Bareboat Yacht Rental in Athens.

'Sun-Sailing' bareboat sailing holidays

Information for bareboat yacht rentals

'Bareboat' is the nautical equivalent of 'trekking without a guide'.  A bareboat yacht charter (yacht rental without professional skipper) means that you will skipper the yacht with some help from your crew and you will be the person in charge.  Upon your arrival you will have to deliver the yacht (check-in) and it's equipment from the charter Agency or from the yacht owner . 

From this moment and until the return of the sailboat to the base, you remain responsible for any damage, loss or accident could happen in a port or at sea.  A security refundable deposit (by Credit card or by cash) is requested and retained until the end of the trip.  Bareboats do best when there is some role in the team.

Standard conditions for a sailboat rental in Greece.
