If you are interested in learning how to sail, many captains will allow you to take the wheel of your charter yacht and give you the basic pointers of sailing a boat. Some of our clients have found it useful to take the ASA 101 basic sailing on-line course that you can take at home prior to your charter. This does not really qualify you to sail a boat but at least you’ll know the basic nautical terms and the principles of sailing.

You can also use the ship’s dinghy to explore the coastline and the beaches and restaurants along the way. Caribbean restaurants tend to be a bit pricey and with rare exceptions, all the main ingredients are imported from the United States. Mediterranean restaurants tend to be a bit pricey too, but at least the food will be fresh.

Special Event Services

Whether it be a top management strategic planning meeting, a rewards and incentives cruise for distributors or suppliers, or an internal recognition award for excellent service, boutique whole-boat cruises, yacht charters and yachts for special events on the water take their rightful place among the available options.

Some corporations use sailing yachts and “bareboat sailing” as a great option for classic  Team Building exercises.
