Please note this is one of the few bareboat charters available in the St. Michael's/Chesapeake Bay area. This is not intended to be a day charter or cocktail cruise charter. One week is the minimum charter for experienced mariners or with a captain.
Cruise the beautiful waters from Norfolk to Baltimore or Washington D.C. Charter our Grand Banks 49 Motor Yacht, Island Girl, for up to 6 people.
Located near Easton, Cambridge and St. Michaels. Lots of ways to enjoy your time on the water and shore. Make sure you check out the nooks and crannies of the rivers and bays that meander off the Bay; for example the Pokomoke or Trippe Creek or sample the famous crab cakes on Smith Island.
Rates as low as $6000 per week bareboat. 1 1/2 days/nights of free onboard familiarization and orientation. Longer charters are preferred and receive a discount.
Island Girl is essentially a three bedroom, three bath apartment with four AC units, full galley, salon and a deck (flybridge). She provides a solid stable platform, if slow, to totally immerse yourself in life on the water. Fuel is your responsibility but she sips at 8 knots/hour = 4/gals/hour. At 10 knots = 13/gals/hour. Going slow is the way to go!
Some folks just move from marina to marina and enjoy the Bay that way. For the experienced and confident captains spending nights on the hook are a wonderful way to unwind. Let the sun and the tides become your timepiece. Sit on the flybridge and watch sunsets and sunrises.
Qualifying for bareboat is part of the process, so please provide boating resume, licensure, etc. that would make you feel comfortable giving control of your 30-ton, twin engine vessel to someone you just met. If you are deemed skilled enough to handle Island Girl, you are off on your adventure. If not, you can hire a captain for a day or two of training or the entire trip, whatever makes us both feel comfortable.
If you have any questions, we can answer those through Boatsetter's messaging platform before you pay. Just send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
