Friends & Family Skippered Yacht Charter
Your Crew, Our Crew, & 7 Days Of Adventure
A skippered yacht charter or fully crewed charter can be an ideal holiday choice. Sailing is a brilliant holiday for a family, families together, or a group of friends. You wake up to the sound of warm water lapping against the hull of your yacht. Taking breakfast and coffee in the sunshine. Then casting off, hoisting sail and setting course for an island just over the horizon. It’s island-hopping in real style. It’s all about freedom to do as you please, swimming in deserted pristine bays and discovering new places. If you’ve got a sense of adventure it’s the only way to travel.
Where to Charter
We have a fantastic range of charter yachts in all the most popular destinations as well as some off the beaten track undiscovered places you will love.

Our Skippers & Crew
You don’t need any sailing experience to enjoy a private skippered charter, just a sense of adventure and a love of nature. Our carefully selected professional skippers will do all the navigation and sailing, though you can get involved and assist if you wish.
They are all English speakers who will have good local knowledge of the area and all the best things to see and do. You also have the option of adding another member of crew as first mate & cook, who can prepare meals, keep things ship shape as well as assisting the skipper.
Which Yacht to Choose
Your choice of yacht will depend on the size of your party and how many cabins you need, but also your budget. At the top end of the scale, catamarans offer authentic sailing, but also more spacious accommodation and lots of deck space, so ideal for larger parties of between 5 and 10 guests. Many catamarans are available with air-conditioning and en suite cabins.
Mono-hull yachts from about 32 feet up to about 65 feet are favoured for their superior and more versatile sailing characteristics. Party size can be anything from 2 guests up to 12. Some larger yachts feature en-suite cabins and air conditioning.
If sailing on a budget, well maintained older models can save you money, though if you want to try out the latest yachts, we have plenty of new yachts to choose from. A word of advice though, it is best to book early to ensure availability of your ideal choice of vessel.
Our experienced consultants will be happy to advise you on the type of yacht and sailing destination best suited to your requirements.
