What is a sailing boat and why should I charter one?

A sailing boat or sailboat is a vessel with one hull (monohull) that are primarily powered by the wind in the sails.
Larger sailing boats, over ten meters (33 feet) are called a sailing yachts, are also often equipped with an engine.
Having an engine makes moving the boat within a port easier.
It also allows you go to a new destination even if there is no wind blowing.

Sailing a large boat can be quite a challenge. We always recommend beginners to always book a skipper to sail the boat and to learn sailing from a professional on the go.
