Bareboat, just as it sounds, refers to any boat that can be chartered without a skipper or crew. You will just be your own captain and crew!
To charter a yacht in Greece, there must be at least one certified skipper and one experienced, both over 18 years old. The skipper should be competent at handling a yacht in close quarters, anchoring and mooring in varying conditions and be able to use navigation and pilotage skills to plan the day’s sailing and know your position at any time. The Skipper should be accompanied by at least one crew member (First Mate) of “Competent Crew” with a levela similar/equivalent certification from any recognized sailing association.
As a yacht skipper, you are required to have a sailing licensea certificate from a recognized sailing association and/or an ICCIPC. The First Mate, if he has no license, must fill out a Declaration of Honor to provide a legal declaration to the Greek Port Authorities that said crew member is competent to crew aboard a chartered yacht.
