What are crewed charter yachts?
Crewed charter yachts are boats for rent which are manned by at a captain and additional crew depending on it’s size. Back in the 1950’s an English captain – Vernon Nicholson – started to charter his private yacht “Mollyhawk” in the Caribbean to paying guests and the industry was born. It has developed a lot since then and there are thousands of boats available world wide and now ordinary people can also enjoy an affordable Caribbean luxury vacation, basking in the sun while being splendidly spoild. No sailing skills required!
Today’s charter yachts come in all sizes and price ranges and can be found all over the world. You can find sailing boats from 40’ with one guest cabin to 250’ motor yachts accommodating thirty guests and everything in between. Modern sailing yachts are much roomier and more comfortable than the earlier versions and boating isn’t only for agile young people. We have clients ranging from six months to eighty-seven years and everybody has an amazing time!
