At our sister company, SailAway Yacht Charters, we recently read about a superyacht app launched by Heesen Yachts that allows users to browse an extensive gallery of Heesen’s latest launches, and their crewed yacht charter vessels in the SailAway fleet.
That made us pause and think about apps more suitable to bareboat yacht charter enthusiasts.
We are pleased to report, whether you are planning a Virgin Islands yacht charter or a bareboat excursion closer to home in the good ol’ US of A, there are now many more reasons to take your Android or iPhone with you. An increasingly wide range of special apps for sail bareboat enthusiasts can prove very useful indeed. We have selected some of the best for your consideration.
