traditional boat, or big sailboat, or big catamaran.

Choice 2 - Bareboat. Sailboat without crew / without local skipper:
It is required: 2 sailing certificates, or 1 certificate and 1 signed declaration proving a sailing practice.
If you are a qualified with sailing experience, then you can charter a bareboat yacht. Therefore, you will be the skipper and the responsible on board with the help of your crew. Check in
& Check out.
Choice 3 - Bareboat skippered. Sailboat without crew, with a local skipper
It is desired: 1 certificate or
1 signed declaration proving a sailing practice, (if any or nothing). Skippered
charter means that you hire a local skipper and you remain the second skipper on
board. This will relieve you of responsibilities for the yacht and gives you a
24 hour guide.
The local skipper is not a permanent crew of the sailboat. It is proposed as professional on board by the yacht owner, or, he can also becomes part of your group.
The skipper fully assumes his responsibilities while sailing for the safety of passengers and of the sailboat, and you remain responsible for yourself, (we propose a personal insurance for the duration of your cruise).
You can participate as you would like, but also you can turn
your attention to being closer with your family or friends. Best choice
for families with children on board. The skipper will not clean or do groceries but a hostess will.
Choice 4 - Cabin charter +half board. Sailboat without crew, with a local skipper.
It is desired: 1 certificate or 1 signed declaration proving a sailing practice (or nothing). This is the cheapest and easiest way to enjoy hands on sailing without the hassle of complicated advanced of planning. You are chartering a double cabin or a single berth with 'half board’. This option is more suitable for singles, couples and small groups of friends. You share the same boat with others who have the same interests as you. You are following a pre-fixed sailing schedule. No deposit required no responsibility on navigation, no Check-in, no Check-out.

One way Charter: (Bareboat or Skippered)
Choosing one way cruise from one charter base to another you will be able to move more away. Also one way cruise downwind gives you a longer range and is usually more comfortable than a windward beat. One way charters come with an additional fee, covering the way back of the yacht (skipper’s fee, fuel, etc), unless it is proposed in advance as 'transfer boat charter' between 2 charter bases.
