How to Book a Yacht Charter Holiday

Step 1 – Gather your group.

The Big Sail is perfect for groups of friends, couples, or families – each boat can sleep up to 12 guests, and we can provide multiple yachts for larger groups. Whether there’s 30 of you for a big birthday bash you’ll never forget, or just a small group wanting a relaxing break – let us prepare the perfect sailing holiday, attentively tailored to your needs.

Step 2 – Choose a time and a place

Charters usually start on a Saturday and are one week long, but multiple week bookings are possible and itineraries can be tailored accordingly. The beauty of sailing is that your transport and accommodation are one, meaning the list of possible destinations is truly infinite. Some of the most popular destinations we sailed to last summer were Split and Dubrovnik in Croatia, and Lefkas in Greece.
