"Had a great week sailing the usual haunts around the Clyde estuary and Arran. We chartered ‘Spectre’ this time round and found her to be fast and well balanced. We will definitely be looking to take her out for our next sailing trip in Scotland."
Spectre is a fast performance cruiser that has a large cockpit and twin wheels. With her wide stern she has an exceptional turn of speed downwind and extra-large aft cabins.
Over the previous few years Spectre has undergone a rolling program of improvements and upgrades including a new Genoa,furling system, plotter, and mainsail stack-pack.
Accommodation: Spectre is coded for 8 persons. Accommodation comprises 3 double cabins plus a double and single or two separate single berths in the main saloon. There are two heads both with showers and one is en-suite in the forward master cabin.
The well-appointed galley has new crockery, cutlery, pots and pans; a twin ring cooker with oven; and a 240v powered microwave. There is a large easily accessible fridge. Hot water is provided from the engine or shore power. Spectre has Webasto central heating with vents in all cabins; and a Bluetooth music system with USB port and indoor and outdoor speakers.
The cockpit and saloon tables each provide seating space for up to 8.
Spectre offers performance and superb handling under sail. The powered winch makes hoisting and reefing the fully battened mainsail effortless. Spectre has a roller reefing genoa and single line mainsail reefing. All reefing and hoisting can be done from the safety of the cockpit. The cockpit is exceptionally large and there are two steering positions. There are a full range of instruments; Raymarine depth, log and wind; Autohelm autopilot; and Raymarine C80 chart plotter. All paper charts and pilot books for the cruising area are supplied.

"Yes, we really enjoyed our trip with Sailaway Scotland! The boat was in very good condition and well equipped. Muir was a fantastic. He is witty personality with a good sense of humour. His rich experience in sailing and his know of the sailing area was very useful. Thanks also to you for the perfect organization of the trip - and the sleeping bags ??!" Peter Felder, Switzerland
"We chartered our boat – Spectre – a 42 foot Sun Odyssey boat, from Sailaway in Largs for a week. The boat was in excellent working order. Everything was well maintained, and we were impressed by the quality of the sails and especially the spinnaker. She sailed well and the week was fast, and was easy to handle. The booking, handover, and chartering process was very easy and professional. The team were most responsive and on-hand when needed. All in all we had a great time, and would gladly charter Spectre again."
Peter Groegl, Austria
