First Charter


The purpose of this site - to help the newly made skipper to go on his first charter. Which country to choose for the first charter, how to choose a yacht charter company, how to plan your route - the answers to these and other questions can be found on this website.

The basis of this site is a map, where you can see the selected route, find nearby objects (waypoints). This can be a city, marina, restaurants, anchorages, etc. These points are added gradually by hand, so not all objects you can find here. To check the route and more accurate planning please use other sources, such as paper charts and pilot books.

Developing not finished yet.
