Yacht Charter Know How
By Pat Chaudoin

If desired, arrangements can be made for a captain to be on board for a few days or the entire trip. VIP also offers a Cruise & Learn program, with qualified staff teaching hands-on sailing skills.

For larger groups, consider chartering two or more yachts and traveling flotilla-style, as the Bonaseras did. Make sure one boat is large enough to accommodate everyone for meals, cocktail hours, etc. VIP supplies each yacht with an outboard-powered, rigid-bottom inflatable for quick jaunts between boats as well as easy docking at shore.

Power Yachts

All power yachts are outfitted with air conditioning, electric refrigerator/freezer, range/oven, microwave, hot water heater, TV/VCR, and stereo system, plus a bimini top and transom swim platform. Navigational equipment includes VHF radio, binoculars, depth sounder, knot meter, compass, and charts. Charter rates range from $4,340/wk (off-season) to $9,625/wk (high season).
