Chartered a Bavaria 44 for 2 weeks end August / early September. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had one small problem but it was resolved speedily with no fuss. The boat sailed beautifully and although we were just outside the main season we were still able to find a mixture of marinas with facilities and deserted bays on beautiful islands.
Non-Swedes need to research Swedish mooring practices before arrival - bow-to and rear anchors / rear buoys, pitons into shoreline rocks that I’ve not come across elsewhere. Not a problem but you need to be aware.
Beautiful Stockholm archipelago, with good winds, without high waves.
The boat was not newest but in very good condition. Clean aboard and all the equipment worked well. The staff in the marina are kind and professional.
Highly recommend this company and destinantion !!
We found and booked only a couple of days before and were delighted to find the local charter company had a Bavaria 35 for bareboat charter and at a rate that was the same as a decent hotel for the week! They were fab on check in at the marina, no issues at all once the boss realised we had some good sailing experience between us and so he felt comfortable for us to self brief on board until needing any specific answers, so weren't inundated with too much on arrival. We pulled away from the mooring only 1.5 hours after arriving. My only small gripe is that you have to pay extra for the cleaning at the end in cash at the beginning and we left the boat very well cared for, so didn't feel the 200 EUR was necessary, otherwise were very happy and would come again for sure.
The booking procedure with GlobeSailor was very easy and their staff were very switched on. I was amazed how clean and well provisioned the boat was. We had everything we needed for a fantastic week sailing around the Stockholm Archipelago. Per in particular was very helpful with answering queries before the charter week and when we arrived. I would strongly recommend booking this boat via GlobeSailor if you want a relaxing week's sailing in some beautiful surroundings.
