Bareboat (Bare & Boat), as the compound term suggests, is a type of seafaring arrangement that calls upon chartering, hiring or employing the services of a yacht in which the vessel shall include neither crew nor provisions as part of the agreed-upon terms.
Essentially, when you opt for Bareboat Chartering during your BVI sailing vacation, you need to show you’ve been certified, be navigation savvy and feel at ease handling a boat without a crew or a captain aboard. In a word, Bareboat Chartering means exclusivity, total privacy, seafaring intimacy, and the kind of maritime independence preferred by an experienced sailor such as you. No crew or captain will be provided except upon request.
Always keep in mind that great ocean freedom comes with deep sea responsibility!
