Hang in there - we're finding you a boat, won't take long!

In general this will be at the discretion of the boat owner, although some European countries do require an ICC certificate (equivalent to RYA Day Skipper) for boats over a certain size. An RYA Day Skipper certificate is usually a safe bet for most boats; or submit a sailing CV if you’ve done a lot of boating but never taken this out. Smaller boats will need less experience, but boat owners will usually like to know that you’ve at least handled a boat before.

If in doubt ask the boat owner, and there’s always the option of booking a skipper for the trip. This has its own benefits and will allow you to kick back with your family and friends; relax into the sail whilst someone else gets you from A to B. Hosts are also available for meal provisioning, and full crews for larger boats. See the optional extras on each individual boat listing for what’s available.

We say that 6-8 weeks a year is as much as is realistic to expect on average. There’s more chance of getting to nearer the top end of this with favourable reviews on the site and positive customer feedback. Just choose the dates you want to use your boat for, then leave it to us to fill it on the other weeks.

Generally we advise that it will not be possible to make any significant profit, but chartering your boat out will likely cover annual running costs of the boat, including mooring fees, insurance and maintenance costs.

Borrow a Boat In Maldives

The Maldivian islands are the tops of submerged mountains and are the lowest nation on earth at just 1-3m above sea level. They lie on ancient sea routes in the Indian Ocean and offer calm and safe deep anchorages. With over 1200 islands to explore from it can be tough deciding which powdery white sand beach is the best to visit but the Maldives aren’t just all about their beaches- Maldivians boast a rich and diverse cultural heritage, citing South and Southeast Asian, Arabian and African influences which manifest in their food, music and traditional boats. Come and enjoy your very own little slice of heaven!

Wind conditions are determined by the two monsoons- the windier Southwest monsoon running during the summer months and the drier Northeast monsoon during the Winter months which has very little wind. The northern-most Maldives enjoy windier conditions with winds ranging from 9 to 15 knots.
