Pittwater Bareboat Charters – Experience Needed

For our Pittwater bareboat charters we don’t require you to have any formal qualifications…

… but we do check that you have the required experience to skipper a bareboat yacht charter.

Has it been a while since your last charter?

Is your booked charter on a boat you’ve never sailed or skippered before?

Sometimes you might just need to brush up on your skills / technique and gain some confidence in the process. This is when our “Charter Confidence” add-on option might be worth considering!

For the first 4 hours of your charter, a SmartBoating instructor will join you on board. Our qualified instructor will run through various facets on the boat and refresh any areas on which you might be a bit rusty.

Please note, this option cannot be substituted for Sail School or formal Tuition. You must already know how to sail to be able to charter a boat from us.

This option must be pre-booked at the time of making your reservation.  Our “Charter Confidence” option costs $320 in addition to your charter costs.

For a little bit of pre-charter reading here’s some yachting tips you might find useful.

Alternatively you can book a skippered yacht charter.

Your Pittwater Bareboat Charter

One of our friendly team will welcome you and show you on board your yacht which will be immaculately presented and waiting for you on the marina.

A thorough briefing lasts approximately 45 minutes and takes you through the safe operation of your yacht.

During your briefing we take the approach that no question is a silly question – the more questions asked the better informed you will be!

We can make recommendations on where to go, where to moor, what to do and advise on expected weather conditions to maximise your enjoyment.
