Bareboat Skipper Requirements

For a bareboat yacht charter, we ask that the nominated Skipper can safely and competently manoeuvre and sail the yacht during your holiday and then return to her home berth at Port Hamble Marina in the Solent. To give you a guide, our general requirement is that the Skipper has at least a day skipper practical qualification or has skippering/sailing experience on a yacht close to the size you are chartering and for longer bareboat charters further afield we ask that the Skipper is at least costal skipper standard.

However, if you don’t have any formal qualifications this doesn’t mean you cannot charter a yacht with us. Please contact us and we will discuss different options with you. sail@motioncharters.co.uk or 01489 588721
