Youíll want to start your week by stocking your boat with food and drink Ė your skipper will be able to advise you of the best place to shop. Itís customary to pay for your skipperís expenses for the week, including water taxis, meals and drinks.
When picking up the boat it will have a full tank of fuel. Much like car rental, you are required to return the boat with a full tank of fuel at the end of the charter. Average fuel costs for a week of sailing are between 100 - 175€, depending on the amount of sailing you do.
All ages are welcome onboard our yachts although practically it is recommended children are able to swim and additional considerations be taken into account such as moving around the yachts, moving booms and ropes, slippery surfaces, boarding and crossing from shore to the yacht. Risks are clearly visible and additional precautions should be taken with children onboard particularly for non-swimmers. For all children onboard we recommend you bring with you well fitted children life jackets and harness with tether system. Remember it is hot in July and August so wearing a life jacket may cause overheating and children to be uncomfortable. Inflatable life jackets with a tether maybe a more suitable option for children. We also recommend the use of nets which go around the yacht and we can organise this at the time of booking.
Mooring costs vary depending on where you're looking to travel. They range between 40€ to 80€ on average per night, depending on the location. Bigger cities often carry higher mooring costs. If you have a skipper, their knowledge of the local areas can help keep costs low, if not free on some occasions.
No, to reserve a yacht all you need to do is provide us with your contact detail and we will hold the boat for you for a short period of time while you decide. You will be notified of your reservation expiry date after you have made the reservation.
