Perry Golf's 2014 Golf Cruise portfolio features sail and motor yachts and chartered hotel barges that meander along the inland waterways of England, Scotland and France, with each itinerary including lots of golf.
- Le Ponant is a tall-masted sailing yacht for 64 guests. In January, she will cruise through the French West Indies from Martinique to St. Bart’s for 7 nights and 4 rounds of golf. In June, the gorgeous yacht Mediterranean cruises from Nice to Valetta by way of Italy, Sardinia, Corsica and Sicily, with golf on the agenda.
- Freedom is a classic and fully-restored Mathis-Trumpy wooden yacht that sails between Charleston and Savannah with as many as 10 guests.
- Among Perry Golf's 7 hotel barges is the 8-guest Scottish Highlander, which sails Scotland’s Great Glen en route to the Highlands by way of Loch Ness. Golf-oriented itineraries are also available in Burgundy and Provence, England and Scotland.
Among the highlights of the golf cruises are sightseeing, wine tours, abbeys, castles and gardens, personal chefs and outstanding wine cellars.
Made famous by Downtown Abbey, Highclere Castle is a stop on the Magna Carta barge's England’s Royal River Thames cruise next summer.
For reservations received by September 15, 2013 prices are being held for 2014 travel; also, Magna Carta golfers will receive a $400 booking credit.
