Tradewind Voyages


Promising a luxury cruise holiday with a difference, Tradewind Voyages marries a rich sailing heritage with sleek sophistication, as well as a focus on sustainability. They believe that ocean voyages should be powered by nature, which is why they aim to sail without using propulsion engines for around 70% of each season, using the wind and sun to offer and authentic sailing experience while taking care of the planet. Designed to replicate a 1913 ocean vessel and maintaining the charm of a bygone era, the magnificent Golden Horizon is the world’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, home to 140 classically designed cabins that all look out over the ocean. You can indulge in a spa treatment, enjoy wine tasting with an expert, or sample sensational cuisine in the opulent dining room. The onboard atmosphere is relaxed and informal while remaining elegant, inviting you to unwind and truly immerse yourself in your sailing voyage and discover some of the planet’s most alluring corners. Explore the destinations on your doorstep as you cruise along the British Isles, or discover the magic of the Mediterranean. A little further afield, voyages are available in Dubai, Indonesia, the Indian Ocean and Australia, promising a superlative sailing experience wherever you desire.
