What is a Bareboat Yacht Charter?
With a bareboat charter, you control your trip and sail yourself to destinations of your choosing. Set your own itinerary and wake up with a new view on the water each day. Bareboat charters can be done with monohulls, catamarans, power boats, and power catamarans all around the world. The options are limitless.
How Do I Book a Charter?
There are so many companies and individuals offering charters around the world. Some are small “boutique” charter companies and some are the large charter yacht companies. Social media or personal references are great to help you find a bareboat charter company, but working with a charter broker who can be unbiased and has first hand experience and knowledge of what is out there is the best way to go.
Our Charter Specialists have over 15 years’ experience booking charters throughout the Caribbean and the USA and because of many satisfied customers, have been able to narrow down and work with the “best of the best” charter companies.
There are a Few Things That Will Help You in the Process:
- Let us know exactly what you prefer. Because there are so many options out there, we will want to narrow down the field based on the time of year, number of passengers, the type of charter, and where you want to charter.
- Sit back and relax, and let us do the homework and make the recommendations. Pictures you see on the internet are not always up to date. We have access to the latest information on crews and yachts.
- Make a decision and put an Option on it. That way, we can lock it in before someone else charters it first. We will put the option on it and email you a charter agreement.
- Make the Deposit. Typically, you have up to 7 days to make your deposit on your charter vacation. However, sometimes it’s in demand and your option can be challenged. If challenged, you may only have 24 hours to make your deposit or you will have to release the option. Deposits are 50% of the charter fee if deposited less than 1 year from departure. If you book further in advance, a 25% deposit is normally made with the next 25% due 6 months from departure. The final balance is due 60 days in advance.
