Re: looking to rent a boat to cross the Atlantic

Perhaps some charter company moved boats from the Caribbean to the Med regularly and wouldn't mind chartering the boat to you as opposed to paying a delivery crew. But I've not heard of one.

Re: looking to rent a boat to cross the Atlantic

There is actually a company in France that offers exactly that: long term cross atlantic rentals.
See www.cruisingpartner.com. Most of the info on their site is in French however.

Hi Omar

Re: Looking To Rent A Boat To Cross The Atlantic

By the way, for those saying its the wrong season better pull a book out.

Cape Verde to Caribbean is fine then. Full trades, no problem. Probably the best topime to go, weather wise.

Gib is more problematic but once in the Canaries its all good.

The ARC leaves in Nov to get people to the Caribbean by Christmas, indeed its a bit too early.

Re: Looking To Rent A Boat To Cross The Atlantic

My thoughts exactly; the man wants to go east to west, so Dec/Feb's the perfect time to cross; I guess every yacht-club (and forum too) has its bar-stool experts who advise/condemn without ever doing themselves?


Whilst I think Omar's options in obtaining a bareboat charter might prove very limited, I'd personally be somewhat concerned about any yacht he that could charter. For myself, I'd be very concerned about heading out into the wide blue yonder on a boat I didn't know well, both with regards to sailing it and it's maintenance problems/history; I guess the delivery skippers do that all the time, but that's why they earn the big-bucks When we came across, we'd had our boat little more than a year and I know that I'd have been psychologically if not physically more 'comfortable' on our previous boat, which we'd been sailing for ten years.

Re: Looking To Rent A Boat To Cross The Atlantic

My boat is available. The fee: $100,000. The boat: 2001 Hunter 380. Ready and waiting for your bank check or cash. The boat is located in Ft Myers Beach, Florida. The charter will be open ended with no time limit. Upon return of the boat in sailing condition you will get a $25,000 cash return.

Re: Looking To Rent A Boat To Cross The Atlantic

I am wondering why you want to do this? If you are just looking for the experience there are often people looking for crew, especially experienced crew! Would have loved another skipper on board when I came across but I am on the Pacific leg now (anyone fancy Panama Hawaii, southern route, next summer?)

Re: Looking To Rent A Boat To Cross The Atlantic

Hello, Omer. You better look for delivery option. Some charter companies, or private, if doesn't want to sail may require delivery crew. Then, insetead of rental, you may even get paid for this job. But, you'll have to prove, that you are good enough to bring the boat safe... End,in western rout it usually starts November - December. My freinds are now 1/2 way Las Palmas - Trinidad,delivering Lagoon 45... And , moderator is right - you should follow crewing channel.

I know you said return the boat but...

Can you imagine the poor secretary's face at the charter shop when you call them to say, "So I'm done with the boat but I'm unable to return it... its on the other side of the pond if you want to pick it up..."
