Equipped with large sails and an engine (should you loose the wind), several sleeping berths, a kitchen and many modern home amenities, sailing yachts are able to travel large distances and have the capacity to stay on the water for days. This makes them ideal for entertaining friends, family, discovering new places or adventuring from country to country.

The cost of sailing yachts vary greatly depending on the size, specification and type of cruising that you will be doing. Performance yachts are lightweight and designed for speed; they don't have the same level of comfort as cruising yachts. Cruising yachts are built for comfort and spending longer periods on the water with larger salons, more sleeping berths and other amenities to enhance your enjoyment on a long cruise. More luxurious yachts feature larger saloons, additional berths, a bigger steering 'cockpit', a more functional kitchen, sophisticated entertainment system and powerful engine. Some companies will provide sail and boat packages.

You should also check that the boat complies with the  Recreational Craft Directive (RCD). The RCD sets the minimum requirements of a boat, guaranteeing its suitability for sale and use within the European Union.
