About Us

Sailing Holidays Yacht Charter Division

With hundreds of glitzy websites, bustling for space on search result pages, it really is difficult to sort the trustworthy from the undependable. After all, it is easy to build a flashy website (or print a glossy brochure...) quite a lot tougher to deliver an amazing sailing holiday.

We are the specialist Yacht Charter division at Sailing Holidays Ltd, the largest independent sailing holiday company in the UK. We love sailing and so know exactly what goes into an outstanding holiday. We own and run our own yachts, as well as working with local yacht owners, all sourced from a select pool of suppliers throughout the Mediterranean.

Real people who love sailing (and more importantly holidays...)

Sure the other stuff is important – great boats, in awesome locations, with great sailing – but we believe our superiority lies in our people. From the moment you speak to someone on the telephone or via email you are talking to someone who has worked and been on our sailing holidays. They know first-hand what the boats are like, which areas will suit you best and even what the weather might be like! Out on holiday the supporting staff have unrivalled knowledge of the areas and their yachts so you are in safe hands.

Bareboats from the specialists...

Sailing Holidays has been running flotillas in the Greek Islands for over 40 years and the welcomes still haven’t waned...the locals are familiar with our team and are more welcoming than ever. Barrie & Heidi who own the company began as Skipper and Hostess in the 1980's and so know first-hand what goes into making a fantastic holiday.

40 years later the Sailing Holidays team and fleet have grown a little. What is important to us is ensuring we still provide the same personal touch to everyone who comes sailing with us. Be that on an independent yacht charter, flotilla holiday or luxury skippered catamaran! If you are keen to read more, meet our team or see what our customers have to say...
