What type of sailing excursion?

If you are an experienced sailor, then there is no need to worry about documents or licenses required to do so.

However, if you have no nautical knowledge at all and just want to have little or no responsibility on board a yacht, then you will need to hire a chartered yacht with a crew.

Or, maybe you just want a simple sailing adventure instead of a luxury voyage, then a captain, chef, and deckhand may be all you need. Where do you find qualified people to make up a crew? There is no need to worry, the skipper or captain will take care to find a professional team in order to make you have a wonderful sailing voyage:)

Plan with the Captain

As you make plans with the captain or skipper of the vessel, this is the time to explain your expectations and needs during your yachting holiday.

The captain selects a First Mate, Chef, Chief Hostess, and Chief Engineer as the skeleton team for your chartered yacht and then additional crew members are increased as needed depending on the size of the yacht and the needs of the vacationers. You can as well plan an itinerary with the captain and tell him where you wish to sail. It will be a pleasure for him to bring you to the finest destinations of your choice depending on the weather condition, of course!

 After the Reservation?

Once the reservation is confirmed the captain will staff the yacht with experienced, professional people. You will find that your chartered crew is knowledgeable in where to go and what to do once you arrive at your sailing destination.

An experienced crew will point out the best places to eat or scuba dive so you can get the most out of your sailing holiday. They will also ensure your chartered holiday yacht is well taken care of while you serenely enjoy the ride.

What Can be Requested?

If there will be children on board, request a babysitter so you can have some down time. Are you interested in deep sea fishing, or maybe you and your guests are planning to take this vacation learning to scuba dive, then you can request instructors with the expertise to be included in the crew?

What if there will be a wedding on board and a hair stylist is needed, one can be requested in the crew as well. As you can see a crewed yacht is composed of members to take care of your needs and the number of crew members can be increased as needed.

When you charter a crewed yacht, you eliminate the apprehension of what is needed to be completed on the yacht, and who is going to do it.

A crewed yacht allows you time to sit back and truly enjoy your sailing vacation knowing you’re every need is being taken care of for you and your guests. Can you think of a better way to enjoy sailing to an exotic destination?

  2. Hi Daniella,

    Wow – this post is great.
    Inspires me to look into a chartered crewed yacht holiday – I had not previously given it much consideration. However, the photos – especially the first two – and the information you presented has certainly given me the inspiration.

    Thank you Daniella for a unique website.
