What is good to know for your next Boat Rental?

 

Can I charter if I do not have a Skipper License?

You do not have to do without a yacht charter holiday, if you do not have a skipper license. Many charter companies offer the possibility to hire a skipper. The skipper is the responsible captain who manoeuvres the chartered boat. It might be also recommendable to engage a skipper for the first days on the water, if you have little experience in seamanship. In this way you are able to deepen your knowledge under the guidance and do not have to bear the responsibility alone. To spend a carefree holiday on a charter boat, you should consider getting a skipper insurance. You can insure the charter deposit amount or liability risks for the chartered yacht and the passengers.

 

What is the difference between a Monohull and a Catamaran?

Whether a monohull sailboat or a catamaran is the right choice for your charter holiday depends on many factors. Of course, your preferences and requirements are also important for your planned holiday on the water. The desired yacht charter can also be decisive when selecting the right yacht type. Read more about catamarans and their caracteristics.

 

Should I hire a Sailingboat or a Motoryacht?

You are not really into sailing and prefer to hire a motor yacht? You are on the right page! With our YachtFinder you can charter motor boats from 5 to 30 meters lenght, as bareboat or as a luxury crewed yacht. The most popular motor boat charter areas in the Mediterranean are Croatia, Greece, Italy or Mallorca. The German lake areas of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and channels around Berlin are interesting for motorboat renting. These destinations is also perfectly suited for a holiday on a houseboat.

 

What is a Day-Charter?

In some boat rental destinations, like the Mediterranean Sea, it is very popular to hire a boat for only few hours or one day. Such so called "Day-Charters" are not always online available. You should contact us in any case, so we can find the right boat. We will quote our boat rental partner companies to get you the best deals. You do not have the required license for steering the desired boat? Not a problem! The local providers can provide a skipper for your charter.

 

Should you go for a brand-new charter yacht?

Generally speaking, charter clients prefer new yachts. This is understandable because everybody is exited to sail on a boat that appears in the newest style and has the latest gadgets on-board. Furthermore, a less used charter boat is likely to be in a better condition than a boat that has been rented out for years already. But you should be also aware that chartering a brand-new boat can involve some risks:
  1. Many yacht boat owner finance their boats. If in the last minute something goes wrong with the financing, the boat might never be delivered.
  2. The yacht might simply not get ready by the shipyard on time, because of production delays.
  3. On the transfer from the shipyard to the charter port, an accident could occur that damages the boat heavily.
  4. The required charter license cannot be obtained until the charter season starts.
  5. Brand-new yachts occasionally arrive with some children diseases, which had slipped through the boat builders quality control, finally come up during the first charter weeks.
All these reasons show that chartering a boat that has one or two charter seasons successfully passed, is often a more secure choice for the charter guest.

 

TOP 10 Tips to select the "right" charter boat

  1. Focus on your charter crew member's needs when selecting the boat type.
  2. Don't hunt the cheapest price! Set a decent budget and evaluate the "best deal" within.
  3. "Dream Yachts" are booked out early - do not rely on your Last Minute Luck.
  4. If your budget is tight, check older yachts having good customer ratings.
  5. If you want a relaxed cruise, just consider to hire a local skipper.
  6. A boat is best known by its latest sailors. Read their reviews.
  7. Only rely on quality certifications that have their requirements clearly published.
  8. The more experienced you and your crew members are, the less important special equippment is.
  9. If you are lazy or new to sailing, take it easy and chose a roller-reef main sail.
