Charter Owners may add their vessels to this list by email to Tradboat. There is no charge for inclusion as above, but suitable banners or expanded entries and links are available..

Several classic yachts may work together to provide a day of mixed sailing.  Very large parties might find sailing barges an alternative in that they carry perhaps forty people for day sailing. Many classic craft provide on-board tuition and several have themed cruises - bird watching or similar.  Except in very special circumstances a professional skipper and crew are provided.
