This is unique cruising experience and leisurely way to explore the Adriatic. With attentive crew members, you'll enjoy an unmatched level of service. The secret of an enjoyable crewed charter is essentially the crew, not only the yacht. It is entirely up to you to be just a relaxed luxury vacationer, or to participate in the sailing, or to learn new skills from the crew.
Large sailing boats, luxury motor yachts or popular gulets are usually chartered with permanent crew. These boats are larger and usually more luxorious than bareboats. Larger cabins, comfortable salon, wide su decks are just part of the experience. The boat itself is better equipped for your leisure activities – tender for water skiing, kayaks, snorkelling equipment, windsurfs are just some of the toys that are at your disposal all the time.
However, it is not just the boat that makes your holiday enjoyable – the crew plays significant role in that experience. They welcome you on board and take care of all your wishes during your vacation. The crew always has separate cabins what helps in creating the atmosphere of privacy but, on the other hand, are present all the time for any of your needs. The number of crew members depends on the size of the boat – always there is the captain of the yacht and the hostess, but on larger boats sailor, chef or even guard are at your disposal. Each crew member has their own duty – captain operates the boat and takes care of navigation issues, hostess is in charge to keep the yacht tidy, sailor assists the captain in navigation and takes care of minor maintenance of the boat while chefs duty is kitchen and provisioning. All of them are professionals with only one goal – to make your holiday the unforgettable escape from everyday life.
Considering the crew there is the small tip that is a rather usefull information especially if you are about to book your first crewed charter: gratuities for the crew is a custom that is expected in this type of charter. Gratuity amount is usually 10% - 15% of the charter cost and therefore when budgeting your holiday make sure that this cost is included in your calculation. At the end of your journey you will be aware why the crew deserved it!
