The Yachts & Destinations

Dream Yacht Charter has taken the decision to source its fleet from a wide range of world-class manufacturers and we pride ourselves on being able to offer real choice to our ownership partners.

Part of the joy of Dream Yacht Ownership is having the opportunity to experience a wide variety of vessels in an unmatched variety of locations.

Our philosophy has been to establish a large number of comparatively small sailing bases retaining their unique identities, throughout the world. This allows us to maintain very high standards, keeping a tight control on all yacht maintenance. Having purchased more than 400 new yachts of all sizes and hull-types over the past three years, Dream Yacht Charter now has the largest, most varied fleet in the world. Truly something for everyone.

About Dream Yacht Charter

Dream Yacht Charter is now the world’s largest sailing company and is now named as the No 1 charter company worldwide. In 15 years, we have grown our fleet from just 15 yachts into a market-leading fleet of more than 1,000 Dream Yachts. We have also been opening new bases every year.

Dream Yacht Charter was built-up by marine professionals and continues to be run by marine professionals. From the most senior, to the most junior, Dream Yacht Charter employees truly understand the yacht charter Industry.

The Dream Yacht Charter Experience


A charter yacht purchase from Dream Yacht Charter is unlike any other. It’s a five-year relationship, and we believe that the right support at each stage is crucial for a successful partnership.

The Dream Yacht experience starts with one of our yacht sales experts from Dream Yacht Sales, who will listen carefully to your particular requirements and lifestyle and guide you through the best individual choices available to you.

During your ownership program with Dream Yacht Charter, your day-to-day contact will be with our dedicated Owner Care team, who are always available to assist you with the booking of your holidays. The base manager, where your yacht is moored, is always on hand and your yacht’s maintenance log is available for you to inspect at any time.

Our Owner Care team will contact you a year before your contract matures to discuss your end of contract options. No matter whether you decide to keep your yacht, trade it in and continue with a new program, or sell and move on to something new, the Owner Care and Sales team will be there to provide 5-star support and back-up all the way.

Live Your Dreams!

Dream Yacht Ownership is the most affordable way to explore the world’s favourite sailing destinations without the ongoing hard work and expense of traditional ownership.

Our varied choice of purchase programs also allows you to benefit from up to 12 weeks a year sailing on either your own or a similar yacht in a different Dream Yacht destination (upgrade options available). While under management by Dream Yacht Charter for usually 5.5 years, you enjoy all the benefits associated with yacht ownership, but without any of the running costs and uncertainty.

At the end of the Program you can choose to

  • Keep the Yacht
  • Trade it in for a new model and enjoy another 5 years of hassle free cruising or
  • Sell the yacht privately or through our extensive brokerage network.
