Some kind words from previous customers…

Ahh it was magical.…

Ahh it was magical a great four days spent with my brother and friend celebrating a big birthday. Right from the start it was good and lovely to meet Tony the skipper who was informative and friendly. He has great patience and genuinely complimentary when you you complete a task on board. We ate, drank, soaked up sun on deck, laughed and throughly enjoyed our trip. I honestly would recommend this to anyone. The scenery is exceptional, the wild life is exceptional and Nebraska is exceptional. The boat can hold four guests and Tony the skipper, though we went as a three there was plenty of room for us and our gear, and there will never be three bigger boys on board. Tony is very knowledgable and sends you out a list of things you are wise to bring. He also helps in any way to make your trip an experience of a life time. You can get as involved with the sailing or just sit back and enjoy the ride, I think also Tony picks up what you are comfortable doing. We never felt pushed or under pressure. I hope the photographs help people see what an experience it can be. I have folk coming up to me in the street asking about it as the photos were so good. Don't put it off book today!

Brilliant Weekend sailing with friends…

Firstly the views of the north coast were breathtaking on our trip, many times we've driven the coast road but you cannot appreciate the true beauty of the coastline around the area until onboard Nebraska.

We had great fun onboard and really enjoyed the 'craic' with the crew members on our overnight stay in Rathlin. Once we had departed Ballycastle Harbour we made a smooth sailing across to Rathlin Island and arrived in time to relax on deck with a glass of wine while enjoying a beautiful sunset. Perfect!

After exploring some of what the island had to offer (and a quick drink in the pub with the friendly
locals) we returned to find the crew had prepared a beautiful meal which we enjoyed below deck in the dining area.

Overall Facilities on board are second to none! I was surprised at the amount of space and of the level of style and decorative order below deck, kingside beds and flat screen TVs were not what I had anticipated.

Lastly Special mention goes to Skipper Tony, he was brilliant throughout our trip. Both he and his crew were very informative and provided great insight into Sailing for our party of complete beginners. They frequently encouraged those of us who were interested to get involved and taught us the basics
of sailing.

All in all we had a great weekend and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of a trip with a difference. Couldn't fault it and will definitely be booking again perhaps to somewhere further
afield next time.

From Ballycastle to Portpatrick, fantastic experience!…

As a first time 'sailor' I found the Nebraska a very comfortable vessel. Surprisingly spacious below deck, fully equipped with all needs catered for. The Skipper is accomplished and very capable, I felt very safe at all times, not being used to being on a yacht. I would highly recommend a trip on the Nebraska, I had an amazing time!

Nebraska! Your home at sea.…

I've had the pleasure of sailing on Nebraska quite a few times now, and what can i say? Excelent! from the moment you step aboard you feel at home (albeit a much nicer home than mine). Tony the skipper instantly makes you feel welcome and safe in his wealth of sailing knowledge, this is the perfect sailing experience for the novice or experienced sailor whether it be for an afternoon or a week sailing through the highlands of Scotland you will come away with a wonderful experience and memories to last a lifetime. Trip advisor ask you for your highlights in a review, but honestly it was all great, even a bit of rain can't spoil the fun. I almost want to be selfish here and tell you not to go, so I can go again but,,,, it may seam a little gushy but since our first trip together one of the other crew has gone on to achieve his day skipper and i have sailed across the ocean on a tall ship. But Nebraska will always be our first home at sea. Look in the dictionary under excellence and there will be a picture of the skipper standing at the helm.

A great sailing trip!…

Had a brilliant time on Nebraska recently. A Very experienced Skipper, who is passionate about sailing, made sure that everyone on board was made to feel special, ensuring a great time for us all.

Enjoyed the mix, with everyone involved, where there was some cooking, eating and a glass or two of wine on board as well as eating out at some great restaurants in the evenings. Each marina we moored at had great facilities. The trip was very well organised and everyone felt very safe.

Nebraska is a beautiful yacht. Spacious and finished to a very high standard. Loved it!

Can't wait for my next trip.

Fantastic trip, stunning scenary…

I've been fortunate enough to have been on Nebraska a few times now, as a novice sailor Tony puts you at ease with his wealth of experience and lets you be as hands on as you like. The scenery along the North coast is truly exceptional with Nebraska providing the ultimate views, it's great seeing Giant's Causeway from a different perspective! I can't recommend this trip highly enough, my next adventure is already booked!

First class sailing experience!…

I have had the privilege of sailing with Tony a number of times and can honestly say that the whole experience is second to none! Tony's knowledge and experience is outstanding and he is always willing to share this with others. Nebraska is like a home away from home, where everybody is made to feel welcome and Tony is an amazing host. If I could, I would certainly sail on Nebraska more frequently, and with Tony at the helm I feel fully confident that I am in safe hands. His planning and organisational skills ensure that each trip is enjoyable, with lots of sailing, scenery and good ol' fun too! I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every sailing trip with Tony and crew on Nebraska.

Amazing time! Stunning scenery! Loved every minute!…

As a 1st time sailor, I was unsure of what to expect. All I can say if you are thinking of booking is .... do it! Now! Before I get in and book up all next summer! Tony is a very experienced and genial host - he puts you at ease and lets you get stuck in as little or as much as you want. The Nebraska is a stunning 44ft yacht - if I had a lottery win, I would seriously consider getting something like it!

We were very lucky with the weather. Had calm seas and sunny days on our trip from Ballycastle to Jura to Ardfern to Gigha and back to Ballycastle. The views are quite simply stunning. Lovely little villages with great pubs and restaurants (The Boat House on Gigha is a must!).

I really cannot recommend this trip enough. It will 100% be an annual trip for me from now on!

Outstanding trip, spectacular scenery, great food & drink!…

My friends and I had the most amazing holiday on Nebraska this past summer. Everything was spot on; experienced skipper, immaculate & well equipped yacht, amazing scenery & villages, great food & drink both onboard and at local restaurants & pubs. We're already planning our return next year!

Fantastic experience…

I had the pleasure of sailing onboard Nebraska on Sunday from Portrush to Ballycastle. As this was my first time sailing I was a little nervous though there was no need to worry as skipper Tony quickly put me at ease carefully explaining everything including what to expect. We had a brilliant time with Tony who is very experienced and passionate about sailing and happy to share his knowledge. Nebraska is a beautiful yacht, spotlessly clean throughout with very spacious living area inside. The views of the North Coast were stunning! If you've ever thought about sailing do it now with North Coast Sailing, you will be amazed, I certainly was!!
