The Yachts

We have the widest choice of latest model and brand new and award winning yachts and catamarans. The yachts range in size from 34 feet with 3 cabins to 56 feet with 6 cabins to suit couples, families and groups of friends. 

We only offer the latest yachts from the world leaders including Beneteau, Jeanneau, Bavaria, Dufour and Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot and Bali catamarans. All the yachts are renouned for excellent build quality, performance and specifications, ideal for Mediterranean sailing.

Monohull yacht or catamaran? 'Normal' monohull yachts are up to half the cost to charter and provide, what to many, is a more classic sailing experience.The advantages of a catamaran are lots of extra space above and below deck and, often a flatter, more sedate sailing experience. Catamarans often have more features like air conditioning, more bathrooms and extra fridges. As there are far less catamarans you need to book them early.

Choosing the best yacht for you. What size yacht? As well as how much you wish to spend, it depends on how many people and how many cabins and bathrooms you need. 

How many cabins? Most cabins have double beds and some 4 and 5 cabin yachts also have a cabin with twin bunks. Some yachts have an extra bed/berth as the saloon seat converts into a bed. On certain yachts over 48 feet and all of the catamarans there is a separate 'skipper's' cabin in the bow of the boat reached via the deck so they can access their cabin at night by a seperate entrance from the guest accommodation inside the yacht. Your skipper will need a cabin. 

How many bathrooms? The yachts have between 1 and 5 bathrooms with a WC, washbasin and shower. Most yachts over 40 feet in length have 2 or more, often at least one of these is en-suite, usually to the biggest cabin. Most of the catamarans have 4 guest bathrooms, all en-suite plus one in the skipper's cabin.

Your Skipper

All the skippers are friendly, expert sailors with lots of knowledge about the local destinations to make sure you get the most out of your holiday. If you would like to learn to sail your skipper can get you involved with sailing the yacht as much or as little as you like. The skippers are all British or Europeans who speak English and enjoy sharing their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for sailing whilst making sure you have a fun and relaxing sailing holiday.

Your skipper stays on the yacht and will need their own cabin so you’ll need to make sure you choose a yacht with enough sleeping space for you and your skipper. Your skipper will help and advise about provisioning your yacht both at the start and throughout the charter. When hiring a skipper you are responsible for their food. You simply need to include them in your plans for food and drinks on board.  In the evening you can choose to take them with you or just cover their inexpensive meal. All the skippers are extremely professional and personable and provide discreet and unobtrusive assistance throughout your yacht charter.  Our clients find that their skipper makes their holiday something really extra special as they become welcome additions on the yachts they sail.

Mooring & Fuel

 

In Croatia you will generally pay to moor each night in a marina, harbour or sometimes on a mooring buoy. However, flights are generally less to Croatia than to Greece. There are also some bays where you can moor for free and take your dinghy ashore. The cost of mooring fees at the first class marina yacht bases at the start and end of your charter are included in the yacht price and for the rest of your holiday mooring fees depend on the size of the yacht and location, but for a typical route you can pay between £200 - £400 per week. The benefits include a guaranteed mooring space which you can often book in advance plus power and water and other great facilities. 

Fuel is fairly inexpensive and generally costs between £200-£140 per week, depending on the size of your yacht. Catamarans use around £100 - £180 per week, more if you use your air conditioning a lot.
