and a double saloon conversion Contact details info@flexisail.com +44(0) 1590 688008 http://www.flexisail.com
