A crewed yacht offers a wide selection of amenities for guests’ use including a whole host of watertoys, snorkel gear, entertainment systems as well as books & games for those quieter moments. Full service is always on hand, whether you need a fresh towel, water-sports instruction or a delicious tropical fruit cocktail. No lines, no waiting, just a prompt friendly smile and whatever you could wish for. Your Captain will sail the yacht to all the beautiful and sometimes “secret” anchorages and makes sure your vacation is carefree. Your personal Gourmet Chef will create meals and snacks to your desires, your ocean view table is always the best in the house! An open bar means no hidden charges.
When you charter a bareboat, the size of your yacht is limited to the experience of the captain of your group. With a crewed yacht you can charter a yacht that’s larger than you’re comfortable handling, actually, you do not have to have any sailing experience at all. The crewed yachts are in general much larger than what is available in our bareboat fleet. You can charter the yacht of your dreams! Of course, the size of your crewed charter yacht depends on your budget, but you will enjoy the extra space and luxury you can find on the larger crewed yachts.
Charter yacht crews are trained to create flexible itineraries, island-hopping to the most amazing destinations and offering many activities, based on your specific preferences. Another advantage of choosing a crewed charter is the crew’s intimate knowledge of the area you are visiting. They will offer you the opportunity to discover under-explored “secret” areas and learn about local customs, which can easily become the highlight of your visits.
This is maybe the most important advantage of a crewed charter: the food! We often receive reviews from clients that were amazed the food could be so incredible onboard. All Breakfasts, lunches, 3 course dinners, snacks and drinks are included in your charter. But it does not stop there! The chefs on these yachts are culinary professionals and many have trained in the best culinary schools and could be working in the top restaurants around the world, but they have decided to live on the water instead and serve a select group of guests. The chefs are truly amazing, and you can expect gourmet meals, beautiful presented, coming out of their galleys. Chefs prepare meals precisely according to your preferences and dietary needs. Are you gluten-free vegetarian or vegan? No problem. Just let your chef know and he or she will create the most incredible meals you’ve ever eaten along with handpicked wines and desserts.
While you relax completely on your charter, the crew makes sure you get everything you need. You and your guests get to enjoy every meal or cocktail hour without having to worry about cooking, preparing drinks or cleaning up afterwards. The crew will arrange the provisioning before your charter and will make sure the yachts is spotlessly clean at all times during your charter. Whenever you need a drink, a towel, use of watersports or anything else, just ask and the crew will arrange it for you.
