Laid-back Life

A Dream Yacht Charter by-the-cabin yacht charter is the ultimate holiday, as you are transported to another world leaving all the pressures of life behind you.

As your skipper navigates your luxury catamaran through turquoise waters, you will adopt a more laid-back pace – one that allows you to follow the rhythms of the sea and go wherever the winds take you.

It is the ideal holiday and is suited to everyone, sailors and non-sailors. Every family member will enjoy the personalised service on board your crewed luxury yacht, with some taking up to 14 guests.

How Does It Work?

With a by-the-cabin yacht charter you simply hire your own comfortable, air-conditioned double cabin with private en suite bathroom on one of our luxury catamarans, just as you would on a cruise ship.

However, instead of a thousand new acquaintances, you’ll just have a few new friends on board – people who also enjoy being outdoors, snorkelling, kayaking and discovering new places around every corner.

A by-the-cabin charter really is the ultimate laid-back holiday, where you can escape the world and it’s just you and a few like-minded guests on an adventure of a lifetime – or maybe it’s your family and friends.

No Sailing Experience Required

On a by-the-cabin yacht charter you don’t need to know how to sail – you can relax and leave the sailing to us! It’s up to you how much you do. You can kick back and enjoy the stunning scenery while your professional crew do all the work for you, or you can take a turn hoisting the sails and steering the boat if you want to get involved.

Whichever you choose, enjoy whiling away the time with the wind in your hair and maybe indulge in a spot of snorkelling as well. The catamaran’s shallow draft means it can access private anchorages and special snorkelling spots that large cruise ships can only dream of sharing with their passengers.

Floating Restaurant

With a by-the-cabin charter, you can even relax at mealtimes, as you have your very own on board chef who will prepare your meals using the freshest local produce.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is fully catered, all cooked fresh by your chef who will create delicious meals, carefully selected to suit your tastes.

The chef will even cook up your fresh-caught seafood if you are lucky enough to catch a fish off the back of the catamaran!


Everything’s Included

All bed linen is provided on your by-the-cabin charter. Towels and beach towels are also included, meaning more room in your suitcase for the important things – like swimwear and books!

Watersports equipment is freely available on board – enjoy snorkelling amongst the marine life or grab a kayak and explore the beaches, coves and inlets.

All diesel, fuel and water for the yacht is included, as well as insurance, so you can relax with nothing to worry about.

Sail Around The World
