The pricing per person depends on the type of yacht and the number of people aboard that boat. Participants will have to pay for their own airfare and hotel costs. Shared costs such as provisioning, docking and refueling are managed on each boat with a boat kitty. Usually between $250 and $300 per person per week will cover these costs. Other excursions after or before the flotilla are extra.
We try to mix and match crew members on the yachts according to their sailing experience, shared interests and personal chemistry.
One of the crew members will act as Captain of record for the charter yacht. To be the Captain one must have an International Certificate of Competency like the ASA Bareboat Charter Certification (ASA 104). An FCC recreational VHF radio license is also required but can be easily obtained through the FCC website.
The flotilla consists of several yachts crewed by participants. Most of the time we count between three and seven yachts, monohulls and catamarans, with fifteen to thirty crew members.
Each flotilla has a lead boat with the flotilla guides in charge. They know the area and where the must-see places are.
The basic idea of a flotilla is to make it easy for sailors and non-sailors to discover new cruising waters in a fun and affordable way.
The yachts are booked with a local charter company that maintains its fleet in excellent condition. The yachts will vary from 35' to 54' in size. Crew members can book by the cabin or, if a couple, family or friends want to sail together, we can book individual yachts as well.
