Bareboat Sailing Qualifications, Do I need Experience? The answer is Yes and No. You definitely need sailing experience if you want to command the boat right off the bat. However, if you have little or no experience, you can always take lessons for a few days at the bareboat base, or simply hire a skipper! Bareboating is available to everyone regardless of sailing skill. If you do want to captain the boat yourself, you will need some experience, but you may not need as many qualifications as you would think. While a certified sailing certificate or a completed basic yachting course will assure the bareboat provider that you can safely captain their vessel on your own, many people only need to complete a “sailing qualification resume” to satisfy their requirements. The resume should include your prior boating experience and your present sailing skill. As a general rule, as you feel comfortable with your sailing skills, the bareboat operator will let you take the yacht out on your own. If you feel the need to brush up on your sailing skills (or you need to learn how to sail from scratch), you can always book a short course in boat handling…

Bareboat Boat Classes

Wednesday, 14 November 2018 05:48
Bareboat Boat classes and Bareboat motor yacht classes Monohulls Bareboats Monohull Bareboats generally range from around 28 feet and can go up to around 50 feet. Smaller boats accommodate 2-4 people comfortably, and most of the larger bareboats can host up to at least 10 people with ease. Some monohulls can even squeeze in 12 if necessary. The primary virtue of the monohull sailing bareboat, is that they are best suited for longer distances, especially if you want to go island hopping, and they are the best boats for travelling upwind. There are no real disadvantages to monohulls except that relatively speaking; they are not as big as catamarans. Catamaran Bareboats Catamarans are wonderful when you want to bring everyone! This vessel is ideal for hosting fun family and friend getaways as some catamarans can accommodate 14+ people aboard with room for a skipper and a hostess/cook if desired.

Catamarans are ideal for college students, or large families that want to spend spring break, or even Christmas vacation on the water in a tropical paradise. Another benefit of catamarans are their stability. People who sometimes…

What is a Bareboat Charter?

What is a Bareboat Charter? A bareboat charter is an arrangement for the chartering or renting a yacht whereby no crew or provisions are included as part of the agreement; instead, the people who rent the vessel are responsible for taking care of such things. A bareboat charter sailing vacation offers complete independence and freedom and is your chance to explore new cruising grounds at your own pace. Squeeze in as many overnight stops and daytime anchorages as you like, or take your time and make the most of every destination on your itinerary. On a bareboat charter vacation you have the freedom to discover the best sailing destinations on your own terms.This type of charter is targeted toward experienced sailors and semi-experienced sailors. So for renting a sailing yacht one of the crew must have a valid International Certificate of Competence (ASA and RYA equivalents may be easily converted in your home country). Bareboat sailing yachts are by far the most popular choice. Depending on the size you choose, these vessels can comfortably accommodate 2-12 people. With this option, you are still free to hire a skipper for the first anchorage until you are comfortable handling the boat yourself.…
