If relaxing is a more appealing hobby, kick up your feet on deck beneath the shade and enjoy a good read with a scenic backdrop of islands, ocean, and memorable picturesque skies.

Our Services

Let us know what you would like out of your adventure with us and we will try to accommodate you to the best of our abilities.

We accommodate longer charters that can range from a couple days to 2 weeks, If you choose to join us for a longer charter that remains within a country, it would include island hopping and/or sailing coasts with us and learning how to sail as we go. The other type of lengthier charter would have you partake in longer, ocean fairing legs of our world voyage, from one country Islands of Fiji.

We also run day charters, normally where ever we are at the time. If you join us for a day charter at an atoll, it would normally include a trip around the atoll or within the lagoon. We may stop at a Motu (islet) and enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer through swimming, snorkeling, diving and exploring.
Visiting local villages is also a great option. Each charter is a unique experience and we aim to please our guests while also providing them with the opportunities to be fully enveloped in the local culture and what that place has to offer.

Islands offer their own unique charters. Enjoy a trip around the island of our anchorage on the Sjostrom. Each island shares with us their own individual adventures. With each island comes different coral reefs, varying tropical fishes, and even the islands landscapes.

We've harbored all across the Pacific; from Hawaii to New Zealand, Fanning, Nuie, Penrhyn and Fiji as well as many more beautiful places only truly reached by boat.  For more information, please contact us. 

What To Expect Onboard:

The Sjostrom's story begins with two brothers and one dream. They dreamt to sail the world comfortably and safely.

Utilizing some modern conveniences not typically seen on a traditional rigged schooner, she is poised to tackle the worlds ocean in style.

At 96ft feet Length Over All, this gaff-riged schooner is one of the largest boats to be built in the San Francisco Bay Area in recent years. This masterpiece measures 80 feet on deck and 96 feet over all, with a 22 foot beam. Displacement is about 100 tons.

Cold-molded from Douglas fir, the hull is 5 1/2 inches thick, and the transom 6 inchess thick. A 1/4 inch layer of fiberglass sheaths the entire exterior. Sjostrom's foremast is 68ft tall, her mainmast, including the topmast, measures 92ft tall and her main boom is 32ft long. Yeah, this is one big boat!

The Captain and his brother, wanted the seaworthiness of a Colin Archer design without the signature canoe stern. They settled on the Bud McIntosh Appledore II design.
