When you are at sea, every member on the boat is responsible for something and has his own assignments. The whole crew must be coherent, well organized and fully equipped in order for sailing to be successful. When you charter a boat, you are also a crew member, not just a passive bystander. Whether you will rent bareboat, skippered or fully crewed yacht, depends on your experience but also on the type of yacht you want to rent. Mega yachts are always chartered fully crewed, while smaller yachts can be chartered bareboat or with skipper and/or hostess.
