New to Saugatuck/Douglas in 2021!
Set sail on the expansive, fresh waters of Lake Michigan aboard Tamerlane; a classic, 1960s wooden boat that’s brimming with charm.
Available for private charters up to 6 passengers, Tamerlane offers a unique sailing experience that can be crafted to meet your group’s vision. Whether it’s helping to hoist the sails alongside our friendly crew, or simply taking in the views while sipping on a glass of wine – we can’t wait to offer you a memorable cruise out on the water.
*Not currently taking reservations for Tamerlane yet but check back soon! We are planning to start Tamerlane’s season in early August 2021.
WATCH THE TAMERLANE SAILING VIDEO
We shot this little video to capture the vibe of sailing on Tamerlane. She’s a very charming and unique yacht and it’s just too difficult to adequately put into words what it’s like to sail aboard her. We hope you enjoy watching this as much as our crew enjoyed making it.
Food & Drink
Free & Easy
5 days in advance
After departing from the Red Dock in Douglas, we will follow the winding Kalamazoo River before setting sail on Lake Michigan. Once on the lake, we will set our course and sail along the beautiful shore line.
We have a large parking lot available just steps away from the dock.
Since this is a private sailing experience, we are able to sail with all ages. Please note that any child under the age of 6 must wear a life jacket at all times due to US Coast Guard rules. We provide age appropriate life jackets, but feel free to bring your own.
Tamerlane is equipped with a small bathroom (aka “head’) that is fairly rudimentary.
Unfortunately due to Tamerlane’s wooden construction, dogs can easily scratch the deck and varnished finishes. We love dogs but it’s better if they stay home for your sail.
FOOD AND DRINK
BYOB! Feel free to bring along whatever you like to eat and drink on board. We keep a cooler full of ice on board for your use as well as a modest stock of other useful items like a corkscrew/bottle opener, disposable utensils, cups, etc.
It’s a good idea to bring an extra layer of clothing since it’s often a few degrees cooler on the water.
RIVER CRUISE OPTION
Sometimes the weather in on Lake Michigan can be a bit unpredictable. In the case of high wind and waves on Lake Michigan, we’re able to extend the river cruise portion to avoid cancelling your cruise altogether.
The captain or crew will be in touch on the day of your sail if it looks like we’ll have to cancel. If that’s the case then you’ll have the option to reschedule or take a 100% refund.
NO SAILING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY
The captain and crew will take care of sailing the boat. However we love when our guests help out with the sails or even take the helm!
