Do I need previous sailing experience?

Absolutely not. Climb aboard, sit back, relax and let our experienced crew transport you to idyllic coves and hidden harbours. If, however, you do want to get involved and learn a bit more about sailing, our crew will be only too happy to get you involved.

Where can I go?

Our yacht typically tours the Caribbean in the winter and the Mediterranean in the summer. But the joy of an Amanzi yacht charter is that where you go is entirely up to you. Simply decide where you’d like to start your trip and we will make it happen. Have a browse through our Destinations section for ideas of where to explore. From the spotless white sandy beaches of Martinique to the stunning turquoise waters of Sardinia, we’ve got it all covered. Your bespoke itinerary can be planned out with our team prior to your arrival, and further refined with your skipper once you board the yacht.

What’s included in the charter rate?

Full use of our luxury 56ft Oyster yacht complete with highly trained crew. Your charter period runs from midday of the first day until midday of the final day. All food is charged separately. Other additional costs which may be incurred during your charter include drinks, fuel, local taxes, harbour charges, internet use, waste disposal and personal laundry.

What do I need to bring with me?

Just your clothes, swimwear and any personal items you may require. All linen, towels and toiletries are provided. Better to use a soft holdall rather than a traditional suitcase because it will be easier to stow in the boat.

What safety measures are employed aboard Amanzi?

Your safety is our top priority. All our crew members are professionally trained to exacting standards and signed off by the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency. They are also trained in both First Aid and resuscitation techniques. The boat is equipped with a range of safety equipment including life jackets and life rafts.

How do I get to the boat?

Please book your own flights to get to your chosen destination, but we are then more than happy to arrange transfers for you from the airport to the boat.

Do you allow children?

Yes, we very much welcome children on board Amanzi. Chartering our yacht makes for the perfect family holiday. However, a large sailing yacht isn’t best suited to children under the age of three so it’s probably best to book Amanzi after your youngest child turns four so that you can fully enjoy your charter. It is worth nothing that children will remain your responsibility throughout your charter period, although our crew are happy to babysit in the evenings to give you the chance to go ashore for a grown-up dinner.

What about pets?

Please leave your pets safely at home because we do not allow animals on board Amanzi.

Can I smoke on board?

Smoking is allowed up on deck but not in the seated area or inside the cabin.

What sports equipment is provided on the boat?

We have snorkelling gear on board as well as paddle boards, a two-man canoe, fishing equipment and two different towable inflatables. Hours of fun guaranteed!
