A Bareboat Charter simply put is a yacht that is rented without crew or skipper, so you will skipper and navigate it yourself. Consequently, you will take full responsibility for all aspects of the boat and journey: Navigation, Sailing, Mooring, Motoring, Cooking, Cleaning etc. Bareboat charters offer tremendous freedom to go wherever you want, when you want, providing you with a unique and unrivalled vacation experience.
With unlimited freedom comes great responsibility – one of the members must be a certified R.Y.A. Day skipper or carrying an ICC certificate. Bareboat Chartering also require that everyone on board pitches in, so that the charter experience is one of teamwork. The skipper should not only know how to manage the boat, but also how to coordinate and manage the “crew” as well, especially on a sail yacht.
