Sticking to what we know!

At PlainSailing.com, we’re regularly getting asked if we can sort out yacht charters in the other great sailing cruising grounds, like the glorious Caribbean, or the Whitsundays in Australia.

The short answer is that we’d love to – and, who knows, in time we might – but at the moment, given our focus on genuine quality and customer service, we think we’re better off sticking with the areas where we’re expert.

We want our customers to know that they can trust us to find them an excellent yacht, and be confident in the advice we can give them over where to sail it to find exactly what they’re looking or from a sailing holiday.  If we operated anywhere, say, and offered our customers the choice of over 50,000 yachts then we wouldn’t be able to make those same guarantees, or be able to go out and meet each and every one of our yacht charter operators.

(And, of course, the Med is the oldest and best cruising ground in the world, so it’s not exactly a bad place to start!)

For those hoping to sail in other cruising grounds, maybe we’ll be able to do that in a few years’ time: but only once we’ve got people in our team who know and understand those markets.
