Types of Yacht Charter

With many charter types at your disposal, it’s essential to know the key differences between each to help us guide you to the perfect option for your group. Each charter type will offer a range of yachts at different price points. We offer five charter types: cabin, flotilla, bareboat, skippered and crewed.

Cabin Charter

Make new friends and experience the luxury of a fully crewed charter at a fraction of the cost without needing to gather a whole group to fill the boat. This option is perfect for solo travellers and couples.

Flotilla Charter

For those who want a little more company – a flotilla is a group of yachts sailing together, accompanied by a skipper and hostess on the lead yacht. This is an ideal option for families with children.

Bareboat Charter

Enjoy the freedom of sailing and be the captain of your own ship, granted you have the necessary certification. Independent, private, and cost-efficient, because you won’t need to pay a skipper and crew.

Skippered Charter

Sit back, relax, and leave the sailing to a professional. A skipper will be appointed to sail the yacht and manage the route according to your preferences, allowing you and your group to relax and enjoy the holiday.

Crewed Charter

  This option offers you the ultimate luxury experience as you enjoy five-star service from the best crews in the business, ensuring you’re fully taken care of for sailing, catering and entertainment.

Thank you for helping us to organise our first charter holiday. We had a fantastic time in Greece! It was such a different holiday, so relaxing, so beautiful, and we all really enjoyed it. Our skipper was brilliant and took us to amazing places.
