- Lots of opportunities for boating holidays in the UK!
- It’s not all doom and gloom - British summers can be glorious
- Choose between lots of boating destinations
Have you ever considered the UK as a destination for your next boating holiday?
I bet the answer will be no! I guess the UK’s abysmal reputation when it comes to weather may be to blame for that - after all, who wants to spend time on a boat when outside it’s dark and rainy? Well, let me tell you two secrets - first, British summers can be wonderful! There’s nothing better than sitting on a British beach on a summer day,
enjoying some chilled Pimms or a nice serving of fish and chips. Second, the UK is actually a great place for a boating holiday
. Brits love sailing, and all down the southern British coast you’ll find lots of places offering yachts for hire.
The UK boating capital is Southampton
, famous for being the place where one of the world’s most famous ships of all times sailed from - the mighty Titanic!
From Southampton you can either sail around the Isle of Wight
or follow the coast heading west, passing the Jurassic Coast
until you get to Cornwall
, one of the best places to enjoy the British summer. From there, you can even make it all the way to the Isles of Scilly
, where palms grow thanks to a warm microclimate - see, sunshine does exist in Britain! Planning a UK boating holiday? Take a look at our charter options below!
