BeneteauOceanis 45

Fast booking procedure through YachtCharter.com. Less information and slower response before the charter when asked for details. The boat: quite worn out (2012), not very well taken care of (rusting parts, teak deck dirty when wet, the boats seems to be cleaned negligently). The charter service is below average, only one person in the whole company speaking English (=difficult to reach because of being on the phone all the time). Technical service during the charter is outsourced with external company - no one really speaking English too). The area is beautiful but becoming really busy.

Yacht charter in Portugal

Portugal is one of the ideal locations for spending your vacations at in Europe. The two salient features which makes it become the leader in the list are, the Atlantic ocean which washes its coasts in the form of Iberian Peninsula and secondly the moderate temperature of the country. Due to the presence of a massive amount of coastal area the fluctuations in temperature are kept to a minimal and hence more and more tourists head towards Portugal as their travel destination. Yacht charter in Portugal is the best way of making your trip to Portugal more exciting. As there are plenty of marinas to anchor down in so that one can roam around the open waters of Atlantic and can enjoy the picturesque view of Portugal or can come near the coast and even get into a marina if there is a will to roam the streets of a certain city or country side.
 
Sailing yacht charter is the most preferred charter in the Portugal if your inclination is towards water sports.  Because of the perfect setting of this place, and the precisely right quantity of calm waves round the year, Portugal is considered very famous for the water sports. These sports might include surfing, snorkeling, diving, kite surfing etc. there are specialized instructors and schools as well so that one can get a quick crash course in case they are not familiar with water sports and hence they can enjoy them along their friends equally.

Most of the cities of Portugal have a coast. Which means they are mostly faced towards Atlantic? This fact has given rise to a lot of marinas. Catamaran charter in Portugal might come in handy in these scenarios because catamarans despite of their spacious interior are capable of maneuvering easily in and out of marinas. Catamaran are next to self sailing if the difficulty level of their sailing technique is measured, but if there is no sailing experience is there on the behalf of the guest then skippers are always there to take care of the job. Meanwhile, one can sit back, sip their favorite drink and enjoy the serene beauty of the roman and medieval architecture whose perfect blend is seen in the streets and architecture of Portugal.
 
While in Portugal and sailing in a yacht or catamaran which was chartered, there are certain places that are must to see. First of them is the Cabo Girao. This is essentially the highest cliff in Portugal which is overlooking Atlantic. The country side next to Cabo Girao is filled with dense green pasture and this perfect combination of mountain side, the ocean and the grassland gives this place a very fairyland touch. Second is the cove of Praia da Marinha. This is one of the most famous coves of Europe as it is washed by the turquoise clear waters of Atlantic and hence is also one of the calmest places on Earth to spend a night in. a catamaran yacht can easily be sailed up that cove and anchored there for a breathtaking view and calmness that cannot be experienced anywhere else.
