No Fueling: Sailing yacht charters have low or no fuel impact

With fuel costs on the rise, a no- or low-fuel sailing yacht charter vacation, powered by wind, makes sense to your pocketbook and to your peace of mind.

Sailing yachts like 64′ WHEN AND IF (left) and 145′ HEMISPHERE (above) offer low impact, wind-powered getaways.

Safety. Space. Serenity.

Under sail with little environmental impact, ocean sailing offers safety and serenity.

Single-hull sailing yachts provide a chance to learn the ropes while having an unforgettable adventure. Sailing catamarans provide space and stability. 

You may think, “No way would I want to sail when the wind blows; ‘A Gusta Wind’ will heel over and I go overboard?” 

Not the case with modern designs or even the classics. You will not even lose sight of land!

Learn. Lull. LOL.

Sailing also provides a learning platform for children of all ages. Try putting the baby to sleep with the gentle lull of the water lapping against the hull, it works (from my personal experience traveling with my family from babies to teens). 

Pre-teens and teens disconnect from screens and reconnect to the family and the water. 

Bonus: Kids go to bed early after playing and learning all day.

Songs for Sail

There is good reason why so many songs are dedicated to the extraordinary experience of sailing. Jack Johnson said it best:

“Only the ocean and me, when these sails go up, mountains fade away, Stars come out, I’m finally free”. 

Jack Johnson, surfer/sailor/singer/songwriter
