I would really like to charter a yacht for the summer
Do I need to have any prior yachting experience?
No, of course not. You have two options.
You can either book a bareboat charter , which means that you have a certificate and previous experience, or a skippered yacht.
Many of our clients have no sailing experience prior to their trips. This shouldn’t stop you. Sailing should be accessible for everyone. A skipper will handle your boat for the week. They are expert sailors and knowledgeable about each destination ensuring you get the most out of your holiday.
Your skipper will live on the yacht with you for the duration of your trip – bear in mind that you will need to reserve a bed space for the skipper when selecting your yacht. Also you will need to provide three meals a day for your skipper.
I have never been on a boat before. Is that a problem ?
It is helpful if you have been a on boat, although it is in no way necessary. Sailing is a different way of travel and exploration. We use high-quality yachts ideal for extended cruising but please be aware that the living space onboard a sailing yacht is very compact. We aim to make you as comfortable as possible throughout your trip and enjoy your holidays to the fullest.
Can I rent a yacht without a captain?
Yes you can, if you have the required certification and experience. In that case, make sure to inform us that you are looking for a bareboat charter and the rest will be taken care of.
How long does a yacht rental last typically?
A typical rental period may vary among the different boat types, owners, areas and even time of the year.
However, the most common boat rental lasts 7 days, starting from Saturday at 17:00 and finishing on the following Saturday at 09:00 local hour.
Is it safe for children?
In sailing, age has never been a problem.
Give your children the opportunity to learn more about sailing, this will increase their interest, be useful for future yacht charters, and it will also keep them busy and focused for a couple of hours whilst sailing.
Brief your children on the rules on board and do some safety drills with your skipper.
Yachting holidays present the ideal opportunity for family quality time and many families prefer them to traditional holidays exactly for this reason.
You could also let us know,how many children and of what ages will be onboard, so we can arrange for the yacht to be equipped with children's life jackets as well as a safety net (for an extra cost which is paid directly to the owner during check-in).
