Here's some useful information to guide you and your crew through The Yacht Week booking process; from picking your paradise to paying and sailing away.

Select dates

Seven days long

All our events are 7 days long and typically start and end on a Saturday. Almost every day you’ll be sailing to somewhere new.

Week numbers

We've adopted a week numbering system to make it easier to remember which dates you have selected.

Yacht or cabin, that is the question?

You can book a whole yacht with up to 11 people or a 2 person cabin on a shared yacht.

Choose your yacht

Yacht for 6-11 guests

We offer sailing yachts–think of it as a floating glamping trip with friends and you may get a better idea of the experience. Yachts can accommodate between max 6 and max 12 people (including a Skipper). We have 4 different yacht classifications to suit all crew and wallet sizes.

Economy from €450

Represent good value for money. Highly practical sailing yachts. Slightly older than standard yachts and have less equipment but fitted with all the essentials.

Standard from €550

Balance of luxury and affordability. Slightly newer than economy yachts with better quality equipment. More internal space than economy yachts.

Premium from €700

Modern and spacious. Premium yachts have more internal and external space, perfect for tanning on the deck. Fitted with large bathrooms & powerful showers. Some come with AC and upgraded sound systems.

Premium Plus from €900

First-class luxury sailing yachts. An upgrade from premium, with more spacious cabins and bathrooms. State of the art equipment and most are fitted with AC. Very limited availability and usually get snatched up first.

Choose your crew

You and your friends

Our yachts have 3-5 cabins depending on the size and sleep up to 12 people including the skipper and hostess (if you want one). Remember the minimum age for all of our events is 20 years old. You can use our nifty crew finder or join the FB group to help you fill up free spots on your yacht.

+ Skipper included

Skipper, mentor, friend, sea-guru. Whichever you’d prefer to call’em, your yacht comes with one! And trust us when we say, they’re the oracles of the sea. They know everything there is to know about our yachts, routes, docking and more.

+ Hostess (optional)

Hostess, trained sea chef, tour guide and friend. They will take your experience to a whole new level by treating you to freshly prepared meals every day and even tidy up afterwards. Unlike a skipper, they're optional for yacht bookings.

Equal gender balance

We aim for an overall equal gender balance on all weeks because The Yacht Week was built on this principle and let’s face it, variety is the spice of life. The ratio requirement is the percentage of girls you need to have in your crew. This is calculated taking into consideration the balance of girls and guys already booked that week.

Pro tip: Hostesses contribute towards achieving the ratio requirement.

Pay & sail away

10% 30% 60%

Yes, you can guarantee the week of your life without splashing all the cash at once. You can pay for your yacht over 3 instalments. The first 10% is due on booking but fully refundable within 24 hours whilst you get your crew on board. Check your booking for the exact dates of your second and third instalment.

Split the cost

After booking and paying the initial 10%, the lead booker can invite all crew members to the booking. Each crew member can then access the booking through their own profile to pay their share. Note, the lead booker is responsible to ensure all payments are paid on time.

FAQ

The exact routes are set a few weeks before the event starts. As soon as the routes are set, you will be able to view it on your booking.

We rent out yachts for the one week only. This is typically Saturday to Saturday, so even if you wish to cut the week short you would have to pay for the full week. In some cases (BVI New Year for example), the event may not run from Saturday to Saturday, so please check the dates carefully.

You can do so but you will need to organise transport at your own expense in order to either meet the yachts when you arrive or find your way back to the mainland when you need to leave. Ferry connections are good, so it isn't usually a problem. Just speak to your TYW skipper for assistance, or drop us an email to info@theyachtweek.com. The itinerary is set a couple of weeks prior to departure when you will be able to see exactly where the yachts are on your arrival/departure day.

Choose your cabin

Cabin for 2 people

Bring a friend and join a yacht of up to 8 other cabin bookers. Arrive as strangers, leave as family. Cabin bookings are the best way to meet, mingle and make friends with people from around the world.

Cabins from €1100 pp All our cabins accommodate 2 people, either in the form of a double or bunk bed. Cabin bookings include the price of a skipper and hostess.

Choose your crew

You and your friend

Pay & sail away

Sharing is caring

Yes, you can guarantee the week of your life without splashing all the cash at once. Pay the first 50% on booking and the second 50% at a later date. Invite your cabin mate to the booking so they can access the booking and make the second payment. Check your booking for the exact date of your second instalment.
