Rubicon 3 Yacht Oriole

Yacht Oriole

The only non Clipper 60 in the Rubicon 3 fleet, Oriole is a Bowman 57, one of the great ocean cruising yacht designs. She is the easiest boat in the fleet to sail, with roller furler sails and a big cruising-style cockpit. Her big saloon is famous amongst everyone who has sailed with Rubicon 3 (there have been some pretty special nights in there in Spitsbergen and beyond!) and her ability to soak up rough sea on longer voyages is legendary. She carries a massive 1000 litres of water  and 2 tonnes of fuel. A true go anywhere, anytime expedition yacht.

No smoking sign

We operate a strict no smoking policy

The smoking of any form of tobacco is forbidden on board or on the dock next to the boat. We also very strongly discourage the smoking of any tobacco at any time between the start and end date as the smell comes on-board into confined living space. The use of e-cigarettes is fine.
