Kaptan Metin Bey ve miçomuz Hüseyin ile çok keyifli bir tatil geçirdik. Kaptanımız aynı zamanda aşçı idi. Yemekler çok lezzetliydi. Köpeğimizle beraber teknede kaldık. Köpekle beraber seyir yapmak için teknedeki alan çok müsaitti. Kaptanımız ve miçomuz bizi ve köpeğimizi rahat ettirmek ve her türlü ihtiyacımızı karşılamak için çok yardımcı oldular.

Her şey yolunda ve keyifliydi. Tekneye gitmeden önce tekne sahibi ile görüşerek menümüzü oluşturduk. Menü üzerinden ekip bizim adımıza alışveriş yaparak tekneyi hazırladılar. Hava şartları biraz kötüydü ama buna rağmen kaptan elinden gelenin en iyisini yaparak bizi en keyifli ve güzel koylara götürerek gezdirdi. Yemekler lezzetli ve istediğimiz gibiydi.

Chartering a Skippered Yacht

Setting sail on a sumptuous and elegant skippered yacht charter offers the very epitome of luxury, relaxation, and adventure. Whether exploring new destinations, celebrating a special occasion, or simply indulging in the unmatched freedom of the open sea, a skippered yacht charter provides the ideal setting. With options for hourly, daily, or even weekly rental periods, and choices between private, bareboat, or all-inclusive hire models, every sailing enthusiast, regardless of their experience or skill set, can savor this unique experience.

What are the popular destinations and routes for skippered yacht charter?

Opportunities for charting a skippered yacht are virtually infinite, spanning across all corners of the globe. From the tropical paradise of the Caribbean, with its turquoise waters and lush landscapes, to the mystical charms of the Mediterranean Sea, skippered yacht charters offer voyages steeped in richness, culture, and natural wonder. Those who rent a skippered yacht may be drawn to the stunning coastlines of Italy or the enchanting Greek Isles. Alternatively, the azure waters surrounding the South of France may call, or even exploring the exotic beauty of South East Asia’s nautical playgrounds.


Across the Atlantic, Florida and the Caribbean are favorite destinations for skippered yacht charters. The renowned Florida Keys are a treasure trove of marine wildlife and sun-kissed beaches. Meanwhile, the Caribbean presents a rich tapestry of vibrant cultures, breathtaking vistas, and diverse sailing conditions. From the lively carnivals and coral reefs of Trinidad to the secluded bays and fine dining of St. Lucia, the Caribbean is a dream sailing destination.

What is the best time to charter a skippered yacht?

The best time to charter a skippered yacht greatly depends on your chosen destination and personal preferences. If you’re heading to the Mediterranean, the ideal time is typically between May and October when the weather is sunny and warm, perfect for enjoying the sun-soaked beaches, historic towns, and vibrant nightlife. However, to avoid the crowds and enjoy quieter marinas, the shoulder months of May, June, September, and October are highly recommendable.


For those seeking Caribbean adventure, the peak sailing season runs from mid-December through to April, providing beautiful weather and avoidance of the hurricane season. Some brave sailors enjoy a quieter Caribbean sea during the summer season, where tropical storms are possible but not necessarily frequent.


However, it's not just about the destination, but also about the charter model and rental. If you want a private, bareboat, or all-inclusive charter, it's best to book well in advance, especially for popular periods like summer or holiday seasons. You can also find last-minute deals if you're flexible with your plans.

What to pack for a skippered yacht charter?

Packing for a skippered yacht charter with overnight accommodation is a balance between comfort and practicality. Casual, comfortable clothing is a must, with contingency for cooler evenings at sea - a windbreaker or light jacket can provide welcomed warmth. For warm-weather sailing, a hat, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreens are essential. Water-friendly footwear is also helpful when embarking and disembarking from the skippered boat rental.


In terms of entertainment, most skippered yachts for charter come equipped with high-tech sound systems, but it can’t hurt to bring along extra entertainment. This may include board games, favored music, or a good book. Also, bring your favorite snacks, although remember that most skippered yacht charters attend to your catering needs – another appealing benefit of the rental.
