Conwy (Wales)

Situated in the most stunning surroundings of North Wales, magical views of the historic 13th century Conwy Castle, incredible mountain ranges and superb sailing waters are just a start to what the marina and this fabulous location in North Wales has to offer. Alongside the marina is 'the Quay', a luxury contemporary hotel and day spa complex. The perfect place to relax, the marina provides a sophisticated retreat for boat owners and their guests. The Marina is just of the main A55 coastal road 1 hours 30 from Manchester, 2 hours 20 from Birmingham and Sheffield. Hourly train service from Manchester.

With sufficient rise of tide, shallow draught vessels can explore the Conwy River as far inland as  Tal-y-Cafn, where you can secure alongside for lunch. In the opposite direction there are the bays and unspoilt coves of Anglesey, along with the beautiful Menai Straits to be explored. After a pleasant day's sail, what could be better than to spend the evening in one of the many local anchorages, sampling the nearby island hospitality.

Anglesey is a delightful cruising ground in itself, with a sheltered anchorage always nearby. Further afield, there is the beautiful Llyn Peninsula, Bardsey and the Tudwells Islands, whilst Pilot's Cove, Porth Dinllaen and Aberdaron are attractive ports of call on passage to Pwllheli or Barmouth.

The breathtaking coastline of Ireland is only 85 miles away. The ports of Dublin, Malahide, Carlingford and Strangford Lough are just a few of the many delightful harbours along the east coast. And Irish hospitality is second to none!

The Isle of Man is another popular destination, and port of call on passage from Strangford Lough or the west coast of Scotland. In settled conditions, this too is a delightful cruising ground in itself, and the Port St. Mary Yacht Club offers a warm welcome to visiting yachtsmen.


The Boat

Our Hanse 345 is an easily handled boat complimented a modern open design.  It simply sails well in all winds.  A large cockpit, roomy saloon and 3 cabins is ideal for groups and the longer cruising you’ll want to do in North Wales.

The 345 is defined by a long waterline and low wetted surface, ample sections aft, and a relatively high-aspect keel and rudder. In short, the 345 spins on a dime so handling couldn’t be easier.
