Skippered Yacht Charter – Solent

Family Holidays, Sailing around the Solent

Head out for a weekend or longer on a family holiday with a difference.

If you already have the sailing experience to go it alone then just head to our Bareboat Charter Section for info on our fleet of yachts.

If you don’t know how to sail then our skipper will give you all the yacht sailing instruction you need and take you to all the best places. Think of it much like a ski guide.

Offering the best of both worlds you have the peace of mind knowing there is an expert pair of hands onboard but then in the evenings you are free to do what you want as a family. If you prefer we can arrange for the skipper to leave the boat each evening and sleep ashore.

You can decide on the places to visit and how much time you spend sailing. If you want a day alongside to explore then this can be worked in, we are totally flexible but using our experience we can understand what you want out of your sailing holiday and do the very best to match it.
