New sailboat models are longer, more spacious and more comfortable than older ones. This particularly goes for charter sailboats. These boats are completely equipped with all elements necessary for pleasant time at sea. Cabins, saloon, galley, bathrooms are all nicely furnished and spacious enough so you can spend longer time living there.
Most popular charter choices are longer models with more cabins so you can invite more people to join you. These models are also wider, more spacious and more stabile as well. Sailboats are not fast as motor yachts, so they are ideal for shorter cruises and island hopping, which is an attractive and favorite way of cruising Adriatic.
Sailboats will also give you a sense of pleasure and excitement of sailing because they require certain skills and effort, especially if you’re driven by wind instead of engine. This way you also spend less fuel which is more economical and eco-friendly.
Sailboats are an excellent choice for more experienced yachtsmen who consider the sailing to be more important than absolute comfort.
Although modern charter boats don’t require great skill, still you can’t charter one without a skipper if you don’t have enough experience. On the other hand, having a skipper on board is always a good thing. He can teach you a lot about navigation and it is always good to have a professional on board.
