Welcome to paradise, in your own self-skippered sailing adventure. A Moorings bareboat charter allows those with some sailing experience to plan their own itinerary and sail at their own pace while exploring the wonders of a cruising area that they choose. We'll help you plan a dream vacation with the charter company that pioneered the yacht charter industry and does it best.
The Moorings team knows how to make planning your sailing vacation smooth and trouble-free. We handle all the details, from helping you choose the right yacht for your experience, to planning your itinerary and arranging flights.
- No formal certification of any kind is required to charter with the Moorings. Just complete our brief Sailing Experience Resume.
- Before sailing you’ll receive a full briefing on your yacht and its equipment plus a detailed chart briefing on your cruising area.
- If you wish, we'll handle the provisioning of your boat and provide you with a complimentary Moorings "Friendly" Skipper on your first day of sailing.
Crewed Vacations / Skipper & Cook
Skipper & Cook
Guests who choose not to sail their yacht themselves have the option of adding a Moorings Skipper to their bareboat charter. If you have never sailed before, or if you would like to charter a yacht that is larger than you are comfortable handling, you can still sail the yacht of your dreams - with a little help. Your skipper brings years of sailing experience and a wealth of local knowlege, and will be your ideal guide to the pleasures of your cruising area.
Everyone loves to eat well when sailing, but not everyone enjoys working in the galley. Your Moorings charter cook helps you out by taking on everything from stowing provisions, to cooking and serving meals, to washing up afterwards. When you add a cook to your Moorings bareboat charter, you get more than just delicious meals prepared from the best local ingredients. You get time - time to spend with your family and friends sailing, snorkeling, or simply relaxing.
When adding crew to a bareboat, remember that your crew will require berths and provisioning for the duration of your charter. Since there are a limited number of cabins aboard each of our yachts, please be certain that the number of people in your party PLUS the number of crew you intend to hire do not exceed the maximum for the boat you would like to charter. Your Vacation Planning Specialist can help you choose the perfect boat for your party's needs.
Sail in luxurious style as you enjoy a relaxed itinerary of your own personal design. Timeless pleasure meets effortless comfort as you leave the sailing to your captain and entrust the meals to your private chef. Every hour in paradise is yours to spend swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing at your own unhurried pace.
You'll explore your dream destination in complete relaxation while your crew takes care of everything. Fine meals and light snacks, watersports equipment and an open bar — they're yours at a price comparable to a cruise ship or other all-inclusive vacation package, but with unparalleled personal service.
A crewed yacht vacation is a great family adventure, where children wake to a daily change of scenery and a new world of activities. You'll wander where the big ocean liners can't reach and anchor where the sunset beckons.
