Bareboat Yacht Charter

You’re at the helm. The world at your feet.

Set sail on a bareboat sailing vacation and enjoy exploring new cruising grounds from the helm and at your own pace without a set itinerary or pre-planned schedule. Decide on as many or as few overnight stops and daytime anchorages as you like and take time to make the most of every destination on your list. Self-drive your sailboat and enjoy the freedom to discover the world’s best sailing destinations from the helm.

You can opt to sail one of our suggested itineraries in your sailing destination or strike out on your own in search of adventure. In addition to your boating resume completion during the planning stages of your trip, you’ll have a thorough chart briefing prior to departing the base where cruising suggestions and safe boating guidelines for your destination will be addressed by our staff. We ensure you are comfortable and qualified as the Captain before leaving the docks.
