Bare Boat Yacht Charter - Cornwall

File 366We have a select number of boats available for bareboat charter from Falmouth and Plymouth.

Both ports offer you the chance to explore the beautiful coastlines and rivers of South Devon & Cornwall. They are also both excellent staging posts for longer passages to the Channel Islands, Northern France & the magical Isles of Scilly. We are on hand to offer advice before you set off. We provide you with up to date quality weather information so you can get your holiday off to a flying start.

We are also happy to pass on our local knowledge which may help with your passage planning or help you escape from the crowds, (as long as you don’t tell anyone else!!). All boats are fully MCA coded for commercial use. We also personally survey each boat to make sure it well-found, proven, well-kept and has a full inventory on board.

You will be assessed for suitability to charter upon application. Please do not be offended by this as we have to make sure our boats are going out in good hands! RYA qualifications, previous charter references, logbook & prior experience information are all used to determine suitability of customers.*

At Trysail we also understand that as a Skipper you have to start somewhere, so we do have a sea kindly 29ft yacht available to people with less experience. You will still be vetted but as long as you have a Day Skipper certificate (preferable gained with us) you should be able to charter her.*
