Shared/per cabin charters?

Anyone have any good recommendations for boats that do per-cabin charters?

Unfortunately most of my friends are either broke, have no interest in boats, or refuse to fly. So a bareboat charter isn't really an option for me and I end up getting my tropical fix on Royal Caribbean instead. Back in 2004 I did a shared charter in the Bahamas that was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately they sold the boat and moved ashore the next year. I do have one friend who went with me on that trip and I might get her to do another, but right now I'm just planning a vacation for me only.

Thanks
Gail

Do a search on schooners. I sailed on Raindancer II a few yaers ago, had a great time. I think she's changed hands since then. I also sailed in Maine on Grace Bailey for a long weekend, another wonderful trip. Really nice fun people go on those trips.

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll check them out. I see there is a new incarnation of Windjammer Cruises out there too, sailing around the Grenadines. That might be an option. I did a day trip to the Grenadines a couple years ago when I was in Barbados for a week and loved it.

Thanks
Gail

If you aren't set on going to the Caribbean, look at the boats in the Maine Windjammer Association. Each one publishes a schedule and then you sign up for a cabin on a trip that you are interested in. My guess is that 75% of the people who are aboard are couples and the other 25% are single. If you like to meet other people, it is a great opportunity, everyone tends to be pretty outgoing. I say this based on being 1st mate aboard the American Eagle for 9 years.

Sharing a charter

Silverbranch,

My wife and I are planning on taking a trip down to Tortola next month, middle or late February. Maybe you would be interested in sharing a charter? Let us know.

Thanks,
Dave

The Moorings does this for their crewed (i.e., not bareboat) charters. Check with them.

I've done shared charters with unknowns before and it usually works out okay. I'm a licensed captain, so it's pretty easy for me to charter a boat. Actually did one in the BVI's last year.

If you are interested, drop me a PM. Maybe we can put one together. I would like to go down there this year, but have no current plans.
