SailMed Skippered Yacht Charter - Affordable Cruising in the Mediteranean - Aboard

Whilst on board you can relax and enjoy the surroundings or learn a little more about sailing from Neil and Alexandra. Lie back as we cruise the islands,take in local scenery and tourist sites.

Just imagine, you wake up in port, have a traditional french breakfast and ready yourself for the day. If we are sailing we will normally go for a couple of hours and then find an idyllic bay for lunch comprising of local French breads, salads, seafood, cheeses and drinks will be served.

Afterwards we will sail again to our next port where a complimentary glass of champagne will get you in the spirit for the night ashore. We can recommend local restaurants and places to see or just good beaches if that's what takes your fancy.

If you discover that the port needs more than one day to explore, or you wish to sunbathe on the beach, we can stay longer. Similarly, you are welcome to sit on board either in the cockpit or down below, and enjoy the sensation of being in the South of France aboard a luxury yacht.

A third option is "assisted" sailing allowing those with the experience the opportunity to try out their skills. We are happy to facillitate this type of sailing, but would remind everyone that there remains one skipper who will retain responsibility for the yacht and its crew at all times.

Some of the many comments from our guests. More testimonials here

My wife and I have been sailing on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia for a number of years, but had never chartered in the Mediterranean. We were referred to Neil and Alexandra at SailMed by a major Mediterranean bareboat charter company because we wanted a crewed charter with all the amenities for ourselves and our friends. We could not have made a better choice! The Kinsale, their Bavaria 41, is beautifully appointed, and both Neil and Alexandra have years of sailing experience in the Med, while also having the highest professional Sailing Instructor certifications. They are well acquainted with all the picturesque ports and beautiful anchorages along the coast, and are lively and entertaining hosts. A crewed charter with SailMed is not only a wonderful vacation experience, but a great value, too!

We have a dream

My husband and me are dreaming of a long sailing trip with our three children. But as living in Switzerland we only have the experience of internal sails. Passing our holidays at Le Lavandou we wanted to take the opportunity and spend a daytrip on the sea and were referred to Neil and Alexandra Freeman. We’ve spent an excellent day on board of the Kinsale. We sailed over to the islands an anchored in a little bay of Port-Cros. The children were very happy with rowing the dinghy and with snorkeling. Alexandras seafood salad at lunch was just superb. Time went by so quick with discussing and laughing and too soon we had to leave the bay and sail along the coast of the islands. Finally we arrived in the evening at the harbor of Le Lavandou, very happy and with a new experience.
