Sailing in yachts certainly has a rustic, traditional feel that separates it from modern motor yachts, but most sailing yachts are built with modern materials, with the latest technology. While this makes perfect sense, with modern sailing yachts being lighter, sturdier and faster than an old-fashioned sail boat, there’s something lost in the art of sailing when an on-board computer does everything for you.

The Queen of Datca is the answer. It’s a rugged, well-built yet luxurious yacht with an old-fashioned, tried and tested design that makes it stand out in a sea of carbon fibre and fibreglass speed machines. The Queen of Datca can host 10 guests in 5 cabins, with 2 master suites, 2 twin cabins, a convertible cabin and a double cabin. The first thing you’ll notice in these rooms is all the wood furnishings that adorn it. It certainly sets a mood and atmosphere of refined and subtle luxury. These rooms are fully furnished with the usual amenities: toilets, showers and king/queen sized beds.

The ship has ample facilities for diving, sunbathing, paddle boarding and kayaking. The Queen of Datca has been built to accommodate water sports especially, with facilities for jet skiing, kayaking, wakeboarding, water skiing and snorkelling. On top of that, there’s Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, games consoles and air conditioning for those that just want to unwind.

The Queen of Datca operates mainly in the Mediterranean Sea, both in summer and winter, and it’s available for between 24000 and 36000 Euros a week, plus expenses. The Queen of Datca represents the pinnacle of traditional construction methods and aesthetics.
