Re: Is it possible to travel by (own) ship as a rule?
There are companies that will book you as a passenger on a working ship, just googled "cruising on freighters" and got several hits. Might fit your needs well, gives you time at sea as well as being on a schedule. Just a WAG, but I'm thinking that trip would maybe be two or three weeks on a freighter as opposed to several months on a sailboat.
Oh Yes, yes.....They are. I have done all the research. And these are the ships my father captained and I spent all my childhood in-bulk carriers and oil tankers(mainly bulk carriers or frieghters as you call them)
They usually charge around 4k(inclusive of everything-bed, food) and last anywhere from 20 days to a month. Very fascinating but there comes a time when one wants to take charge. I will do this once a blue moon though.
