Possibilities on a skippered yacht charter

Longbow is well-suited to many types of yacht charter. Come as a family or existing group of friends, or join other people wanting a similar style of holiday. Your skipper, Ted, will welcome you aboard whatever your previous experience and aspirations for your cruise. Our most common types of charter are described below. More information is available for each by clicking on the link.

See the calendar for current availability and last-minute discounts.

  • Holidays: A sailing holiday offers the chance to take things at your own pace whilst trying new activities and visiting new places. There is something to suit everyone: the skipper has sailed with people of all ages and levels of expertise and aims to tailor the cruise to suit the group. Tell me more...
  • Sail training and mile building: Longbow is a powerful, responsive and seaworthy yacht, perfect for adventurous sail training and mile building, and has a Category 2 classification (up to 60 miles from a safe haven). The experienced skipper offers instruction in sailing, seamanship and navigation to the level required. Tell me more...
  • Corporate entertainment: Pamper your guests or reward your team with a memorable sail and an impressive meal, if required. Longbow's size and space make her ideal for corporate entertainment in comfort for up to 10 guests. She is usually based less than an hour from Glasgow. Tell me more...
  • Team building: Longbow is also well-suited for team building events. These can be based around learning to sail or use Longbow purely as an exciting venue.
