Default Private yacht cruise

Has anyone ever charted a private yacht for a week or so? My best friend's son is getting married in June and is considering charting a sailboat and crew for his honeymoon. Any first-hand information about your experiences with this type of cruise would be great. Thanks.

The only information I can share is that it sounds absolutely wonderful and out of my price range.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that some are actually very affordable.

ML..
Tweety's brother used to have (still may have, not sure) a boat kept in St Marteen, with a crew of 2, that he rented out.

On one port visit while on a cruise Tweety arranged for the boat for the day, and we went sailing. It was a fabulous day, and they made us a delicious lunch onboard as well.

To do it for a full week, you'd have to really LIKE sailing. I don't think I could take being bounced around that much for a full week
