Placing your boat in charter makes boat ownership possible right now. Start living the dream today!
The story is all too familiar. You purchase your first yacht. You experience your first week cruising in luxury, night after night watching the sun go down from aboard your new vessel. And then… back to the daily grind.
Though you dream of your next adventure aboard your new boat, it isn’t quite as easy to get away as much as you would like to. Weeks or months may pass between outings. In the meantime your vessel awaits patiently for your return, just sitting there, idle.
Wouldn’t it be great to use that time away to offset the cost of purchasing and maintaining your boat? Just as renting a vacation home can offset its cost, we can do the same for your yacht by placing it in a world class charter program.
Not only can you enjoy cruising in idyllic locations within the safety net of a fully managed charter fleet, but charter investments also offer an economical path toward accelerated boat ownership. By putting your boat in charter, you can enjoy private sailing now!
