Marketing your boat

To help you secure as many bookings as possible, we will maintain an updated listing of your yacht on Central Yacht Agent (CYA), the primary platform for charter yacht brokers. This listing will include current photos, crew information, pricing, and more. We also communicate with the crew to gather feedback after charters and add client reviews to listings, making sure potential clients are well aware of the fantastic adventures that guests are having aboard your yacht.

We create bespoke brochures for your yacht, showcasing the amazing photos, features, crew, meals and everything that can be expected from being aboard. We also work very closely with a professional marketing agency to help market your vessel on social media, Google, and other online means, whilst also creating effective email campaigns for that direct promotion. The combination and mix of marketing techniques means we're able to market your boat to a huge range of potential clients, and brokers.

Broker collaboration

Charter yacht brokers are absolutely crucial for the success of your yacht in the charter market. These brokers are experts in booking crewed yacht charters for their clients and there are thousands of them worldwide. They run their own companies and websites, where they promote the yachts they recommend for charter. When clients reach out to them directly, they suggest the yachts that best suit their needs.

 

The most successful brokers have extensive knowledge about the charter industry and the yachts they work with. As brokers ourselves, we have access to a database where we can share information and updates about the yachts in our charter fleets. We can also keep you informed about any crew changes, special offers, or discounts. It's all part of our commitment to making the charter experience smooth and enjoyable for everyone involved.

Quality, boutique service

We deploy a very personal, hands-on approach to yacht charters to ensure our owner's peace of mind during the charter season. We're a small, boutique business that carefully handpicks our yachts, and owners, to make sure we build enjoyable, trusting, and fruitful partnerships. We're a team built out of previous yacht Captains and Chefs, and we know what an owner-manager relationship should look like.
