Crewed Yacht Charters. What’s The Deal?
An unforgettable sailing holiday.
Are you looking for an exciting holiday? With options to travel. A new vista each morning, and a different sunset each evening. A holiday that lets you explore.
How about a sailing holiday? Too expensive you may think. Well, let’s look and see what great value a sailing holiday can be!
There are many different types of sailing charter holidays – bareboat charters, skippered charters, but here at BlueFoot Travel we specialize in crewed yacht charters, where you can get amazing experiences for amazing value.
What you get on our crewed yacht charters
A crewed charter with BlueFoot Travel provides you with your hotel room, hotel facilities, transport and a new daily destination, all in one package.
You get amazing food and drink and two professionals who will look after your every need.
Your friendly crew will sail the boat for you if you don’t want to (which can be all of the time if you want to completely relax!). We will also provide informal sailing instruction if you want it.
We will do the cooking, show you the best snorkel spots, and introduce you to the best local bars when you want to go ashore.
Your hotel room comes with you as you sail from one stunning island to the next. And when you get there, you don’t have to worry about entry fees, paying to use the water toys or the cost of going ashore.
You simply sail there in style.
See for yourself how it compares
We have compared the cost of a 7-night resort based holiday in the windward islands with a 7-night crewed yacht charter on SY (Sailing Yacht) Nemo.
|What is included||Crewed Yacht Charter Costs (US$)||Resort Holiday Costs (US$)|
|Price per week in high season (Nov- Jun)||$2,360 pp (private ensuite cabin* single occupancy)||$1,750 ($250 a night for beach room single occupancy)|
|Breakfast, lunch, snacks, appetizers and 5 dinners||Included||$740 ($120 day per person)|

|Soft and alcoholic drinks||Included||$280 ($40 day per adult)|
*We also offer a shared cabin option, which is US$ 1,955
Use of water sports equipment or toys as we call them on SY Nemo is free of charge. So, you can enjoy unlimited snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle-boarding! Simply drop off the yacht into the stunning turquoise waters as soon as we anchor.

Attention all single travellers!
As a solo traveller, it can be a little frustrating to find great holiday experiences that are prepared with you in mind.
Room charges suddenly double when you select ‘1 person’ from the drop-down menu. Additional excursions are often marketed for couples or families. And there is nothing like walking into a hotel restaurant and asking for a table for ‘one’ with your Kindle in hand. We’ve both been there!
So, how about a crewed cabin sailing charter?
You can book your very own private cabin on the yacht or we also have a shared cabin option. As you can see all your excursions are included. And sundowners and dinners are always with other guests and under the stars. You also don’t need any sailing experience to join us in paradise!
