Types of Yacht Charters
Bareboat, Skippered, or Crewed?
With yacht charters becoming more and more popular, you’re probably curious about what the buzz is all about. For starters, you must be aching to know the different types of yacht charters and which one is the perfect choice for you.
You can choose from three main types of charters. Kids Car Donations gives the rundown on each one of them below:
- Bareboat yacht charter
A bareboat charter is a basic option. With this, you’ll get a fully functioning yacht that comes with all the necessities for sailing — a full reservoir of fuel, life jackets, ropes, and other sailing essentials. Depending on the charter company you pick, you’d be lucky to get a yacht that has a generator, AC system, coffee machine, or even an ice maker.
Keep in mind, however, that a bareboat charter only allows a party of vacationers that has a licensed skipper or captain among them. If you’re chartering a yacht without any skipper in your group, you’ll be obligated to submit all the necessary permits, certificates, and documents to prove that you can sail on your own.
In terms of destination, a bareboat yacht charter is ideal for places that provide secure shelter to seacraft in case of extreme weather conditions. It’s also ideal when sailing conditions are favorable.
- Skippered yacht charter
A skippered charter is best suited for people who don’t possess a license to steer a vessel or those who just want to do nothing but relax at sea.
If you’re picking this charter type, you’ll have a designated skipper onboard. They will be in charge of steering the yacht and navigating the route based on your preferences. The skipper can also act as your tour guide who can show you the most attractive spots in your sailing destination. If you want to learn sailing, they’ll gladly show you some trade secrets as well.
With a skippered yacht charter, you can leave all the sailing chores to a professional. You can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the trip.
- Crewed yacht charter
If you think having a skipper is good enough, wait until you hear about a crewed charter. Crewed charters are made for people who are looking for maximum comfort and relaxation. How so? Well, as the name implies, you will get a crew. In most cases, the crew consists of a skipper, chef, and cleaners.
It’s up to you to decide on the itinerary of your trip. Just tell them where you wish to go, and they’ll take you there. The same goes for food. You have the freedom to pick whatever your tummy desires. You and your guests will have three meals a day, and by meals, we mean five-star meals.
