Since you have told us that you have never tried bareboating before, here is what we have commonly found that people do to decide on a bareboating holiday:

1. Decide that bare boating is a holiday that they would like to experience.
See above list of activities for you to choose from. See what sort of holiday you can experience using our exclusive interactive planner or look at a sample itinerary.
2. When can you come?
When can people have time off from work and are school holidays part of the consideration? Do people prefer warmer or cooler weather? We have comprehensive weather history online.
3. Work out the likely group of people that will be coming.
Is it one couple, the family, a number of couples, a number of families? Once you know the number of people/couples you can start to narrow down to the right vessel.
4. Do you want to sail or motor? Do you prefer monohulls or catamarans?
We frequently find that people have clear choice on whether they want to the extra space and the stability of the catamaran or the "true sailing" experience of a monohull. See the whole fleet, or search for available vesselssearch our vessel availability for the best match.
