A Guide to Yacht charters
Greece is one of the leading yachting destinations of the world. Yacht charter Greece has several companies offering different type of packages which includes exploring islands, water sports, history, cuisine and timeless coastal towns. The travelers thus have a variety to chose and plan their holiday. There are countless islands waiting to be explored and each one of them has its own unique history and beauty. Yacht chartering is a practice whereby one rents a sailboat or a motor yacht for the purpose of visiting an island or coastal destination. Renting of yachts is mostly done as a part of a vacation activity. There are two basic types of charters: bareboat charters and crewed charters.
The bareboat charter is basically where an individual is renting a boat and captaining it himself. However there are various companies providing the basics of handling the boat singlehandedly. They also provide options for a skippered charter where they offer a skipper along with the yacht. These can be sailing boats, monohulls or catamarans which are spacious, manageable and well equipped to perform according to the demands of the sailors. Assisted bareboat chartering option is also available which provides a lead boat to give prop if required but there is no obligation to be part of any social event or itinerary.
The crewed charters as the name suggests comes along with a crew and is available for large and small private groups. This type of yacht can be a two-member crew or a big one with many crew members handling different jobs.
Apart from this there are also some sub-types like six-pack charter or uninspected charters which allow six or less passengers on board. The six pack yachts can serve as sailing, fishing or power yachts. A six-pack charter gives an option to choose between the types of voyage one wants to take. The other sub-type is the inspected charters which are capable of carrying several hundred passengers. These charter vessels are designed to provide services like catering and live music for the entertainment of the passengers. The different features like its capacity, services offered and past history are the determining factors in the cost of using the yachts in Greece.
