Bareboat Yacht Charters

S48-EXT_DSC3788_bBareboat charters work just as they sound. You are chartering the boat and nothing else. If you are qualified, you can skipper the boat yourself as long as you can show proof of your sailing experience and all of the relevant certification. Our skipper will take you out on a short trip and have you demonstrate your abilities. If you are unable to do this, you will not be able to take the boat without a crew.
Bareboat trips include no supplies or food. You will need to shop before you arrive at the marina.

 

 

Crewed Charters

You will at least have a captain and generally a chef to prepare your meals according to your tastes and preferences. The menu will be discussed prior to the cruising.
Some people choose this method because they aren’t qualified to sail, others can sail but prefer to relax on a yachting vacation and not have the responsibility of being the captain. You will have more time to relax in luxury or enjoy activities like water skiing or scuba diving with a crew to look after the boat.

 

Flotillas
A flotilla is a group of yachts sailing together. This is a great option for less experienced skippers. You captain your ship and gain experience in sailing. The flotilla leader is on a nearby yacht to offer guidance, assistance and support as needed. If this is your first time sailing on your own, a flotilla is an excellent option. Lords Charters can put you in touch with a group and help you plan your trip.water-and-beaches-website-headers-1000x288
