For the experienced sailor, a bareboat charter is a perfect option for a no-stress holiday. Complete privacy on your very own sailing palace with no one to disrupt the serenity of gentle waves and sun rays hitting the stern.
Free choice of port and marinas offer the adventure enthusiast a limitless array of options, be it eating dinner beneath the starry sky or enjoying the quietness of a secluded cove.

What is skippered charter?
Skippered charter is best for all wanting to relax, free from everyday ship duties and responsibilities - just sit back, relax and enjoy the sailing experience. A veteran skipper will be in charge of all manoeuvring and maintenance of the boat.
The hired captain will also provide professional service, both in seamanship and interpersonal communication: he will always act according to your wishes and weather conditions. Renting a skippered yacht is a great choice for a casual
and carefree sailing holiday.
