Skippered Charters

Seven days sailing, no experience required as we provide you with a professional Skipper for your holiday. Just follow these three simple steps to jump onboard.

  1. Pick your crew! Choose to bring along your family or a group of friends, the yacht accommodates up to 10 guests and we welcome all ages

  2. Select a week to join us; we start our trips every Saturday

  3. Decide which of our Explorer route you’d like to sail on or contact us for a bespoke trip.​


Spend your days island hopping, relaxing on deck taking in the  Mediterranean sunshine or let your skipper show you the ropes and learn a thing or two about sailing! Anchor up for swim stops and laid-back lunches before docking in a new town each afternoon. We show you our favourite spots, the best restaurants for you to enjoy traditional local food and the bars with stunning sunset views.

Our charters depart every Saturday from May through to October. Take a look at our routes below and fill out our contact form and we will get back to you with a quote.

A blissful island oasis off the west coast of Greece with luscious greenery, unspoilt bays, traditional Greek tavernas offering a dreamy escape from daily life. A sought after sailing destination simply perfect for a fun and relaxed Greek island experience.

How it works...

Each booking made is for the whole yacht, completely private (and COVID safe). All our yachts are operated by a professional skipper so no sailing experience is required. Our yachts range in size from 2 cabins to 5 cabins accommodating groups of 2 - 10 people.

If your group is larger than 10 please get in touch as we have alternatives available. 



We have two types of yachts available, Monohull and Catamaran - which one to chose?

Monohulls offer the most authentic sailing experience, for the more adventures souls amongst us.

Catamarans are for those looking for added luxury. They provide a smoother sailing experience and have more outside space and larger cabins.

(All our yachts have a fully equipped kitchen and both indoor and outdoors dining areas).



Include a Sailing Escapes host on your trip for a full catered option. Your host will serve you breakfast and lunch everyday made from locally sourced, fresh ingredients. Take more time for the important things in life as your host will also take care of all cleaning tasks onboard throughout the week. We have an experienced team who can cater for all dietary requirements too.

Hosted options include food provisions for two meals a day, this means no last minute shopping trips before stepping onboard.


As you’ll be living on the yacht it will need to be provisioned with food and drink for your stay. Unless you include a host, you’ll be responsible for providing your own food and drink aboard. However, starting your holiday with a supermarket trip is not ideal therefore we have two food packages available. 

Basic Food Packages include provisions for a simple breakfast and lunch for you to prepare yourself throughout the week. You may like to pick up some extras like fresh bread and fruits throughout the week. This option is priced per person.

Tailored Food Package is like an online shop, we will send you an order form and your order will be delivered to your check in. This allows you to cater to your own requirements without the hassle of shopping. Your order total will be additional to cost of service by Sailing Escapes.

Food packages can be selected in the available options when booking.


Starting from €6,800 (low season) for a 5 Cabin Monohull (10 persons / €680 each).
