Charter Type: Bareboat Charter

A bareboat charter is a yacht charter in its most basic form. Like car hire, all you’re doing is hiring the use of a yacht for a given amount of time. Everything else is up to you – food, berthing, fuel and most importantly skippering. To take on a bareboat charter, you have to be appropriately qualified. Most regions require you to hold an “International Certificate of Competence” (ICC for short). You can acquire an ICC through a practical assessment or by writing to your national governing body with proof of holding a higher-ranking qualification. In the UK, a RYA Day Skipper Certificate of Competence or any Yachtmaster practical qualification is acceptable.

Enjoy the freedom of sailing and be the captain of your own ship, granted you have the necessary certification. Independent, private, and cost-efficient, because you won’t need to pay a skipper and crew.
