About Us

The design of the Santa Cruz ’70 sailing yachts is very popular with sailboat racing enthusiasts. Although the hull and sail are designed for speed, the inboard amenities are many, unlike other racing yachts. There is plenty of safe and comfortable topside seating to view the sights and the wildlife of Monterey Bay. Chardonnay Sailing Charters has been able to create a highly-touted experience that caters not only to families, locals, and tourists but to seasoned sailors alike.

Our company is thrilled to be offering the public a genuinely unique experience viewing Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary from a different perspective. Join us on a sunset sail, bring the whole family for an afternoon cruise with pizza, or relax with friends on the water with a brunch cruise. We offer both public and private sailing charters; join us today!

Excellent sail

Wonderful crew, Our Orthodontic Team s Doctors went out on the sail as a team-building event. It turned out perfect we had the best time on the water together. I would recommend it for a large or small group. I want to do it again with my family. Highly recommend the sail.
