Introduction to Bareboat Charter

May 2, 2008
Introduction

Bareboat charter is a bit like leasing a car. The bareboat charterer is sometimes called a "deponents owner" charter. By definition a bareboat charter is an arrangement for the hiring of a boat, whereby no crew or provisions are included as part of the agreement; instead, the people who rent the boat from the owner are responsible for taking care of such things. In a bareboat or demise charter, the owner gives possession of the ship to the charterer and the charterer hires its own master and crew.

Popularity

While both the international leisure travel industry, particularly outdoor activities based vacations, and the boating industry has both boomed in the last decade, so too has the bareboat charter industry which incorporates both of these pursuits. Bareboat hire has become increasingly common since the mid-1990s and in particular since the early 2000s.

Your Options

There are hundreds of bareboat yacht charter brokers or agent companies and boats. Try and find a vessel that has been purpose built for the task. There has been increasing demand for yacht vacations and many experienced and semi-experienced 'yachties' now consider it easier and cheaper to hire a bareboat, rather than own their own yacht. A bareboat will give you the freedom to cruise your own itinerary at your own pace, when sailing around in the worlds most beautiful and desired yacht charter cruising locations.

Where to Charter

The Caribbean or the Greek Islands, there are many great places you can bareboat. Australia with its Great Barrier Reef is a favorite area There is no better way to see the Whitsunday Island group than at the helm of a luxurious power cruiser, which are increasing in popularity and surprisingly affordable when the cost is shared across a group. The pristine beaches and marine life are worth the price on their own.

Wind or Combustion

Both forms have there pros and cons. In the space and comfort stakes the power cruiser is the standout but for the died in the wool sailor, sailing is preferred. Know your ability if you choose to sail as it is for the more adventurously-minded.

To Wrap Up

If you want to do something out of the box that you will never regret Bareboat charter is it. Probably most of your friends won't even know what the term means. Nothing stirs your core more than the serenity of the water as you control your own destiny of how long and where you want to be. If you go you will be back and you will bring your friends.
