Caribbean Sailing Vacations by Ed Hamilton

Which charter style fits your requirements?



A Bareboat Charter

Sail the boat yourself. The principal charterer needs to have skippering experience on a yacht close to the size you are chartering.

A Skippered Bareboat

Still use a bareboat company but add a freelance skipper for all or part of the time. A good option for anyone eventually wanting to bareboat, but can be the same price as some fully crewed boats. No matching of client and skipper's interests.

A Private Yacht with a Full Crew

Yacht comes with at least a permanent captain and cook. Price includes all meals and often house wines and open bar. Meals prepared to your taste (to a very high standard). You choose the day's activities and the itinerary, on a day to day basis. Yachts tend to be larger and more luxurious. Matching your party to a suitable crew is an important part of our service. Remember to add in the cost of a tip for the crew.
(Take a look at the Crewed section of our site).
