Bareboat Qualifications

Caribbean Magic Charters requires that the charterer acting as captain be experienced and competent to operate a vessel equivalent to the charter yacht. The individual must certify in the yacht charter agreement that he/she can navigate utilizing nautical charts, and has a practical knowledge of seamanship, boat handling and “Rules of the Road”. A charterer not meeting these qualifications will be required to have a USCG Licensed Captain as instructor on board ($300-$350/day) until such time as the instructor feels the charterer is capable of handling the yacht. Many charterers request a captain for instruction the first day, as they are moving to a larger vessel. We want your charter to be safe, stress-free and enjoyable!


Please call 443-277-6425 or e-mail caribbeanmagiccharters@gmail.com for availability of our C&C 44. We will hold a tentative reservation for 10 days pending the receipt of your deposit.

We want you to be comfortable and knowledgeable aboard our C&C 44 Caribbean Magic. Your orientation and sea trial will be conducted by Caribbean Magic Charters ' staff. All vessel systems, operations and equipment will be reviewed. The charterer serving as captain will take the vessel from its slip into the Bay for a qualifying test sail, then return and dock to demonstrate competency in boat handling and navigation. Our check-out captain will answer last minute questions, and then you may depart from the dock to enjoy your charter.

A refundable security deposit is collected to insure against losses or damages incurred during your charter. The amount is equal to the insurance deductible for the vessel. We will return your security deposit within 10 days of your charter less any charges for loss or damage.

Caribbean Magic Charters takes pride in presenting a clean, well maintained yacht. It is expected that the charterer will treat the yacht as his own and return it in the same condition. Any damaged or lost items should be reported to Caribbean Magic Charters immediately upon return.
