Beneteau 57 Plan

This boat can be chartered bareboat, skippered by you our client with one of your party as first mate. Or you may wish to leave responsibility for the boat wih someone else by engaging a skipper and/or crew. We can arrange that for you too!

At Sail Connections we have access to a pool of contract skippers and crew, and we can chose individuals to suit the dynamics of your charter party. They will navigate you safely between places of interest, and provide excellent guide services along the way, introducing you to local customs, attractions and sites that you might otherwise miss out on experiencing.

If you have special recreational interests your crew will advise on where to go and how to get involved. Their local networks let them know what's happening in your destination, and importantly they have insider info on where to get the best fresh produce from land and sea!

Talk to us about including the price of skipper and/or crew with our quote. We can package your charter on a partially or fully crewed basis, with optional crew members such as hostess/cook and deckhand as well as skipper. We will also arrange full advance provisioning of the boat if required. Your contract is directly with the skipper through the charter operator. 

When enquiring about this boat, please ask us about a paid crew, and we can discuss all the benefits in more detail.

"The highlight of our Croatia charter was actually having a skipper who could make berthing arrangements at each place we visited. Toni was fantastic. He would also make restaurant recommendations and bookings as well. He took the stress of decision-making away which meant we had a much better experience at each island we visited. Everything flowed!"
