Sailing Charters

Bareboat Charter

Bareboat charter sailing holidays deliver a private yacht adventure on the water for groups of up to 12 guests. Select from an extensive custom-built fleet of spacious catamarans and classic monohulls with the option to sail-it-yourself or hire a licensed Skipper. 

Be the master of your destiny, or at least your sailing journey, as the skipper of your own bareboat yacht charter; a truly rewarding experience for anyone who wants the challenge of guiding their own vessel over the seas while in a luxurious setting. Custom yacht choices and top destinations come together to create the ideal trip just right for you.
