What Does a Yacht Charter Vacation Broker Do?

Hitting the Docks Running!

It's time to fly to the Caribbean for the yacht charter show circuit! As a broker for yacht charters, we sell customized vacations on private yachts and travel to the Caribbean & Mediterranean to check out the boats, meet crews, engage clients and keep up with market trends. We will begin the fall/winter 2018 yacht show circuit in San Juan, Puerto Rico exploring and looking forward to a brilliant sunset over the ocean with a tropical drink in hand.

Then, it's a quick hop to the Virgin Islands where we owned & operated a 72' charter yacht for 18 years. This is our "backyard" and it's filled with longtime friends and yacht charter brokers who are like family. The camaraderie between everyone at the shows is electric and fun! We're looking forward to seeing the newest yachts & their polished crews.

We'll be "yacht-hopping" from 9 am to 11 pm every day! It's a lot of work but we enjoy taking time to connect with the crews and the ambiance onboard each catamaran, sailing monohull, motor yacht, and power catamaran. We always look forward to the competitions designed specifically for showing off the talent, determination, and creativity of chefs, captains, deckhands, stewards, and stewardesses.

Questions that We Like to Ask the Crews when We Interview Them for You:

Is The Crew Inspired?

We represent only professionally certified yacht charter Crews who show a real passion for their jobs, have a focus on safety for their guests as well as teaching their guests about life aboard. Great crews have an inner knowledge of when to do things before the client even knows that they have a need.

5 Top Questions We Ask:

1. What are the 3 biggest assets of this crewed charter yacht?

2. Does this yacht have a favorite type of charter? Couples, Families, Singles?

3. What percent of this yacht's charters are repeats? Happy clients always come back again & again!

4. What are the Crews main interests and strengths?

5. How safety conscious is the Crew? We take a very close inspection of the safety of the yacht such as exterior rigging & fittings and the condition of the decks. Then we inspect the condition of the interior and all soft goods such as linens and carpets, the overall decor of the yacht as well as cleanliness.
