Sail By The Cabin

You don’t need to book a whole yacht to enjoy a sailing holiday. Secure your own cabin with our Sail By The Cabin option, now offered at three locations with several dates for the coming year!

Sail By The Cabin is perfect for the solo adventurer, couples, or two friends sharing. Offering all the perks of a skippered holiday with the social element of flotilla, it combines everything you want from a holiday on the water.

Take a private cabin for up to two people, with one of our expert skippers as your captain, and sail with a group of other yachts as part of a flotilla . You’ll sail with the other guests on board, uncovering the best local gems and sheltered anchorages in your chosen destination.

By The Cabin itinerary options:

Korčula, Croatia – discover the stunning Dalmatian coast

Lefkas, Greece – explore the treasures of the Ionian

Tortola, British Virgin Islands – island-hop in a Caribbean paradise


With five exclusive dates, three unique flotilla itineraries on offer, call our Holiday Experts  today on 0330 332 1172, or fill out a form and our team will be in touch!
