Hire a Yachtmaster™


Have you always aspired to sail offshore, to distant shores or new beautiful places, to tick off that first cross channel or just watch a sunset out on passage? To experience that magical feeling it gives of total freedom? At one with your boat and the elements?

You’re not alone, in fact your just the same as everyone else that just needs that support and that’s exactly what our aim is at Bacchus Yachting. We guarantee this is the best private guidance and support you can get. It’s time to tick off that always wanted to do passage, sail offshore and do that trip.

Bespoke to your needs we can provide our Yachtmaster™ exclusively on your own boat to join you for your needs providing the help and guidance you want. They can help to be part of your crew to give you that confidence and ensure the fun and enjoyment of your experience is met. This maybe with your family, yourself and your spouse or a small group, whatever the crew size we have you covered.

We can also arrange to undertake fun and confidence building passages for the first time on our boats exclusively to your party or for couples.

Our Yachtmasters are not only experienced in delivering the above but are also boat owners who have cruised extensively the south coast, Normandy, Channel Islands, Brittany and The Baie de Seine, with their family and friends.
