How much does a Sailing Holiday Cost?

How much does it cost to go on a Yacht or Catamaran Sailing holiday in the Med? You'll be surprised!

One of the first questions we get asked by people who have never been sailing before is 'How much does it cost?'  Having assumed that this is a luxury holiday that only the rich and famous can afford, they are usually pleasantly suprised when we show them the figures! :)

Here are sample prices for a Yacht / Catamaran Charter holiday for both Athens and Split - the two best connected cities in Greece and Croatia respectively. 

We've made some assumptions:
  • One week
  • with a skipper (who takes one of the cabins)
  • Relatively new but not brand new
The prices below INCLUDE Skipper (c. €1260) and End Cleaning (c. €250), for your own private yacht or cat. 
 
  May / Oct June / Sept July / Aug
SPLIT - 3 cabins (2015) €2890 €3648 €4231
SPLIT - 4 cabins (2015) €3621 €4909 €5937
SPLIT - Catamaran (2014) €4437 €5937 €6378
       
ATHENS - 3 cabins (2015) €2860 €3341 €4091
ATHENS - 4 cabins (2015) €3616 €4430 €5282
ATHENS - Catamaran (2015) €4499 €5558 €7057
 
Is that less than you thought? :)  There are older and newer yachts and catamarans available on our site, so there are a whole range of options, to suit all price-points - use our search tool to find suitable yachts with live pricing and availability!

What else is left to pay?  Basically flights, fuel, mooring fees and food & drink, but see our blog on 'What's Included?' for a more detailed analysis!
