How to choose the right yacht for your bareboat charter vacation

Studying the database of yachts rentals, you should pay attention to many aspects. This mostly refers to the young skippers that sometimes take into account only the cost of renting a yacht.


Key parameters are size and year of construction. While selecting the size of yacht it is necessary to consider how many people are going for sailing vacation and how comfortable you want to spend your time. The year of construction may give you an idea on how likely any technical problem may occur.


The large size of the yacht - more comfortable accommodation of the crew, but it may add some difficulties with moorings and problems with finding berths in marinas (especially during high season and if you didn’t make any prior reservation). Yacht model is not that important when choosing a boat (only in case you do not have any special preferences), since almost all shipyards use similar technology.


If you have just finished the sailing courses and got your Bareboat Skippers License, do not strive to take the large yacht! The larger the yacht, the more difficult it will be to handle it under sails and motor, especially in crowded marinas or during the mooring in an unfamiliar place. Our recommendation is to take a boat of the same size or smaller then the one on which you were trained!

Crewed yacht charters vs. skippered

If you decide to rent a boat, you should pay special attention - who will operate the vessel. Even if you have the right to operate the yacht, it is worth considering proposal on taking a charter with skipper. Especially if you are not experienced enough or do not have the license to operate the vessel, crewed or skippered charter will be the right choice. Of course, to rent a yacht - is a way to breathe freely and plunge into the world of sailing adventures. However, it is important not to plunge into some troubles and to prevent more tragic consequences.


Many are primarily interested in price of chartering a yacht. They look for the ad with "a cheap charter." But you need to rent a yacht with an awareness of responsibility for themselves, their friends or guests with whom you are going to travel, as well as, of course, for the property itself. Especially it concerns services such as yacht rent for a wedding. In this case, it is not necessary to strive for excessive impressions, and, enjoying the sea cruise, entrust to professionals. In this case, rent a yacht with a captain seems the best choice, which will provide you an unforgettable experience with guaranteed security and comfort. "12 knots": yacht club rent top class!
