Chartering in the Caribbean and Northern Europe


Operating in the Caribbean and Northern Europe

Emily Morgan, named after the Yellow Rose of Texas, is a classic Bowman 57 sailing yacht.  She was designed by Holman and Pye, who later designed many Oysters, and built by Southampton Boat Services in Hampshire, UK.

The spacious cockpit is perfect for sipping a cold sun downer whilst watching the sunset. It has an opening table for magical lunches and dinners under the stars. The large bimini fends off the fiercest midday sun. Sun lovers aren’t forgotten, there’s plenty of comfy cushioned deck space for soaking up the sun when we reach the anchorage, just don’t forget to lash on the factor 30! 

Sail handling is managed with furling head sails, main sail with lazy jacks, a mizzen sail aft as well as a spinnaker and mizzen stay sail when speed is of the essence. Emily Morgan is easy to handle with her flexible rig.

Guests can comfortably sit down to dinner either in the generous cockpit or the light and airy saloon. The saloon is spacious with seating around the table and armchairs to relax in.  For entertainment Emily Morgan has a sound system complemented by a comprehensive music library, a selection of games and a carefully chosen reading library.

Your hosts aboard Emily Morgan are British husband and wife team Anna and Bones Black. Together they have sailed over 80,000 miles aboard Emily Morgan, including 10 Atlantic crossings and a circumnavigation. They love showing guests the best of the Caribbean, including a few secret spots.

Both Anna and Bones have sailed from an incredibly young age. Anna’s first sailing experience was at 18 months old. Bones cut his teeth in the notorious Bristol Channel. They are both experienced sailing instructors equally happy cruising deserted islands or racing round the cans and love to impart their wealth of knowledge to a willing audience.

We truly are thankful for making our holiday amazing. Also, thank you so much for the lovely and thoughtful meals - the love in the food was tasted!

March 2015

Our entire crew loved this trip.  Anna and Bones are the most engaging hosts on their beautiful yacht Emily Morgan.  They are excellent sailors but even more extraordinary is the way they can size up what is most important for each guest and how to fulfill that individual interest with out slighting anyone.   Example - teaching Glenn everything he wanted to learn or try out.  He is like a sponge on a boat just loving every detail underway and at anchor.  Bones and Anna included him in every task.  His fiancé loves to relax and enjoy ambience and special canapés.  Everynight Anna and Bones catered to her requests with grace and elegance while simultaneously teaching anchoring techniques to Glenn.  Each guest came home feeling like they were the only ones on the boat and best friends of Anna and Bones.  Our itinerary could not have been better suited for our insatiable desire to sail long transits and snorkel multiple times a day.  In addition, they allotted time for guests to enjoy shore activities.  Our food was plentiful and delicious. Breakfast and lunch as a buffet with multiple gourmet choices. Dinner was a delicious plated meal.  Anna was able to meet all of our special dietary requests with a smile and special attention.
Emily Morgan is immaculate and well maintained.  We were frequently the boat most photographed in a harbor.
We all left the boat fully relaxed but sad to leave our beautiful yacht and lovely hosts.  It was a true vacation above and beyond any expectations. 

Sara R Feb 2014

'Such fun' - fabulous week – re-established my interest in sailing and significantly increased my confidence.  Guest comfort and enjoyment Anna & Bones priority.  A highly recommended experience.

 Paul and Pauline M Feb 2014

We have now settled back in to the home routine - but think everyday how lucky we were to have the holiday of a lifetime. The yacht was fantastic, everything one could wish for. You were brave beyond words to allow us to help and helm your pride a joy. You went well beyond what we should have expected- the perfect hosts, on hand every minute of the day, provided perfect and safe sailing, took us to unbelievable paradise spots with snorkelling to die for!! Our every need was delivered, food at a quality that we could only dream of!

Roger and Ann M Feb 2014

Thank you both so much for your hospitality on Saturday. Edmund and I were made to feel very welcome, the food was fantastic and we really enjoyed the day.

Gerald H Sept 2011

Thank you so much from all three of us for a really great day out on Saturday. From the moment we got on board it was all brilliantly organised and the delicious food and drink seemed to just appear seconds after one or other of you had been actually on deck sailing the boat! It was all extremely professional and we had a great day out.

Neil M Sept 2011

What a wonderful day you gave us on Thursday! We enjoyed everything about it: your splendid boat, the sail before the racing, the relaxed way you conducted the whole day, the lovely lunch and tea and the grandstand position to see the racing. It was great to be there in the thick of it and then come home and see the coverage on YouTube. Brilliant!
