The crewed yacht charters with Sailing Phuket include the services of a dedicated captain and chef/hostess as well as all catering. According to your own wishes, you can either choose to go for a relaxed sailing vacation onboard one of our yachts and never leaving the netting with a good book in your hand, or you can be as active as you like. You can, for example, sail the boat all by yourself, or take your family out kayaking and snorkelling or scuba diving. Our charter yachts are also equipped with all fishing equipment, so you can catch your own dinner.
Our experienced skippers are aware of all the great spots to visit and they know when it is the best time to arrive there. On a crewed yacht charter you will never need to worry about cooking, cleaning, or even the safety of the yacht itself.
On a bareboat charter with an Engineer/Guide, you will be the skipper of the sailing yacht! Nevertheless, you will have an engineer on board to make sure everything runs smoothly. His job is to help you with mechanical tasks like checking the oil, the water and all other running systems of the yacht. The engineer will also be able to fix problems on the spot.
Additionally, our engineer is also a renowned sailor who will be happy to act as your guide at sea and land. He will give tips about the best sailing grounds and the best anchorages. He knows where to go out to eat and where you see the most colourful corals while snorkelling.
Having an engineer aboard your bareboat charter is not only practical, it is mandatory. We do not hire our yachts out as full bareboat charter without crew. The main difference between crewed charter and bareboat charter is the price. The rates for bareboat charter are lower but you will have to take care of all the additional expenses. The expenses include the provisions including the ones for the engineer, the fuel for the yacht and dingy, water supply, marina fees and so on. Another thing you have to consider is that you have to prepare your own meals and look after the cabins and the cleaning of the yacht by yourself. A bareboat charter might be the better choice for you if you prefer to eat ashore frequently and you don’t need or want the excellent personal service and the comfort of a fully crewed charter.
We require proof of adequate sailing experience and appropriate qualifications to charter our yachts as bareboat with engineer. We always recommend a fully crewed charter as this is the best option to fully enjoy your holiday!

After you book the sailing yacht, get in touch with us as soon as possible and let us know your requirements and wishes early. If we have enough time to organize, almost anything is possible.
A word about catering: We will do our best to accommodate your personal dietary requirements. For example, we love vegetarian meals and they always delight everyone aboard, not only the vegetarians!
