Yacht & Catamaran Charter in Largs, Scotland

We can help you find the perfect yacht or catamaran to sail from Largs!

Sailing from Largs

Largs is our favourite place to charter in Scotland, with a large safe marina, cafes and restaurants and bars and a welcoming sailing club, it's an easy place to arrive on a Friday evening in preparation for your trip. The Clyde outside the breakwater is sheltered from most wind directions and gives you opportunity to sail even in inclement conditions.

You've the choice of dozens of directions to explore, and a great weekend for me would be to get out on the first evening and across to Millport on Cumbrae where you can pick up a mooring before going ashore in this old fashioned holiday village. From there head south to explore Arran, finding a mooring or anchoring in Lamlash bay, tucked in behind the Holy Isle. We can help you find and book your ideal yacht or catamaran, with one of our trusted Charter Partners - just get in touch or search in the pink box with live prices and availability!
 

Must See if you're Sailing from Largs

 SAILING RATING:  Intermediate / Advanced - there's interesting and changeable weather conditions, plus tides, so some experience is useful before sailing in Scotland. Peak season is July & August, but you can sail here from April to November.

 MUST-SEE:  We're working on our full suggested itinerary, but for now we'd highly recommend taking in the tranquility (and whiskey) in Loch Ranza, a sail around the Kyles of Bute, and a night spoiling yourselves a little in Portavadie.

 WHAT WE CAN OFFER:  We have a great range of yachts available for charter (sadly no catamarans yet!) from our trusted Charter Partners, all available bareboat or Skippered. We can also arrange a Hostess, Personal Chef and other crew.

 GETTING THERE:  The Marina is c. 45 minutes from Glasgow's airports. We can organise transfers for you - a 4 person taxi is c. £ 50 - 60.

 WHY BOOK WITH US?  We only work with the very best professional charter operators, who we have met, know, and trust to give you the same outstanding customer service as you'll get from PlainSailing.com.
