We like to make sure that you are kitted out properly before you set off. Whatever the weather, we've got you covered with our high quality waterproofs and wellingtons available to hire.
Prices start at £10 for boot hire and £30 for waterproof hire.


All boats should be returned to us in a clean and tidy state. Need to rush off or don't feel like cleaning on your holidays? Why not leave the cleaning to us? Prices start at £75 per yacht. If you would like to use our cleaning service, please select this option as an extra when booking.


All boats must be returned to us fully refuelled. In a hurry or don't fancy negotiating the fuel berth at the end of your trip? Why not choose our refuelling service? Refuelling service can be selected as an extra when making your booking. The fuelling service is £50 plus cost of any fuel used.


If you would like to hire one of our yachts but don't want to be responsible for taking control or don't have the correct sailing qualifications, why not hire a professional skipper? If you would like to sit back and relax, we can provide a skipper for £150 per day.

Don't forget to add all of your extras to your booking to create your ideal sailing holiday.
