We love talking about boats, large and small. We are a small and dedicated team of ex-professional sailors, kitesurfers, and base staff all committed to sharing our knowledge and passion to provide the best service we can. And you can always be assured of our honest advice about where to sail, when to go, and which yacht suits you best.
Whether you’re chartering a bareboat Sun Odyssey 389 or a fully-crewed Ferretti 780, we give you impartial advice on the best value options for your group, destination and dates. And best of all, our services are completely free of charge to our customers. As a yacht charter broker, part of our job is to find you the best possible deal and discounts, to guarantee you get the best value sailing holiday. We work on a commission basis, and pass the provider’s price directly to you, the customer.
Your holiday is precious time, and everyone wants something different from their charter, so we work hard to understand your every need, and tailor every detail to suit you.
When you enquire with Helm, either in person, over the phone, or through our Experience Builder, you'll be assigned a personal charter broker, who will be your point of contact throughout your holiday booking process and beyond. They will be on hand to offer guidance, answer questions, suggest itineraries and use their knowledge to best prepare you for you yacht charter.
Every member of the Helm team is a mad-keen boater, with a breadth of knowledge covering destinations across the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and around the world. Our diverse CVs include industry experience ranging from yacht instructors to superyacht skippers, so we know what makes a perfect yacht charter from all sides.
We make regular trips out to the sailing areas and destinations to meet providers, and inspect their fleet first-hand, so we know everything there is to know about every yacht we offer you. The market is constantly evolving, and so we make a conscious effort to keep on top of emerging trends.
Helm offer unrivalled breadth in the yacht charter industry, specialising in everything from small monohulls to luxurious superyachts. This is a product of our varied yachting backgrounds, which span from 30 to 300ft yachts, across power and sail, monohulls and catamarans. We've spent years building relationships with providers large and small, from family-run fleets in Greece to boutique Croatian companies and major multinationals with thousands of yachts.
We have access to every fleet of yachts under the sun (and there are a lot!), and are well tuned to refining the options to better suit your sailing needs. So whether you're after a Mediterranean escape, a honeymoon in the Seychelles, or trade winds sailing in the Caribbean, we've got you covered.
We go the extra nautical mile to find the best value yachts, so you don’t have to.
We like to think of ourselves as very picky. There are literally thousands of charter companies operating in the world today, and it’s hard from outside to pick the wheat from the chaff.
That’s why we only work with the top 5% of charter companies, the ones we know and trust, whose yachts we have seen and whose maintenance standards meet our stringent requirements.
Our business is built on a foundation of trust, and we only ever work with the very best charter companies. So you can always book in complete confidence that what we say is what you’ll get.
If that's inspired you to book your next sailing adventure, why not use our Experience Builder to create your perfect holiday?
