A bareboat charter is when you charter (rent) a yacht, and you are in charge yourself, with no skipper as a guide. You need a proof of adequate competence, like a sailing license. Exact requirements vary from destination to destination. If you need a skipper, just tell us during the booking process and we will offer one for you.
Off course you can also join a flotilla and know that you are in safe hands of the leadcrew but you have a lot of freedom to explore the area for yourself. Gofunsailing offers more than 8000 bareboat yachts and catamarans everywhere where it is warm and worth being afloat. The range of sailing yachts that we offer is very extensive everywhere. If for any reason, you cannot find what you are looking for, just tell us and we’ll make an offer for you.
The wind can be stronger in one destination and another destination offers more for families with children.
Important! To charter a yacht you need a sailing licence. It is a requirement that your skipper has a qualification equivalently to an RYA Day Skipper or higher. You will need to take the original of your sailing qualification with you and you are not be allowed to sail without this. If you are interested just contact us and we are happy to make an offer for the destination where you are interested in!
