  What is a bareboat charter?
A bareboat charter is an arrangement for the hiring of a boat, whereby no crew or provisions are included as party of the agreement. Person who rent the boat is responsible for taking care of such things and might be required to certify that there is a person in the crew who has competency to skipper a yacht.
 
 
  Do I qualify to charter a bareboat?
You or skipper of your crew should be capable of managing a yacht in that cruising area. Wind and sailing conditions of that particular area, size of yacht might require different experience levels. Proof of competency requirements vary from country to country, some countries including Greece, Majorca, Turkey and Crotia insist on written proof while others simply require a signed sailing resume. Please be advised that all charter companies reserve the right to place a skipper on board at the expense of the client if they feel there is any question of safety.
