    The Esperance is a 50 Foot Sailing Schooner. She is Licenced by the SAMSA to carry 45 passengers + Crew within 15 miles from port  and 5 miles offshore. Schooners have two masts with the forward or front mast being the short and the aft mast taller. She carries four sails which are known by their numbers, #1 – Genoa,  # 2 – Yankee,  #3 Fore-Main and lastly the #4-Aft Main.
    The 4 Sail configuration allows the Esperance to sail comfortably in a wider range of wind compared to a Sail Boat with only one main . If the wind increases, we simply drop one of the sails as against a more labour intense exercise of reefing a sail. The Configuration of the Esperance is a basically a well-decked vessel with two large cockpit areas.
    The Forward passenger area is situated between the masts and well below the rigging, and the aft passenger area is behind the cabin and aft mast . The Saloon offers wind and sun protection for a limited number of passengers. We have one Marine toilet situated on the Port Side.
