TYPES OF YACHTS

Sailboat or power yacht, moderate or ultra luxurious, there’s a perfect charter yacht for you.

Hinckley Crewed Charters arranges first-class charters on fully crewed charter yachts, both sail and power. Below is an introduction to some broad categories of charter yachts. We will be happy to discuss the advantages of each with you. Tell us your budget and what you would like to do on your yachting vacation. We will match your wishes to the perfect charter yacht.

Sailing Yachts
Nothing compares to skimming across the water under billowing white sails. You needn’t worry if you’ve never sailed before, as your professional crew takes care of all the details of handling the boat. All you need to do is enjoy the wonderful experience! Charter sailing yachts have large cockpits where you can lounge, read, chat with friends, and enjoy meals in the balmy air. An awning provides protection from the sun, while the foredeck is a great place for sunbathing. Belowdecks you will find an airy saloon and dining area as well as large guest cabins with private bathrooms. Crew cabins will be separate from guest accommodations.

Multihull Sailing Yachts
Catamarans offer the thrill of sailing combined with nearly the speed of a power yacht. They have exceptionally large deck areas and their dual hulls offer very private accommodations. Since they have very shallow drafts, they are able to anchor close to the beach. They are perfect as a swimming or diving platform for your family.

Power Yachts
Power yachts travel faster than sailboats, so it is possible to spend more time anchored and still get to all the ports you wish to visit. Because power yachts’ hulls tend to be beamier and less tapered, they have more spacious accommodations than do sailboats of comparable size.

Mega Yachts
These are the creme de la creme of the charter yacht world. With all the luxuries of a five-star resort, these stunning yachts offer palatial accommodations and discreet silver service. They may have Jacuzzis, fitness studios, saunas, and many other extras.

Classic Yachts
These graceful vessels get admiring looks wherever they go. Today many of the “classic” yachts are reproductions of well-known vintage yachts, but they may offer many of the comforts of newer yachts, including private heads and air conditioning. True classic yachts, built during the golden days, and restored to their original beauty, offer the memorable experience of cruising on a very special boat with an impressive pedigree.
