When you charter a yacht for a sailing vaction, there are various options you can choose from depending on your skills and requirements.
1) Bareboat Charter
If you have sailing experience and revel in the moment of being a skipper as you explore the islands, go for a bareboat charter. You make your own itinerary and go wherever you want to go around the islands. This, as you probably already know, makes the yacht your sole responsibility: No crew, no other help ( unless the wife and kids don't mind ).
2) Yacht Charter With Skipper And/Or Crew
On the other hand, if all you really want is just to enjoy your Yacht sailing holiday, then go for a yacht charter with skipper and/or crew. Depending on which yacht company you hire, the skipper can either be the owner of the yacht or another very skilled skipper. Most of the skippers are also very knowledgeable about the islands you will be exploring and often than not, they will be your very own valuable tourist guide.
If you have sailing experience but are still not confident with cruising by yourself or in foreign water, then a flotilla might just be for you. This way you can sail your own yacht but at the same time, you'll be traveling with a group of other yachts led by a head skipper who knows the islands and who will also be guiding you as you cruise the sea.
4) Yacht Cruise
If you wish to rent a cabin in a yacht but not the whole yacht, a yacht cruise fits the bill. You'll be sharing the yacht with other people. There is a set itinerary during these cruises. Rates usually also include meals.
