This beautifully appointed boat is introduced to you by Static Boat Holidays and is a Hanse 445 and only three years old. Pipedreamer 7 has three double cabins; the master cabin is located on the bow of the boat and contains a separate shower room and a washroom with toilet. The other two cabins are located at the back (stern) of the boat and share another bathroom with shower facilities. The boat can accommodate six people comfortably.

Outside there are two seating areas, one in the cockpit and another on the bow of the boat, offering plenty of room to lounge around relaxing, dining, reading a book, fishing or just listening to music. There is a dining table in the cockpit which can accommodate up to eight people. If the weather is exceptionally hot a canopy can be erected for shade. On the bathing platform at the rear of the boat is a hot and cold water shower for rinsing off after a swim.

The kitchen is simply and effectively designed with an inbuilt microwave, Nespresso coffee machine (a selection of coffee will be provided), two fridges, a two ring gas cooker and oven, double sinks and left fully equipped for all your catering requirements.

Moving into the main saloon or lounge area, there are two spacious seating areas around a central table. In this area is a flat screen television, writing desk and CD player/radio which will take MP3 or Iphone. Music from the main saloon can be piped to the external seating area in the cockpit.

Pipedreamer 7 is a luxurious boat, fully kitted out with colour coordinating monogrammed bedding and towels. The decor on board is geared to create an atmosphere of relaxation.

Pipedreamer 7 is located in Guernsey from October to the end of March. The boat has a Webasto heating system throughout enabling guests to stay warm even in the coldest of weather.

Pipedreamer 7 is in Alderney on a mooring for the summer months. Although on a swing mooring (not step ashore) two water taxi trips per day are incorporated in your rental. The taxi service runs continually from early in the morning until midnight. The owner will come on board at your convenience daily to check the battery and water levels.

If staying on the mooring you should be advised that if there is any Easterly wind the boat can become rocky until the wind settles.

There is no WiFi on the boat. In Alderney the WiFi in the sailing club is unlocked for visitors use, and in Guernsey there is WiFi available throughout the island.

If you wish to stay on the boat in Guernsey there are daily flights and ferries to aid your escape from the mainland, and from Guernsey it is an easy hop to Alderney.

Staying in such a central location in Guernsey will enable you to discover the beauty of the island. Within easy walking distance of the marina is the town of St. Peter Port, with its many narrow streets housing restaurants, clothing outlets, jewellers and a wonderful ice cream parlour, the Castle Coronet and Museums. If you wish to venture further afield than St. Peter Port the bus depot is close by, with buses crisscrossing the whole island enabling easy sightseeing opportunities to unfold.

Due to the mild climate the Island enjoys a rich floral heritage with the first wild flowers appearing as early as January until Autumn when the island is a blaze of colour and texture as different species come into bloom.

Guernsey's environment will reinvigorate your senses, with sleepy lanes, nature reserves, migrating birds and beautiful beaches all awaiting discovery.

Pipedreamer 7's summer location is on a mooring buoy in Braye Bay, Alderney. At Alderney there is plenty to keep everyone entertained, from the youngest to the eldest.

Right by the mooring is the beach of Braye, sandy, sheltered and ideal for swimming. By the beach are various restaurants, cafes and bars. Located here is the sailing club, fish and chip shop, convenience store, cycle shop and tourist information centre.

A short distance away towards the centre of the island is the village of St Anne, where you will again find a selection of small retail outlets, the museum, Church and various fabulous places to eat.

Pipedreamer 7's owner states that dogs are welcome on the boat in Alderney provided that they are well behaved and come from the UK or other parts of the EU on scheduled flights or ferries. I cannot think of a nicer location to bring a dog, as little or no traffic, pathways, tracks, beaches and open spaces abound.

Alderney is a paradise for bird watchers; thousands of seabirds make it the most spectacular of the Channel Islands for bird watching. Sightings of Puffins, Fulmars, Guillemots, Razorbills, Shag and Cormorant, to name but a few, are regularly seen during the summer months.

An easy way to explore the island is by bike on the Alderney cycle route. Once you leave the small town of St Anne you will encounter little traffic and with over ten miles of paved roads and fifty miles of unspoilt tracks and pathways cycling is an ideal way to get around.

There are numerous suggested walks; one of our favourite is the Alderney Stones Walk, which takes you right round the island on an eleven mile route, visiting sculptures created by Andy Goldsworthy. Andy chose Alderney for his project called the Alderney Stones; the project involved the construction and siting of eleven 5ft diameter, rammed-earth stones, each containing different materials from around Alderney. With natural exposure to the elements over a period of time the materials are beginning to be unearthed.

For the less active there are guided bus tours and a short train journey, plus various local available boat trips.

Alderney is also renowned for its fishing, there are numerous competitions throughout the year, the tourist information centre also has a leaflet detailing all the local spots around the Island suitable for fishing. From Pipedreamer 007 anchored in the bay you can fish straight off the side, this year I caught fish every evening!

Direct flights are available to Alderney from Southampton; alternatively you can fly to Guernsey from various points around the UK, transferring then to an Alderney flight.

An additional bonus is that the owner of Pipedreamer 7 is a qualified Yacht Master, and is prepared for an additional fee to take visitors for a sailing trip around the island on Pipedreamer 7, or to Guernsey, Jersey, Sark or Herm or selected locations along the French coast which would involve night stopovers.

The Bailiwick of Guernsey region

The Channel Islands consist of a group of Islands Guernsey, Jersey, Herm, Sark and Alderney located between the South English Coast, and the Northern Coast of France.

This boat can be located anywhere in the Channel Islands or St Malo for your let. Her home port is Alderney during the summer months, but she also has a mooring in Guernsey.

"Lovely yacht experience"

We stayed over new year into jan 2014. The yacht looked like somewhere a bit different to stay and we were not disappointed . The location moored in guernsey was excellent, although you do have to ' climb' aboard ours all part of the fun! The rocking of the boat and water slapping against the bottom can get a bit noisy in the
smaller bedrooms at night. We where nice and warm at all times, a good heating system on board! The best bit was sitting outside drinking a glass of port just enjoying the view. In an evening you are just a 5 min walk to numerous excellent restaurants and shops. The toilets on board can be a little temperamental but you do get the hang of using them. Overall a Very good location! And a lovely experience.
