About Us

DBI Worldwide Yachting was originally established in 1997 by Simon Gilmore who enjoyed many successful years in senior sales management roles with a number of blue chip organisations. His understanding of challenge, motivation and achievement is second to none. Simon’s unique skills in motivating and driving people to succeed formed an excellent platform for this company, which in its corporate activities, specialises in building strong teams and developing people in business today.
For private sailing holidays, everything is tailored to the requirements of our guests.

Simon is a highly experienced yacht skipper and has earned a fantastic reputation for his skills and seamanship. He is a skipper in UK and international regattas, organises and instructs in corporate events, made 2 Atlantic crossings to date and skippered for many charter clients in the UK, Mediterranean and Caribbean islands.
He sees clients regularly returning to sail with him and has inspired many people to become keen sailors. 

DBI has a team of highly experienced skippers and crew who take great pride in offering a professional and friendly service.

DBI Worldwide Yachting specialises in Skippered and crewed yacht charters.
The success of this business has grown by its reputation.
Attention to detail, personal and professional service has seen our guests returning to DBI for their sailing holidays year after year.

Bareboat charters, or self-sail charters, are also available to people who have the qualifications and experience to sail without a professional skipper.

"In a business world where most companies spend a large percentage of their time managing uncertainty, where competition is tougher than ever before, world affairs interfere with the progress of healthy business and the financial markets are constantly volatile, we must work hard to hold onto the most crucial part of our business, our people. Without good people, clear guidelines and goals, you are sure to fail and if you are serious about your business, then you must remain passionate about your people. DBI Worldwide Yachting is all about adding value and fulfilment to the lives of people in business today and therefore developing a sense of achievement and the desire to win against all odds".
