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.
Transport from Stockholm is very simple. We were met by the charterr company staff at their marina office and were installed on board after a boat briefing within a short time.
The recommended routes were useful - though we didn't follow them - and the documentation, charts and equipment all of a high standard.
Our Bavaris 50 was well equipped to the same standard as a UK boat and in very good condition.
The navigation and pilotage are quite challenging in the Stockholm Archipelago but well worth the effort to find secluded wild anchorages.
The only thing we missed was a larger scale overview chart to plan our routes through the maze of thousands of islands.
Navionics is almost essential for some of the narrower passages.
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 !!
Easy to book, regular contact before our charter. Yacht as described and we were satisfied with condition and cleanliness. Support from base was good, able to contact easily.
Would use the company again. Had a fab holiday.
Marinas and harbours accommodating, prices c£30pn with facilities. Sea flat but good breezes. No tides but watch out for ferries.
