"To come from Scotland for such a great week on this ship was really special. We had a wonderful time and hope to be back soon."
- Sheena & Iain
Welcome aboard Diamant, a 101’ brigantine schooner. Built in 1978, Diamant has been well maintained and refurbished in order to provide the highest level of comfort and safety. Our professional crew works hard to ensure that everything is running shipshape.
Diamant hosts an intimate group of twelve passengers in six air conditioned staterooms. All cabins feature portholes, private facilities and 110V outlets. Choose a cabin with a double lower and a single upper berth, or one with both double and single lower berths.

It is our goal to provide the best possible cruising experience for our guests. We believe that begins with an unshakeable foundation in safety and seamanship.
Island Windjammers continuously strives to maintain all safety gear to the highest standards. The vessel is fully equipped with all required firefighting, navigation, and safety equipment. Safety equipment inspections are performed in compliance with regulatory requirements.
Survival equipment includes life rings, life vests for all passengers and crew, and a life raft that accommodates 20 individuals. In addition to the life raft, the tender can comfortably accommodate 15-20 individuals. This gives us twice the capacity needed to accommodate all guests and crewmembers.
The Diamant tender is a state-of-the-art semi-rigid inflatable vessel purchased in 2012.
Diamant crewmembers are highly trained in emergency procedures. All full time crewmembers are required to carry current STCW 95 certifications. STCW 95 is an arduous and comprehensive internationally recognized course, which trains individuals in firefighting, survival, personal safety and social responsibility, and first aid.
In addition, our regular crewmembers are certified in Red Cross Basic Life Support techniques. An automatic external defibrillator is carried onboard; all full time crewmembers are trained in its use. An oxygen tank and oxygen delivery equipment is also carried onboard the vessel. Crewmembers participate in weekly emergency and safety drills.
General vessel safety recommendations and emergency procedures, including a muster drill, are reviewed with all guests prior to setting sail. Life vests are located in every cabin. An additional full complement of life vests is stored on deck.
The safety of our guests and crew is our top priority.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard Diamant!
