Are you planning a sailing holiday, perhaps in the beautiful waters of Sardinia, and want to understand how yacht rental works?
In this guide we will tell you what you need to know before renting a crewed boat.
It is good to know that the rental of crewed yachts can be either skippered or fully crewed. You also need to know a bit of nomenclature, in fact, depending on the length of the boat, luxury yachts are called superyachts or megayachts.
Obviously if your option is to charter a super yacht with a full crew then your holiday will be superb. The rental of a luxury boat, for exclusive use, will ensure that the holiday is tailor-made with a captain, a chef, a hostess and other useful figures at your disposal. You won’t have to think about anything, not cooking, cleaning, routing, none of this. A yacht holiday, with a full crew, will make you live every moment in contact with nature, all in the name of relaxation and fun.
If you want a personalized holiday, designed on your needs and that meets personal expectations then the option that best responds to these aspects is the charter of a luxury yacht with crew. In fact, even before your holiday begins, the crew receives a complete list of the preferences of its guests, (including allergies, favorite foods and desired destinations, holiday style). The itinerary is decided beforehand, based on the expectations communicated at the time of booking. Proposals can always change based on new indications and the weather. Remember that it is the wind that dictates the pace of the holiday, as well as you.
What if you have pets?
Obviously if you have animals with you must be communicated before, once communicated, you can usually enjoy the company of your four-legged companions.
A yacht holiday with children
Many parents, if they are planning a sailing holiday for the first time, ask us several questions when booking. Worries related to the new environment, but nothing is more stimulating for a child than a sailing holiday. Few rules but precise and children are those who respect them first if explained well and with the right motivation. Moreover, for them, as for adults, living in contact with nature is a unique and healthy experience.
Far from many technological interferences, here they live a great, rich experience, to remember forever. You can also hire a hostess to work as a nanny for your children so you can fully enjoy your holiday and maybe enjoy some night outings.
Crewed rental includes a captain. He was responsible for steering the yacht., plan itineraries and provide you with experience and advice on different destinations and ports. Otherwise, in an unmanned charter, the yacht is guided by the person who rents it, obviously in possession of the necessary requirements, or a skipper license.
Depending on your needs, and the number of cabins on board, you can have a captain, one or more first officers, hubs and hostesses and a chef. Nannies, personal trainers, dive instructors, beauticians, etc.
In short, in a yacht holiday, with crew, everything revolves around you.
