Greater Manchester has more than its fair share of cool and quirky Airbnbs, from stylish loft apartments in the Northern Quarter to townhouses in the suburbs. However, there is one that is unlike any other and offers a unique experience.
Moored at Clippers Quay in Salford is a 130ft classic yacht that you can book on Airbnb. It’s perfect for those who have always loved a taste of the good life, or if they can’t stop watching the Below Deck TV show.
Salford Quays may not be the Mediterranean (although we can dream), but the yacht, called the Jacamar, still provides guests with a glamorous stay.
The romantic walk a short distance from Manchester that seems to be taken from a fairy tale
Step aboard Jacamar and you’ll immediately feel like an A-lister. The yacht is decked out with elegant designer fixtures and fittings and every corner oozes luxury.
The yacht features a grand 800ft main salon, which is furnished with elegant cream sofas where you can relax with friends or family. Enjoy meals in the dining room where there is a custom oval granite and glass table; you can even hire a private chef to come on board if you wish.
Hidden inside the wheelhouse is a comfortable TV room with picture windows. Meanwhile, the galley kitchen, with an original ship’s oven and state-of-the-art appliances, has everything you need for your stay.
Jacamar has three beautifully designed en-suite cabins, each sleeping two people. All of the elegant bathrooms feature Neal’s Yard products for a luxurious bathing experience.
Throughout the yacht you will find stunning artwork and photography by award-winning photographers Anthony Crook, Guy Farrow and Amelia Troubridge. With such a beautiful interior, you’ll start to believe that the Jacamar is moored in Monaco or Nice.
The yacht is a short walk from the restaurants and bars of Media City. It’s also the perfect base for exploring the city center, being only 15 minutes away by tram. There are two parking spaces available, while the Exchange Quay tram stop is just five minutes away.
Jacamar sleeps six, although it can accommodate up to 10 with the addition of two small fold-out double beds. The yacht is not strictly a party boat and does not accept large groups, stag or hen parties.
The yacht can be booked from £434 per night. For more information and to book, visit the Airbnb website.
