Bareboat Charter is maybe the most popular type of yacht charter, thanks to its ability to sail at your own pace and having the freedom to create your own itinerary, depending on your needs, preference, and experience.
In contrast to other charters, Bareboat Charter is a yacht charter without crew. In order to be allowed to Bareboat Charter one or ideally two members of the party must hold a valid sailing licence and/or a sailing resume (for the Caribbean specifically). The full qualifications required depend on the destination desired and the size of the boat (boats over a certain size require a crew).

The best thing is that you can bareboat charter all over the world from a wide variety of boats, including Catamarans, Motor Yachts and Sailing Yachts.
