What’s A Boat Charter?

Discover The Secret Language Of Sailing!

Sailing is a world of its own and the sailors that inhabitant it have their own colorful language. Out on the water, sailors greet each other in ancient Middle English “Ahoy!” You might hear directions to the “galley” (kitchen) and “head” (bathroom). Even common items are colorful expressions. A rope is a “line” and the end of the line tied to a bitt is the “bitter end.”

Want to be agreeable? Don’t say “Yes.” The proper response is “Aye” for the crew and “Aye, aye, sir” for the captain. If the crew shouts “Batten down the hatches!” then hang on tight, they’re closing the portholes for rough weather. But if the captain says “Get ‘em a clap of thunder!” then find your glass, he just ordered you a strong drink.

You can experience this unique world of sailing with a boat charter. If you’re wondering what you’re getting into when booking a “boat charter”, don’t worry. The term “charter” derives from the Latin term “charta”, a document granting specific rights and privileges from a sovereign power to an individual or state. The modern boat charter includes the rights and privileges to relax and enjoy sailing.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

― H. Jackson Brown Jr
