Trawler Charters

Trawler Charters

The trawler is an awesome boat.  It is known for its roominess and stability.  The next best thing to owning one would be to do a trawler charter.  It is a great way to sail along some of the wonderful coastlines on earth.  Trawler charters are available in the Pacific Northwest and in Florida.  You can also hire a trawler charter in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean or in Australia.

Trawler charters have several sizes to choose from.  The 43 foot trawler has all the amenities and power to suit most people's needs.  Your time aboard is guaranteed to be luxurious with a large main salon and full galley.  The flybridge is also large and welcoming and a great place to relax under the large bimini cover.

Three couples or a family would not feel crowded aboard the 43 foot trawler.  With tree staterooms and two full heads with showers everyone would enjoy their own space.  Among the places for sunbathing is the aft deck.  For swimming and snorkeling there is a large transom door that opens to a swim platform.

With the dark wood of the interior walls and cabinets, down to the well maintained wood flooring, the trawler oozes with charm.  Trawler charters are fun and exciting and like no other vacation you have been on before.  Coordinating and booking flights to and from the trawler's location would be the hardest part of the trip.  For a little extra, some charter companies will even do that for you making sure everything falls perfectly into place.

If you are an experienced sailor you may want to do a bareboat charter.  You would be able to pilot the trawler yourself.  The chartering company would have to review your sailing resume.  If you qualify this is a great way to save.

Most of us go on vacation to kick back and relax.  All trawler charters have experienced captains whose resumes are impeccable and available for you to review.  They know the vessel well as well as all the locations you will be visiting.  Leave all the worries to them while you enjoy the view.

The captain assumes responsibility for the trawler and getting you to your locations safely.  The captain is quite knowledgeable of the area he will be navigating and can inform you of the many sights to see and activities to do.  He can let you know what restaurants are good at the various ports of call.

The San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest are varied and beautiful.  You will be able to see an abundance of wildlife such as bear, whales, and eagles.  If you like, you will be able to fish for salmon and halibut, go crabbing, and gather oysters.

If you do not want to go ashore and dine at one of the many restaurants, you can use the fully equipped galley.  You also have the choice of leaving your comfortable stateroom and stay ashore one evening at one of the charming island hotels, at your own expense, of course.

Trawler charter prices would normally include: your fully equipped diesel trawler yacht; with linens and towels; a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain; a fully equipped galley; boat fuel; and dock fees. Meals ashore and taxes are extra. You have full use of the galley while aboard. You may bring your own food and beverages aboard for the cruise.
