Going that little bit further

We know your holiday is as unique as you are, so we offer a choice of optional extras to add to your personalised charter experience. From renting a paddleboard to hiring a cook, we can provide the extra details that help your sailing holiday exceed your expectations.

Our options + extras


Optional Extras

Find more time to enjoy your charter when you hire a skipper and/or cook. 

Add a Skipper 

Want your hands free to enjoy your holiday, why not hire a skipper? Have your skipper design a personalised itinerary and do all the sailing, or pitch in as much as you like, the choice is yours. Discover all your destination’s “hidden gems” with a licensed professional as your guide.  

Add a Cook/ Chef 

For added luxury, hire a cook so you can sample the local cuisine. Upon arrival take your cook shopping or select all your favorite foods online via our provisioning store and they’ll cook up a menu specifically for you and your guests.  

*Please ensure a cook and/or skipper get their own cabin on your yacht. Contact a Holiday Planner to request a skipper or chef. 

Water sports

Optional Extras

We offer a selection of extras for water sports lovers and adrenaline junkies. Choose from stand-up paddleboards, noodles and floats, and sea kayaks in selected destinations worldwide. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler, our water toys are great fun for everyone. Add these extras to your charter, and we will secure your toys aboard the yacht before you arrive. Give us a call for water toy rentals.


Optional Extras

Make your sailing holiday even more hassle-free and let us do the shopping for you. Choose from our a-la-carte or one of our food and beverage provisioning packages before you arrive, and we’ll make sure your yacht is full of all the supplies you need. Our online stores offer a vast selection of essential single items in addition to a range of convenient food and beverage packages. Relax with a drink in hand before you set sail. All provisioning orders should be placed no later than 7 days prior to the charter start date *depends on location* (14 days for BVI charters).

Yacht Damage Waiver

Purchase extra security with our Yacht Damage Waiver. This extra option covers accidental damage or loss and reduces the amount you’ll need to pay for your security deposit. Security deposits will be collected in cash or a credit card. In case of loss or damage to the yacht and its equipment, such as the outboard engine or dinghy, you will be offered a replacement while on charter. Choose from two coverage options. See more:

Discuss this pre-paid fuel option with your holiday planner to see which package is right for you.
