Bareboat Charter in the Maldives

A bareboat charter is a type of charter when you charter a yacht, boat, sailboat, motorboat, catamaran, etc. -and skipper it by yourself.

Bareboat chartering, just as it sounds, is for guests who want to captain a boat themselves (qualifications required.) Charter guests are responsible for all aspects of running the yacht, including sailing, navigating, anchoring, provisioning, cooking, cleaning, and, most importantly, having fun.

When bareboating you are fully responsible for yourself, your crew, and the boat.


Besides the sailing and navigational experience adequate to the boat size, in the Maldives, it is also mandatory for this type of charter to have the boat operator license and the VHF radio operator certificate, both issued by the authorized body in your country of origin.

Bareboat Charters in the Maldives is a unique experience since there aren’t many sailing catamarans available in the Maldives.

Blue Horizon Happens to be the only company in the Maldives at the moment offering bareboat Charters on Leopard 38.

Want your hands free to enjoy your holiday? Why not hire a skipper or a chef? Have your skipper do all the sailing or pitch in as much as you like. The choice is yours. For added luxury, hire a chef so you can sample the local cuisine. All you need to do is make sure skippers and chefs get their own cabin on your yacht.
