Bareboat Rental

Bareboat Sailing Charters

Bring your personal gear and get out on the water! Just 30 miles south of the Jacksonville area, we have fabulous sailing on both the ICW and out the inlet for coastal cruising. A favorite destination from St. Augustine is Cumberland Island, Georgia – see . St. Mary’s, Savannah, Charleston – they all await you!

Our smaller boats are available for river day-sailing during daylight hours on our local waters. Note that the Hunter 216 has main and furled jib attached. The bareboater should be familiar with -and able to troubleshoot- a small outboard. The bareboater then returns the boat in a condition ready for the next skipper by flaking sails and stowing properly, cleaning off the boat, etc.
The Hunter 33, 36 or 49 can be booked by experienced sailors for muliple-day charters ~ simply call us for more info at 904-829-0648. Provisions and linens are not included with bareboat charter pricing. Offer subject to boats being available. 24-hour advance confirmation required.

Our licensed Captains are available for hire to familiarize you with local waters. The first time a sailor bareboats with us there is a mandatory Captain’s Checkout of at least one hour at $75 per hour. The Hunter 49 does require a two hour checkout at $150 by one of our Captains.

  • The Hunter 216s are not available for offshore rental – they are strictly for river sailing only.
  • Pets are not permitted on the boats… please make other arrangements.
  • The maximum number of passengers on the Hunter 216 is five including the skipper.
  • The maximum number of passengers on the Hunter 33, 36 or 49 is eight including the skipper.
  • Every passenger onboard must stop in the office and sign a waiver prior to the rental.
  • No self-tanning lotion on our boats, please! It will stain the white fiberglass orange and will be considered damage to the boat.
  • Everyone in the chartering group must wear non-marking soled shoes. The skipper will be expected to scrub all black streaks from his/her guests off the boat or incur an additional cleaning fee.
  • Please… do not attempt to rent a boat you cannot handle! As skipper you are responsible for the boat and every passenger onboard.

As the skipper of the boat you are renting, it is advisable to prepare in advance by checking the local weather, winds and tides, offshore forecast, and completing a Float Plan.
St. Augustine Sailing offers a wide variety of ASA sailing courses at our Sailing School, as well as captained charters, and memberships aboard new sailboats in our SailTime program. If formal course work is not necessary in your sailing plans, private Captain Coaching is available at an additional cost of $75 per hour. Our moderate climate allows us to sail all year long!
