Yacht & Catamaran Charter in Largs, Scotland

We can help you find the perfect yacht or catamaran to sail from Largs!

Largs yacht and catamaran charter

Sailing from Largs

Largs is our favourite place to charter in Scotland because it offers brilliant sailing conditions, and is a superb jumping off point to the beautiful and tranquil islands and bays of the Clyde – you’re already some way off the beaten track so you’ll find stunning scenery practically from the word go!

There’s plenty of places to sail to and explore – the Holy Loch, Lochranza, Tarbert, Portavadie, Campbeltown, to name a few - and there are mountains, whisky distilleries, local pubs, and fine dining restaurants to find along the way. The area is non-tidal and benefits from being somewhat sheltered from the Atlantic weather - but it can still offer some interesting and challenging sailing conditions, particularly around the start or end of the season, which runs from April to October.  

Must See if you're Sailing from Largs

 SAILING RATING:  Intermediate / Advanced - there's interesting and changeable weather conditions, plus tides, so some experience is useful before sailing in Scotland. Beware that two members of crew are required to hold qualifications, and you will need an RYA Yachtmaster or equivalent to sail outside the Clyde area.

 MUST-SEE:  Check out our full suggested itinerary below. We'd highly recommend taking in the tranquillity (and whiskey) in Lochranza, a sail around the Kyles of Bute, and a night spoiling yourselves a little in Portavadie.

 WHAT WE CAN OFFER:  We have a great range of yachts available for charter (sadly no catamarans yet!) from our trusted Charter Partners, all available bareboat or Skippered. We can also arrange a Hostess, Personal Chef and other crew.

 GETTING THERE:  The Marina is c. 45 minutes from Glasgow's airports. We can organise transfers for you - a 4 person taxi is c. £ 50 - 60.

 WHY BOOK WITH US?  We only work with the very best professional charter operators , who we have met, know, and trust to give you the same outstanding customer service as you'll get from PlainSailing.com.  

 WHAT NEXT?  Use the pink box to search for yachts or catamarans with LIVE pricing & availability - if you have any other questions or requests, get in touch via Live Chat, the Contact Form , or by phone.

Largs is a great place to sail from to find tranquillity and peace. There’s remote and secluded bays, cosy fishing villages, and unspoilt coastlines bursting with wildlife to be found. There’s the odd ferry that connects the various islands, but in the main, you’ll have large chunks of the water to yourselves.

Largs - 6 day Sailing itinerary

It’s only a six day itinerary because you’ll only get on board on Saturday afternoon, and need time you get provisions sorted and get familiar with the boat, so you likely won’t make way until the Sunday. The boat needs to be returned to Largs on Friday evening (but you can stay on it and check out on Saturday morning), which gives six days of glorious sailing.  

Lamlash

Today we’ll hopefully avoid the Vikings as we beat our way south west down to Arran, or, more specifically, the cute town of Lamlash on its east coast. The wind will be hitting you square on the face as we tacking our way up the prevailing summer winds.

Lamlash is the biggest village on Arran (which gives you an idea of the size of the others) and is notable for once being the training base of the Scottish Commando unit during WWII. The ‘Holy isle’ opposite was once the home of the hermit-monk Saint Molaise, who lived in a cave here. Amongst the more unusual stories about him (apart from living alone in a cave on an island in remote Scotland) is that he died after pulling out an eye-brow hair of Saint Sillan: anyone who saw the eye-brow hair would die instantly, so Saint Molaise;s selfless actions saved the rest of humanity. No, actually.  

Campbeltown

We’re headed around the coast and then hopping west to Campbeltown on the isle of Kintyre. You’ll likely have heard of the ‘Mull of Kintyre’ because ex-Beatle Paul McCartney had a big hit with a song of the same name in 1977 – he actually wrote the song when he was staying at his farm here (which he still owns today) after a messy break-up.

Campbeltown has 4,000 inhabitants, three whisky distilleries, plenty of shops and places to eat, and even a cinema, swimming pool, and its own airport. Obviously, you being sailors, you’ll know that Campbeltown was also the birthplace of Gerald Tait, who won a gold medal in Sailing at the 1908 Olympics (as part of a 10-man team in the 12-metre keelboat class).  

Lochranza

The village here is reputed to have the least hours of sunshine anywhere in the UK (as it is on the north side of the mountain Goat Fell). There’s a ruined castle here to explore, where you’ll often find wild Red Deer, and nature lovers should also be able to spot Grey Seals, Otters and, if you’re lucky, Golden Eagles.

If you’re feeling energetic, you can hike up Goat Fell to get spectacular views of the whole cruising ground (you can even see Ireland some days), or if you’re not, you can head to the Arran Distillery and Visitor centre at the far end of the village, where you can see how they make their famous whisky, and give it a taste!  

Portavadie

Tarbert was a location of strategic importance in these parts which is why find three castles here. It’s now most famous for selling the best seafood in Scotland (The Starfish restaurant is the best in Tarbert), including hosting a seafood festival each year. If you check you charts, you can see that the island is thinnest here – in 1098, Norwegian King Magnus Barefoot couldn’t be bothered wasting days sailing around Kintyre, so had his longboat carried across the 1 mile instead!

But we’re heading over Loch Fyne to finish the day in Portavadie, a multi-million pound marina development where you can pamper yourselves and enjoy the high life after all these days at sea. The marina is just part of a luxury development which includes brilliant toilet facilities, a fine restaurant, and a spa complex complete with an infinity pool with views back out over the water. Bliss!  

Holy Loch

The ‘Burnt islands’ at the top of Bute supposedly get their name because they were the place where Viking Kings were cremated back in the day. It seems an odd place to go for a royal funeral. We’re following the Kyles as we sail in pretty much every direction, before sailing onwards and upwards to Holy Loch for the night.

Holy Loch is so named because Saint Munn arrived and set up a monastery here in the 6th century (on the site where the church currently stands today). The church also has a mausoleum for the Clan Campbell (when the Dukes of Argyll used to reign over these lands), and Elizabeth Blackwell (the first woman to get a medical degree) is also buried here. Perhaps more unbelievably, this loch was also a US Naval base during for three decades (until the end of the Cold war).  

Largs

And then we’re heading back down and past Largs town centre and to Largs marina. Don’t forget to head for fuel before you return the boat back where you found her, and moor her up for one last time. Hopefully you’ve had a fantastic week, the crew have all got on, and you’ve enjoyed sampling the best that Scotland has to offer, in terms of tranquillity, sailing, and whisky!

The restaurant and bar in the marina is great, but if you haven’t yet been to Largs, then it is worth a short stroll, and Nardini’s ice cream parlour there has been serving ice-creams and fish and chips for over 80 years! Enjoy reminiscing about this holiday over a glass or two of whisky, and head to PlainSailing.com when you want to start planning your next sailing adventure!  

Sailing Conditions

Scotland Sailing - Wind Conditions

The prevailing summer winds arrive from the south-west, and have travelled right over the Atlantic to greet you on your boat, and help you power yourself across the Clyde.

In spring and autumn (but to a much lesser extent in summer) then you can also get cold winds and weather systems arriving the north, so it is certainly worth checking the forecasts before you set sail.

If you sail outside of the Clyde area, then you will also need to start to think about tides, (but thankfully the area around Largs is relatively non-tidal).

Largs - Average Temperature

Marina Details - Largs Yacht Haven

Largs Yacht Haven boasts a huge marina with over 700 berths and full support services - including a warm welcome at all hours of the day from their 24 hour staff. The marina is accessible regardless of tide and dry berthing is available. The fuel and waste disposal services are excellent and free wi-fi is available. There is a free car park just across the road to all berth holders.

If you need somewhere to stay before or after your charter, then we recommend the Brisbane House Hotel and Haven House Bed and Breakfast , both located in Largs.

Clyde Yacht Charters

Welcome to Clyde Yacht Charters!

Clyde Yacht Charters operates out of Largs Yacht Haven on the west coast of mainland Scotland, in the heart of the Firth of Clyde.

Stretching from the tip of the Kintyre peninsula in the south to Loch Long and the Gare Loch in the north, and encompassing the islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae, the Clyde offers some of the best sailing grounds in Scotland, and arguably the world. As well as amazing sailing, the Clyde is home to much fascinating wildlife including seals, a huge range of seabirds, the occasional whale, basking sharks and porpoises. We have also had several experiences of dolphins playing in the bow wave – incredible! There is no shortage of dining opportunities and you will find a huge range of hotels and restaurants, many with visitor moorings, offering award-winning dining featuring the freshest possible seafood.

In fact, there is so much to say about the Firth of Clyde that we have given it its own page.

Clyde Yacht Charters was established in 2021 by three friends and keen sailors with many years (decades!) of sailing experience, particularly in the Clyde and the west coast of Scotland. We have been involved in the chartering business for several years.

The yachts we charter belong to us and we have enjoyed sailing them as friends and with our families for several seasons. We pride ourselves on knowing our boats inside out, and demand high standards of comfort and maintenance – we expect no less for our charterers than we do for ourselves. Each boat has an ongoing annual programme of maintenance and upgrades. All our boats are coded to MCA Cat 2.

We would be happy to discuss any issues, offer advice on the Clyde sailing grounds – from planning your trip to destinations, anchorages, facilities and restaurants.

The boats are getting ready and so are we!

We are very much looking forward to meeting our charterers in the next few weeks and months.

SPECIFICATIONS

Zavaria is a Bavaria 35 Cruiser built in 2009 and launched in 2011.

As the first owners, she has been enjoyed by our family since 2014, and has been chartered for selected times during the summer season over the last 5 years.

7.jpg

We have had great feedback from previous charterers and many have chartered her on more than one occasion.

She has been extremely well maintained and no expense has been spared, attending to everything to ensure a great sailing experience is had by all.

This includes replacement cooker (2018), engine (2019) and tender outboard (2019). Through hull skin fittings and seacocks were also replaced with brass fittings in 2020, and with safety always at the forefront, a new suit of lifejackets were purchased in 2020.

Comfortable spacious accommodation in three separate double cabins with two additional berths in the main saloon.

Heads include shower and there is an additional hot and cold water shower at the fold down transom bathing platform for those of us brave enough to take a dip in the Clyde.

She benefits from having an in mast furling mainsail and furling genoa with all sheets and halyards, including the genoa car controls being led back to the spacious cockpit. This makes her an easy boat for short handed crewing, with the auto helm helping out as an extra hand that keeps a steady course, if required.

She had a replacement new Volvo Penta D1-30 (30HP) engine in 2019 and to date has only done some 60 hours.

She has wheel steering and there is an auto helm and Garmin plotter at the helming position, together with the usual instrument cluster information giving added confidence, security and satisfaction to the helm, skipper and crew on deck.

She is an easy yacht to sail and behaves well in any sea state. At 35ft (10.7metres), she is easy to manoeuvre in any of the marinas that you may find on the west coast and is not affected by excess windage that other larger yachts and stressed skippers and crew may have to endure. This makes the yacht an ideal charter boat by offering a stress free time when entering and leaving any of the many stopover locations in the Firth of Clyde area.

For those who prefer a bit more solitude, Zavaria benefits from an electric anchor windlass should you wish to anchor in one of the many sheltered anchorages in the area.

She has a pressurised hot and cold water system, heated both from the engine or shore power immersion heater.

Eberspacher warm air heating system ensures that all cabins, saloon and the heads/shower are warm should this be needed.

The fridge has ample storage for all that you would require for a comfortable week of cruising and there is ample storage under the saloon seats for tins and dry goods, etc.

There is also an electric kettle and toaster which comes in handy if you are hooked up to shore power. The yacht however does benefit from an inverter for use when at anchor or when shore power is not available.

As an added safety feature the yacht benefits from VHF DSC radio plus a hand-held VHF. Good mobile signal is also available in many areas of the Firth of Clyde with 4G and 5G available in many areas if you need to catch up with friends or keep in touch with business interests. This may be slightly compromised in the more isolated sea lochs in the area, of which there are countless from which to choose.

New solid teak cockpit able ideal for al fresco dining and drinks after an enjoyable day sailing.

When going ashore for dining, drinks or a quiet stroll, the fold down transom makes for safe and easy dinghy transfer when moored or at anchor.

The Suzuki 2.5HP four stroke outboard  motor, new in 2019 and regularly serviced, is supplied for the tender to ensure a quick and safe transfer ashore if the exercise of rowing is not to your liking.

In summary, Zavaria is an excellent compact cruiser and is guaranteed to give many pleasurable hours of sailing.

Fair winds to all!

In easy reach you can sail right into Belfast City Centre. There's a Marina so close to the city centre that it's an easy walk. The Titanic Centre is close by. Up the coast there is Glenarm and Ballycastle. Across the bay to Rathlin Isle.

Scotland offers some of the finest sailing waters in the world.

Midnight Mirage, Deja Vue, Boarding Pass, Rona, Moonsong and Lady Naomi are based at Largs on the beautiful Firth of Clyde.

Fidelio, Frolika, Glenmaginn & Morpheus are based at the “North Pier Pontoons” Oban, on the West Coast.

We offer you great access to sailing on Scotland's wonderful West Coast. We offer yachts for charter from Largs, and Oban during the Summer.

These sailing areas, the wildlife and the scenery are all breathtaking! Prestwick Airport is 28 mls  to the South of Largs and will take about 40 minutes by taxi.

Glasgow International Airport is 23 mls to the East of Largs and is a 35 minute taxi ride.

There are also good rail links from both airports.

The Firth of Clyde with its own islands and sea lochs, has many pretty harbours and quiet sheltered anchorages, with visitors’ moorings, hotels and restaurants ashore, secluded beaches, and opportunities for walking and climbing.

For the more adventurous there is easy access to the Western Isles and the Irish Coast, whether through the wonderful Crinan Canal or around the  Mull of Kintyre.

Whichever you choose - you'll enjoy a fantastic sailing holiday in some of the West Coast of Scotland's finest yachting waters. Our Owners take pride in the presentation and preparation of our their yachts and want you to have a great time and come back again.

The West Coast of Scotland is a very attractive proposition and suitable for longer charters. We have positioned Midnight Mirage to many of the Ports, Anchorages & Marinas, including Crinan, Croabh Haven, Kerrera (over the water from Oban) Arisaig and Mallaig. This year you will be able to Charter most of our boats from Largs, Oban Dunstaffnage, or further afield on the West Coast. You can included the Isle of Mull and Skye whist cruising on your travels and will really have a chance to experience the most wonderful scenery and the fascinating wildlife of this part of Scotland. One way charters from Largs are occasionally available with easy access to the West through the Crinan Canal which in it’s own right is a most scenic and enjoyable experience. It is well worth spending at least one night in the Canal, if you have the time. Sailing round the Mull of Kintyre is an option, but if the weather is poor be ready to go through the Crinan Canal. Enjoy! We have had the occasional charter where the destination or the start point has been Arisaig or Mallaig.

If you want it, and we can make it work, then it is yours ! Mallaig & Arisaig are served by rail from London & Glasgow. There is a superb sleeper service that operates from London and is great for Oban and Mallaig.
