Skippered Sailing Yacht Charter

Perfect for those with little experience or no certification to bareboat charter, our skippered charters give you the freedom to do whatever you want. Whether it be swimming, snorkelling, taking a siesta under the shade or taking the helm, it’s up to you. Our skippers are RYA qualified yacht sailing instructors too, with experience in teaching RYA Learn to Sail courses in the Ionian. Not simply your onboard guide, they’ll be keen to tutor anyone with a desire to learn sailing. All those would be sailors here’s your chance!! Next year you’ll want to return for your first bareboat sailing holiday.

Previous sailing experience is not required although a willingness to assist in the handling of the boat will be necessary at times.

“Thank you for making our holiday last week such a wonderful one. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect holiday. Thanks to your local knowledge and careful consideration we sailed, saw and swam in the most perfect and beautiful places. Your organisation and attention to detail just made everything so easy and effortless from the moment we arrived in Kefalonia. We completely relaxed and refuelled and felt that you tailored everything perfectly to our abilities, the weather and what we said we liked and wanted from our holiday. Your beautiful boat was brilliantly equipped and immaculately presented. We really couldn’t have asked for more.”
