Caribbean Sailing Vacations by Ed Hamilton

Choosing a


Caribbean Bareboat Charters
With no timetable, no crew, and an endless supply of beaches, coves and unique islands to visit, a powerboat or sailing bareboat charter represents the ultimate get away vacation.

There are many companies offering Caribbean bareboat yacht charters, but standards vary enormously and choosing the right boat and company makes all the difference.

There are many enticing bareboat charter sites on the web, but in reality it is virtually impossible to judge a boat's condition from a web site or a magazine ad. As an independent agency that works with all the Caribbean bareboat charter companies, we can tell you how they compare and describe each boat's current condition.

All companies have some boats that are better than others. We book more Caribbean bareboat charters than any broker and know from first hand feedback which companies produced satisfied customers.

Bareboat Charters

As part of our service, we send you an overview of ALL boats and companies in the cruising ground(s) you select, including prices, extra charges and specials, all presented in the same format. The package also contains company brochures and useful information on all aspects of chartering.

We then discuss which companies and boats best fit your requirements in your price range. We can give an independent opinion on the boat you are considering and describe its current condition from first hand experience.
