Types of Bareboat Yachts 

One of the most typical boats for a bareboat vacation is a sailing yacht. However, you can also rent a catamaran or a motorboat without a skipper. If you want a classic yachting experience, then you should go for a sailing yacht. Motorboats are the best if you need more speed and want to visit several bays, islands, and beaches. And if you are looking for more comfort and space, a catamaran is an ideal option. When renting a boat without a skipper, you need to inspect the seaworthiness of the boat during the check-in. Also, you have to get familiar with the boat’s specific characteristics. Once you are convinced that the boat is seaworthy, you are ready to sail it and embark on your journey. A bareboat charter also means that you have to be entirely responsible for the boat as well as the safety of the crew. If you think you do not have enough experience to sail a bareboat, you can always hire a professional skipper who will help you navigate through the waters.
