The World’s Leading Ocean Tourism Company
Part of the Dream Yacht Group, we were founded by Loic Bonnet in 2000. We set out right from the start to revolutionize the industry by making sailing accessible to all. We began in the Seychelles with just six boats, and have now grown to 900+ yachts in 40+ exciting destinations worldwide including the Caribbean, Bahamas, Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Asia, Americas and Europe.
Dream Yacht Charter – Worldwide Sailing Vacations
We’ve pioneered ways to help non-sailors discover the freedom of being on the water. We’re also known for our innovation in bringing new sailing destinations to you and sheer range of choice. You can choose from a range of charters, including bareboat, skippered, by the cabin, crewed, sabbaticals, power catamarans and corporate events.
We might have grown, yet one thing remains the same – our promise to deliver unrivaled customer service.

Committed to changing the industry
Sailing responsibly is of great importance to us. For the last 10 years, our Australian base has held an ECO Certification from Eco Tourism Australia in recognition of our commitment to sustainable, environmental practices. We also take part in beach cleans around the world and are working to reduce our impact on the planet where we can.
Since 2019, we’ve been encouraging more women to get out on the water and learn to sail. We’ve been sharing inspirational stories through our #MoreWomenAtSea campaign. Our interviews include record-holder Lisa Blair, who holds the fastest time for circumventing Australia in a monohull, and three times Volvo Ocean Race competitor, Liz Wardley.
Come and Say Hello
Whether you are planning your next vacation or making a big decision, such as buying a yacht, there is much to consider. Sometimes what you really need is a face-to-face conversation with an expert before you dive in. We attend most of the major boat shows worldwide and you can drop on in for chat and advice.

A Word From Our Founder
Loic says: “There’s nothing like inspiring people around the world to explore the ocean. Everyone should be able to experience the freedom of discovering remote bays and islands. The local culture and cuisine are as much of the vacation as the sailing. It is a gastronomical delight plotting an itinerary to fit in as many tempting local restaurants and seafood as possible.”
