Charters

Hire The Swan

Hire The Swan for your own classic sailing adventure. Private charters undertaken in the past have included corporate, family, school and youth groups.

Charters do not need to begin or end in Shetland; in recent years we have undertaken private charters to/around Norway, Denmark, Faroe and Mainland Scotland.

We can develop a package to suit you and your group's needs. To discuss your requirements and find out more please contact us.
