Why a Bareboat Charter over a Nice Caribbean Hotel or Resort?
The first thing to remember is that vacation becomes "vacation." What is the difference? For most people, a vacation usually involves a hotel, exotic meals at the hotel or nearby haunts, bellhops, a reasonable size room (and bathroom), endless hot water, housekeeping, concierge, casinos, meal plans, spas, etc. Chartering is not that. Chartering is a "vacation."
Why the quotes? Well, it's not the same thing as what most people call a vacation. If you do not want adventure, don't charter.
In other words, if you complain endlessly about service and the temperature of your steak, don't charter. If adapting to something new is a chore rather than a joy, book that hotel. Adventure and fun go hand in hand on a charter vacation. If you can't use these two words in the same sentence you may end up divorced or, if you're single, bald. You see, charting is work, but it does not have to be daunting or difficult. Once you have completed your first charter you WILL be a changed person. The vacation norm will be turned on its ear.
Solidifying your status as either an up and coming salty dog, or a land loving hotel go'er? More times than not the salt and sea air will seduce even the most land locked people. Then let us mention the freedom, value, comfort, and pride that comes along with it. Yes... value. Not a typo. If you haven't stopped reading by now, you just may have what it takes to make your next vacation a Bareboat Charter "vacation."
