an Introduction to yacht charters in the mediterranean
Sailing holidays are for everyone, that's why we're delighted to have made this amazing experience a reality for thousands of first-timers over the years. Our sailing holidays tend to be more about the 'holiday' than the sailing. With hot weather, light winds, flat seas and no tides, it is a relaxing and non-challenging way to see idyllic islands, lively villages and peaceful harbours of the Mediterranean as you've never seen them before. No experience is required, so now it's your turn...
Think of a yacht as a villa that moves - it has bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, lounge and outdoor area just like any other accommodation. The obvious difference is that this villa floats and moves from island to island or bay to bay every night thanks to your own private skipper or you can sail it yourself if you're qualified.
Generally, sailing holidays in the Mediterranean are typically more about the 'holiday' than the 'sailing', with average sailing legs around two to three hours. When you're not behind the wheel, you're swimming, sunbathing, eating and drinking, snorkelling, hiring scooters, relaxing in hammocks, swinging into the sea, going out for dinner, having a drink as the sun goes down, or enjoying the wind guide you along. It's safe, relaxing, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Why you should go on a sailing holiday
Sailing in the Mediterranean is a wonderful experience. With hot weather, light winds, flat seas and no tides, it is a relaxing and non-challenging way to see idyllic islands, lively villages and peaceful harbours of the Mediterranean as you've never seen them before.
There is a huge amount of variety that suits almost every person. Meander the short distances from island to island, swim from the back of the yacht, dine alfresco on board, discover shoreside restaurants, explore coves, inlets and islands, and spend nights either moored in prime waterfront locations or under the stars in an quiet bay. It's all up to you.
We Make Sailing Easy and Accessible
For too long a sailing holiday has been viewed as too exclusive or overly difficult to arrange. That's what we're here for. Enjoying a sailing holiday with Seamaster is readily accessible and easy, we take care of everything for you. We help you pick the best sailing destination according to your tastes, the best yacht according to your requirements, and put together the best itinerary according to your preferences.
You simply need to turn up at the airport at this end and we can arrange your flights, transfers, yacht and, if required, a skipper to sail the yacht for you.
On the practical side, on arrival at the airport you are transferred to the base where your yacht awaits (no further than 60 minutes, but often far less). You will be met and shown to your yacht, and a one-on-one briefing will take place to familiarise you with the your yacht. You will also meet your skipper, if applicable, and you can go over your itinerary with him.
As soon as a small amount of paperwork is completed and you've visited the supermarket to get some supplies, you're free to sail off into a week (or more) of relaxing cruising.
