It’s not everyday you get to see the world from your own yacht, unless you’re a billionaire of course... talk about a gap in the market. The Yacht Week is seven days of sailing to hidden splendours most landlubbers couldn’t get to, experiencing exclusive events and, the best part, being completely surrounded by an equal balance of adventure-seeking guys and girls from around the world.
Pick your paradise. We have seven stunning destinations to choose from… each hand picked for their endless sun, cultural diversity and serene seas. Our events are 1 week long and every destination has multiple weeks to choose from.
Browse yachts. Our sailing yachts come in a range of sizes and prices suitable for all groups and budgets. Use our easy yacht classification system to help find the best fit for you and your crew. Read more

Remember, if you select a skipper or hostess they will sleep on your yacht, so make sure you save a spot for them.
Book. As the lead booker you are in charge of adding extras to the yacht, like the skipper, hostess, and – depending on the destination – food & drinks packages. It is in the lead booker’s power to add friends to the crew list.
You can split the costs with everyone added to the crew list, so all can pay their share. Pay in 3 instalments, 30% within 24 hours of booking, 30% within 88 days of the event and 40% within 58 days of the event. Or choose to pay it all at once!
Sail away. You’re all set! Check out the guide to TYW in your booking profile. A couple of weeks before the event you’ll get the route info and, if you selected one, you’ll be introduced to your skipper and hostess.
So stop twiddling your thumbs and...Pick your paradise

Most people who join The Yacht Week have never been on a yacht before. We provide skippers who will teach you as much as you want to know about sailing and help navigate your yacht throughout the week.
