Bareboat Charters

For experienced and licensed sailors (for some locations), there’s nothing like taking the helm of a luxury yacht and charting your own course. A bareboat charter is designed for those who want complete freedom, privacy and independence. Not only do you have full control of the yacht, but you also have the full responsibility for operating the boat, which includes sailing, safety, anchoring, cooking, provisioning and planning the itineraries.

Skippered Charters

Some charter clients don’t want the responsibility of navigating and piloting a yacht while on holiday. Others aren’t quite comfortable with taking the helm of a chartered boat on their own in unfamiliar waters. We can provide a licensed skipper for your entire charter. Or, if you prefer, your skipper can cover the helm only until you have familiarized yourself with the yacht and local conditions well enough to take full command.

Luxury Crewed Charters

Crewed charters provide an even greater level of service for those who want fewer responsibilities for the day-to-day operations aboard ship but also want the privacy, convenience and flexibility to custom-design their own sailing holiday.


The charter company will provide an experienced captain and full crew to pamper you and your guests with incredible food and beverages as well as discreet yet attentive service.  All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

By The Cabin Charters

Booking a cabin with a private bathroom on a by-the-cabin charter is perfect for new sailors or nonsailors who want to explore exotic destinations. It’s also ideal for experienced sailors who want to relax and leave the sailing to a captain who is familiar with the local area. By-the-cabin charters typically follow a fixed route with daily stops that allow you to visit some amazing sites, many accessible only
by sea.


By-the-cabin charters allow one or two travelers to enjoy spectacular holidays and the opportunity to meet fellow travelers. If you want a boat just for yourself or your own party, you have the option to rent an entire boat as a private charter with a route that you may choose.

These charters enable more experienced sailors to brush up on their skills and learn new techniques.

Canal Boats

Canal Boat cruses have been around for decades. There may not be any better way to explore wine country; heritage and history, cities and culture .


The boats are spacious, light and airy, with comfortable seating, heating and plenty of hot and cold water,  social get-together areas, both inside and on deck. The cabins have comfy beds with bed linen provided. Everything you need is right on board. There are also options available to choose both your land and water toys.


Cruising by Canal Boat is all about peace and tranquility. On board you can relax at and take in charge of what you do, where you go, and when. You can take in life at your own pace.

(no license is needed on self drive cruises)

Optional Extras

In addition to the standard equipment aboard your yacht, you can also rent additional equipment. The list of optional extras includes, but is not limited to, kayaks; windsurfing boards; paddleboards; snorkeling, diving and fishing equipment; and DVD players. Upon request, holiday packages can include initial provisions (food, cleaning supplies, beverages, etc.).

Your Proteus team rep will assist you in ensuring that your yacht is equipped to meet your specific needs.
