Skippered Yacht Charter

Our skippered yacht charters are perfect for those who are new to sailing or want sit back, relax and let someone else do the hard work! Whether you want to explore the Solent in a relaxed style or take part in a local race, our professional skippers and yacht instructors will make sure you have a great time on the water, whatever your sailing experience.

Benefits of Skippered Yacht Charter

  • Sit back and relax without the responsibilities of skippering yourself
  • No sailing experience neccessary
  • Celebrate a family event, special occasion, run a company sailing day or just have a fun day out on the water with your mates!
  • Try something new from night sailing, channel sailing or even a relaxed race in the ISC classes of one of the South Coast Regattas
  • Get a guided tour of the Solent and the surrounding area
  • Get expert guidance and refresh tips if you've not sailed for a while.

A Unique Experience Just For You

We will discuss with you what you would like to get out of your yacht charter with us and make sure that we provide you with a skipper who is a good match for you, your group and your requirements.

Your Skipper will contact you prior to the start of your charter to ensure that they have a proper understanding of your objectives. Our Skippers can be flexible depending on what you'd like from them from overseeing the yacht, to ensuring that every person on board has an active role to play and explaining the finer points of sailing and navigation to those who are interested, to quietly sailing the yacht for you while you and your crew sit back and enjoy the sailing experience.

Full or Part Time Skipper Options

If you just want a helping hand to get started or are not familiar with the Solent and would like some local knowledge of where to go, why not have one of our Skippers on board for a day or two and then continue with a bareboat charter for the rest of your sailing holiday.
