How many people can fit on a sailboat?

One of the main aspects to consider when booking a sailing holiday is the number of people that will live on the boat. Let's highlight this simple but important thing: the more the people, the lower the price per person. The cost of a yacht charter varies depending on the number of people taking part; the more people who join, the lower the individual cost. The total cost is shown on our website. 

Here is a practical example: 

Model: Hanse 458 Sailboat

Destination: Lefkada, Greece

Dates: 05/08/23 - 12/08/23

Berths: 10 

Final cost without skipper: € 5,634

Cost p/p: € 563,40 (€80/day) 

The number of berths on a sailboat depends on its total length and the sailing licence, so if you're planning a holiday with more than 10 people, we suggest opting for boats that are 45ft or longer. 

Sailing holidays are a perfect way to share time and space with family and friends, to bond and collect unforgettable memories. Don't forget to consider that if you wish to hire a skipper, you should reserve one of the berths for him/her, and therefore count one less person in your crew.

Why rent a boat with skipper?  

A skipper is a figure in charge of the boat: we're talking about a professional that obtained one or more boat licenses, with over ten years of experience in the command and operation of a boat, and that is civilly and penally liable when in command of such boat. 

Piloting a boat is an amazing but exhausting task and choosing to have a skipper by your side can make a difference to the whole holiday. Here's why we always suggest renting a boat with skipper:

  1. Total relaxation: the presence of a skipper on board is useful even just to be supported by a professional figure during the navigation, and to be able to enjoy a more relaxed holiday without having to deal with technical matters. 
  2. Expecting the unexpected: A skipper is ready for any kind of eventuality, such as a difficult mooring, a negotiation at the port, or an unexpected storm, and can be of great support. 
  3. Travel suggestions: lThese professional figures are usually selected directly by the boat owner according to their experience in the area of your choice. They have great local knowledge and will be able to take you to coves, beaches, and corners of paradise that are less crowded by tourists so that you can have an exclusive experience. Way better than Google, right?

How much does it cost to rent a sailboat?

As it happens for hotel holidays, a sailing holiday cost varies according to different factors, such as the number of people, the presence of a skipper, the duration of the holiday, the period in which to sail, the boat's age and type, and more. 

Considering all of the above, the cost of a week can range between €350 to over €30,000, according to opt for more luxury yachts or include extra fees. That's a pretty big range that can include people from different economical backgrounds, meaning that the cost of a sailing trip can be within anyone's reach! 

On Sailogy, you can choose to filter down your search based on the aforementioned aspects and find your perfect boat in a metter of a click!

Rent a sailboat with skipper: how much is it?

The presence of a skipper on board affects the final price of your holiday. If no one on board has a valid sailing license, it is essential to employ a professional to captain the boat. Although some may possess the necessary qualifications, many prefer to rent a skipper to ensure they can get the most out of their vacation.

The average cost of a skipper is around €1,500. On Sailogy, you can check the correct price under the voice "Extras" that you will find on every boat's page. You will also find all the other additional services that can be included in your package, such as stand up paddle boards, pets fee, and more. 

Among these additional extras, there's also the possibility to hire a hostess, a professional figure that will deal with all the main daily duties, such as cooking, cleaning, organising, and more. If you want to completely relax and avoid any tasks, we strongly suggest to consider this option!
