Captain only charters are the perfect blend of bareboat and crewed charters. You make the plan, set the pace and itinerary, and the captain looks after the boat.

If you would like the experience and security of a qualified Captain, but are willing to do your own cooking (or dine ashore if you prefer), you can save of lot of money on your charter! All toys and amenities are included, so you experience the luxury and facilities of a crewed yacht without the expense of gourmet cuisine or the restriction of dining on board.

Extra costs on Captain only charters are provisions (food and drinks) for your group and the captain, fuel, water, ice, and local permits. Around $30 per person per day is a good estimate of how much you will spend on food, drink and ice. The catamaran will use about $120 worth of fuel a week. Local permits are about $5 per person per day total.

Charters are for 7 nights, and can start and end on any day convenient to you and the yacht's availability. Any yacht sleeping 6 or less can meet you in St. Thomas or Tortola, those which sleep 6 or more may only pick you up in the BVI's (US Coast Guard Regulations).
