Skipper is the captain of a smaller vessel. He drives the boat and keeps it in order, takes care of the paperwork in ports and marinas, transfers the vessel from one marina to another between the charters (if necessary), and takes care of the guests. He is there to answer their questions, suggest itinerary and activities, and help them with any possible problems. If there is no hostess on board, he sometimes prepares the meals and cleans up after the guests.
It is skippers responsibility to meet the guests and take them to the boat (if necessary), as well as to accompany them off the boat to the airport, bus or train station, or elsewhere. To manage a vessel, he is required to have a valid skipper and a VHF licence.
