Staycation in Style on a Luxury Yacht Charter with West Nautical

As the weather begins to change, we can consider ourselves lucky that while there may be a pin in many of our 2020 travel plans, the magical waters and coastlines of the British Isles remain at our disposal – and never more so than when you embark on a private luxury yacht charter.
West Nautical Staycation

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that the United Kingdom is home to some wild and wondrous anchorages that we can all appreciate now more than ever, with bonnie old Scotland and the sparkling South Coast of the United Kingdom ranking high on the list.

Wake up in luxury and start each morning with fresh coffee and a delicious breakfast prepared by your personal onboard chef.

Next, head to the main deck and take in the spectacular views and invigorating sea air as you cruise towards a destination of your choice.


Home to some of the most remote and spectacular cruising grounds in the world, from the rugged, mountainous areas of the Small Isles to the dramatic basalt pillars of Fingal’s Cave and beyond, this ancient landscape is the perfect place to unwind and escape.

Discover the extraordinary Shiant Islands, home to 1/8 of the UK’s population of puffins. The surrounding waters are teeming with wildlife including whales and basking sharks.

Or why not don your hiking boots and lose yourself in the rolling hills of the Isle of Rum? Nestled next to the anchorage is the red sandstone Kinloch Castle, ready and waiting to be explored.

Return to your luxury vessel in the evening and enjoy freshly prepared local produce, your favourite dram of Scottish whisky and the very best views of star-filled skies while you listen to your captain regale tales of the high seas.

A stop in Tobermory is a must, stepping into the brightly coloured town is a great day trip ashore where you can spot otters and local avifauna, or spend some time shopping in the local boutiques.

Golf fans can enjoy a round at Tobermory Golf Club, or if you prefer, enjoy the spectacular views of the coastline from your luxury yacht whilst keeping an eye out for minke whales, seals and dolphins! Or why not get active and make use of the yacht’s onboard water toys, from jet skis to kayaks and stand-up paddle boards?

After a tumultuous year to say the least, a yacht charter around Scotland offers holidaymakers the remoteness and space to breathe a little deeper and get back to nature.

Your Scottish staycation awaits…


The South Coast of the UK is filled with awe-inspiring natural landscapes, from the towering white clifftops of the Jurassic Coast to the tranquil marinas of Cornwall and Torquay, or the ‘English Riviera’ as we prefer to call it.

Torquay is a sleek and stylish destination with a continental atmosphere. The promenade is lined with palm trees and the waterfront is always alive with activity.

Spend the afternoon exploring the town at leisure or visit one of the nine gorgeous neighbouring beaches. For those with a passion for ‘murder mysteries’ you can even retrace the steps of Agatha Christie.

Head back to your luxury yacht on an evening and enjoy a gourmet meal prepared by your onboard chef with the sounds of the ocean as your background music.

A stop in Cornwall is a must, with its beguiling landscapes made for hiking and world-renowned Blue Flag beaches. Enjoy fish and chips at Rick Stein’s Fish restaurant before heading to the picture-perfect St Ives.

Anchor off Porthminster Beach where you make use of the yacht’s onboard water toys, from jet skis to kayaks and stand-up paddle boards. If you’re feeling brave why not book in for a surfing lesson, you are in the UK’s surf capital after all!

With so much to see and do, the South Coast offers its visitors freedom, world-class coastlines, phenomenal scenery and the ultimate rejuvenating escape.
