Chartering with a Skipper
 
Whether you are a beginner or expert, having a Sunsail Skipper on-board will guarantee that you make the most of your chosen destination. With local knowledge of the best beaches, anchorages, bars and restaurants, you will see all the best bits and can relax, safe in the knowledge that you have a competent professional on-board. You can of course be as involved or laid back as you wish.

Exploring some of the most beautiful destinations in the world on your own yacht is one of the greatest holiday experiences. With a skippered charter, the opportunity to enjoy the unique thrill of sailing is open to anyone and everyone, regardless of previous sailing experience.
Hiring a Sunsail skipper is ideal for sailors who may not have enough confidence or sailing hours to take the helm and also for those who like to have plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling and simply chilling out with a book or a glass in hand.
With a Sunsail skippered charter, it’s up to you to decide how much or how little crewing you want to do. You’ll also be able to take advantage of your skipper’s insider knowledge of all the best restaurants, places to visit and sheltered anchorages.
