Concept

Whether you are a first time sailor or have previous yachting experience, a Yachts and Friends holiday suits everyone. For novice sailors, we can provide you with one of our in-house trained skippers. We believe sailing is for everyone!

It's easy

1. Gather your family and friends

2. Choose any of our tailored routes or create your own

3. Book the perfect yacht for you. Now you can start planing your trip together with your skipper

It's affordable

We make sailing holidays accessible and affordable. From only 80€ per person and day you get a professional skipper and a full week of sailing in the Mediterranean.

Comparing that to a hotel night you get so much more value for money. You get to stay on a yacht, anchor every night in a new place and go for a swim whenever you want.

A typical Y&F sailing holiday

Gather your Gang

Pitch the idea of a relaxing sailing holiday in a beautiful destination of your choice to your family and friends. We doubt any convincing will be needed because dropping anchor in a small, secret, sunny bay where it's only you and your few favourite people has got to be one of the purest forms of freedom.
You will also have one of our skilled skippers navigating your yacht and showing you the ropes if you so wish.

Pick your Paradise

Our charters are always 7 days long. Check-in on Saturday at 5pm, sail back to base marina 6 days later on the Friday evening for check-out at 9am on Saturday morning. Find a week that works best for you, during the European winter we sail the British Virgin Islands and Thailand. During summer we recommend the Mediterranean. Pick one of our tailored routes or create your very own together with the help of your skipper.

Choose Your Yacht

Choose the perfect yacht for you, either a spacious catamaran with air conditioning or a monohull for faster sailing. After you have made your reservation and paid the first instalment we will contact you and try to find the best suitable skipper for you. We also highly recommend adding a hostess to cook up some culinary delights aboard your yacht throughout the week.

A Typical day At Sea

Marina
We recommend arriving at your base marina around 3pm on Saturday. Meet your skipper and hostess who will guide you through the check-in of the yacht. Pay a refundable deposit to be paid back to you at the end of the charter. Depending on the destination and route, either set sail the first day or stay at the marina overnight to sail out early the next morning.
At Sea
Wake up with the sounds of the ocean and smells of freshly made breakfast. After a refreshing swim in emerald waters, begin cruising to the next hidden gem: a secluded bay, secret caves, volcanic islands or bustling towns. With the sounds of your favourite playlist in the background. Spend the day exploring, feasting and relaxing all to your hearts content.

I'd describe a Yachts and Friends holiday as the opportunity to live a different life for a week, a life you've always wanted to live, at sea.
