Crewed Yacht Charter

Crewed YACHT CHARTER

With a crewed yacht charter the focus is all about your enjoyment. Your experienced skipper and 2 crew are on board to give you the best yacht charter experience possible.

We’ll take you to those special places, bays away from the crowds or to a picturesque marina. As qualified sailing Instructors, we can teach you as much or as little as you want. You can be hands on sailing the yacht or if sitting back on deck relaxing is what you’re after, that’s what you’ll get. Simply let us know what you want from your perfect sailing yacht charter.

Your skipper Jim Dobie

Throughout his career Jim has sailed around the world two times. This includes all the oceans including the mighty Southern Ocean, and North pacific where he was hit with hurricane strength winds.

He has led teams of amateur yachtsmen and women through some of the worlds toughest conditions and has led them to achieve their dreams whilst facing incredible challenges. Helping ordinary people doing extraordinary things!

“I am delighted to be able to welcome you on board, to enjoy my passion for sailing and to discover the beautiful waters of the UK! Come and join us on Windweaver. The crew and I will ensure you get the most out of your yacht charter and have a wonderful and memorable experience.”
