Family Sailing Holidays

At last… luxury crewed sailing holidays for families with something for everyone!

When you’ve got older children it can be so difficult to find a family holiday with enough happening and enough variety to keep everyone happy… we understand, because we’ve been there too!

Sailing Holidays for Families In The Mediterranean

That’s why our yachting holidays offer you so much more than just the sailing. Combining some of the best cruising in the world with great onshore experiences, you choose the mix to suit you and your family, whether it’s relaxation, culture and sightseeing or excitement, shopping and nightlife.

Discover life on the ocean wave – we promise you the best open water, hidden bays and beaches and fabulous coastal views; plus there’s snorkelling, fishing and swimming from your yacht.

Go ashore and explore – from amazing attractions and bustling sea ports to fabulous watersports and fine dining, perhaps a spot of shopping or a visit to the casino; it’s all here for you.

Take time out on your yacht – with on-board meals all prepared specially for you, plenty of sunbathing space and a saloon full of big comfy sofas (and a TV/DVD), you can simply sit back, relax and unwind.

Learn the basics of sailing a yacht – entirely optional, but always a hit with the teenagers! Our ‘Essential Start to Yachting’ is a short, easy and fun introduction to sailing; go on: give it a go!

Memorable Family Sailing Holidays

If this sounds like the perfect family holiday for you, then what are you waiting for?! Charter the entire yacht for your family and friends. With no more than 6 guests, every Essential Sailing cruise is special, exclusive and personal to you and your guests.

We guarantee you something for everyone… all you have to do is ask! We’re here to make your holiday a truly memorable experience for the whole family; and that’s a promise!
