For sure the number of crew members depends on the yacht’s standards and its dimension.

Bareboat charter means chartering the boat with a skipper. Don’t forget that all the vessels available in the bareboat can be rented also with a captain. So if you are not able to drive the boat, you can hire a skipper that will take care of it. A skipper usually just drive the boat and clean it externally. If you would like to receive more services, as internal cleaning and cooking, than you can add an hostess or a cook.

The cabin charter is synonymous of shared charter, usually available aboard catamarans: you will rent the boat with other people and if you spend the night aboard, you pay just for your cabin.
