'Soundsbysail' is owned and operated by Phil and Deborah Clegg, and is based in the Kenepuru Sound in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds.

Phil gained much of his commercial sailing experience working with a Sydney-based yacht charter company, Sydney by Sail, where he taught sailing, skippered charters, and along with Deborah, helped deliver yachts from Sydney to Hamilton Island in the Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia.

Deborah has also crewed on a Cruise Boat in the Doubtful and Dusky Sounds , Fiordland in New Zealand.  

Enjoy the stunning scenery of the Kenepuru and Pelorus Sounds from the comfort of our luxury yacht, whether it's for an afternoon sail, a weekend away or longer.

With a large double aft cabin and double v-berth, toilet and shower, full galley and roomy saloon lounge, "Relax" is the ideal vessel for your sailing experience in the Sounds.
