Charter a Sailboat in the United Kingdom with Scansail

A sailboat charter in the United Kingdom (UK) is a great way to explore the coastline and enjoy the country's beautiful scenery. Get away from it all with a boating holiday. You can enjoy a trip that is as peaceful or exciting as you desire.

How much does it cost to rent a sailboat in the UK?

The cost of renting a sailboat in the UK varies depending on the size and type of vessel, as well as the length of time you wish to rent it for. Generally speaking, the price for a sailboat charter in UK is made up of the charter fee, which covers the cost of the vessel and its crew, the seasonality, the number of people on board and any additional expenses such as fuel, mooring fees, and food and drink. In general, a sailboat rental in the UK for 12 people costs around €5,216 per week.

Where can you dock your sailboat in the UK?

Whether you're setting sail from England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you'll find plenty of options for where to dock your yacht. In England, popular charter bases include Southampton, Poole and Falmouth. In Scotland, Oban and Mallaig are popular starting points for yacht charters. And in Wales, Cardiff is a popular base for those looking to explore the country's stunning coastline.

Should I rent a sailboat with or without a skipper?

When you're looking to rent a sailboat in the UK, there are a few things you need to consider. One of the most important factors is whether or not you want to rent with or without a skipper. Renting a boat with a skipper has a number of advantages. First and foremost, it means that you don't need a license to operate the vessel. This can be a huge relief if you're not confident in your ability to captain a boat or if you simply want to relax and enjoy the ride. Another benefit of renting with a skipper is that they're usually very knowledgeable about the local area. This means they can take you to all the best spots and help you make the most of your time on the water. They'll also be able to handle any difficult situations that may arise, so you can just sit back and relax.

What is the best time to visit the UK?

The climate in the UK is mild and temperate, making it a great destination for a boating holiday at any time of year. In general, the best time to visit the UK is during the spring and summer months, when the weather is warm and dry. However, if you're looking to avoid the crowds, autumn and winter can also be lovely times to explore the country by boat.

What are the sailing conditions like in the UK?

With a temperate climate and a variety of coastlines to explore, the UK is a great place to sail all year round. However, conditions can vary depending on where you are sailing and what time of year it is.

Wind conditions

The wind is one of the most important factors to consider when sailing in the UK. The prevailing wind direction is from the southwest, which means that the south and west coasts are typically windier than the north and east coasts.

Water temperature

The water temperature in the UK varies depending on location and season. In general, the water is at its warmest in the summer and coolest in the winter. The southern and western coasts tend to be warmer than the north and east coasts.

Currents

The currents in the UK can be strong and variable depending on location. In general, there are two main types of currents in the UK; tidal currents and non-tidal (or geostrophic) currents. Tidal currents are caused by tides and can be very strong in some areas, so it is important to check tide tables before setting sail. Non-tidal currents are caused by wind and weather patterns and can be less predictable.

Special features

There are a number of special features to consider when sailing in the UK. These include sandbanks, reefs, and shipping lanes. Sandbanks can be a hazard for boats, so it is important to navigate them carefully. Reefs can also be a hazard, but they can also provide some interesting sailing opportunities. Shipping lanes are well-marked and should be avoided unless you have specific permission to sail in them.

What to do in the UK

The UK is full of beautiful sailing spots, and there's plenty to see and do whether you're a seasoned sailor or a beginner. From the stunning coastline to the picturesque countryside, there's so much to explore. Here are some of our top suggestions for what to do with your sailboat rental in the UK:

  1. Sail around the Isle of Wight. With its dramatic cliffs, sheltered bays and sandy beaches, it's a paradise for sailors of all levels. And with plenty of sheltered anchorages, it's perfect for overnight stays too.
  2. Explore the Scottish Highlands for breathtaking scenery and wildlife. This is one of the most stunning parts of the UK, and sailing is a great way to see it all. Keep your camera handy for snaps of dolphins, seals and eagles – you might even spot a whale!
  3. Visit the Isles of Scilly, a group of small islands off the coast of Cornwall in southwestern England. With their sandy beaches and beautiful cliffs, they feel like a world away from the rest of the UK. And with no cars allowed on any of the islands, they're perfect for a relaxing break.
  4. Discover Northern Ireland by sea. From towering cliffs to sheltered coves, there's something for everyone – and don't forget to enjoy some traditional Irish hospitality along the way!
  5. Take a trip down the River Thames. For a taste of urban sailing, head down England's most famous river – the Thames. You'll sail past some of London's most iconic landmarks, including Tower Bridge, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
