No great changes for 2015. As a general rule sailing resumes are sufficient to charter in Asia/Pacific although a license and previous chartering experience is helpful. In the Mediterranean requirements vary, a few operators require an ICC for Croatia but most do not. Greece and Turkey still require two licenses of some type (state based boating license acceptable) or a license and a resume.
We recommend that all charterers obtain travel insurance of some type. Credit Card insurance offers minimal coverage and we recommend comparing to a full policy with unlimited medical and cancellation benefits. We also offer policies that include rental vehicles insurance excess coverage for boats.
The number of options continue to grow with bond only, damage waiver only and a combination of both the main offerings. We have the experience to help you to decide on the best option to suit your party’s needs.
