We are two couples interested in chartering a skipper-only catamaran
for a week in either the Abacos, Exumas
, or BVIs. We are envisioning the trip as a "tour" of various beach bars and seafood shacks, and therefore would be interested in having only a few meals
onboard the boat (maybe 2 dinners and 2 lunches during the course of a week). Is that doable on a skippered charter
? If so, does the skipper
cook and/or provision the boat, or would that be our responsibility? The best cook among us would have trouble with anything beyond cold cuts, so this is a real concern!
If we would be in charge of the handful of meals
, is it customary and/or polite to prep those meals for the skipper
If the above is not really doable and the only alternative is a crewed charter
, are such charters generally flexible with respect to meals? Mostly I'm seeing crewed charters for which the rate includes all or nearly all meals onboard the boat, which is a deal-breaker for us. Any guidance as to what the "norms" are with respect to meals on skippered/crewed boats would be very much appreciated!
