Why The British Isles Are Best For Private Yacht Charter

There are a number of reasons why the British Isles are the best for private yacht charter in Europe. To begin with, the UK has one of the longest history’s in the world for sailing. This heritage is clear to see around the coastline, none more-so than in the Solent, our primary yacht charter base.

The sea not only physically shapes our country but being on an island has naturally given us a sense of adventure. With 12,429 km of coastline it exceeds that of even India and Brazil! Viewing these kilometres of coastline is often said to be best done from the sea.

The reason for our extensive coastline is that it is made up of coves, bays, fishing towns and islands creating wriggling lines and secluded spots. Some of these are only accessible by yacht. With 136 uninhabited islands you’d be forgiven for thinking we were talking about the South Pacific but Britain has endless amounts to explore for any sailor.

From the rugged, Celtic north where fishing villages still shape the lives of the locals, to the warm southern Isles of Scilly, a favourite for British staycation-ers, there is something for everyone.

Yacht Charter Destinations

A private yacht charter to explore the British coastline is enchanting. Starting in the Solent and sailing down the Jurassic coast to Cornwall – the birth place of legendary King Arthur. Or heading straight to the yellow sands and clear waters of the Channel Islands to experience a combination of British and French culture.

Or looking for crisp air and untouched coastline – the beautiful deep waters of Scotland team with fish and there are beaches to rival the Mediterranean (although possibly not as warm!). A crewed yacht charter means that you can sail past the isles of Mull and Skye and absorb the dramatic landscapes and beautiful wildlife including cute puffins and majestic eagles.

A private yacht crew also means that you can go at your own pace, eat meals at your leisure cooked by your incredible chef, and there’s even WiFi onboard for when everyone just wants a bit of “me time” in their cabins.
