What's the best yacht layout for us?

We have an excellent selection of quality sailing yachts for bareboat yacht charter ranging from 30' to 52' including all the well-known names, Jeanneau, Beneteau, Dufour and Bavaria. Most are less than 4 years old and many are brand new models.

If there's 1 or 2 couples onboard look out for 2-cabin yachts which give you more spacious cabins. In the Med the largest 2-cabin yacht is 38', but in the BVIs, we have a superb Jeanneau 50Ds with just 2 master cabin.

For 3 couples you have plenty of choice of yachts with 3 double cabins but maybe you do need 2 heads? Some of the larger 3 cabin yachts have 3 heads so each cabin gets ensuite facilities.

Larger groups need to work out what cabin layout suits them. Over 45', yachts either have 3 double cabins and a twin with narrow bunk beds or 4 smaller doubles. The 5th cabin is either another twin cabin or a skipper's bunk in the bow. 

3 or 4 couples should also consider a catamaran, most of which have 4 equal sized cabins, usually with ensuite facilities. Even if you haven’t sailed cats before, you’ll be impressed by their easy handling. Cats are very popular in Turkey and the Caribbean where you spend most nights on anchor rather than on a crowded town quay or marina.

"We had a fantastic time with Peter at Rock Sailing in Gibraltar. Many thanks for organising the course for us. Peter was an excellent teacher and looked after us with great food on board too! While storms raged in the Straights for our first two days, we learnt a great deal about all aspects of yacht safety in the relatively calm Marina. By Wednesday our crew of 4 were eager to set sail and that afternoon we were on our way to Ceuta in a force 6-7, making good headway at an average 11knots. What a privilege! The next three days were filled with great sailing, dolphins, and good company. We will certainly recommend you and Rock Sailing in the future and we are very much looking forward to our flotilla holiday with you in May."
