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!

 Less than you think! 

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!

 Sample prices - with skipper - below! 

Below are sample prices for 2024 for a Yacht / Catamaran Charter holiday for both Croatia and Greece - the two most popular places to sail in Europe.

Prices are for a one week charter (from Saturday to Saturday), including mandatory cleaning fees, a skipper for the week (who will also take one of the cabins), and for relatively new boats (new, but not brand new) - so cheaper, older boats will also be available). These prices are the price per boat, and each cabin can hold 2 people - so the price per head can be very reasonable, particularly if you invite enough friends or family to fill all the beds.

CROATIA May / Oct June / Sept July / Aug
3 cabins (2019) €2,885 €3,900 €4,296
4 cabins (2019) €3,356 €4,598 €5,372
Catamaran (2019) €4,479 €5,251 €7,904
GREECE May / Oct June / Sept July / Aug
3 cabins (2019) €3,846 €4,563 €5,338
4 cabins (2019) €4,296 €5,171 €6,162
Catamaran (2019) €5,412 €6,494 €7,756

The price above is the price for the boat (and you can use as many of the beds as you like. On top of that, you will need to buy flights and transfers to get to the marina, mooring fees (parking fees for wherever you park the boat overnight - anchoring in a bay is free), fuel (for powering the engines - though wind-power is free), plus food & drink - see 'What's Included?' for a more detailed analysis.
