Where do the skipper and crew sleep?
It’s not unusual for the skipper to sleep in the salon area. However, every boat has a registered number of people that are allowed on board as well as a registered amount of berths. If the latter number does not include a berth in the salon, it is mandatory to arrange a cabin for the skipper.
We always recommend that when you charter a larger boat to provide the skipper with its own cabin.
This is beneficial for both the skipper and the guests in few ways.
– The skipper is well rested and up for his task of safely running the yacht.
– It ensures more privacy for everybody
– The salon is always available for everybody at any time.
