We can't guarantee the weather but otherwise we'll do our very best for you! Here are few of the reviews we've received over the last few years:
"Everything went well - really really nice spacious big yacht... the boat was immaculately clean and in perfect order. We will definitely be using you again if that's OK with you."
John Parkes and friends chatered Calico Moon
"Thanks again for a good weekend and a well maintained yacht."
Simon Arowsmith chartered Calico Moon
"Wilson, we appreciated the taut and seamanlike nature of the boat - a pleasant contrast to some of the more flabby boats on the Solent!"
Phil Lapage chartered Calico Moon
"We really enjoyed the week and the boat was excellent. We will definitely come back in future."
Peter Millican and friends chartered Calico Moon
"We chartered our boat – Spectre – a 42 foot Sun Odyssey boat, from Sailaway in Largs for a week. The boat was in excellent working order. Everything was well maintained, and we were impressed by the quality of the sails and especially the spinnaker. She sailed well and the week was fast, and was easy to handle. The booking, handover, and chartering process was very easy and professional. The team were most responsive and on-hand when needed. All in all we had a great time, and would gladly charter Spectre again."
Peter Groegl, Austria
"Once again, it was a real pleasure for the whole crew to sail in Scotland and I hope we will come again. "
"Our sailing week in Scotland is already history. We had a good time with no big trouble on our journey from Oban to Largs...Thank you for the good and uncomplicated service."
"Thanks for the charter - Deja Vue is a fantastic boat. We had her up at 9 knots in all sorts of weather - a fantastic few days. We'll be in touch again".
"Deja Vue is a splendid boat: she handles well and her accommodation is very comfortable."
"Hi Wilson, hope you have had a great trip back.... I just wanted to say thank you again for making this great trip possible at rather short notice. We thoroughly enjoyed sailing Deja Vue from Largs to Dunstaffnage, she is a great boat in perfect condition – and more than that, she is really well equipped in terms of details like jackstays, sufficient lines and fenders, an efficient set of electronics, a well-marked anchor-chain, etc. Likewise, the service has been great, we felt very welcome, and the handover was professional and smooth. We hope to return soon for another charter!"
Holger Emmel chartered Deja Vue
"Deja Vue is a great home from home, and comfortably sleeps eight in her four cabins. She sails well in a reasonable wind, and we often achieved 8.5 knots with ease, compared to 7 under motor. The bowthruster is a helpful assistant - in the Scottish Islands Peaks Race you have to pick up your runners from the dinghy without using the engine, and the bowthruster kept her head-to-wind for me. In our week, we visited Rathlin Island the first evening, then Loch Tarbet on Jura, through the Corryvrekan to Oban, then Salen on Mull, Craighouse on Jura, Rathlin once again, Arran, Troon, and back to Largs. We plan to use her again."
Patrick Erdal and team
"...what I will remember from DEJA VUE is that it is a great fast going yacht to sail, with everything working perfectly!"
Eric van Kalmthout, France
"Déjà Vue sailed particularly well, especially to windward. The facilities on board were presented in high order, the stove worked particularly well and we found the galley equipment catered for the eight of us on board comprehensively. Impressive yacht and would look to charter her again next year."
"We throughly enjoyed sailing Disk Drive and will be back next September."
"Thanks again. We had a great charter experience and you were very easy to communicate with."
Gary Bishop, Vancouver
"Some might think organising for a group of 17 to charter two yachts for three days might be a logistical nightmare....not with Sailaway Scotland! Both Andrew and Wilson were extremely accomodating both with dates and boats when both were altering by the day. The flexibility and friendly advice helped no end in selecting the perfect duo of boats and suggested itinerary. Both Calico Moon and Aurora were excellent vessels packed full of features which made the trip a joy and a pleasure. With both boats benefiting from self furling mains and genoas the boats couldn't be easier to sail. The
spacious interior of Calico Moon provided the perfect boat for a crew of 10 and the slightly smaller Aurora a crew of 7. Both boats have brilliant swim platforms which makes launching the tenders a breeze, especially so with the handy tender lashing
points on the stern of Aurora.
"All aspects of the charter service we received were top notch, the booking, the handovers, hiring of oilies and the boats. We were met with a warm welcome and encouragement wherever we went which puts Largs at the top of the list for our next yachting adventure. We spent the journey home dreaming of our next charter!
"Thanks Andrew and Wilson!"
James Read and stag party
"This is to thank you once again for a fantastic week on Aurora. The six of us had a great time on a very comfortable boat that was easy to sail. I was particularly impressed with the level of equipment and especially in the galley - as good as I have ever
encountered. This was greatly appreciated as the crew included a couple of keen cooks. I would unhesitatingly recommend you to others looking for a similar week's cruising.
"We wanted to write to say how impressed we are with the service we received from your company through the whole process of the Charter. From the moment of booking the boat where you showed flexibility on dates from your brochure to paying deposits and fees to the relaxed but very professional hand over, the clean and well set up boat, the hand back were all a cut above the normal Charter company. We have been chartering for 25 years plus in many different places and we all agreed this is the best area with the best boats . It just a shame it has taken 25 years to discover it, where else can you go with 25 plus knots of wind sailing at 9 knots with the sea state being slight with beautiful scenery and lots of harbours with wifi? We will be booking next year."
"We did indeed have a fab time, already looking at next sailing adventures.
"Many thanks for everything."
"We chartered Zavaria for a one week cruise around the Clyde, and from start to finish the experience was brilliant. The hand over with Alan was very thorough and friendly and Sailaway made sure the whole crew were comfortable with the boat before we left. The boat was clean, well maintained and had absolutely everything you could want for an enjoyable sailing holiday. I have no hesitation in recommending Sailaway and Zavaria, a great company and a great boat.
"Thanks again for letting us use your boat and hopefully we'll see you again in the future."
"Another good time in Scotland, At my third trip with this well equipped boat we attempted to round the Mull Of Kintyre, but the westerly winds brought us to Campbeltown and later to the many scenic places in Firth Of Clyde like Loch Ranza Bay, the Kyles Of Bute, or Tarbert Harbour.
"Assisted by the competent team of Sailaway and impressed by the highlights of the tour (such like meeting friends from Germany in Rothesay) we mastered this trip and will come back to this fantastic sailing scenery as soon as possible."
Jochen Nüchter, Germany
"...it was a most enjoyable week and we had a great time aboard Avocet. She was in a really good state and a pleasure to sail in the wonderful waters of the Clyde."
"I should just like to say how much we enjoyed cruising in Avocet recently. The boat is comfortable, very well equipped and handled well in a variety of conditions. It was good to re-visit the places which we know well after many years sailing in the Clyde area. There's nothing to beat the West Coast of Scotland!"
"Hi Wilson - we all had a good time. Zavaria is a great boat, very comfortable and sails well. Hopefully be back soon."
"We had an excellent week out on Zavaria!"
"Many thanks for setting us up with Zavaria, a tidy little boat. Great weekend.... we will be back..."
"Aurora was the best equipped yacht I've ever chartered. New sails, perfect safety and navigation equipment and even the galley was appropriate to prepare an original Bavarian "Schweinsbraten" (roast pork)."
