Bareboat Charter in Stockholm Sweden - recs

Hi all,

New here so please excuse if I put this in the wrong forum. My family and I are looking into a bareboat charter out of Stockholm this summer. I'm looking for any tips/advice others have. Looking to go in July for a week. Family of 6, probably looking for a 3 cabin vessel.

- Do you have a favorite company? A google search brings up a couple, looking for any good experiences.

- I've sailed almost exclusively in the Caribbean. Anything I should be aware of in the Stockholm archipelago? Anything that may catch me by surprise? I realize this is a general question, but any new territory has surprises.

- Any place we must stop? Favorite restaurants? Things to see/experience?

- Where do I order english charts for the area?

Thanks in advance!

Zach

Anyone been there? Maybe there aren't many bareboaters on this forum?

Please take me with you!
We were in Sweden two summers ago, but only sailed on Lake Malaren. While looking at the charts for the archipelago I saw many (X-1,000) cool places to stay over night. In July there will be so many boats out you might be able to walk across the water. And that might be you biggest charter problem, especially if your trip includes Mid Sommers Eve, which I wouldn't miss for the world.
English is spoken everywhere so start googling and enailing.

I own my own boat so not much experience with charter companies.
I sail mostly on the Swedish west coast and south coast of Norway.

But I will try.
Surprises:
-IALA A (Europe ++)/B (US ++)
-Long days/short nights (depending on how far north you live)

English charts? Not that much text on the chart, depths in meters.
Link to digital map on the web - good for planning but not navigation
Kartor, vägbeskrivningar, flygfoton, sjökort & mycket mer på eniro.se
Gästhamnar = Guest harbours
Naturhamnar = Natural harbours (anchorages)

You are allowed to go ashore almost everywhere (a long as you stay away away from private docks and gardens)

Some anchorages is so small/crowded that we have a stern anchor and tie on to the rocks, like this.


Or tying onto the rocks
