Bareboat Charter - Ballpark

Hi,

I was looking to charter a 36'+ bareboat for a 3 month trip through the Caribbean, but have many questions as I'm still in the preliminary stages of figuring out if what I want to do is possible.

Basically my fiance and myself wish to save the money to take a trip around the Caribbean. We wish to sail and dive, so I assume we'll need a boat big enough to handle us, a compressor and our dive gear, not to mention everything else.

I've checked a few bareboat charters and they all offer really new boats for a lot more than I wish to spend ($3-$4k/week) so I thought to post here to see if there are any older boats, maybe through private owners, that might be better.

I'm looking to get a ballpark at this point to see if this plan is even feasible.

Thanks,
