Caribbean Sailing Vacations by Ed Hamilton
Caribbean Bareboat Charters

Why book your bareboat charter
through Ed Hamilton & Co

Standards vary enormously between bareboat companies.
Slick internet sites with boat layouts or glossy pictures taken when the boats were new are misleading. A less expensive boat is cheaper for a reason - never select a boat based purely on price.

1. We will have seen the boats you are considering
and can give an objective description of their current condition and how each compares. While most companies are reputable, each one is naturally trying to sell you their product and their services.

2. We book more Caribbean charters than any other broker
so we know how each company is performing, from literally hundreds of current charter comments. Waiting days for a company to fix your boat is not a bargain.

3. Since 1972 our staff have been involved in every aspect of the charter industry,
from running major Caribbean bareboat companies, designing and selling charter yachts, to teaching sailing, skippering charters and running stateside booking offices.

4. Greatly increased security.
From choosing the right boat and safeguarding your money, to helping you receive fair compensation from a mechanical breakdown, you have more security booking through us than you would as an individual.

Travel discounts
Because of our volume, we can often get those 'hard to get' dates when boats and flights are technically sold out. In many cases we can package the flight with the boat and further reduce your cost.

We simplify every stage of the booking process yet you pay no more than booking direct
Our unbiased, independent advice and 32 years of charter experience can make all the difference to your vacation

You may already know which company you prefer, either from a friend's experience or even a past charter. Our comments may well confirm your decision, but by booking through us you get an up to date, independent opinion of the companies' fleets (even the best companies have some boats that are better than others), plus extra security, free literature (including a cruising guide), the ability to pay for your charter with a credit card and all our other services.

We provide security, guidance, experience and convenience,
all for the same price as booking direct.
