Optional extras

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 personal package. From renting a paddleboard to hiring a cook, we can provide the extra details that help your sailing holiday exceed your expectations.

Our options


Want your hands free to enjoy your holiday? Why not hire a skipper or a chef? Have your skipper do all the sailing or pitch in as much as you like. The choice is yours. For added luxury, hire a chef so you can sample the local cuisine. All you need to do is make sure skippers and chefs get their own cabin on your yacht.

Water sports

We offer a selection of extras for you water sports lovers and adrenaline junkies. Choose from standup paddleboards and sea kayaks in selected destinations worldwide.

Stock your yacht

Make your sailing holiday even more hassle free and let us do the shopping for you. Choose 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.
