Carriacou Schooner 73 “Jambalaya” (2002)


Leave the modern world behind, enjoy a Grenadines sailing vacation on our traditional Caribbean schooner. Blending the best of traditional wooden boat construction with the latest nautical technology and outfitted to the highest standard, Jambalaya, a 73ft Caribbean schooner, is a perfect combination of tradition and comfort. She was built in 2002 in Carriacou (the Grenadines) and your hosts Peter and Sylvie completed a full re-fit at the beginning of 2010.

Jambalaya features a magnificent Master Suite, which is light and airy with a king-size bed and a 9ft headroom and has its own personal entrance giving total privacy.

Jambalaya’s spacious, classic interior features varnished hardwoods, contrasting pleasantly with the traditionally white-painted decor, making every room light and inviting.

A large covered cockpit is a perfect place for outdoor dining while enjoying the panoramic views. The deck itself is very large and spacious with plenty of room to relax in the shade or sun.

Your crew Peter & Sylvie are passionate about providing the best service and exquisite food!

Your Crew

Peter and Sylvie have sailed the Windward and Leeward islands over the last several years on a variety of vessels and their passion for traditional sailing on their Carriacou Schooner will provide you with an exciting and relaxing cruising experience.

Their knowledge of the Caribbean sailing area is second to none and they are looking forward to sailing you to the best spots for great snorkelling, secluded sunbathing and water sports; ending the day with alfresco dining amid magnificent views.

Captain Peter Bennett, who hails from the UK, bought his first boat at the age of 26. After many adventures sailing the rocky shores of Western Europe, he set off on a five-year circumnavigation of the world relying on his celestial navigation skills to show him the way – this was before the days of GPS technology. Crossing the Atlantic his first land fall was the tropical islands of the West Indies. Peter transited the Panama Canal and sailed on to the South Seas, meeting the rough waters of New Zealand and the calm of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. When all was said and done and thousands of miles had passed beneath his keel the Caribbean kept calling him back.

With his extensive experience, matched with his formal sailing qualifications, Peter considers the Caribbean to be the best holiday sailing location.


Chef Sylvie Bennett, is passionate about providing the best service and is a talented cook. Born in France, she has brought with her many French-cuisine recipes and has adapted them for local products: she will keep you well fed with her French flair for Creole and Caribbean specialties!

Besides her passion for cooking, Sylvie is also a qualified Indian Head masseuse and will be delighted to provide you with a massage on board Jambalaya! Sylvie speaks French, English and Spanish.
