A Caribbean Sailboat Charter is an outstanding Vacation. With warmth almost year-round, the Caribbean is an ideal vacation destination with something for everyone. Relax. You will have a crew on a charter sailboat. Sometimes the crew is two persons: a Captain and a Chef/Steward. And other times, you could have three or more crew members depending on the yacht’s size, which can mean higher service levels.
Just climb aboard and set sail; no need to worry about finding your way around or running out of food or drink. Family Fun, kids love sailing because it’s not just a boring old boat ride. They can do all sorts of things, like watch the captain steer, explore onboard, swim off the side if they feel brave, or you can even attend cooking classes while onboard. All around, a Caribbean sailboat charter is a fantastic vacation.
There are two popular types of Sailboats for your Caribbean Sailboat Charter. One is a traditional sailboat; as you can imagine, this is formally referred to as a “Monohull.” Having 1 “mono” hull typically allows the vessel to sail faster overall; however, it does lean over “sometimes fairly dramatically.” It is exciting to feel the wind on your face while marveling at how the boat moves.
On the one hand, this makes for a more authentic and traditional sailing experience; however, it can be a bit cumbersome. The second and more popular sailing boat to charter in the Caribbean is a “Catamaran.” Unlike the more traditional sailboats, a catamaran has two hulls and is a bit wider. Due to the catamaran’s design, they are typically more spacious and much more stable when sailing. It’s almost inevitable that you’ll feel like you’re on a floating condo.
Sail to a new destination every day as one destination blends with another. All in an ever-changing landscape that promises a new exploration each time. You’ll be taking it all in knowing you are on a crewed yacht. There are so many excellent snorkeling spots that it’s simply too many to list here!
