New Plymouth Base Announced

Since the company began trading in 2007, Pure Latitude have regularly based one of their yachts in the West Country for a few weeks each summer.  This has always proved popular amongst members, especially those with families, and so along with demand from West Country based sailors for the Pure Latitude concept closer to home, the easy decision to open a new base in Plymouth was made.

 

Situated in Queens Anne’s Battery in the heart of Plymouth, the base will be ideally located to make the most of the superb cruising grounds the West Country has to offer.  Rich in historic naval history and with many lovely creeks and anchorages, Plymouth Sound and the River Tamar provide fantastic sheltered waters, ideal for families and those looking to build experience.  Just outside of the Sound, although still well within easy reach, is the pretty River Yealm with the delightful villages of Newton Ferrers and Nos Mayo - perfect for a spot for lunch or delicious crew tea.

 

For those wishing to explore further afield, the wonderful towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth are an easy day sail to the east, offering access to the beautiful Kingsbridge Estuary and River Dart, and onwards to the delightful settings of Dittisham and Totnes.  Exploring further along the Devonshire Coast are also of course the popular destinations of Brixham and Torquay. 

 

From Plymouth to the west lie the beautiful Fowey, Fal and Helford Rivers.  This stunning stretch of Cornish coastline offers plenty to explore and numerous delightful towns and villages, such as the pretty port of Fowey, Falmouth with its rich maritime history and not to be missed Maritime Museum, and charming villages of the Helford River, Daphne De Maurier country.  The Devon and Cornwall coastline has understandably long been a favourite amongst sailors.

 

Pure Latitude pride themselves on their varied fleet of sailing yachts and power boats, providing a great choice for members.  Based upon the all-round popularity of their Dufour 325’s, 34 and 40E, the team has decided upon a new Dufour 375 to launch their Plymouth base.  This performance cruiser is easy to handle with all lines lead back to the cockpit, plus twin wheels providing easy access to the transom for swimming and dinghy access whilst at anchor – ideal for simple, relaxed and hassle free sailing.  Offering an extremely beneficial Yacht Partnership Programme, the Pure Latitude team is keen to expand their Plymouth fleet for anybody considering purchasing a boat or existing owners recognizing the unrivaled benefits of the scheme.
