ASA Certs

Jon,

Though some places may require an ASA cert, most major boat charter companies rely on your experience both length of boat and time frame for considering the type of vsl you may want to bareboat.

I personally have Basic Keel Boat (101), Basic Coastal Cruising (103), Bareboat (104), and Coastal Navigation (105). These are good as a foundation, but if the only sailing experience is limited to a 26 ft with outboard, a bareboat charter may be out of the question. Many companies smallest boat is a 35'. Best of luck to you!
