to one of the finest crusing areas in Scotland. Sail Orkney operates from its base at Kirkwall Marina offering Bareboat and Skippered Charters. This quiet green and fertile land offers exploration and gentle cruising with spectacular scenery. You will find a warm welcome ashore with excellent facilities to match.

Orkney has two distinct cruising areas; over 40 islands and skerries lie to the north of the Orkney Mainland, of which 12 are inhabited; here you will find excellent cruising in relative security and never far from a safe haven.

To the south lies the deepest natural harbour in Northern Europe - Scapa Flow - which is world renowned for it's dramatic wreck diving holidays. Like the North Isles you will find an abundance of natural wildlife and snug anchorages.

From diving the sunken warships of the Flow or hillwalking the heights of Hoy, to enjoying that special meal on Westray or exploring the ancient monuments of Rousay, you will find there's even more to Orkney than fine sailing and beautiful anchorages.

Such is the diversity and delight both afloat and ashore you will need more than a week to soak up the laid back atmosphere and enjoy this unique area at its best.

A Gateway to new horizons - Orkney lies at the hub of a wider North of Scotland cruising area with Inverness, the Moray Firth and Wick to the south and Fair Isle and Shetland to the north. This unique cruising area presents a wide range of options for your cruising itinerery.

Sail Orkney offers the opportunity to explore and discover a whole new world of cruising - bareboat charter, skippered charters and one-way passages.

Our Elan Impression 434, formerly Catherine J, now renamed “Single Malt”, was launched in 2008. Designed by Rob Humphries she provides spacious accommodation, excellent sea keeping qualities, and a fast passage making capability.

One way passages are an ideal way to make the most of your limited time; we could deliver for a start in Inverness, allowing you to cruise up the Moray Firth, calling at Lossiemouth, Helmsdale, Wick and others to cruise the Orkney Islands

- or perhaps -

you might start from Orkney, cruise the islands at your leisure; calling past Fair Isle and finish in Shetland from where you will be able to fly/ferry home and we will collect the boat.

The possibilities are endless, the choice is yours. As a small family run business we are happy to discuss your requirements and will endeavor to make your visit memorable for all the right reasons.
