About Cruising Charters

Island Charters offers you the best in South Coast sailing, plus excellent facilities in the sunny Mediterranean and the Caribbean.

We are:

  • Ideally located with bases in Hamble, Isle of Wight and Dartmouth, plus our exciting developments in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.  We offer a superb range of cruising areas with many delightful harbours, creeks and anchorages to explore. Reciprocal berthing is available, so for example you could pick up a boat in Hamble, meander to Dartmouth, and end your journey there.
  • Dedicated to offering only the best – all our cruiser/racer yachts are brand new, superb quality, and the ultimate in advanced engineering, making them easy to sail and operate. Each yacht is fully coded and insured. Your safety and enjoyment is paramount to us.
  • Committed to round-the-clock service – we aim to resolve any problems during your charter immediately, so you’re underway again as quickly as possible. If you have technical questions, simply call and we’ll answer them for you. And you can rest assured of professional back-up, as we’re members of SeaStart, the maritime version of the AA.
  • Able to offer as much support as you need – of course, all our yachts come ready to go – check out what’s onboard/ charter times for details. Plus we can provide wetgear and sleeping bags, onboard catering, skippers and hostesses, branding, and more.

We provide a wide variety of sailing experiences and services, for novices and the more experienced – whether for a family day out, a group event or taking part in a major regatta.

Please contact us for more information or to discuss your itinerary.
