The charter company was very professional and we were satisfied with the boat and the service. We had a battery problem which was not predictable by the charter company, but they immediately reached us and quickly provided solution. Everything was nice, thank you.

Skradin limanindan tekneyi aldik, yeni guzel ve temizligine ozen gosterilmisti. Tekne sahibi ve yardimcisi sempatikti. Her ihtimale karsi goremedigimiz hasar olabilir ihtimaline goz onune alarak tekneyi telefonumuzla video cekimi yaptik. Tekne tesliminde herhangi bir sorun yasamadik, 1-2 bardak kirilmasina ragmen verdigimiz depositodan herhangi bir kesinti yapilmadi.Skradin bolgesinden tekne kiralayan kisilere onerebilirim.

Chartering a Bareboat

Chartering a bareboat presents an opportunity to experience the beauty of the seas, lakes, and rivers at your own pace. Unplanned stops, swimming bays only a few people know, a fishing village with its unique cuisine - they all can be a part of your personal journey when you opt for a bareboat charter or a bareboat rental. Opting for a bareboat, be it hourly, daily, or weekly, grants you complete control over your itinerary. This luxury and the freedom to roam at your heart's content, with overnight accommodation on your private vessel, is just a few clicks away with viravira.co.

What are the popular destinations and routes for bareboat charter?

From the azure waters of the Mediterranean to the secluded archipelagos in Southeast Asia, bareboat charters offer endless route possibilities. If you plan to rent a bareboat 'near me', why not explore your local waterways first? However, if international sailing destinations call your name, consider the following beloved routes.

The glorious islands of Greece top the list, with Crete, Mykonos, and Rhodes offering magnificent views and breezy conditions. Procuring a bareboat for rental here is a no-brainer.

Spain’s Balearic Islands, best visited between April to October, is another renowned bareboat route worth considering. The waters of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera paint a perfect picture of tranquility.

The 'wind of the gods' blowing over the French Riviera, especially around the months of July and August, invites sailors from across the globe. The Amalfi Coast in Italy, with Positano and Capri on its map, presents an ideal route for bareboats for charter.

On the other side of the Atlantic, the Caribbean islands, particularly the Virgin Islands, St. Lucia, and Grenada, provide an unmatched sailing experience. In the Pacific, a bareboat charter to the stunning Whitsunday Islands of Australia won't disappoint. While these are only a few, virtually every corner of the globe has enticing waters to offer for your bareboat adventures.

What is the best time to charter a bareboat?

Chartering a bareboat is a year-round possibility with the Earth's diverse climate zones. A broad way to look at the best time for a bareboat charter is to aim for the local shoulder seasons. These periods, which fall between peak seasons and off seasons, offer a balance between good weather, fewer crowds, and reasonable rates.

For instance, the Mediterranean sees its best sailing climate from May to October, with the shoulder months of May, June, September, and October offering slightly calmer seas and lesser crowds. The Caribbean is alluring throughout the year, but be wary of hurricane season, which runs from June through November.

Ultimately, local weather tendencies, budget, and personal preferences play a significant role in determining the right time to charter a bareboat.

What license do I need to charter a bareboat?

While planning to charter a bareboat, it's crucial to be mindful of licensing and experience requirements, which can vary by destination. Most frequently, a sailing resume displaying your capabilities holds more significance than formal paperwork. However, destinations like Croatia and Greece mandate an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) or an equivalent national certificate.

A VHF license, permitting the use of a ship's radio station, is another common requirement. And, in case of navigating inland waters of Europe, an ICC for inland waters or a CEVNI test certificate proves necessary. We, at viravira.co, provide detailed information about what paperwork will be needed for your specific journey.

What to pack for a bareboat charter?

Packing for a bareboat charter is an art. Space is a luxury, thus taking along only the essentials is key. Begin with suitable clothing - bring lightweight apparel for the day and warmer layers for evenings. A waterproof and windproof jacket is an absolute must.
A comprehensive first-aid kit, prescriptions and other medications, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat are important. Don't forget your swimwear and towels. Reef-friendly sun block and insect repellent can help protect you and the environment. For entertainment, pack as per your interest - fishing gear, a good read, board games, or water sports equipment. Last but not least, include passport, appropriate licenses, payment cards, and local currency. Remember, with a bareboat charter, you have the freedom to curate your journey as you wish.
