Crewed Charter Yachts are always in top maintenance and fitted with the top accessories and gear to make the cruise comfortable and safe. The crews are always made up of at least two people that handle the sail yacht, the captain and a hostess or a steward: the bigger is the yacht the more crew members it will has.
The captain not only acts as conductor but he is in charge of the cruise and service on board while a hostess manages the cleaning duties and the galley in order to have always the best service on board.
Rent a Crewed Charter Yacht means to spend a vacation in complete safety, with a technically well prepared staff that has confidence with the cruising area, its harbourage and dockings. During the cruise it will be possible to get some basic sailing skills and to participate to the simpler manoeuvrings.
