Motor & Sailing Yacht Charters
Captain Only Yacht Charters
...you cook, clean, provision, and sail - you´re involved!
What is a Captain Only Charter? You charter a crewed yacht with only the captain... no chef. So you assist the captain in sailing and pick up a few sailing techniques along the way, cook for everyone, and clean the galley as well as make your bed and clean the head. Your cost is typically 75% of a fully crewed yacht. Below are the crewed yachts that offer "Captain Only Charters". Please check the "rates and availability" link for rates. If a captain only rate is not listed give us a call, 800-565-5984 or 615-776-7924, and we will get the rates for you.
RATES ARE PLUS ALL EXPENSES AND MEALS FOR THE CAPTAIN UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED
