Sailaway Scotland Yacht Charter Ltd
Welcome to Sailaway Scotland - for quality yacht charter on Scotland's west coast. Our fleet of 8 yachts is based mainly at Largs on the beautiful Firth of Clyde. Oban/Crinan charters are also often available!
The Firth of Clyde with its own islands and sea lochs, has many pretty harbours and quiet sheltered anchorages, with visitors’ moorings, hotels and restaurants ashore, secluded beaches, and opportunities for walking and climbing. For the more adventurous there is easy access to the Argyll Islands and the Irish coast, whether through the wonderful Crinan Canal or around the fabled Mull of Kintyre.
Offering easy access to our beautiful, unspoilt, uncrowded cruising grounds – Largs is only 35 MINUTES BY TAXI FROM EITHER GLASGOW OR PRESTWICK AIRPORTS. We will be happy to help arrange transport for you, to or from the airport.
We like to think - and our customers tell us - that Sailaway offers a service which makes us stand out, not just in our professionalism and helpfulness, but in the care we take in maintaining and presenting our yachts. Here's a quote from one recent customer:
"We wanted to write to say how impressed we are with the service we received from your company through the whole process of the Charter. From the moment of booking the boat where you showed flexibility on dates from your brochure to paying deposits and fees to the relaxed but very professional hand over, the clean and well set up boat, the hand back were all a cut above the normal Charter company. We have been chartering for 25 years plus in many different places and we all agreed this is the best area with the best boats . It just a shame it has taken 25 years to discover it, where else can you go with 25 plus knots of wind sailing at 9 knots with the sea state being slight with beautiful scenery and lots of harbours with wifi. We will be booking next year." (... and he did!)
