Charter a sailing yacht and set sail on your own voyage of discovery. "Bareboat" means you charter a fully equipped yacht without a skipper or crew and you skipper it yourself. To charter a yacht bareboat you should be RYA Day Skipper standard and be assisted by a competent crew. In some countries you will need an RYA practical certificate. We have an excellent selection of yachts and catamarans for your sailing holiday, including many brand new models.
Join a flotilla sailing holiday in Greece, Turkey or Croatia if you want to skipper your own yacht with the added support of a flotilla lead crew and the social side of sailing in company. It’s a popular sailing holiday for couples, friends and families. During school holidays there are usually other families on the flotillas, so it’s fun for the kids too.
Even if you're a complete novice you can enjoy a sailing holiday in the sunshine and “learn the ropes”. You can start from scratch or brush up your sailing skills or gain a qualification. We offer RYA yacht sailing courses for singles and couples in Greece, Turkey and Gibraltar as well as flotilla sailing courses in Greece for families who want to learn to sail together while enjoying their sailing holiday.
Charter a motor yacht if you prefer a few hundred horsepower to play with. We offer motoryachts for bareboat charter in Greece, Croatia, Mmallorca and the British Virgin Islands, including flybridge motoryachts and sportscruisers. To charter a motoryacht you need experience of twin-engine motoryachts and in the Mediterranean you'll need RYA ICC (Motor) certificate.
If you want to relax on your sailing holiday or you do not have the experience to sail your own yacht, choose a crewed yacht with professional skipper and crew onboard. This is a wonderful sailing holiday - perfect for a honeymoon, romantic anniversary or special holiday with friends and family.
A sailing holiday is a perfect vacation but why not add a few days ashore in a hotel afterwards. We offer a selection of beach hotels in Greece, Turkey and throughout the Caribbean. Some of your crew may want to try their hand at watersports. Some of your crew may want time to just relax by the pool, on the beach or in the hotel spa.
