Sailing in crewed yachts near
Donostia – San Sebastian,
aboard classic vessels
an experience you will never forget.
Sailing around Donostia-San Sebastian, along the nearby coast (or anywhere really) and traditional wooden boats are our passion. Ostarte Sailing began in 2017 thanks to the passion of two young sailors, Amuaitz Lertxundiand Edgar De Pedro, from Gipuzkoa in the Basque Country. Ostarte Sailing nace en el año 2017 de la mano de dos jóvenes marinos gipuzkoanos, Amuaitz Lertxundi y Edgar De Pedro. Our goal is to restore and share our maritime heritage by sailing. We offer a wide range of sailing experiences on classic yachts along the incredible Gipuzkoan coast. Sailing with us turns into something more than a simple boat trip.
We at OSTARTE SAILING aim to showcase yachts with history. Unique, hand-built vessels, which have been exploring the seas since last century, and right up to the present day. Our sailing boats that were created by naval craftsmen are full of history and boast exceptional designs.
Lucretia is an emblematic Dutch yacht constructed in 1927, designed by the prestigious naval architect, G. De Vries Lentsch Jr. Its fine lines make it into a unique craft – elegant, full of history and style. It gives its passengers an unforgettable experience and is one of the oldest active yachts in our waters. It has an overall length is 19.3 metres and has a rigged sail surface of 180m2 – Bermudian Ketch. Built with the aim of giving his daughter a taste for the sea.
In 2018 Ostarte Sailing sailed the Tanit for the first time off the coast of Brittany. Finally, in May 2019 it sailed to Pasajes with the aim of getting a complete refit and to give it a new lease of life. After months of hard work and much affection, the Tanit once again shone brightly, becoming what it had always been, an agile seafaring yacht that was ready to share in our passion for classic boats and traditional sailing.

Sailing by the hour
Tailor made trips
One August morning Lucretia appeared in the port of Pasajes, near Donostia. Amuaitz at that time was working at the Albaola Basque Sea Factory and Edgar in the «Mater» museum in the very same port. They had for some time been speaking and thinking about getting a boat and try to live their dream of sailing on the seas. It was love at first sight for Edgar and just after seeing the yacht he immediately called Amuaitz and they decided to speak with the boat owner. The craft was in a shocking state, it was easy to see that it needed many hours work to get it shipshape but they could also see its great potential. And that was the beginning of the history of OSTARTE SAILING.
