Whole boat for sole use

The complete yacht for you!

If you prefer to go sailing with people you know why not think about chartering a yacht with a skipper? Our RYA Instructors are only to happy to offer guidance or RYA tuition - the choice is yours!

Our option of sole boat for sole use is obviously a little more expensive than if you join a group – but you are assured of individual tuition to meet your needs, and if your group consists of 4 or more friends then its cheaper than booking separately!

We are also happy for families to join us and have no minimum age limits, but please note the minimum ages for RYA certificates to be awarded. The only restrictions are if you are doing an RYA course - in this case there is a maximum of 5 persons on board

We offer courses or skippered charter on all our RYA school yacht, and also have available larger yachts to charter if you prefer – how much you do is up to yourselves. All the skipper/instructor is there to do is make sure that you have a great time, and if you wish to leave with some RYA qualifications that you complete the course.

We are happy to teach a couple, or up to 5 friends – the choice is yours. You can do any course from Competent Crew and Day Skipper up to Yachtmaster on one of our sailing yachts, or Helmsman and Day Skipper up to Yachtmaster on our Motor Cruiser. Other more tailored courses are always available including: boat handling, sail trim, using electronics – the choice is yours!

Where can we sail?

If you don't want a course we offer cruises in the summer months in the:

  • Baltic (Sweden, Finland, Russia and Estonia) on our Dufour 40e
  • Western Mediterranean (for France, Corsica, Sardinia and the Balearics)

And in the Canaries - all year around.

There will be plenty of time to stop for a relaxing swim in secluded bays away from the beaten track, take a day out to hire a car and explore the island (car hire is not included but we can help arrange it for you), or even go to the largest water theme park in Europe!

Slightly different?

Also available are Day Skipper and Yachtmaster Theory courses that are just for you. We can offer just the theory week, or you can join us for two weeks and sail during the second week.

The maximum number we normally teach is 4 clients – but you may wish to have more individual tuition, which means you can set your own pace.

We can even run Day Skipper and Yachtmaster Theory courses together if this suits your requirements in our purpose built air-conditioned classroom which is a short walk from the marina. Unlike other school we even include accommodation in our standard prices so there are no hidden extras!

You can rest assured that will do all we can to make sure that it’s a rewarding vacation for you all.
