Croatia has a very special place in the heart of Seamaster, we have spent many a holiday sailing this wonderful country and look forward to sharing her secrets with you. Picture lively character towns interspersed with quiet harbours and isolated bays, beautiful Venetian architecture, perfectly clear water, gentle sailing winds and more islands than you could visit in a year. Could Croatia be the perfect sailing destination? Quite possibly… Yes, it’s that good!
Greece is a wonderful place to charter, with tremendous variety across the sailing areas. For a combined 25 years, the team at Seamaster have provided thousands of guests the very best sailing experience in Greece – whether it’s discovering a different island everyday, swimming in isolated bays, exploring iconic villages, sampling delicious local cuisine in an authentic restaurant or relaxing in a quayside Greek taverna.
It is impossible to generalise about our selection of sailing regions in Italy. The experiences on offer are as diverse and unique as the people themselves. Tuscans, Neapolitans, Sicilians and Sardinians all form a rich tapestry on which modern day Italy is shaped. A sailing holiday to Italy reflects this, with each destination offering a very different character and beauty for each sailor to discover.
The Turkish coastline is wonderful for a sailing holiday that explores a fantastic tapestry of culture and history as much as the serene bays, idyllic harbours and isolated traditional restaurants that solely cater to the passing nautical trade. Throw in a bit of adventure, loggerhead turtles, authentic Turkish cuisine and cheap shopping, you won’t want to leave!
Our sailing holidays to Spain focus on the lovely Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea that include the iconic Majorca, Ibiza and Menorca. Also discover the lesser known Formentera and Cabrera Islands on sailing holiday that promises to show you a side the these island you’ve never seen before.
In terms of countries, Croatia and Greece are the undisputed heavyweights of Mediterranean yacht charter. For good reason, as they are wonderful sailing locations. Our most popular destinations are the Dalmatians Islands in Croatia, and two Greece areas; the Ionian and Saronic Islands.
Families with children of all ages love sailing holidays. It’s safe, fun, exciting, relaxing and stimulating for young minds. No matter their age, kids will never be bored, with time spent on the water, off the water and in the water. Our favourite family destinations have short sailing legs, easy sailing conditions, hot weather, and plenty to do and see on land as well as on the water.
There are many components that come together to make a sailing destination ideal for novice sailors; the wind conditions, access to onshore facilities, ease of finding moorings and sailing legs that aren’t too challenging. Below are our favourite sailing destinations for novice sailors.
Many of our sailing areas have fantastic nightlife, which is particularly fun when you can sail from island to island, experiencing the unique character that each have to offer. The Dalmatians are case in point; visit Brac, Hvar, Vis, Trogir, and Split all in one week. Also, don’t forget that great nightlife doesn’t always happen at night! Here are our favourites.
A yacht charter is the perfect means to escaping mass tourism and beating your own path. On a yacht you can reach destinations that are otherwise inaccessible to those on land, including secluded bays, uninhabited islands, and small villages away from the hordes. Here are our favourites.
Early and late season offer fantastic deals for sailing in the Mediterranean sun, and if you select the right destination, you’ll enjoy conditions better than peak summer in the United Kingdom! Here our our favourite sailing destinations for early or late summer sailing. Bear in mind that these relate to the weather and not the cheapest deals – Croatia, for example suffers from less consistent weather and so is very cheap early and late season.
We would be remiss in thinking that every person out there was looking for a holiday where sailing isn’t a priority. We know that sailing certainly is a priority for many of our wonderful guests, so here’s a list of our favourite destinations for getting some serious sailing in!

All this without having to pack and repack. It's a wonderful experience.
