Jolly Sailing celebrates its three years of activity in Long Beach
In February 2019, Max and Kayla Jolly opened Jolly Sailing, a business that would capture the hearts of visitors and residents of Long Beach by offering them a premium boat rental experience. The company offers individuals a new way to experience the immensity of the Pacific Ocean: on a sailboat, with a drink in hand, with family, friends or colleagues. Accompanied by a licensed captain, all guests are free to relax and enjoy the ride. The owners of the little one, Certified Green yacht charter companies pride themselves on the service they provide to their passengers, who, according to Yelp and google business ratings, is at the 5-star level.
Based in downtown Long Beach, Jolly Sailing offers a gateway to an incredible natural space, the Pacific Ocean. Surfers, kitesurfers and wealthy people with private yachts know the magical experience the ocean offers, but encountering its glory can be difficult for those without those skills and wealth. Behold, Jolly Sailing bridges the gap by welcoming residents and visitors aboard for afternoon and evening charters. Guests enjoy the ability to take the helm as well as the thrill of massive sails passing from side to side as the boat passes through the eye of the wind. Sights of sleeping sea lions and sunsets as wide as the horizon also contribute to the memorable sailing experience that Jolly Sailing offers.
Kayla Jolly commented on Jolly Sailing’s impending anniversary, sharing that “the years flew by. There have been ups and downs and it has been an incredible journey. The decision to buy our first boat was daunting, but I’m so glad we took a leap of faith. Then a year later when COVID shut us down, we got anxious again, but it all worked out. We have experienced such growth, and my husband and I couldn’t be more proud of our business. »
During the off-season, Max and Kayla focus on improving services and maintaining the vessels between charters. To evaluate their charter service, they chartered a boat in the Caribbean in December 2021. By switching roles and experiencing a sailboat charter through the eyes of a client, they were able to identify points strengths of their business as well as opportunities for improvement. The exercise provided owners with increased gratitude for Jolly Sailing’s friendly captains and the comfort of their vessel. Additionally, they were pleased with the extent of amenities their company offered customers compared to what was provided by the boat they had chartered. While the owners, Max and Kayla, saw the increased maximum occupancy of the Caribbean boat as a benefit, they realize that their maximum party size of 6 passengers provides them with the opportunity to provide an experience more intimate. It is possible that Jolly Sailing will invest in a vessel with increased occupancy on the route, but for now they are happy with the experiences they offer. As for maintenance, the vessel will receive TLC between charters this winter. The hull will receive a fresh bottom paint and the cabin hardwood floors will be refinished.
