5 Reasons to Book The Yacht Week Early

October 17, 2017

We’re all for a little spontaneity every now and again but when it comes to banishing those winter blues, there’s really only one solution... And it involves a different kind of blue. The big blue no less!

Here's 5 reasons why you should be ready to take the plunge by 1 November when bookings open:

1. Access to the best yachts. And bouy, do we mean the best.

Fancy sailing into a floating festival on a 50ft catamaran featuring air con, comfy beds, a spacious sundeck and powerful showers? Well, guess what! You’re not the only one. The answer’s simple. Book early to stay one step ahead of the game and bag your dream boat.

2. Personalised paradise 

All our destinations are cherry-picked to ensure you have an epic experience. The experience of a lifetime. However. Vibes may differ depending on the amount of yachts, local culture, night life, crewdem and sailing experience. For some, less is more, and for others ‘more’ is a crazy floating festival experience shared with 700+ party people. The choice is entirely yours.

To help make the decision an easy one, we've categorised our routes by pace. So speed it up or slow it down sailors.

3. Where, who, with, when? 

When there’s a big bunch of you, say 12? We understand how hard it is to coordinate. And in a civilised manner too. There’s always a certain busy body with a diary fit to burst. That’s why we offer multiple weeks to choose from for most destinations, but they tend to get snatched up quick, so book whilst your options are open. Yes, in some instances, life IS like a box of chocolates. But not in this case. You’ll know exactly what week you’re locking down to spend with your A-team.

 4. Select your elite squad  

When it comes to The Yacht Week there are no rules, except for one: 50/50 guys and girls on all weeks. We try to get an equal balance on all our events because, well, variety is the spice of life and if you're struggling to gather troops you can use our crew finder to finish up the squad. We may offer some all guy yachts on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you're planning a lads on tour make sure you assemble the troops early!

5. Get the best flight deals  

Good things come to those who.. book early!

Remember: a penny saved is a penny earned. Later to be spent on mojitos and pina coladas but who’s counting? We don't include flights in our price, but we highly recommend securing your dates early so that you can plan your trip and hunt for the cheapest flights around.


If you want 1st dibs on all the best yachts, dates and destinations, ready your crew to book on 1 November, 4pm London time. The best way to soak’n’float carefree next summer is to book your trip before the rest of them. Be shellfish ?
