The United Kingdom is home to many of the best sailing areas in the world, thanks to its ideal location between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea.

Book your sailboat charter in the UK with Scansail now!



Where to sail in the UK?

With its mild climate, diverse coastline and sheltered waters, the United Kingdom is a paradise for sailing holidays. There are so many great places to sail, it can be hard to know where to start. Here are our top picks for the best sailing destinations in the UK.

South Coast

The south coast of England is a beautiful place to sail, with plenty of sheltered bays and coves to explore. Southampton is a great base for exploring the Solent, with its many islands and cliffs. The Isle of Wight is another popular destination for sailors. The island is home to many picturesque villages and a stunning coastline. If you venture out further along the coast, you will reach the beautiful county of Dorset, another great place to visit. We recommend exploring Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, two of the UK’s most iconic rock formations.

Norfolk

Norfolk is a beautiful county in East Anglia, with a long coastline and plenty of protected waters. The Broads are a popular destination for sailors, with over 125 miles of waterways to explore. Great Yarmouth is another popular spot, with its sandy beaches and historic harbour. Whether you are an experienced sailor or not, you will love navigating along the coast of this county.

Oban, Scotland

Oban is a beautiful town in southwest Scotland, situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe. It is known as the gateway to the Isles, and there are plenty of wonderful sailing destinations nearby. The Isle of Mull is a popular choice, with its stunning scenery and wildlife. Other popular spots include Iona, Staffa and the Small Isles.

How much does a sailboat charter in the UK cost?

The cost of chartering a sailboat in the UK varies depending on the model, the number of people on board, the season and duration of the charter and any additional options. Sailboats can come with or without a skipper. If you opt for a bareboat charter, you will have complete freedom to explore new areas without being tied down to one location. Plus, you can be sure to get the most out of your time on the water since you'll have complete control over your itinerary.

Prices for a standard charter start at around £1848 per week for a small sailboat in the low season and go up to around £14,819 per week for a large sailboat in the high season. Prices will also be higher if you require a skipper.

What do we offer?

At Scansail, we offer the best possible sailing experience for our customers. We provide a private yacht charter with an onboard crew who will cater to your every need and show you the best places to sail. A skippered yacht charter will also give you the freedom to explore new areas and experience different sailing conditions without worrying about the details.

We understand that not everyone is familiar with the ins and outs of boat hire, which is why we offer a comprehensive service that takes care of everything for you. The APA (advanced provisioning allowance) will be paid in advance, so you can just focus on enjoying your time on the water.

The harbours in the UK

Picking the right harbour to moor your sailboat can be a tricky business. There are so many factors to consider, from the location of the harbour to the facilities on offer. But don't worry, we've got you covered. Here are the best harbours to hire and moor your sailboat in the UK.

  • If you're looking for a harbour close to Southampton, then look no further than Hamble Point Marina. This marina offers over 600 berths for boats of all sizes and has excellent facilities.
  • Norfolk is a great place to moor your sailboat, with plenty of sheltered harbours and beautiful scenery. We recommend Brundall Bay Marina, which is situated on the River Yare and offers over 400 berths.
  • Oban is home to one of the best harbours in the UK for sailboats, Oban Marina. This marina offers over 200 berths for boats of all sizes.

When to go on your sailboat hire in the UK?

The UK is a great place to sail, with stunning scenery and plenty of opportunities to explore. However, the weather can be unpredictable, so it's important to plan your trip carefully.

The best time to hire a sailboat in the UK is during the summer months, from June to August. The weather is usually at its best during this time, with warm temperatures and long days. However, it's also the busiest time of year, so you'll need to book early to guarantee availability.

If you're looking for a cheaper option, consider chartering a yacht in spring or autumn. The weather can still be good at these times of the year, and you'll avoid the peak season crowds. Just be prepared for some cooler temperatures and shorter days.
