At the commencement of both skippered and bare boat charter each yacht receives a complementary ‘starter pack’ of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, tea towels and all cleaning materials. Equipment such as wet weather gear can be hired at minimal cost. Your yacht will be supplied with fully filled diesel and water tanks, gas cylinders and be fully cleaned. One bottle of gas is included. You return the yachts as found and clean down. Cleaning can be undertaken at a charge but you must remove all rubbish. You will, however, need to supply your own towels, pillows and bedding.

Anti – Covid19 Measures. The compulsory disinfection fee (Anti Covid 19 measures) applies to all charters during any periods of restrictions or advice by the Government and is carried out rigorously. If you wish us to clean down the ‘clean down’ fee applies.
Waterproof clothing will be separated from available stock for minimum of 72 hrs between use. No sleeping bags are available at the present time.

Bare Boat Charter Experience Level Required

Bare boat yacht charter is available for those who are familiar with yachts, hold a RYA Day Skipper qualification or equivalent standard with appropriate tidal experience having previously been skipper in tidal waters plus a VHF operators licence.  (You must prove / demonstrate  experience as skipper in tidal environments). You may more than likely be asked for your tidal mile experience / or preferably a ‘sailing CV’ along with other experience indicators such as previous charters, duration and their locations, size of yachts used, any yacht ownership plus the experience level of your First Mate.

We are then able to form an understanding of your overall experience and suitability to charter any particular vessel for any particular area / voyage. If you are in any doubt about your experience level, your tidal experience as skipper, lack of paper qualifications then please discuss with us or drop us your sailing CV and we can then have a chat / take a view or ask our insurers to approve – your previous experience counts for a lot!

If you feel that your experience may be a bit short please see our page on Skippered charter here: Charter with Skipper: See this page
For any racing charter we require your racing CV to be approved by the vessels insurers prior to acceptance.
