Charter Management - What we do

If you purchase, or already own a yacht which you would like to charter out - we can act as the Central Agents for the charter and manage the whole operation.

As Central Agents, we market the yacht, for charter, to other Charter Agents Worldwide. It's like a wholesale marketing operation.  We maintain the booking diary, and work closely with the owner and the skipper to ensure that the maximum revenue is obtained - whilst allowing for proper crew rest (recovery in a busy season) periods and scheduling in the owners own use.

Details of the yacht are circulated to Charter Agents, together with Crew Profiles and often sample menus and cruising itineraries. Regular updates on bookings and availability are circularised, and detailed schedules prepared for the clients as enquires are received.

Thereafter, we deal with the Yacht Charter Agreements, receive the funds (as stakeholders), and disburse the monies to the skipper (for the Advance Provisioning Allowance which the charterer provides) and to the owners (the net Charter Fee), and to the Government (for any VAT).

We are on hand to ensure smooth embarkation and to attend to the last minute hic-cups which result from late flights, bad weather, full Ports and etc.

 

What we charge

We charge a commission of five percent of the Charter Fee for this service.

The Charter Agent which sells the charter receives a fixed commission for selling the charter, and in the case that we sell a charter directly we charge only that fixed commission.

Being close to Cannes and Monaco, we are especially busy with the many Festivals in Cannes and the Grand Prix in Monaco. Our brokers have many years experience in dealing with the most detailed arrangements at these often complex festivals.

We are good at promoting our charter fleet for charter. As long ago as 1988 our brokers - together with the skippers of the charter yachts -  organised the first Charter Yacht Show in Antibes. We maintain excellent relations with all the major Charter Agents.

Appointing us as your Central Agent for the charter of your yacht will give you many more advantages. We offer shore based office facilities to your skipper, and as major yacht managers and commercial yacht certification experts we are able to pass advice to your skipper and keep him and you - as owner - up to date with the latest Rules & Regs. It's a sort of club. We invite you to join now. E-mail your initial enquiry to us at
