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 Greece

Fancy sailing the Greek Islands or exploring all that Greece has to offer with a boat charter? As the land of figs and honey, Greece is one of the most popular cruising regions in the Mediterranean. And for good reason! With ~6,000 islands and islets (~200 of them inhabited) to explore, the variety of the archipelagos is second to none.

From the larger Ionian islands in the West with their verdant landscapes, to the picturesque ports and sandy beaches of the Sporades, the wind conditions can be as diverse as the islands themselves. Generally, the Ionian enjoy the lightest winds whilst the Cyclades experience the “meltimi”- a wind that averages force 6 and above in summer and strong enough to blow tables over- an exhilarating adventure for the very experienced sailor!

The Cyclades boast over 200 islands and may be divided into the Greater and Lesser Cyclades groups. They have the archetypal white cuboid architecture with blue domed roofs found in ubiquitous tourist brochures. The Dodecanese also experience strong winds, but being in close proximity to Turkey, enjoy a longer sunny season and look more barren as a result. However they are picturesque in their own right and boast a wealth of ancient ruins to explore.

The Saronic islands are closely accessible to Athens and are therefore popular with tourists and locals alike. Lighter winds there make them perfect for families although there is still chance of a blow in mid summer!

Crete is a standout island of its own, worth dedicating at least a week or two to explore its rich Minoan culture and museums as well as beautiful ports and beaches.
