Captain Only Charters for your yacht vacation may make great sense if you are chartering for the first time, tired of being the Captain on your vacation, or just looking for a great value with all the amenities of a fully crewed yacht.

Captain only yacht vacations
Your Captain knows the waters!

When you do the math to compare a “Skipper your Own” bare boat to a “Captain Only” charter vacation, you come out quite even, except a skippered boat includes a lot more peace of mind. For example:

  1. Your Captain has the “insider knowledge” of the cruising area and the best private anchorages that a bare boater may not even know about.
  2. Your yacht is equipped with toys and games that a bare boat company will not provide without charging extra.
  3. Captain Only charters have toys on board
    Toys Galore!

    What is included:  Captain, lines, towels, dishes, flatware, cooking utensils, Cookware, Toys listed on each yacht brochure.

  4. What is additional:  Fuel, Water, Customs, Immigration, Food (for Captain), Beverages (Soft & Liquor), Mooring Fees, Diving, Plus Gratuity (15% of base charter fee)
  5. Many Captains will assist in the provisioning ~ Please inquire!
  6.  Your crew does the COOKING & CLEANING!

Note:  Most offer a fully crewed charter (includes food, beverages, cook to prepare and clean up, toys, cruising taxes, mooring fees, water, fuel).  You may also consider a Half-Board (most meals included except for some dinners onshore)…Click onto each brochure for rate information.
