When you charter a boat for vacation from an owner or a charter company, the act is called bareboating or bareboat chartering. In bareboating, the person who rents the boat is responsible for the vessel and must have the skills and abilities to maneuver and handle the vessel. Most of the bareboats are of above 30 ft in size and up to 60 ft.

A bareboat master must have a certification from an approved organization along with sailing experience, depending on the place and the company. Most of these companies demand a sailing resume which details the master’s and sometimes the first mate's certifications, sailing experience including the vessels they handled which shows that you are capable of sailing a boat in a seaworthy manner and navigating through the cruising area.
