Yacht Charter

Torbellin is now available for both Bareboat and Skippered Charter.

Our Sigma 38 sailing yacht "Torbellin" is ideal for those wishing to charter off the South-East coast of England, or head to the continent for a weekend break.  Torbellin comes complete with lots of creature comforts - electric hob and oven, fridge, kettle and toaster - as well as a functional toilet, basin and hand shower.

When you charter a yacht with Heron Sailing you can rest assured that we put safety first, without compromising on comfort.  Torbellin is fully MCA compliant, RYA-coded and has comprehensive commercial insurance.  Torbellin also boasts a full complement of sails, including spinnaker, which is set on a fractional rig.

Guide price from £250 per day.  Click here for rate card.

Booking Procedure

  • Complete the online Enquiry Form or call us on 01227 392 293 to discuss requirements.
  • Heron Sailing will then email across the Invoice and Charter Agreement.
  • Make payment and return the completed Charter Agreement.

A 25% booking deposit must be made in order to secure the booking.  A security deposit of £1,000 is also required, although this is fully refundable upon safe return of the vessel.  Any outstanding balance must be paid 6 weeks prior to charter.  If booking is made within 6 weeks of the charter, the full balance must be paid upon booking.

Handover and Return

  • Handover occurs at 09:00 with return set at 16:00
  • Charterers have the option of booking an extra evening and joining Torbellin from 18:00 the day before Handover.
  • Handover typically occurs at Ramsgate Marina.
Charterers will receive the vessel in a clean and well presented manner with fuel and water and we expect it to be returned in the same condition.  Any cost to return the vessel to this condition will be taken from the charterers' deposit.  It is the responsibility of the Skipper to ensure all crew receive a full safety briefing once aboard the vessel.


Our yachts have fully comprehensive insurance against usual risks, covering all British coastal waters and the English Channel from The Elbe to Brest.  Charterers are advised to take out private insurance against cancellation, injury, personal belongings and personal liability.
