Yacht tourism abroad: where to start?
Yachting is a non-standard and fascinating kind of rest. Together with the company Globesailor, we will try to understand the subtleties and nuances of sailing trips, answer the most tricky questions and replenish the ranks of the conquerors of the water element.
Sailing is …
Every tourist goes on a trip with the sole purpose – to get a charge of emotions and impressions. Some spend their days and nights on the beach, others go up to the mountains, others go sightseeing.
What if you change the usual order of things? Break the foundations and rules, go explore the world as did the great Columbus?
Experience and skills
In order to make a cruise yourself, you do not need to be the captain of the Black Pearl, be able to play on the nerves of dolphins, force thoughts to start the engine or clean the deck to shine with just one glance. Enough to have a sense of humor and hire an experienced skipper.
Is a sailing cruise a privilege of oligarchs?
About 30 years ago, in order to swim on a new vessel, it was necessary to at least buy it, and also to become a millionaire and start a lap-dog with golden wool. Today such tourism is available even to a student.
At your service are double motor boats, houseboats for four, large catamarans and yachts. Renting a vessel on the Mediterranean Sea for 8-10 persons will cost 300-400 dollars per person (for one week), and cabin charter will cost even less. If we consider that the yacht combines several functions at once, the benefit becomes more than obvious.
Where are we going?
Anywhere. At the disposal of the tourist – the whole world: from the Masurian lakes to Madagascar. Such destinations as Montenegro, Croatia, Greece or Spain are perfect for family cruises. Brave – exotic. How do you get the idea to cross the Atlantic? Or swim in the Caribbean?
What are the cruises?
You can plow the sea in a group or alone. Each of these methods has its advantages.
Renting a yacht alone is a great option for families with children, a group of friends or colleagues. You yourself make the route and schedule, choose the ship and distribute responsibilities. And it is not necessary to be an experienced captain with a bunch of awards and regalia. You can even rent a yacht if you have never stood at the helm in your life.
An organized cruise is ideal if there is no time, too lazy or scary to sail yourself. In this case, you book a yacht, hire a skipper and sail as part of a team of 5-10 yachts. Plan, route and stops are not your headache.
What does a modern yacht look like?
Sailing vessel for 6-8 people accommodates:
Spacious cabins and sanitary facilities. “Home on Wheels” is only a thousand times better.
Cabins company – room for relaxation.
Large deck, where you can sunbathe or watch the fish.
Own kitchen equipped with all necessary.
Modern yachts are not inferior in terms of comfort to hotels, and some are superior. Where else will you dive into the waters of the Adriatic right from your room?
Yachts in Croatia
Fuel. A company that provides a yacht for rent may include a minimum margin in the price. On a cruise you pay the full amount of fuel.
Skipper, cook and hostess.
Parking in the marina. We’ll have to go to the port to replenish supplies of fuel or provisions. The cost is usually low and is calculated per hour of inactivity.
Final cleaning. As with the rental of private apartments, this is a voluntary-compulsory service. Final cleaning – cleaning the yacht after your stay.
Insurance. It should be marked “active sports”.
5 important tips when renting a yacht
Council number 1. Once found the very yacht, book.
You have chosen a new, beautiful yacht. Every day you wake up with the thought that dreams of a long journey will soon come true. One month before the trip you decide to book a “wonderful companion”. Visit the site, and the yacht is no longer there. Yes Yes. Such pretty often. A more persistent tourist can lead a yacht straight from under the nose.
Council number 2. Book on the website of a large company.
More than 1000 charter carriers around the world, a huge selection of yachts and catamarans, customer support and professional consultants are just some of the advantages of renting a boat in Globesailor. You will not be left in trouble if something happens to the yacht.
Council number 3. Carefully read the contract and leave a second copy of all the documents in their possession.
When a statement of acceptance of the vessel is drawn up, make sure that everything is correct: defects, scratches, abrasions must be entered. Do not forget that you will have to not only receive the yacht, but also pass it.
Council number 4. Make sure the credit card is valid and does not have a transaction limit.
All charter companies charge a rental deposit. Most often, this amount is 1,500 euros. To block a deposit you will need an international payment system credit card. Debit does not accept.
