Quantum Leap

Jeanneau Sun Fast 37

Our skippered yacht charter packages are a great way for a family or group of friends/colleagues to get out for a sailing adventure, with the confidence and security of having a professional skipper on hand to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time. These trips are suitable for everyone. They are equally good for novices looking to try sailing for the first time through to experienced sailors wanting to go further afield or to practice and develop their sailing skills. With a dedicated RYA qualified instructor on hand, every trip is tailored to your requirements, so everyone can experience an appropriate level of involvement and challenge. On our skippered yacht charter you have exclusive use of our yacht, Quantum Leap, a beautifully maintained and superbly equipped Jeanneau Sunfast 37 luxury sailing vessel. Accommodating up to 8 people (including the skipper), she is comfortable, spacious, and equally at home with offshore passage making or cruising in the Solent. From our base in Haslar marina, Gosport, you could spend your time exploring the Solent or some of the many destinations along the south coast of England. If you want to go further afield, France and the Channel Islands can be reached on a long weekend charter, as can the superb cruising grounds of the West Country. You choose what you would like to do and where you would like to go. Your skipper is there to help and guide and, most importantly, to ensure that you get the most out of your time onboard. Quantum Sailing's skippered yacht charters makes a great family holiday or memorable experience for a group of friends and with costs from less than £35 per person per day (based on 6 crew), this can be the most cost effective way to get sailing.
