Yacht Charter in Sweden
Sweden happens to be the biggest Nordic country, with a surface spanning almost half of the Scandinavian Peninsula and with a long shoreline bordering the Baltic Sea, which would make it the perfect destination for yacht charter tourists because of all the fjords, islands and islets carved in the granite by glacial erosion.
With a cold climate but with a warm and welcoming people, yacht charter Sweden should be among the top ten destinations in Europe if you're serious about sailing. Though distinctly different from sailing in the Mediterranean, a sail on the Baltic is a noteworthy experience, and the historical landmarks are also worth visiting.
Regions of particular interest to the yacht charter sailor are Bohuslan and the Stockholm archipelago (the largest in the world). Here, you're not only going to find sleepy fishing villages turned holiday resorts like Marstrand and Nykoping, but you're also going to find thriving metropolises like Stockholm and Goteborg where the active tourist can enjoy a hoard of fun activities as well as plenty of sightseeing opportunities.
If you're thinking of chartering a yacht in Swede, here are some of the things you'll need to take into consideration: first off, here are 3 categories of licenses that apply to different types of boats: the mandatory driver's license for boats with a hull longer than 10m and faster than 15 knots, the license for the boats longer than 12m and with a beam higher than 4m and, finally, the license for pleasure boats equipped with a motor capable of propelling them up to 30 knots.
Interesting enough, locals that exceed the age of 55 or people living on islands that have no bridge or ferry connection to the mainland, the mandatory license does not apply. However, if you already have a skipper license issued in your home country, you can easily go sailing, as they recognize most forms of sailing certification. The only thing you'll have to worry about is that your qualification matches the type of boat you're sailing.
Yacht charter Sweden is a country with a long maritime tradition and with a potentially endless touristic appeal. You'll find the local yachting infrastructure to be very good and very well organized, as well as a lot of companies with plenty of experience in the field. This will surely make up for those tourists with a lack of expertise in this sort of holidays. However, you should be aware that the Swedish coast, is not the most accessible to beginner skippers.
