The Advantages of Using a Charter Yacht Broker!


The success of your yacht charter depends primarily on finding the right yacht at the best price. A yacht that provides the proper accommodation, living space and amenities. That is right for the itinerary you desire. That has no bad surprises. And with a crew that's complimentary to your party.

Charter Brokers are professionals in the business of finding you the right yacht and crew. In fact, their livelihood depends upon it! Charter Brokers do the searching for you - they research the yachts, crews, and then they negotiate on your behalf. This service does not increase the price, in fact in many cases the broker can get you a better deal because of their relationships in the business.

Charter Brokers attend seminars about marine law, contracts and destinations, so they can be helpful through the entire process of the charter, from your initial yacht search, to signing the contract, to arranging the charter logistics and provisioning, to seeing your happy faces in photos at the end of the charter.

There are three key reasons to use a Yacht Charter Broker when planning your next charter:

Free, unbiased advice to get you on the right boat. We want to put you on the right yacht so that you will come back year after year, as opposed to operators who want only to put you on their boat. In consultation with you we will recommend suitable yachts from among our multiple owners and operators to assure the yacht you choose is right for you.

Someone on your side if something goes wrong. While the vast majority of charters go flawlessly, if something does happen, you need someone on your side to help solve the issue. This is especially true if you're chartering in a foreign country where you may not know local customs or even be able to speak the local language. We work with our operators on a daily basis, and because of our size and relationships we can push hard for a satisfactory result.

The same or better price than if you book direct. The price you are charged is normally the same as the Owners/Operators charge their direct clients, and propose on their websites. In fact, if you're dealing with a MYBA yacht (most of the key luxury yachts) the price is guaranteed to be the same no matter how you charter your yacht. So you can work with the broker who provides the best service and knowledge.

So next time you're chartering, we highly recommend that you use a broker. It's worth the time savings and peace of mind, and the service is free!
