    Thanks! I used to do a fair amount of bareboat sailing in my AB days -- was wondering if anybody offered chartered yachts...

    let me tell you something folks, if you can afford $58,000/week for a yatch rental, you don't have any accessibility issues.

    Wheelz has that right , I work with a company that does Yacht management and towing , and the closest I can get to being on one is pulling it with my pontoon boat when we do repos..
    MOST of them are just not accessible because they make every inch of the yacht usable, and that means small hatches , ladders and vents.. So the only way I can get on on is to be swung up on a davit,, I passed up a party a few weeks back because I did not want to be swung around on a davit 30 foot in the air ,especially at the end of the night when we have all had a few,, And then have to run my boat back to the ramp in the dark..

    True that. Money (and its availability) can create a more level playing field.

    Or accessible yacht.

    Cool wheelchair accessible super yacht

    Hey,

    I thought you might be interested to know about a one-of-kind wheelchair accessible yacht, called "Uri".

    The Uri is a true blue-water motorsailer, uniquely designed to be operated and enjoyed by a wheelchair-bound paraplegic, and it was conceived and commissioned by a paraplegic.

    For photo and more information about this state-of-the-art super-yacht please contact me or visit our website: http://wheelchairsailing.com/


    Warm regards,

    Michelle
