The Moorings Charter Options

 

Charter Bareboat - Skipper Yourself, Sail or Power

If you have sailed or boated previously, even if you have not spent much time as captain, you will likely qualify to charter one of our yachts. An understanding of basic seamanship, boat handling and navigation is all that is required for a yacht charter in many of our locations.

No formal certification is required for most regions. By completing our Sailing or Boating Resume aand submitting it online, we will immediately inform you what size yacht you qualify to sail with us and which destinations are appropriate for your experience. Formal Qualifications are required for our destinations in the Mediterranean and in Belize. Please see the links to the right to learn more.

We will ensure you are completely comfortable before you leave the dock. Prior to departure, you will receive a detailed Charter Briefing on your cruising area and a full Yacht Orientation aboard your yacht on its operation and equipment. If you wish, we will even provide you with a complimentary Moorings "Friendly Skipper" who will join you for up to a half-day on the first day of your trip at no additional cost.

If you would like a hand familiarizing yourself with your yacht, or brush up on your crew's sailing skills, The Moorings provides an optional "Friendly Skipper" who will join you for up to a half-day on the first day of your trip at no additional cost.

Charter with a Skipper - Sail or Power

A charter with the option of a Moorings Skipper is an excellent choice if you have never chartered before, want to book a yacht that's larger than you're comfortable handling, or simply want more time for rest and relaxation.

You can still charter the yacht of your dreams — with a little help. Leave the work and responsibility to your Skipper, or choose to take the helm under the Skipper's guidance. With years of cruising experience and a wealth of local knowledge, our Skippers are the ideal guides to your cruising area.
