What Our Clients Say

The boat handled really well. Fantastic trip and extremely helpful staff! Would definitely recommend. Thanks for the amazing experience!

– Malcolm, Bute

This was our first time renting a (skippered) yacht and we couldn’t wish for anything more. A beautiful, clean yacht, staff that would go the extra mile for us and a special thanks to our skipper who made this trip unforgettable!

– Aileen, Haddington

Don't use this one

Is it possible to adjust the price if we aren’t looking to book for the whole week.

Yes, we try to be as flexible as possible and if we can we will.

What’s the difference between bareboat and skippered?

Bareboat means you skipper the yacht yourself, although you will need sailing experience and a licence. A skippered yacht comes with a professional captain who will take care of the sailing and the boat for you.

Do we need to take care of food and drinks ourselves?

The boat is hired as a self-catering accommodation. A catering / drinks package is available upon request. The skipper is not the chef (trust us).

Do I need insurance?

We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance with coverage for sailing as an activity.

What do we need to bring ourselves?

You are required to provide your own wet weather gear, please consider all forecasts.

What is expected from us on returning the yacht?

The yacht must be returned cleaned and all bedding is to be placed in the laundry bags provided.

How far can we travel?

The choice is yours depending on the length of your charter.

Are children allowed?

Yes, but at your own risk!

Are pets allowed?

Get in contact.

Well Appointed

Kadore is a spacious, comfortable vessel with berths for up to 6 persons. There are lockers and cabinets throughout. 2 WC facilities and shower. Fully equipped galley

Charter is offered 'bareboat' to experienced persons with a yachtmaster certificate or equivalent qualifications

Skippered Charter can be arranged on request for those who do not carry the necessary certification, or for those who would just like to be guided in the Cruising Area

Inshore cruising

The West Coast of Scotland provides endless cruising possibilities. From small, idyllic anchorages to larger fishing villages and ports with all amenities there is something for everyone. The tidal waters make navigation essential to passage between islands, each one unique and set in the magical backdrop of an extinct volcanic landscape.

Kadore is based in Crinan, a picturesque village in southern Argyll, on the west coast of Scotland at the northern end of the Crinan Canal. The yacht is generally available for charter from early May until the end of September when the weather in these parts can offer some superb sailing. Kadore is a Nauticat 33, a 33ft ketch rig motorsailer built in 1989 in Finland, with plenty of room for 4 persons to be comfortable over any charter period. Her motorsailer characteristics make her an ideal choice of yacht for exploring the Western Isles of Scotland, from Skye in the north to Islay in the south. Whether under sail or powered by her 90HP Ford Lehman engine she can almost go anywhere in any weather. The covered wheelhouse provides all the protection you will need from the wind, the wet and the midges! Heating is ducted throughout the vessel adding an extra level of comfort. The carpentry is teak and other hardwoods throughout and, in keeping with her well appointed interior, smart new upholstery provides comfort in the saloon and sleeping cabins. Two ‘heads’, forward and aft, with shower and wash basins provide the essential facilities. A large galley running the length of the saloon provides the cooking and storage space to prepare all meals. Kadore comes with a 4 person inflatable tender and 2.3HP Honda 4-stroke outboard motor.

Kadore is available for weekly charter, and potentially for shorter periods depending on demand.

The West Coast of Scotland is one of the most rewarding places to go sailing in the world. The sheer wealth of anchorages, harbours, andm mooring facilities means that no matter where you are, you’re nevermfar from somewhere to stop for lunch or formthe night, and you will nomdoubt have had a fun and challenging time getting there!

A weekend charter from Kip would give you the time to explore a couple of places, however don’t get too adventurous with your wish-list of places to go. Covering 20-25nM per day should be fine for you, and before planning your passages, make sure to take the tide into account, as the tide can be very strong in some areas.

If you’re heading out for a weekend, then Rothesay on the Isle of Bute is a great place to head to for the first night. Rothesay is the main town on the Isle of Bute and there are pontoons for pleasure craft as well as a ferry terminal connecting Bute with the mainland. Rothesay is home to the most extraordinary Victorian washing facilities just next to the harbour. They are an attraction in themselves and well worth a visit. There are a couple of pubs near the harbour and there is also a supermarket and a lovely Victorian Garden to go to too.

Weather permitting on the Saturday, sailing through the Kyles of Bute a special experience however it can get very shallow at low water, so again, keep an eye on the tides. Following Bute down on the Western side, you’ll come out at the Sound of Bute with the majestic Isle of Arran facing you and the long arm of Kintyre opposite.

Another great place to stop for the night is West Loch Tarbet, or if the tide and time are with you, head up to the mouth of Loch Fyne and find any one of the magical anchorages there. West Loch Tarbet has a fantastic bakery at the bottom of the marina - again, there are pontoons here. There are also a couple of welcoming hotels with decent stocks of whiskey.

Sunday and you need to be thinking of heading back to Kip. If you have time, then sail towards the northern tip of Arran to catch a glimpse of Lochranza, and you won’t be disappointed. It is a relatively easy sail back to Kip.

Another alternative to this itinerary would be to head up towards Loch and Holy Loch, home to submarines on exercise. This area is much more built up, with more boats, more ferries, more subs, and more densely populated. A better West Coast experience would be to head a bit further out.

Although sailing in August in most countries would be an opportunity for some bare - foot, T - shirt sailing, this is not necessarily the case. You do need to take full oilskins, a mosquito net for your face and a good pair of gloves. The weather is very changeable on the Clyde, but as long as you are prepared, this is not generally a problem. If you have luggage restrictions then you can hire wet weather gear from Kip, but we need to know this in advance.

Isle of Colonsay – yacht moorings

Colonsay Community Development Company is delighted to be welcoming yachts to 6 visitor moorings; a community-led enterprise. Queen’s Bay is a tranquil spot; offering no facilities, but the best shelter on the east, and spectacular views across to Jura. It’s an ideal base from which to explore the island and the white sands of Oransay also on a day trip. Use is first come, first served. Suitable for vessels up to 45ft in length or 10 tonnes, and available from early April until late October. On foot with sturdy footwear, a walk over rough ground brings you to Colonsay’s hotel & bar restaurant, or around the headland into Scalasaig where you’ll find our island shop and welcoming Pantry. Our island’s power supply comes along the submarine cable at Queen’s Bay - a sheltered anchorage. Dropping anchor is possible in the case of a mooring not being available, however we join SSEN in discouraging yachts from dropping anchor near to where this cable is plotted – please refer to marine charts. Thank you for supporting our small community through your use of the mooring. Whether you’re staying for a week to explore, or just an afternoon, we hope you enjoy Colonsay! For closer access to Scalasaig village amenities, please check Calmac’s harbour guidance for tendering ashore there: https://www.calmac.co.uk/Colonsayharbour

Clyde Yacht Charters

Cruise the west coast of scotland.

“So many places to drop your anchor and relax…”

skippered yacht charter scotland

Deep Blue is a Bavaria 46. She is great fun to sail and very spacious with 4 cabins which can accommodate 8 adults in comfort.

skippered yacht charter scotland

Lotus is an Ovni 43. Made of aluminium and with lifting keel and rudder, she is a 'go anywhere' boat. And with 3 full cabins, you can take some friends with you!.

skippered yacht charter scotland

Avocet is a Bavaria 37. She is easy to sail and, with 3 cabins, is a great choice for up to 6 adults to get out and enjoy the Firth of Clyde area.

“From the initial booking enquiry to unloading the boat I felt we were in safe hands. The two boats, Aurora and Deep Blue and the skippers performed great, the weather wasn’t perfect for sailing but we made the most of what we had. For anybody wanting to try sailing on the West Coast, do try Clyde Yacht Charters! .”

Clyde yacht charters..

Clyde Yacht Charters was established in 2021 by three friends and keen sailors with many years (decades!) of sailing experience, particularly in the Clyde and the west coast of Scotland. We have been involved in the chartering business for several years.

The yachts we charter belong to us and we have enjoyed sailing them as friends and with our families for several seasons. We pride ourselves on knowing our boats inside out, and demand high standards of comfort and maintenance – we expect no less for our charterers than we do for ourselves. Each boat has an ongoing annual programme of maintenance and upgrades. All our boats are coded to MCA Cat 2. We offer skippered or bareboat charters.

We would be happy to discuss any issues, offer advice on the Clyde sailing grounds – from planning your trip to destinations, anchorages, facilities and restaurants.
