About TILLY MINT

Operating in the Caribbean, East Mediterranean and Other Cruising Areas

Tilly Mint is a  handcrafted 67ft sailboat built in England by Discovery Yachts – a boatyard renowned for innovative and award winning sailboats.  She was designed by the most prominent naval architect of this century, Ron Holland, and launched in 2009.  A major re-fit was completed in 2014.

Tilly Mint sleeps 7 in 3 cabins.

TILLY MINT's spacious ensuite master cabin is aft with more than 6’6” headroom.  It has a Queen walk-around bed, a large TV and DVD player, IPOD connection, A/C, a dressing table and stool.  The  bathroom features a glass shower enclosure with power shower, electric head and a beautiful cherry vanity.

Two guest cabins are located forward:

The walk-around queen cabin has a large TV, DVD and IPOD connection.  
The door to this queen cabin can be moved to make the luxury bathroom either en suite, or shared with the portside cabin.  

The second forward cabin, with a large double lower and a single Pullman bunk, is ideal for a couple or 2 children.  It has A/C, a small TV and DVD player and an IPOD connection.  Three people can share this cabin if required.

The crew cabin is forward to starboard and shares the starboard head and shower with the portside guest cabin when the forward queen cabin is en suite.

Testimonials

"We stayed on Tilly Mint for a week in August and had a fantastic holiday. The boat was luxurious and well equipped and Andrew and Arwyn as skipper and cook looked after our every need. The food was delicious and Arwyn put a lot of effort into cooking for us and our young children. Andrew is very knowledgable and experienced with the boat and was a pleasure to chat to while we sailed. We would thoroughly recommend both Tilly Mint and Andrew and Arwyn and we hope to return soon. - J. Bax"
Mallorca, August 2014

We had a truly lovely holiday with Capt. Andrew and Chef Arwyn. TILLY MINT is a gorgeous and well-equipped yacht, Arwyn's cooking is VERY GOOD - we especially enjoyed her dishes with a 'hint of the South' (she's from Texas), and Andrew is a confidence-inspiring skipper who is also great fun to be with. Overall 10 out of 10!

"And Arwyn is a great chef!"
