ISLAND SAILING

The original name for a new generation of yachting.

Island Sailing, a British company in London and one of the most recognisable and respected names in yacht charter.

We offer outstanding yacht charters, the best sailing destinations and the widest choice of thoughtfully selected modern yachts and catamarans.

Our knowledge of these stunning yachts and the personal experiences gained sailing in dream destinations allows us to organise exceptional and exclusive private sailing yacht charters, accessible to all.

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

“The ultimate value of Island Sailing for our customers is our people. It is their knowledge, expertise and passion that ensures you get the best yacht charter experience imaginable.  We know from experience what makes a great yacht charter; from the yachts, to the destination, the sailing area and the crews and so all of these elements are carefully chosen and tailor-made for you.”

 – Jonathan Hope

SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL

Our yacht charters our thoughtfully tailor-made to minimise negative impacts on the environment and maximise upon local economies. We like to keep things local. We ensure the local maritime and tourist economies are supported where the yachts we offer are based. Having community involvement and embracing local knowledge, skills, products and services offers visitors a more genuine traveler experience whilst directly contributing to the local economy.

ECO FRIENDLY ESCAPES

The sailing yachts we offer are the most environmentally friendly way to travel and explore. We can help you source local, organic produce and our environmental policies and initiatives can help you take control of the environmental impact of your yacht charter. We are passionate sailors who strive to look after the waters and wildlife where we sail through our own actions and by helping to educate others. We are proud to support effective grass-roots conservation initiatives to protect the environment, restore nature and safeguard against climate change.

MARINE CONSERVATION

To provide tangible assistance to local environmental projects, Island Sailing has formed a partnership with the Conservation Collective to help fund some of the vital work its organisations are carrying out in the Mediterranean. With marine projects in Greece, Italy and Croatia, this charity which specialises in funding grassroots conservation projects, seemed the ideal fit for Island Sailing which has a long-held ethos of encouraging sustainable tourism and local initiatives.

Charterers are not only encouraged to donate but also to get involved in an active way, by reporting dolphin and whale sightings, volunteering, or by choosing to eat non-native fish and shellfish to help rebalance local ecosystems.  Conservation Collective initiatives in the Mediterranean are also working to protect turtles, dolphins and rare Mediterranean monk seals, raising awareness of the location of Posidonia meadows and fishing plastic from the sea.
