What Is The Big Sail?

The Big Sail offers a fully bespoke yacht charter service; tailoring sailing holidays for you, your friends and family. We will organise an unforgettable experience for any amount of people, on any number of yachts and in any destination!

We’ll recommend a suitable yacht to accommodate your group size and budget, and we’ll also create a tailor-made itinerary for our skippered bookings. For bareboat yacht charters we’ll include itinerary advice as well as some restaurant suggestions for some of the the popular destinations along your chosen route.

Once you have enquired with our team of experienced yacht charter experts, you can relax knowing that we’ll put together a trip that meets whatever your needs and budget might be. Then you can expect to be whisked away for an amazing holiday guided by one of our incredible skippers for a skippered charter, or sailing your own yacht on a bareboat charter if you are qualified yourself – it’s completely up to you!

Step 1 – Gather a group of your Best Friends.

The Big Sail is for big groups of friends – each boat sleeps 6-10 guests, and we can provide multiple yachts. Whether there’s 30 of you for a big birthday party you’ll never forget, or 8 of you just celebrating your graduation from uni – let us prepare the perfect holiday, attentively tailored to your needs. We can still accommodate a group smaller than 6 people – just get in touch!
