Lucky enough to have greater flexibility with planning, either well in advance or can go next weekend?
We had a fantastic week on The Bali 4.1 and I think you may be right about, “Once on a cat you never go back…” We found ourselves moored one night next to last years 45ft monohull and, while there was no doubt which would win a beauty contest and a purist sailing contest, were so glad to be purring in acres of space on the cat.
Istion were very efficient, friendly and helpful at every stage. Very grateful to you and them for letting us postpone the charter for two years running due to COVID. It was definitely a case of third-time lucky. Always a pleasure dealing with Top Yacht. We’ll be back.
My mate Richard, who recommended you in the first place, will be in touch soon to discuss another booking for us both!
I have to add that MG were so easy to deal with, really good little set up there! And would definitely use them again… it's their people that made all the difference and it was a very small and manageable marina, none of your Lefkas scrums - much preferred and your bang into the sailing area.
The village is really ‘Greek’ and a great place to stay for a few days prior or post, you may want to do a deal with the Villas Balatsouras owners, it’s a cut above for sure!
Thanks again, ping for next year!
Many thanks for your email. We had a great holiday aboard 'Foxy'.
Esra was extremely helpful - contacting us when high winds were forecast [ although in the end, they didn't materialise !] as well as helping to book a berth in Gocek Marina and then notifying us there was a 2-hour wait for refuelling on Friday! It was great knowing she was available if needed. Ibrahim, the boat owner was also extremely helpful, especially on the last day when we needed to check out / disembark promptly due to an evening flight. We would have no hesitation in recommending them both as well as your company.
We had a great time - more enjoyable sailing than Antigua (although we didn’t sail much due to the lack of wind). Tobago Cays is rather special.
Davide was a very good base manager - a huge difference from Dream last year and I would definitely go back again. As for the boat, the extra size plus water maker and generator made a big difference to the trip. I’m not sure about charter plans next year but will get in touch as and when.
Need for Travel Insurance?

It is very important that everybody aboard should have adequate travel and medical insurance, especially your skipper.
A comprehensive insurance policy for sailing holidays can often be hard to find – exclusions, territorial limits, who’s at the helm; the list is endless. It is also important to have a policy in place when the holiday is booked so that if you do find that you are unable to travel as planned, most booking costs can be reimbursed.
For crew, most standard travel policies should cover you for sailing within territorial waters. Please ensure you double-check when purchasing a policy.
Fortunately, an easy option, (for our UK residents) is to take a policy with Topsail Insurance. These policies are designed specifically for sailing holidays. Various options such as annual multi-trip, single and winter sports cover are available at very competitive rates, and even policies for your own yacht.
Policies start from as little as £40 for a week in the Mediterranean, for more information please visit our colleagues at Topsail Insurance here.
Looking for damage security insurance for your holiday?

Most charter companies will ask you to pay a returnable security deposit, usually taken as a credit card pre-authorisation upon embarkation. In the event of any loss or damage to the yacht, an amount would be deducted from the deposit.
This of course exposes charterers to a certain amount of risk, which isn’t always the type of worry one needs on holiday! To negate this situation, some charter companies offer a non-returnable waiver – a little like the excess on your car insurance. If not, our fantastic colleagues at Schomacker offer very reasonable waiver prices which can be taken out online here.
We will advise at time of booking the various options offered by your charter company and which is the most competitive option to take.
