Sailing over shimmering waters to destinations rich in history and natural beauty: what more could anyone want in a boating holiday? Famous sites from antiquity, white sand beaches painted on an azure ocean, quaint villages overflowing with cultural flavors, and culinary delights you will hunger for.
With its huge diversity of travel experiences, the Mediterranean has something to offer everyone who likes to go sailing. Italy, Greece and Croatia are the most popular cruising destinations, while there's much to enjoy about sailing in the Balearic Islands, Turkey and the South of France. All are covered in our comprehensive guide to Mediterranean yacht charters.
With all the great destinations on offer, choosing a charter boat in the Mediterranean can be complicated, even confusing. For smooth sailing, it is essential that you sail with an experienced and reputable boat operating company. During more than 20 years in the charter business, we have developed a network of only the best operators - people who we know can be relied on to take care of you, our client. We will match the right yacht from the best operator to your budget, comfort requirements and boat-handling experience.
Our team members have spent a lot of time sailing in the Mediterranean, checking out the boats on offer and the way they are managed. And of course that gives us first-hand experience of the destinations too, valuable knowldge that we want to share.
In the Mediterranean, the suitably-able sailor finds bareboat sailing and boat handling quite straightforward. For extra leisure time, there's always the option of adding a skipper, who takes responsibility for the boat and getting you to where you want to go.
Alternatively, charter fully-crewed, engaging a cook as well as skipper for the ulitimate in relaxation. Even experienced sailors often prefer to hire a crew, which we carefully select in consultation with our operators. Your hired crew not only take care of all the work, but are also willing local guides. They'll recommend the best places to see and best things to do en route, and get you up close to the culture and lifestyles in the places you will visit.
When enlisting our help to organise your charter in the Mediterranean -or anywhere else - you pay no more for our service.

A Mediterranean sailing charter is the ultimate yachting adventure for weekend sailors. An experience that’s very accessible, but keep in mind that in Europe there’s also a formal requirement for chartering bareboat.
