Crewed yacht charters may be aboard power or sailboats of almost any size (charter fees are proportionate). These tend to be more luxurious vacations on larger yachts, and are almost always more relaxing for the charterer, who may be able to participate in the handling of the yacht but without taking on responsibility. Usually, the charterer can set the itinerary with the counsel of the captain, although weather or safety may lead the captain to make a change in the plan.
For many, a crewed yacht charter vacation is the ultimate luxury. You live aboard a large yacht that is the envy of all who see it when you enter a harbour. It's managed by a skilled crew and not only that, your meals, drinks, linens, and more are provided for throughout your vacation.
Naturally, what makes a dream such as this into a reality is the working condition of the yacht and the chemistry of the crew as, except on very large yachts, you are still living in relatively close proximity. It pays to work with a knowledgeable and experienced charter broker, something we can help you with here at YachtWorldCharters.com, if you don't already have a relationship with a trusted charter broker.
