John is a co-founder of Seamaster Yachting. He is an experienced sailor, having owned yachts since his teenage years, but also loves fishing and diving. His last sailing holiday was to the Saronic Islands.
An all round top bloke, Mark is currently developing his sailing resume with various holidays to the Med that he calls "research". He's got a good thing going on.
The one week trip we took from Portisco Sardinia at the end of June in a Bavaria 40 was exactly what I had hoped for - the skipper read our preferences perfectly (and helped by easily navigating our way away from over expensive mooring and dining alternatives ) - the boat was spot on - good clean new sails and hull with all the kit in good working order - an excellent - beautiful sailing area - unspoiled bays for overnight anchorage and little night time winds with fairly sure 10-15 kt day breezes for calm easy safe and memorable sailing.

Trust | Quality | Service | Affordability
We are a British company, with British values and British accountability. We welcome clients from around the English speaking world, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Canada, who wish to deal with a local english-speaking agent with your best interests in mind.
We do not believe in owning and running our own fleet of yachts, as this creates an obvious vested interest and bias towards certain boats, no matter what condition they are in, or how old they are. Rather, as an expert yacht charter agency we 'cherry-pick' the best companies to work with, or not work with, as the case may be. At the brutal end of the scale, if quality or service from a charter company consistently slip, we are able to simply stop using them. This creates genuine influence.
This structure also allows our partners to concentrate on what they do best, which is look after their own 'hardware', while we focus on providing sales, marketing and expert advice that guides you to the locations and yachts that suits your unique requirements best.
Our goal is to provide consistent service and quality across all our Mediterranean locations to ensure that the only thing you have to worry about is where your next drink is coming from. We work alongside reputable yacht charter companies, skippers and wider partners that we trust, and that respect us as representing your best interests.
We have dual objectives
To provide expert unbiased advice and information in order to offer the best holiday possible for each and every person, at the right price.
Make sailing accessible to everyone by cutting out the jargon, removing the complexity and keeping costs down.
