Tips and Advice for Boat Rentals

The purpose of our online publication is to provide a detailed overview of boat vacations, offer tips for preparation, and explain the process from initial planning to setting sail. When you understand how things work, you can make better decisions in every aspect. After filling out the form below, we will send you the ebook containing interesting and useful information about boat rentals.


    Choosing the Right Boat

    Selecting the right boat is crucial for a charter vacation, as both the interior layout and the level of equipment influence the price you’ll pay. Catamarans naturally offer more living space and are more expensive than monohull boats of the same length. However, they have the cockpit and salon on the same level. Cabins usually come with their own separate bathrooms, enhancing comfort. Request our free guide, and we’ll help you navigate the boat selection process!

    Crew on Bareboat Charters

    If you don’t want to rent entirely on a “bareboat” basis, your agent can also recommend a paid crew for you. We’re referring to a “bareboat” charter, which should not be confused with a fully crewed boat. Even an experienced, qualified client can decide to hire a skipper, allowing for a completely relaxing experience, enjoying sailing and other activities while someone else takes on the responsibility. Alternatively, you can be the skipper, and the added comfort might come from a cook or host/hostess. The document will introduce you to additional amenities available on a boating vacation.

    Sailing Qualifications

    Currently, European Union countries and Turkey require captains to hold official sailing qualifications. If you are the captain, local port authorities may ask you to present proof of your qualifications at any time, so you must keep the original certificate with the boat documents throughout the entire rental period. We’ve compiled a list of what you’ll need while sailing.

    Traveling for Your Boat Vacation

    Charter boats are equipped like self-sufficient accommodations, with all the necessary facilities for cooking, dining, resting, and sleeping. Additionally, all the required safety equipment is available on board. Our strong recommendation is to travel with lightweight, foldable bags. The cabins have furniture where you can store your personal belongings, but a rigid suitcase won’t fit. The ebook will provide guidance on how to prepare for your journey.
