In order to choose the most suitable charter option, it is important to focus on what are your skills and motivations and those of your group.
You can either just rent the boat handling it by yourself (Bareboat), or chose for a yachting charter with skipper (and a hostess, if needed) or you can take part in a cruise by joining an existing group.
Bareboat charter option is the ideal solution if you have enough sailing experience and want the exclusive use of the boat for your family and/or friends.
Should you choose this option, bare in mind that you are entirely responsible of the boat and of the overall safety on board vis-à-vis of the Ship Company and the Chartering company, who in turn must enquire on the technical skills of the captain conducing the boat and ask him/her for a valid boat licence.
The "Fleet sailing" option means chartering a yacht to sail on specific itineraries in group with other yachts.
This is the ideal option for those who sail as skipper for the first time, representing a perfect balance between independence and safety.
A lead boat with professional crew can help the fleet with manoeuvres and is always ready to intervene in case of emergency.
Each boat can sail independently and then re-join the rest of the fleet in the evening.
