Bareboat yacht charter

Sailing holidays

Your boat. Your path. You lead the way.

With no one to tell you what to do, where to go or when to get there, a bareboat charter sailing holiday is your chance to explore new cruising grounds at your own pace. Squeeze in as many overnight stops and daytime anchorages as you like, or take your time and make the most of every destination on your itinerary. On a bareboat charter holiday you have the freedom to discover the world’s best sailing destinations on your own terms.

Sail one of our suggested itineraries or strike out on your own in search of adventure. Relax and hire a skipper to take the helm, or even book a chef to prepare delicious regional delicacies in your own galley. It doesn’t get any better than a bareboat charter sailing holiday.
