With approximately 2000 yachts and catamarans at all price levels, to choose from. Help us to understand what you would love to experience on your holiday, then we will be able to help you choose the perfect boat for your holiday.

Hence on our enquiry form we ask for as much detail as possible so that we recommend the perfect yacht for your group.


If you are joining one of our Share A Yachts or Flotilla trips, we have fabulous itineraries with impeccable planning behind each of them. We aim to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime with all the support you need. This ranges from on the ground support in each marina with Marina Hostesses to welcome and greet you, Tour Managers to travel with you onboard and a Flotilla Operations Centre in each destination to make sure everything runs smoothly.

As we have a base and staff in each country this ensures your trip is supported at all levels.

Marina Hostesses

Your Marina Hostesses will be in the marina to meet and greet you when you arrive for your holiday.

Tour Manager

Your Tour Managers will be in the marina to meet you and fully brief you about the trip and introduce you to the Skippers. They will be sailing with you on the Flotilla trips and will be available at all times should you have any queries during the trip especially important when travelling solo. The Tour Managers will host the evening dinner experiences. We all eat together with our new found friends from day one and at restaurants specifically chosen for their ambience and great food.

Your Skippers

The Getaway Sailing Skippers are chosen for all the following reasons:

  • Highly qualified commercially endorsed
  • Experience sailing in local waters
  • Multilingual
  • Great teachers
  • Patient
  • Fun
  • Knowledgeable about local history
  • Unique local links

For flotillas our Skippers follow a very exciting itinerary (see website). If you're looking for a Private Skippered Yacht you can be as involved as you'd like in choosing what you see, where you go and what you do.

N.B. We take our safety and our professionalism very seriously, but of course there is a lot of fun to be had onboard these trips too. Not only are our Skippers knowledgeable and fun, they are a musically talented bunch too.

The Getaway Sailing team looks forward to welcoming you onboard.
