Mainsail Corporate Yachting Skippered Charters

Charter For You, yacht charter ScotlandMainsail Corporate Yachting's vision is to offer a range of packages, the minimum of which is a modern, safe, clean and comfortable yacht. Perhaps that minimum package is all that you need to explore our beautiful, yet sheltered cruising ground! Mainsail Corporate Yachting Events have yachts supplied by leading European manufacturers, including the German manufacturer, 'Bavaria Yachts', which range from 34 to over 50 ft in length. The basic yachts have then been fitted out to the highest standards for your safety, comfort and convenience. For example, our Bavaria yachts all have the deep lead/antimony keel option to enhance stability and windward performance, whilst the mainsail is stowed and zipped, with minimum fuss, in our mainsail packing system.

yacht interiorInside the yacht we haven't forgotten your home comforts - the specification is huge, including showers, programmable central heating, fridge, radio/CD player etc. Of course each yacht is fitted with state-of-the-art electronic navigation systems, supplemented by traditional charts for those who prefer the time-honoured techniques of navigation. Gas alarms, smoke detectors, liferafts, lifejackets, harness lines - it's there for your safety and it's all so easy to use.

We believe that these sort of features provided on a modern, clean, well founded yacht will afford you the best possible start to your Scottish cruising holiday. But remember, this is just the minimum package that Mainsail Corporate Yachting Events offer. We will help you to customise your charter in many ways, for example, we can pick you up from Glasgow airport and even offer additional and spectacular shore-side accommodation. Mainsail Corporate Yachting Events is just that, yachting holidays in Scotland customised to meet your needs.

Skippered charters start from £570 for a 2 day charter (Skipper paid separately). Contact the office for a personalised quote based on your requirements and boat size.

Fantastic Location

locationWell, some say this is our forte. The Kip Marina in Inverkip, near the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, is itself a wonderful location to spend some time. There are many beautiful and fascinating local attractions (see details here) - you could spend a great week visiting them, but you are probably itching to set sail. On your doorstep are the Firth of Clyde and its sea lochs. You may take a leisurely sail southwards towards the island of Great Cumbrae or the Island of Bute and pick up a mooring buoy for the evening. Tomorrow you may stop for lunch, or longer, at the famous Kyles of Bute before heading down the West Kyle and over to East Loch Tarbert, one of our favourite West Coast haunts, for the night.

Next day you might decide to venture further up Loch Fyne and pick up a mooring buoy of one of the fine restaurants up there, or you may well decide to head for the Kintyre peninsula or the mainland on the eastern side, with marinas at Largs, Troon, etc. The choice is immense and we haven't even mentioned the Hebridean islands. There's Arran in the Firth of Clyde with its major anchorages (visitor buoys) at Lamlash, Brodick and Lochranza. Beyond are Gigha, Islay, Colonsay, to name just three - you'll find that you're spoiled for choice. I've sailed here for most of my life and am still amazed by the beauty and tranquillity of the sailing in these waters.

Great Skippers

skipper with clientsMainsail Corporate Yachting Events have carefully selected a highly experienced group of skippers and instructors. They are all highly qualified sailors and instructors who know these waters well, love sailing, are devoted to sail training and, importantly, are fun to sail with. Whilst Sail Training For You offers RYA recognised sail cruising courses, the same instructors are available to skipper your yacht, should you decide to opt for a skipper to guide you through the waters of the West of Scotland.
