8 things you should take on a yacht charter holiday

When going on a yacht holiday, there are a few things we recommend you take with you to make sure you’re equipped not only for the weather, but to also enjoy those moments of rest and relaxation.

A good book
For those quiet moments when you’re not sailing, swimming, exploring or eating, it’s worth taking a good book with you.

If you want to read some nautical-related material, Atlas & Boots has a fantastic list of 25 of the best sailing books to inspire you.

We’d love to know what reads you’d recommend – let us know on our Facebook page at Charter Yachts.

Music and Bluetooth speaker
There’s nothing better than having the freedom to listen to your music on a yacht charter holiday.

Our team has put together three different Spotify playlists you can tune into. We recommend you download these playlists before you leave home. But if you are UK-based and sailing in the EU, internet data will come from your personal allowance as normal.

Yachting Themis iv Relaxing at Anchor playlist – For when you’ve moored and have some time spare to relax
Yachting Themis iv Life on the Water playlist – For passing the time between ports
Yachting Themis iv Ultimate Summer Party playlist – For when you fancy something a little more upbeat
Let us know what you think!

Waterproof camera
The Mediterranean and Caribbean have an abundance of marine life to explore. So anchor up, get your snorkeling gear on and capture the myriad of fish with a waterproof camera.

The team at TropicalSnorkeling.com recommend the GoPro Hero7 Black and also offer other helpful in-depth guides to snorkeling equipment.

Our personal favourite spots to snorkel in the Mediterranean are on and around the North Sporades coastline and the North Aegean cluster of islands including Alonissos & Kyra Panagia


A good hat
Often forgotten but very important, a hat is an essential item to pack on a yacht charter. You’ll be spending a lot of time outside under the sun and it’s easy to get sunburnt without the additional protection and shade that a hat gives you.

We recommend a secure fitting cap or visor, or one with a retainer clip like these Musto ones. Some days will be windier than others and you don’t want to lose your hat when you’re miles away from the nearest shop.

Like the hat, suncream is often forgotten and it’s so important to stay well protected under the strong UV rays of the Mediterranean

Kids are especially prone to sunburn on yacht charters as they’re in and out of the water swimming every day.

Secure your yacht charter in advance

It’s often better to find and book your yacht well in advance of your travel date.

We do offer some great last-minute deals – it is one of our specialities – but to secure the boat you want, we recommend you book between six to 10 months in advance.

Book flights early

Gone are the days of getting good last-minute prices on flights.

It’s sensible to book your flights in advance, when demand is lowest, to secure the best offers.

Airlines such release flights around 10 to 11 months in advance so it pays to keep an eye out well ahead of time.
