We want you to have fun on your charter vacation but our number one priority is your safety. We need to know that you are capable of keeping your passengers and the yacht safe. We have stringent requirements that must be met before you and your party can take her out.
Before you start on your charter, you will need to complete a checkout to ensure that you can safely pilot Moon and Stars. You must provide a sailing resume and pass a docking test to qualify. Then at the start of your charter we will take the time to go through a detailed boat systems/operations review with you before you get underway. The Basic Bareboat Chartering Requirements section below contains the full details of the requirements and process to qualify for this charter option.
Available: May 1 - September 30
Minimum charter length: 5 days
Our goal is your safety. Moon and Stars is nearly 50' long, 25' wide, and has 2 systems on each hull for practically everything. She's beautiful but she's also a complex machine. We want to make sure that you're safe and fully capable of piloting a vessel that is bigger than some small homes.
To qualify for a Basic Bareboat charter, the person responsible for piloting the boat is asked to complete the following:
We'll review your resume and if that looks ok, we'll contact you to schedule a time for the driving and docking test.
If you pass the checkout test, the charter can move forward. If you cannot successfully pass the checkout, we suggest the Basic Bareboat Plus Captain option in order to charter the boat.
Moon and Stars cannot be chartered for single-handed operation. A minimum of two people еасh holding Washington State Boater Education Cards or equivalent is required for Basic Bareboat charters.
On the first day of your charter, before we hand you the keys, we'll set aside no less than 3-4 hours to walk through all the systems. There are a lot of systems and it will take a good bit of time to cover them and answer your questions.
