Welcome to Portway Yacht Charters
Explore the scenic lochs of West Scotland with one of our Bareboat, Skippered and Corporate sailing yacht charters.
Our yacht charter holidays will allow you the chance to relax with friends and family, or enjoy a day with colleagues, taking in the beautiful scenery. You have the opportunity and freedom to charter your own yacht, and we can assist you with the itinery, and offer advice on the best anchorages, marinas and shore facilities appropriate for your abilities, and the anticipated weather. We can also provide experienced skipper for all yachts.
We have bases at Craobh, Ballachulish and Kip Marinas, which offer convenient access and a range of facilities. They also offer the perfect place to access the waters, giving you the chance to visit the Hebrides, the Scottish West coast sea lochs, the Firth of Cyde, and Northern Ireland.
Skippers are available for all yachts (subject to cabin space) to provide their expert advice and experience. If you lack confidence or experience, or just want to kick back and relax without the responsibility of being in charge, our skippers are there to meet your needs
"Skippered" yachts can only be chartered with skipper (and mate, usually). These charters can be fully catered and are so are suitable for corporate events, or just for active sailors wanting experience of a larger yacht.
We have a variety of yachts for you to choose from, all of which carry as standard the equipment mandated by the UK Department of Transport Code of Practise for charter vessels. In addition to this they also carry the required number and type of jackets & harnesses, flares and fire fighting appliances, life raft and dinghy, and charts & navigation equipment. All of our yachts also undergo regular maintenance & safety schedules.
