Sustainable Travel

At Sunsail we are committed to sustainable travel to ensure our customers are able to experience authentic sailing holidays in the most responsible way. To protect the natural world, people, culture and heritage of our 20+ stunning sailing destinations around the world, we strive to help our customers travel the right way. 

As passionate sailors, we have been carefully crafting sailing holidays in the world's best sailing grounds for nearly 50 years. Sunsail firmly believe that travel should improve and enrich the lives of the people, wildlife and places we operate within.

We have taken the time to understand what is important to our customers, our partners and our people to ensure our approach to sustainability drives positive change in the right areas.

Unfortunately, we are no strangers to the suffering and devastation caused by climate change and have continued to support our teams who have been directly impacted by extreme weather and natural disasters.


Our OCEAN Promise identifies our 5 core pillars of focus and outlines the steps we will take going forward in each area.

Vision Statement

We are dedicated to a future that encourages responsible travel, celebrates diversity, and requires inclusion. 

We will inspire our customers, our global teams, and the communities in which we operate through education that promotes engagement and drives positive change. Protecting the natural world, reducing waste and our contribution to climate change will be at the heart of all our decision-making.

We strive to continue to develop a global fleet of award winning yachts that exceed expectations and minimise the impact to our oceans and marine life.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

We have engaged with many different parties, including our global teams, customers and partners to ensure our priorities set out in our sustainability framework were supported across all who associate with our business. We also consulted the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
