On Sailing Classics ships KAIRÓS (38 m, max. 16 overnight guests), CHRONOS and RHEA (54 m, max. 26 guests) we offer a mixture of an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts with the comfort and service similar to a cruise.
The travel experience itself is yacht sailing, just as one is or would be sailing with one’s own yacht, relaxed sailing with plenty of time for bathing, shore excursions and relaxation, without the compulsion of a fixed routing. We have a route recommendation for each week. The exact itinerary, however, depends on the current wind and weather conditions and ideally also on the interests of the guests.
The comfort (for a sailing ship generous cabins, all air-conditioned and with own bath) and the service (a professional crew of captain, partly helmsman, boatman, engineer, cook and stewardesses) resemble a cruise. The atmosphere aboard is very relaxed, friendly and family- like. There is no dress code – even at the Captain’s Dinner a simple shirt or a nice blouse is enough.
In addition to the regular, usually one-week sailing yacht trips, we have theme trips with a specialist tour guide in our programme (sailing & history, marine mammal watching), certain weeks for families, active sailing during overpass storms (also across the Atlantic) as well as regatta observation (Les Voiles de St. Tropez) and regatta participation (Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta).
The sailing area is the Mediterranean in summer and the Caribbean in winter.
The trips can be booked as a single person (1/2 cabin (berth) or 50% single use supplement in low season and 80 % surcharge in the high season), cabin by cabin or for families, groups of friends or business events also as a full charter of the whole ship. During family weeks we have special prices for children (see itinerary), on regular cruises we grant children up to 17 years a discount of 25% on the cruise price.
When booking flights, it is good to know that embarkation usually takes place at 6 p.m. and disembarkation on the last day takes place at 10 a.m.
Sailing yacht trips are ideal for guests seeking an individual holiday in a small group at the most beautiful corners of the Mediterranean or Caribbean. As a small niche product we address a relatively large target group. From sailors, who prefer our transfers and one-way cruises, over sailing newcomers, for whom we offer sailing yacht cruises in beginner areas or taster cruises up to families, who are especially on board during the holidays in the Mediterranean Sea.
