With Sail Windjammer, there is never a dull moment. You are not merely a passenger but part of a small group of fun-loving people. Throughout your Caribbean journey, sail safe and steady on the S/V Mandalay to unspoiled beaches, hidden inlets and sparkling warm waters that conventional cruise ships just can't reach.

The s/v Mandalay was built in 1923 and named Hussar, by Burmeister & Wain in Copenhagen for E. F. Hutton as a gift to his wife.
In 1935, this historic ship was sold to Norwegian shipping magnate G.Unger Vetlesen and his wife Maude Monell and was renamed Vema, acombination of Vetlesen and Maude.

During World War II Maude Monell donated Vema to the American war effort and was put into service as a merchant marine cadet training ship. Vema was first put to use patrolling coastal waters for the US Coast Guard and later served as a barrack and training ship for the United States Merchant Marine. In 1953 the Lamont Geological Observatory (now the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory [LDEO]), a research unit of Columbia University leased the vessel and soon bought it, becoming renowned as one of the world’s most productive oceanographic research vessels and the first ship to sail a million nautical miles making scientific observations helping to redefine the understanding of tectonic plates and the continental drift.

After its career as a research vessel, she entered a new career as a cruising yacht, the S/V Mandalay, accommodating 58 Passengers and about 24 Crew. A three masted, 236 ft. tall ship with teak decks and original wood work throughout the ship. All cabins have ensuite bathrooms, size varying depending on cabin type.

On the s/v Mandalay, experience a Caribbean few others ever see or even dream of. Partake in raising the sails, take a turn at the helm or just enjoy the winds of the Caribbean sea filling the sails with new friends aboard. With Sail Windjammer, you can explore Caribbean Islands on the S/V Mandalay!

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
