How does Cabin Charter work?

The Getaway Sailing Share-A-Yacht / Cabin Charter trips are for 7 nights. Unwind as we sail through a mixture of traditional fishing harbours, picturesque towns and lively ports with secret bays and anchorages for swimming or snorkelling.

Enjoy eating lunch surrounded by the crystal clear waters and beautiful panoramic views, whether your trip is in Greece or Croatia. Take advantage of the warm sunshine and clear blue skies to immerse yourself in the historical environment.

Our skippers are qualified professionals capable of commanding the yacht themselves so no guest experience is required. If you are interested in learning to sail we have all the skills and knowledge to show you the ropes.

What are the Yachts like?

The yachts are modern cruising yachts as shown in these photos with WC/Toilets, hot water showers, fully equipped kitchen and open plan lounge. There is always a seating area in the cockpit (at the rear of the yacht) which is great for an outdoor dining experience. Our modern sailing yachts have flat decks with plenty of space for stretching out on your beach towel and there is always a deck shower to cool down.

Where do we sleep?

You will all sleep on the yacht and accommodation is in double cabins.

It is possible to book a whole yacht cabin to yourself but you will need to cover the additional costs ensuring other holidaymakers enjoy the trip at the advertised prices.

How do we pay for expenses?

Onboard a Share-A-Yacht / Cabin Charter holiday the yacht running costs are shared. The best way of managing this is to contribute HRK 600 for Croatia and EUR 50 for Greece trips per person at the start of each week.

How do we pay for onboard food?

The best way is to contribute into an onboard food kitty at the start of the week. Allow HRK 400 for Croatia and EUR 50 for Greece trips per person per week.
