Move up the the next qualification but need to build miles.

Shared Bareboat Yacht Charter Details


We run these bareboat charters on our Bavaria 34 - 2 cabin cruiser meaning each of the 4 skippers on board gets their on bed ( 2 cabins/2 saloon berths).
Weekend charters run from Saturday 9am returning by 5pm on Sunday. Midweek charter run from Tuesday 9am to Thursday 5pm. A fixed price of £249 per person applies meaning the midweek charter offers even better value for money.

SBT instructors will be on hand at the start of the charter to advise on planning, but it a group decision as to where you go limited from Poole in the west to Portsmouth in the east.

We must have 3 skippers on board for the event to run. If the event does not run you can move date or receive a full refund. 

Shared Bareboat Yacht Charter Damages Deposit & Details


With all type of bareboat charter we must hold a £1000 damages deposit. This will be split equally between all skippers on the yacht with all skippers equally held responsible for any damages that occur.

For example : If a £40 fender is lost, all 4 skippers will receive £240 of their £250 deposit back. The deposit is paid by card at our reception on the day of the charter.
All skippers must also have photo ID to satisfy our insurance. This can by an RYA photo qualification, driving license or passport.
