Bareboat Yacht Charters Blog

For this vacation, you want to go on a sailing vacation, but you are being careful with the budget.

If you want to sail a yacht without hired crew members, you want to charter what is known as a, “bareboat.”

If you don’t have enough experience to sail it on your own, another way to sail is through skipper-only charters and flotillas.

On skippered charters, you rent the boat and you hire a skipper (provided by your bareboat yacht charter company, bareboat.com) to sail the chartered yacht for you.  A main consideration in renting the boat will be the number of bedrooms (also known as cabins or staterooms) you will require to accommodate your guest count. 

With a flotilla, a number of boats with hired captains sails together. 

With a bareboat charter, you receive all the standard equipment to be comfortable and safe to sail the boat. Considered a self-catered floating villa, your yacht will have cabins, a lounge, a kitchen (galley), and an outdoor area.

Bareboat vacations are an adventure to last a lifetime.

Basics of Bareboating

February 25th, 2010 | 1 Comment »

Have you ever dreamed about renting a bareboat and just sailing away?

You can do this on bareboat yacht charters!

Bareboats range from thirty to fifty feet in length. You can charter a catamaran (two hulls, very stable in the water and very roomy), monohull (one hull), or powerboat (boat powered by engines, not sails). These yachts come with everything you need to operate them, as well as kitchen utensils, bedding, and towels. Some charters provide you with a dinghy with motor at no charge.

Are you interested in a sailboat or a powerboat for your bareboat charter vacation?

Are you interested in a sailboat or a powerboat for your bareboat charter vacation?

A bareboat is a yacht that you sail yourself, or you can hire a captain (referred to as a captain only or skippered charter), if you wish. 

While you are not required in the Caribbean or the United States to provide a certificate or license to charter a boat, you will have to demonstrate experience and skill (called a “check out sail”) to be allowed to operate the yacht by yourself – otherwise you will require (and will have to pay to hire) a captain to assist you. 

Your bareboat yacht charter company will ask you critical basic questions in order to select the perfect boats from which to choose for your vacation. Those questions include whether you want a sailboat or a powerboat, the destination in which you want to charter, the number of guests in your charter party, amenities required (like air-conditioning), and budget.
