I don’t have any sailing experience, is that ok?

Not a problem, there is the option to hire an experienced sail guide for your bareboat charter

We don't want to cook do you have any pre made meal options?

To maintain the freshness of the meals all our meals will need some preparation. From our experience, good quality food can’t be pre-made and doesn’t keep well. Our meals are specially designed for easy preparation on a boat and keep preparation to a minimum. 

How should I pack?

Pack light. Space is limited on board. Ideally, pack using soft luggage can be folded down and stowed. Hard luggage takes up a lot of space which is limited on a yacht. There is storage at the marina for any bags you don’t want to bring for your trip.

Are there, jellyfish?

Yes, they are very rare, but your safety is our primary concern. It is crucial whenever you enter the water to wear a stinger suit they can be rented through our order form.

What is your refund policy?

If you request a refund within 24 hours of booking, you will receive a full refund. If you request a refund after 24 hours, no refunds are given. There are no refunds if you book within twenty days of the trip commencing. Purchases are transferable. If you cannot travel due to government COVID restrictions, we will provide you with a full refund. Our full policy can be found here

How to book an entire yacht

Booking for a whole yacht is done by emailing us and coordinating with our booking team. We do not split payments and will take payment from the lead booker. This person will be responsible for organising payments, filling out the crew list details and acting as the main contact upon arrival and departure. The lead booker is responsible for making sure payments are made on time.


You must respect the marina rules when in port. There are shower and bathroom facilities at all marinas which are free to use for everyone on the trip.

Standard of Services

While we aim to provide the highest level of services, living on a yacht has some limitations. Some components of the holiday (such as wi-fi, bathrooms, air-conditioning, refrigeration etc.) will differ from the standard of service that you may experience while at home.

Yacht Deposit

Upon arrival, the yacht charter company requires a deposit to cover additional cleaning, loss, or damage caused to the boat. This will be refunded (less any sums deducted for damages) at the end of your trip.
