The best time for a sailing holiday is anytime! Many couples enjoy celebrating special events like honeymoons, anniversaries, and birthdays with a lovely sailing trip. However, a sailing holiday is a great way to connect and bond with your partner on any occasion. They provide a unique experience that will become a cherished memory for many years to come.
The types of sailing charters for couples don’t differ much, so you’ll have the option to do bareboat, fully crewed/skippered, or a crewed cabin charters onboard luxurious catamarans worldwide. Which one is the right choice will depend largely on you and your partner’s personality.
For the active, adventurous, DIY-couple, we recommend bareboat charters, as they provide the most hands-on sailing experience. With a bareboat charter, you will be the captain and crew and that will require a great team effort from you as a couple. Bareboat charters are great for building communication and collaboration as a couple. We also recommend bareboat charters for couples that are looking for total privacy. With bareboat, it will just be you and the sea. With this option, sailing licenses may be needed in some or most destinations, other than the Caribbean where a good sailing resume is required.
Contact the Yacht4Less charter consultants for more information.
For the couple that just wants to chill and soak it all in, we recommend a fully crewed or skippered charter.
Depending on your sailing experience, skippered charters will provide a nice hybrid of help with the sailing operations, combined with peace and privacy.
A fully crewed charter will offer all the same, just with the addition of a private chef, which in our experience ups the luxury factor. You will enjoy gourmet, customized food without having to lift a finger! You can also add a hostess who will be responsible for the tidiness and cleanliness of your boat.
For our more social couples, a cabin charter on board a crewed catamaran is a great choice! With crewed cabin charters you rent a private cabin with an en suite bathroom, just like a hotel.
It’s a great option if you want the indulgence of an all-inclusive fully crewed charter, with the price of a single cabin. You can enjoy meeting other couples and making new friends over sundowners on the deck, kayaking or paddle boarding, or exploring the shore.
The best thing about sailing holidays is that they are inherently romantic. The ocean is one of the most romantic symbols of all time. So a sailing holiday for couples is idyllic, no matter where you are.
However, our most popular destinations are the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and the South Pacific.
You and your partner will enjoy each island’s unique vibe, as you make your way through the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico based on the start point marina that you choose for your holiday.
The Mediterranean also has a special atmosphere. It’s recommended for history-lovers and nature-lovers alike. You will find an abundance of adorable villages and gorgeous seaside hiking trails to explore.
Try some of the best food in the world. The Mediterranean coast is filled with simply delicious seafood, sumptuous olive oil, fresh fruits, and crisp vegetables. Yacht4Less’ top romantic destinations include Greece, Croatia, Italy, Spain and Turkey.
For an extra adventurous trip, head to the exotics, like Thailand, French Polynesia, or Seychelles. There you will have the adventure of a lifetime and experience life like never before. As these destinations are a tropical paradise, there’s flora and fauna galore. Sandy beaches, coral reefs, jungle rainforests, and so much more await you!
As with most things in life, sailing holidays are all about what you make of it.
The beauty of a sailing holiday is the flexibility and freedom that you have to make it your own, and you can be sure there are a plethora of romantic activities that can be added to your itinerary.
