In order to give you additional information about chartering, here are some answers to the questions which we most frequently receive.
  1. You do not have to hire a professional skipper if you have the necessary licences and experience in sailing a yacht, except in cases where the vessel is rented exclusively with a crew.

  2. You pay for the skipper, hostess and crew as well as their food, whether you prepare meals on board or go to a restaurant.

  3. You must have a valid skipper’s licence and VHF radio licence, and for some vessels a test voyage is also necessary.

  4. Yes, all boats and crews are insured against possible damage.

  5. Yes, it is possible to charter a boat for a few days, but usually in the period either before or after high season. The usual charter period is from Saturday to Saturday.

  6. In this case please inform us in advance of the ages of the children in order to ensure the appropriate sizes of lifejackets for them. We recommend that you order a safety net for your boat if the children are small.

  7. You need to take with you only your own clothes, towels and medicines. During colder times of year we recommend warm clothing and waterproof jackets. The clothing must be appropriate for use on board, and we recommend boat shoes or boots for sailing in rough conditions.

  8. Every marina has sufficient parking spaces which are monitored during your voyage. Prices vary, but are in the region of €6 per day.

  9. You can obtain provisions for your voyage in one of the many markets which are usually in the area of a marina or in smaller shops in the marinas themselves.

  10. Yes, you may send your order and the charter personnel will obtain your provisions immediately before your arrival on board.

  11. No, it is not permitted to have pets (dogs, cats, birds etc.) on board except in cases where this is agreed in advance. We recommend that you do not expose your pets to the inhuman conditions of staying on board. However, if you do not have somewhere to leave your pet, please send an enquiry in advance stating your needs and we will try to find the best solution for you.

  12. We can arrange additional services for you but only as assistance as follows: transfer from and to the airport or port, car hire, reservation of hotel accommodation, hire (reservation) of a helicopter or small aircraft
