Renting a sailboat in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom (UK) is an island nation in northwest Europe, made up of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The UK is often overlooked as a popular sailing destination, but with a coastline of over 31,000 kilometres, there is so much to explore! Here at Oceans Evasion, we have a few recommendations as to what you can see on your sailboat rental.

How much does it cost to rent a sailboat in the UK?

Many factors go into the price of a sailboat rental such as the size of the vessel, the duration of your trip, and the season. The average price of a sailboat for eight people is around €3,450 per week throughout the year.

The sailing conditions in the UK

The UK has a temperate climate, with varying seasonal temperatures and relatively consistent precipitation. On average, the winters can be as cold as 0 degrees Celsius or less, and the summers can get as hot as 30 degrees Celsius! It is also worth noting that the climate varies depending on the regions, as the north of the UK is typically colder than the south. As such, we recommend that you check the weather before your journey begins. All in all, the weather can be quite unpredictable, but this doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying your holiday! When you rent your sailboat, you can always count on bringing a rain jacket just in case, or contact the sailboat owner for their opinion!

Should you rent a sailboat with or without a skipper?

While searching for sailboats on Oceans Evasion, you will find the option to rent with or without a skipper. It is possible to rent a sailboat without a skipper as long as the boat owner agrees to this. However, there are many advantages to having a skipper on board with you! For one, a skipper will handle all of the manoeuvrings, from the sailing to docking and anchoring of the sailboat. This means that you do not have to worry about any of these processes while on your holiday and just focus on enjoying your experience. Moreover, a professional skipper will be familiar with the surrounding area, so they can guide you through the waters and show you the unique spots that tourists may not know about. Ultimately, choosing to have a skipper on your private sailboat rental in the UK will help give you a more luxurious experience, making for an unforgettable holiday.

Where to visit in the UK

When it comes to renting a sailboat in the UK, there are so many destinations to explore. Every summer, there is a sailing regatta in Cowes. If you have time, you should take your rental there on the Isle of Wight to view the astounding races! Alternatively, you can sail around Portsmouth or Gosport. These harbour towns are popular locations for sailors around the world, as the ports have rich histories. From Portsmouth, you can head inwards towards Southampton to tour more of the English coast. If you visit these locations in the spring and summer months, you might manage to visit some of the amazing sailing races that occur such as the Spitfire Cup or the Gallagher Cup.

Alternatively, you can head to the northern coasts of the UK. In fact, there are more than 900 offshore islands in Scotland that you can explore with your sailboat rental. The four main groups are Shetland, Orkney, the Inner Hebrides, and the Outer Hebrides. These breathtaking islands all boast beautiful landscapes with unique characteristics. You will find rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, and even some waterfalls along these coasts. Moreover, you may even have a chance of admiring the Northern Lights if you visit these islands in the winter months! As you can see, there is so much to discover in the UK, so don’t let the bad weather reputation stop you.

Other of the top rental destinations in the UK include:

  • River Thames, London
  • Lake District
  • Cornwall
  • Isle of Mull
