What is a Cabin Charter? (By-the-Cabin)

Sailing holidays can be expensive and this is where individual cabin hire is uniquely positioned.  Many charter companies, particularly in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, offer the chance to book a single cabin on a shared yacht to make more luxurious yacht charters accessible.  Share the experience with other like-minded travellers on a unique, once in a lifetime sailing getaway and make friends for life.  

What are the advantages to booking on a shared yacht?

By-The-Cabin charters on a yacht such as the sailing catamarans and yachts demonstrated below, really are quite the luxury experience and offer the ultimate, all-inclusive dream sailing package!  An otherwise very expensive yacht to charter outright, By-The-Cabin (or Cabin Charters) enable solo travellers, couples, pairs and smaller groups the opportunities to book private, spacious en-suite cabins on a shared yacht with other like-minded, paying guests.  This allows you to enjoy all the luxuries and amenities of sailing on a high performance, larger and more comfortable, impressive yacht that you would otherwise not have access to.  On top of all this, you’re vessel will already have a permanent, professional crew in place who care for an run the yacht throughout the season, ensuring she is properly maintained and kept in tip-top and perfect condition, ready for your arrival.  Essentially, you are enjoying the chance to live and breath the higher end of luxury yacht charter, maximum space, comfort and amenities, and an experienced Captain and restaurant quality Chef – truly a once in a lifetime vacation experience you thought you might never experience on a yacht – for a fraction of the cost of charter the yacht privately.  

Highlights; 

– All expenses included (diesel, full board provisioning, soft drinks, cocktails, wine, beer, towels and bedding, Captain and Chef)
– Adults only, no minors under the age of 18 allowed.  Typically, these trips attract couples and the occasional solo traveller.  
– Full board catering, dining and service.  Most often, guests are so impressed with the restaurant quality of dining and service they prefer to eat onboard!
– Professional, vetted Captain and Chef with in-depth local knowledge
– Carefully organised sailing tour and optional extras
– Private, spacious double-cabin and en-suite bathroom
– Usage of all onboard snorkelling and watersports equipment such as SUP’s, floaties and Kayaks
– Get involved in sailing as much as you like, or kick back and relax for the duration of your stay!
– All housekeeping, clearing service, bed-making and bathroom cleaning provided by the crew.  No need to lift a finger.
– Options to go ashore for activities and dining at select locations.
