    Overview

    Stay on a boat in Cowes, United Kingdom.

    Casuella is a classic 28 ft Peter Duck built in 1964 and
    designed by Laurent Giles. The Peter Duck class evolved from an original yacht ( called "Peter Duck" ) which was built for Arthur Ransome, the author of 'Swallows & Amazons !

    Layout

    Casuella 's cockpit is large enough to seat 6 people . Below decks (down three steps with hand rails ) and on entering the saloon there is 6ft 4" of head room. The chart table is on the port hand side with the galley on the starboard side. The Galley has a sink with a foot operated pump with storage space behind. The open plan saloon is cosy but roomy with a central table for dining. The seating either side of the table can double up as two single bunks suitable for children from around 5 years to 14 years old or so . There is storage space behind for the, The bar, books, CD player etc. Further forward the Heads with pump action loo is on the starboard side with a storage locker / room on the port side for hanging clothes. Forward of this is the main cabin which can be used as a large double or two single bunks. The cleverly designed doors fold three ways to give privacy as required in the heads, the cabin or the saloon. The interior is in keeping with the age of the yacht with varnished wood giving much character.

    Onboard

    There is a kettle and toaster on board for guests to make themselves a continental style breakfast. Tea, coffee , fresh milk and bread are included .A microwave is also on board for guests to use. One double duvet, two sleeping bags , pillows, sheets & towels and extra blankets are provided .There is an efficient electric blow heater if needed .Also a CD/ radio player for guests to use.

    Onsite

    Casuella is berthed alongside the pontoon in Odessa Marine, at the top of the Medina River in the heart of Newport .When booked We move Casuella down river to Cowes, the International Heart of Sailing in the UK. Here there are several marinas but our usual home in Cowes is at The Folly Inn . Guests have use of the well-equipped showers and facilities and the Pub does a great breakfast , lunch , & evening meal . The Folly has its own water taxi service for transport to the centre of West Cowes . There are also other water taxi services around including Sally taxi on 07831331717.

    The Area

    Please contact us to discuss where on the Medina River / in Cowes you would like to stay on board Casuella. Shepards Wharf Marina and Cowes Yacht Haven are just two of the central marinas in West Cowes where we can berth Casuella . Cowes has many independent shops, yacht clubs, Pubs and the famous parade for watching the sailing / racing with the Royal Yacht Squadron at the entrance to the harbour.Cowes also has a great choice of restaurants too numerous to list here!

    What's special about this boat

    Casuella is a beamy comfortable wooden yacht with plenty of character .Considering her length (28 ft) Her well designed interior makes her easy to live aboard . The cock pit seats six or more and this makes a great platform for entertaining in any setting !Although ideally suited for accommodating two adults Casuella does have two cosy bunks along side the central table where children can sleep. So although listed as accommodating two Casuella is available for a family of four !

    Cowes Week and Casuella

    Aug. 7, 2017

    We have just returned from a wonderful weekend on the little sail boat Casuella moored in Folly Marina. Although the accommodation being a sail boat was a little cramped we slept well and met many friendly and and interesting people (a well known authoress, a contestant from Acapella in the fastnet race, a legal family with an endless store of stories and great sense of humour and a couple just having bought their first boat). Our hosts Caroline and Patrick could not have taken more trouble to make our stay enjoyable from advice on the Folly water bus to Cowes town quay to croissants for breakfast and an honesty bar on board. Saturday night was a beautiful evening for sitting on deck with a drink after an excursion to Cowes on the Folly water bus. Thank you Caroline and Patrick.
