GETTING THERE

 

Can you arrange transit from the airport or city center to the marina?

Yes of course we can. Please let us know in advance and we can arrange a private car/van for large groups or taxi for smaller groups.

All yachts return to base marina late Friday afternoon with checkout at 9am Saturday. You may do checkout on Friday evening if that suits you.

 

 

BOOKING & PAYMENT

 

I have a group of friends, what is the minimum numbers required to rent a whole yacht to ourselves?

You can find some viable options from 3 Couples to 5 couples. For groups, earlier the booking the better as yachts go quick especially for peak season.

 

Yacht vs. Cabin?

If you have a large group, say 3 couples plus that would be ideal to fill your own yacht. The price per person can be better when booking a full boat together and you can be sure to know everyone beforehand. Also you can get luxury yachts from tailor made offers we send you.

Cabins bookings are a great way to make new friends. You will be grouped with like-minded people. Also is easier, you don’t need to chase and organise all your friends, just book your cabin and they can book to join you when they are ready. If your friends book their cabins later we will always endeavour to group you in the same yacht. Just make us aware of it at the time of the booking.

 

Is it possible to book a spot on a boat if I am traveling by myself?

No, we dont have this option

 

How do I reserve a yacht or cabin?

All booking are done online on our internet site or just contact us directly via mail.

The deposit is paid the same day, prior to departure, and it is fully refunded back when the yacht is returned undamaged.Deposit for a whole yacht/boat bookings is between €1,500 and €2,500 per yacht.

How much time do we spend on the yacht each day?

Sea sickness can be managed. Skippers carry seasick prevention tablets. Just let the skipper know and he/she will look after you. Please note that avoiding acidic foods and drinks and not missing sleep can help prevent seasickness.

I don’t know how to sail, do I need sailing experience, I have never been on a yacht before, is this for me?

It does not matter if you have never been on a boat before. Experience is not necessary. That is what the skippers are for. You just have to relax and enjoy yourself. And if you are keen to learn the skippers are more than happy to teach you.

 

What are our obligations regarding skipper?

Your skipper will inform you about all about safety, so listen to them while on the boat. Make sure you treat your skipper well and help out whenever you are needed! The skippers are NOT regarded as an employee. Please treat them as a friend on the boat on vacation with you and your friends.
