Sail to Your Dream Vacation with Enaviga

Whether you’re dreaming of white sand beaches, fresh seafood, or crumbling coastal fortresses, you’ve come to the right place. Chartering a boat allows you to explore tried and true favorites alongside off-the-beaten-track destinations, with a dash of adventure thrown in.

If you’ve never chartered a yacht before, don’t worry. It’s not as complicated as TV shows might have you believe. In fact, narrowing it down to one destination (Greece? Croatia? France?) might be the hardest part. Once you’ve done that, it’s on to the fun part—selecting a boat. Here’s how to get started on Enaviga:

Select crewed or bareboat:

If you don’t know how to sail, you’re going to want to select a crewed boat. Often, a crewed boat just means you’re hiring a skipper (sailor, captain, or nautical guru) to operate the boat and serve as a bit of a tour guide. Sometimes, the price of the skipper is included in the weekly (or daily) rental fee or as a per-day add on. Depending on the size of the boat, you may also be able to hire additional staff to aid in your dream vacation.

If you’re a sailor, you can rent a bareboat and sail it yourself. Just be sure you have an internationally-recognized license, such as an ICC.

Decide on a boat type

We say “sailor,” but we offer more than sailboats. If you don’t have a preference, search through all of them. Here’s a quick cheat sheet on what each boat offers:

Motorboats are the dominant boat in traditional yachting, but they are often more expensive to operate. They tend to offer the most luxurious interiors and faster speeds.

Sailboats are increasingly popular yacht vacation options. Once thought of as the “adventurous” alternative for travelers who wanted a yacht experience at a lower price, these boats have evolved significantly. Now, the experience can range from adventurous to leisurely.
