We are planning a holiday in Maine and New England in August and would like to spend a few days sailing preferably around the Casco Bay area. We are looking to charter a sailing boat without a skipper. We have only found very expensive options with very old boats (1970ies or 80ies the newest).
Does anybody know which company does bareboat charters with new boats at reasonable price? Casco Bay seems ideal for sailing and although there are many options to go on a shooner with a group and a skipper this is not what we are looking for.
In case the sailing option would prove difficult we would rent a cottage and try and hire a small boat with an outboard engine and would look for suggestions. Are they easier to find?
Thank you very much
