With Horizon Crewed Yacht Charters, you don’t have to be a sailor to enjoy the pleasures of setting sail and feeling the warmth of the sun as you cruise past palm fringed beaches and deserted islands. Whether you are an old salt or a first time cruiser / landlubber, looking for adventure or relaxation, dreaming of bustling ports or quiet coves, Horizon Yacht Charters will help create the perfect crewed sailing holiday.
Your skipper will take responsibility for all aspects of managing your yacht charter, including leaving the dock, cruising under power, cruising under sail, sailing, arriving at the dock, anchoring and mooring. Additionally they will instruct you and your fellow guests in yacht handling requirements as they arise.
