HOLIDAY IN YOUR FAMILY OR SOCIAL BUBBLE ON A PRIVATE YACHT CHARTER
Since time immemorial people have gone to the sea for their health. Now, with ever greater concerns about keeping a safe space from others, there are even more reasons to put some distance between yourself and the rest of the world and sail off into the wide blue yonder. To this end what could be better than an island-hopping or a coastal private yacht cruise to get away from the madding crowds?
What’s that we hear you say? You don’t know how to sail? If that’s the case you’ve come to the right place because on our fully crewed yacht charters, you don’t need to be able to sail. If it’s a total holiday you want, just idle about the boat and watch the islands slides by, safe and sound and secure in your very own ‘holiday bubble’. It’s ideal for a family or a group of friends and, if you’re usually the type who holidays in a villa, we can assure you it’s Covid-safer than houses – you’re on a yacht,it doesn’t get any more private than that.
Complete yacht charters – complete with crew
Our crewed yacht charters give you the choice – Unless you are qualified yourself, you will need a skipper and our hand picked professional skippers all speak English and know the local area. You can add a first mate who doubles up as a cook in the galley, if you wish. On bigger craft you may have a bigger crew. They will do all the sailing for you and keep everything ship-shape, although if you want to learn the ropes, steer for a bit, or pull a sheet or two they’ll be delighted to show you how.
It’s all in a day’s sailing
A normal sailing day starts after breakfast when the skipper weighs anchor and casts off. Normally they’ll aim to reach the next overnight stop in the middle of the afternoon to give you time to explore. En route maybe anchor in a secluded cove for a relaxing swim stop either side of lunch – which may be taken at a hidden island taverna or served on board. It’s your charter so it’s your choice.
Dining at a distance
Meals on the boat are served al fresco. Otherwise, for the occasional lunch and evening meals we’ll point you at a taverna or restaurant we know and trust. Wherever you decide to sail local cuisine and dining under the stars in harbourside restaurants usually al fresco, is a large part of the romance of island hopping and coastal sailing. You wouldn’t want to miss it.
Choose your yacht
We have an enormous selection of craft from which to choose: monohull sailing yachts, larger sailing catamarans, traditional motor sailers – They come in a variety of sizes from vessels ideal for a family of 4 up to a party of 10 or more. When you tell us how big a party you have, your budget and where you want to go, we’ll give you a choice of options along with photographs.
Sailing Yacht – from £599 per person
If you have sailed before, you wont need convincing, its fun, its active and its as eco friendly as holidays can be.
Sailing Catamaran – from £799 per person
For those not so accustomed to sailing, catamarans offer more space and bring a touch of luxury to sailing.
Traditional Motor Sailer or Gulet – from £995 per person
If you have a bigger ‘bubble’ and like the Eastern Med’s turquoise waters, a traditional wooden motor sailer or gulet may be the perfect choice.
Motor Yacht – From £1995 Per Person
Don’t fancy being under sail? Then push the boat out, make a splash and cut a dash in a motor yacht.
Choose your itinerary
This is your charter, so you get to choose where you go (if it’s in reach!). When we speak to discuss your booking and your home port, we’ll give you a range of suggested itineraries our skippers know make a great sailing experience. But, if you prefer, you are free to plot your own course and we’ll come back to you to tell you if it’s possible in the time allowed. Teamwork makes the dream work.
Welcome to the seas where island-hopping first began. We have a range of bases throughout the islands and a huge diversity of itineraries. With over 2,000 islands, you could sail here for 20 summers and still not cover all there is to see.
The waters of the turquoise coast are spectacular and stay warm well into the autumn months. Tiny harbours hidden in small creeks, secluded coves ideal for swimming, and fantastic food in the waterfront Lokandas.
Island-hopping Adriatic style means days sailing and swimming in translucent waters and evenings spent in taverns and inns that have been there since Marco Polo’s day. The old, fortified towns along this coast date back to Venetian times – it’s living history and its great.
From Sicily to the Iconic Aeolian Isles, from Tuscanny to Elba or from Napoli & Sorento to Capri, it’s scenic and beautiful, and chic and sophisticated in equal measure – Italy is the yachting destination that has it all.
