Also Available “Captained” Charters. A captained assist charter is perfect for those who may not be familiar with the area or have the desire to sail all the time. Are you tired of serving as the captain of the vessel 24/7. Or Perhaps its been a while since you’ve sailed or bareboated last. It would be nice to get back in the grove slowly! It’s also for those that may not be familiar with the Southern New England Coast, a yacht this size, local currents & tides or the best destinations to visit. You can sail and take the helm as much as you like, but when your tired or want to relax, read, etc you can just turn it over to your assistant. Wouldn't it be nice to have someone else be totally responsible for the yacht 24/7, so you can really unwind, relax and enjoy this trip with friends or family. Imagine no concerns while at anchor, while sleeping, or away from the yacht for extended periods! Imagine having assistance with everything from meals, cocktail hours, grilling, serving, cleaning, anchoring, docking, transportation and everything else. Someone that can help make your vacation better, more relaxing, enjoyable and FUN! Perhaps you would like to have the ability to have the yacht meet you and depart or return from alternate locations of your choosing that often can be arranged. Avoid the initial detailed yacht orientation or security deposit requirements, but always know that it's still your charter, you can make the plans and choose destinations, your captain is only there to assist as needed, requested or appropriate. The objective is to make your cruise as care free and fun as possible.
