Bareboat yacht charter
This is the freedom of the seas in its purest form, where the dream comes alive. Like renting a car without a chauffeur, you must be able to ‘drive’ it, so to charter bareboat, at least one and preferably two of your party must be able to sail the yacht unaided. Help is available if you need it, but on the sea the skipper’s word is law (in every sense), so responsibility rests with him or her.
Sailing qualifications are helpful, but they don’t always tell the whole story. Many sailors have a wealth of experience without certification of any sort. So if you have no formal training it doesn’t mean you can’t skipper a bareboat yacht (subject to local law), but you must have experience of responsibility in sailing a yacht of a similar type, in the conditions you might expect, wherever you plan to charter. If you are interested in bareboat yacht charter, but are in doubt, we’re happy to discuss it with you.
There are hundreds of yachts and an enormous number of different models to choose from. Their prices match this variety, so there’s truly something for everyone.
Bareboat & “Skippered” yacht charter utilises the same boats, simply with or without a professional skipper, and they come in a huge range of shapes and sizes.
