Latitude’s Comprehensive Charter Guide

Even if you own your own boat or sail regularly with friends, there are special occasions when you might want to use the services of one of the Greater Bay Area’s many professionally run charter boats.

Build by owner-skipper Josh Pryor, the 64-ft sloop Ruby has been chartering on the Bay longer than any other vessel. She takes up to 31 passengers.

Whether for a family reunion, an on-the-water office party, a nautical wedding or any other special function, there’s a vessel within the Bay’s fleet to fill the bill. Passenger capacities of crewed boats here range from 6 to 80, and all of them are run by U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captains.

In addition to the Bay’s large fleet of crewed vessels, there are roughly 200 sailboats that can be rented on a ‘bareboat’ basis for both daysails and overnights. You’ll find a complete listing on our site, and in the upcoming edition of Latitude 38, which will be on the streets April 1.

Renting a boat from a local sailing school or ‘club’ is a great way to entertain friends or family.

Speaking of which, if you have recently started up a charter operation that we might not know about, email us the details of your operation before the end of next week, and we’ll be happy to include you in our upcoming overview. See you out there.
