The company that own the boat are a sail training firm that have recently started offer a boat and B service. There are a couple of other similar boats in the harbour that offer the same.
The first thing to remember is that this is a yacht not a hotel or cruise liner. This means that cabins are small and there are ladders (steep stairs), coamings (lips in doorways to stop water sloshing around when at sea) and ropes etc to negotiate. Before you think that this sounds like hell... Once you are aware that this will be the case you will be fine and it does feel like a bit of an adventure.
We spent a lovely night aboard in the yacht harbour which is a 10 minute walk along the seafront from the rail station and about the same to the cruise port. The old town is on the other side of the road. The pontoon has a coded gate for security.
Breakfast is fairly basic but fine and there is a small galley (kitchen) which includes an oven and fridge, coffee maker and coffee pods. The ice cream parlour opposite is very good and popular with locals and there are a number of pizzerias and high end sea food places to eat in easy walking distance. The manager will happily give you her advice when you arrive or if you pop over to see her (she lives on another boat nearby).
