Each crew has their unique roles and responsibilities to perform on the vessel. Captain, skipper, chef, hostess, sailor, and security guards make up the team. There are different reasons why on your Croatian sailing holiday you would consider hiring a crewed charter.
Why Book a Crewed Yacht Charter
For your sailing holiday, there are several reasons to book a yacht with crews. The main reason is the vessel itself. The sailing boats are all made up of state-of-the-art gullets, catamarans, and manufacturers of sailing at Yachtco.
At Yachtco, our yachts range from yachts sailing very fast using traditional methods, to ships using more powerful engines. These are designed for comfort and speed to meet your specific needs and maximize your holiday experience; to ensure maximum security, these all use a modern computer navigation system. They feature high ceilings, a spacious galley and bar area, air-conditioned suite cabins with a comfortable bathroom, and a deck-wide, cushioned lounge seating for all on board.

See our crew on standby for more details.
Highest-ranking officer onboard a vessel. Like the boat’s different categories, there are several categories of captains; one thing for sure, a captain is the crew’s highest ranked officer, and that never changes. Keep in mind that if you rent a boat with a crew, the captain will have the final say on all matters concerning the ship.
A captain’s job is to drive the yacht, ensure that everything on board is running smoothly, and also manage all the paperwork needed. You should always negotiate the path with him, but if there is any risk or bad weather, you will, without doubt, follow the captain.
Each job on the boat is divided among the crew, but no manual labor is performed by the captain. The captain is navigating the yacht and advising on the route as well.
The captain given by Yachtco are licensed professionals who, depending on the vessel and sailing area rented in Croatia, have all the necessary licenses.
Sailor on a large yacht is the leading crew member. Because the captain is responsible for taking care of all the paperwork and also running the yacht, the sailor is the foreman who conducts manual labors such as cleaning the deck, holding the yacht in good condition, assisting with docking, refueling, etc.
In addition, the sailor carries out the commands of the captain and also helps in the yacht’s navigation. The sailor is responsible for the boat’s looks and also does the proper functioning of specific equipment. Thus ensuring the safety of the passengers and the yacht is the responsibility of all crew members, the sailor assumes a guard post if there are no guards on board. Therefore, should you find any difficulties on board or with the yacht, the sailor is the one you turn, although this is unlikely to happen.
The security guard is not always the main crew member, but on your request they are readily available. Since his duty is to ensure the safety of visitors, ships, and staff, the role of the security guard is quite obvious. This is most important when anchoring in islands or marinas where there are plenty of men, or when someone wants to reach the yacht out of curiosity and without any bad intentions. Although these cases are very rear, without the presence of a security guard, some clients and guests do not feel comfortable and secure.
While for most clients such fears are irrational, for wealthy individuals and celebrities, taking care of your properties and family is okay to have security. There’s very little chance of someone trespassing on your yacht because there’s a crew member on board at all times.
If you feel the need for a security guard on board so you can feel safe and secure, Yachtco offers Croatia’s yacht charter’s most excellent security.
A skipper is responsible for the yacht’s sailing. He also carries out other jobs such as making smaller sail repairs, repairing the boat and moving the vessel between charters from one marina to another, doing paper work in marinas, and so on when there are no other crew on board. He ensures guest health, offers other useful advice when sailing, and points out fun places to visit or things to do. He answers yacht questions and shows you some stuff to navigate a boat.
Skippers spend a lot of time on the boat and there’s always plenty to do on board. The skippers are highly professional and respect the privacy of the customer. Skippers at Yachtco will bring all the fun and make sure you enjoy a nice and happy sailing holiday in Croatia.
In the vessel, hostesses are primarily responsible for tidying and washing. We are also responsible for preparing the food if there is no chef on board. There are many works to be done on the yacht to make sure everything is in order and each job is properly distributed among the members of the crew. So the hostess ‘ role varies depending on whether she’s on board or alone with other crew members.
Yachtco offers a hostess who can be in charge of keeping the yacht smooth and dry, shopping and cooking grocery stores, and so on when you hire a hostess. The hostess and the skipper will take care of everything when there is a skipper on board to ensure that the guest has an enjoyable and unforgettable time on board. She is generally not liable for grocery shopping or any other physical work if she is part of the full team.
Our hostesses are highly educated about recent events and are well trained. To ensure that the guest has a pleasant sailing holiday in Croatia, they frequently interact with the guests to answer questions and explain things about local rules and traditions.
A cook’s work is very simple. He cooks the food and takes care of the food supply and drinks. It’s definitely a good meal that makes everyone feel better. The cooks are experts who are trained and are very good at their jobs. A lot of local and foreign dishes are prepared to make these guests have a full belly to have more fun. We cook the meals to suit the guests demands.
The cooks are friendly, in order to avoid any health risks, you should consult with them about the meals you want and the things you don’t like or are allergic to.
The cook is responsible for providing the requisite supplies of food and groceries to the yacht. You may also want to employ a chef as a guest chartering a big yacht. Without your permission, no food will be purchased on board. In order to ensure that visitors have a wonderful experience on board our yachts, Yachtco also positions top professional cooks.
