Are you counting down the days to your charter yacht holiday? There’s a lot to organize before you go, with packing being one of the most important considerations. As you read through this article, create a checklist to tick things off as you pack them.

Whether you love or loathe the packing part, we’ve got you covered. Here is our essential guide to what to pack when chartering a yacht.


First things first, ensure you have the most important things with you. These include:

  • Passports
  • Cash and credit cards
  • Tickets, Visas, and other travel documents


When you’re thinking about what to bring on a yacht trip, you must consider your choice of luggage holders. Hard-shell suitcases can be more convenient and sturdy. However, there is limited storage space in yacht cabins. Plus, the wheelie kind may damage the delicate flooring of the yacht. Instead, opt for soft bags and backpacks. When you arrive in your cabin, unpack everything into the spaces provided and fold your bags away until the end of your trip.

Additionally, a day bag or beach bag might come in handy for your time onshore. These should be large enough to fit beach towels, a change of clothing, your sun cream, and anything else you might need on your day trip.

Clothes and Shoes

While your clothing choice will depend on your destination and the time of year, there are some essentials that you must pack on your yachting holiday. These are:

  • Swimsuit - Even if you’re not much of a swimmer, you might want to enjoy the jacuzzi or watertoys.
  • Windbreaker - Being in the open sea is windy. A windbreaker will not take up much space but will help to protect you from the elements.
  • Hoodies and jumpers - You will probably want to spend long evenings relaxing and chatting on the deck. Take some warm hoodies and jumpers to keep you cozy.
  • Comfy shoes - Although most yachts have a no-shoe policy (forget about high heels on a yacht!), take some comfy flats like trainers or sandals to wear when you get to land.
  • Rashguard - If you’re planning on enjoying the watertoys like jet skis and inflatables, consider taking some long sleeve swimwear to protect your skin from the sun.

Think about your itinerary and plan your outfits accordingly. If you plan on visiting restaurants onshore, there may be a smart-casual dress code so your lounging yachting gear will not be appropriate. However, always keep in mind the limited storage space you will have.

Health and Safety

Be prepared for minor ailments and pack a DIY medical kit. Here are some suggestions as to what to include:

  • Aftersun lotion
  • Sun cream
  • Plasters and Bandages
  • Antiseptic cream and/or wipes
  • Tweezers
  • Thermometer
  • Painkillers

Also, don’t forget any regular medication, as well as lip balm and insect repellant.


Lastly, here is a list of the miscellaneous, optional stuff that you may wish to bring with you:

Entertainment - This includes phones, tablets, headphones, and cameras.

Practical - Such as goggles, torches, waterproof, durable camera case.

Accessories - Think hats, sunglasses.
