Choosing a sailing route
A crewed yacht charter is tailored to your individual requirements, although we have recommended itineraries to make the most of your sailing holiday. This means that there are no time limits on how long you stay at any location. Every detail, the places you visit, the activities you enjoy are all scheduled just for you. You are welcome to have your own idea about route and discuss it with the skipper. If kids are on board the skipper will adjust the route and maybe make routes shorter.

Their local knowledge is unsurpassed. We have guests who join us year after year and ask for their favorite crews. Your enjoyment is our number one priority and we select our crews on this basis. All Crewed Yacht Charters are child-friendly which means if your children are happy water babies, then you can relax.
What to expect
- If choosing a skipper it is best to book a boat with a cabin for the skipper so everyone can have privacy.
- The skipper is responsible for safe cruising of the boat but not for cooking and cleaning. It is expected that the skipper shares the meals with the guests.
- Expect to assist the skipper with hoisting sails, anchoring, mooring, tacking and other actions.
Even though the paid skipper is responsible for the boat, you are still required to pay a safety deposit for all damages that might be incurred by you and your party.
