Sleep Aboard

The Sleep Aboard option is a great way to customize your charter based around your travel schedule, while saving money. If you will arrive at your destination late in the afternoon, book a Sleep Aboard to stay on board your yacht at the marina that evening rather than paying for a full day of charter. This option allows you to settle into your new home on the water that evening, so you can get an early start the next day.

Contact your Vacation Planning Specialist to arrange a Sleep Aboard on your charter, or add it upon checkout if booking online.

Hire a Skipper, a Cook, or both

tmweb_21_1016_web-sail-content_charteroptions_3.jpg?t=1C4RsE&itok=mQnuDM0q&timestamp=1478792415

Find more time to enjoy your charter when you hire a Moorings Skipper and/or Cook.

Add a skipper* - A charter with the option of a Moorings Skipper is an excellent choice if you have never chartered before, want to book a yacht that's larger than you're comfortable handling, or simply want more time for rest and relaxation. With years of cruising experience and a wealth of local knowledge, our Skippers are the ideal guides to your cruising area.

Add a Cook* - Let us take all of the work out of cooking and serving the meals, including cleanup in the common areas and the galley, by hiring a local cook, leaving you even more time to spend with your family and friends sailing, snorkeling, or simply relaxing.

Visit our skippered yacht charters page to learn more about adding a skipper to your charter vacation.
