Your total budget for a boating trip in Illinois depends on many factors such as: trip duration, if captain and crew are included in the price or their cost have to be paid separately, fuel cost (which could be significantly higher on a motorboat compared to a sailboat) and other extras you choose to customize your experience in Illinois.
Do I need a licence to rent a yacht on Sailo?
No, you do not need a license to rent a boat on Sailo as long as you are renting a boat with a captain included. There are two types of boat rentals and yacht charters available on our website: bareboat and captained charters. If you rent a bareboat yacht, then your charter comes without any crew, and you or someone in your group will need a license. The boat owner will require you to upload the boating resume or license of the person who will drive the boat. Most of our boat owners might also like to test your boating skills before you take your bareboat charter out on the water. When you charter a yacht with a captain included or add the captain and/or crew as an extra to your sailing adventure, then a certified skipper will be provided.
Guidelines to responsible yachting
If you’re looking to explore our beautiful planet, a yacht charter is a great place to start. Explore coral reefs with your snorkel, discover hidden bays and islands and generally enjoy the view of nature. Remember, that sailing motto: 'Take only photos, leave only wake' (OK, so we paraphrased). To be a responsible sailor, remember:
Don’t disturb coral or sealife
Take your trash home (and don’t throw anything in the sea)
Respect the locals and their customs wherever you go
