Sailing Experience Days, Trips & Skippered Yacht Charter 

Providing fun, relaxed sailing days for business, social groups and individuals on skippered yacht charters is what we do!

It’s your charter. We aim to ensure you get what you want from the day, be it relaxation or a challenge, learning, sightseeing or simply a tick on your bucket list?

If you’re looking to charter a yacht for a day on the East or South coast of the UK, we have bases at Woolverstone Marina, Ipswich in Suffolk and Hamble Village in the Solent.  Step aboard our 40ft yacht Serena, licensed for up to 10 people. Or, choose from a range of yachts at either location to suit your requirements.


Our sailing day and event are great for…

  • Corporate Hospitality – A great way to say thank you to clients or ‘wow’ prospective clients.
  • Team Building Events – The perfect environment to challenge and strengthen any team.
  • Coastal Cruising – Sit back and enjoy the view or practice your navigation.
  • Celebration Parties – A unique way to celebrate with friends onboard.
  • Spectate local sailing events from a coastal vantage point.


We are also happy to arrange longer sailing trips…

  • Channel crossings to Belgium, France or Holland.
  • Stop off in London and visit a show?
  • Extended coastal cruising.
