Why Buy a Yacht Used in the Crewed Charter Industry ?

Most of the Yachts that Southern Trades Yacht Sales represent are active, Crewed Charter Yachts.....Why should you consider purchasing one even if you do not want to continue in the industry?

1. These are not "Bare Boat" charters that have been heavily chartered without full-time, professional crews on board to handle all maintenance issues.

2. The level of competition in the Crewed Charter Industry is very high, therefore; to compete the Yacht needs to be in as near to Perfect Condition as possible. If guests board the Yacht for a week and find all sorts of issues, that Yacht will quickly be out of business. All the Charter Yacht Brokers through-out the world send their guests follow up letters asking about the Yacht, the Crew, the Food, the Itinerary, etc....if there are any negatives that Broker will quit booking the Yacht as well as usually passing this information to associates in the industry and they too quit booking.

3. If there is an issue with the Yacht during a charter, the crew needs to be able to take care of it immediately, therefore; all Crewed Charter Yachts have an extremely extensive list of spare parts, both on the Yacht and in storage. The repairs need to be made instantly so as not to upset or spoil the guests' vacation...so a Crewed Charter Yacht is Very well stocked with spare parts.

4. The old saying about "the man with the most toys win" holds very true in the Crewed Charter Industry....all these Yachts have far more toys and sports equipment than any private yacht out there....the list includes large, powerful inflatables capable of towing all the water skis, tubes, wake boards, wake skates, kneeboards etc....these Yachts have tons of board games, video equipment, WiFi connectivity, large screen TV's (many with TV's in each cabin) DVD players, dive and snorkel gear, windsurfers, SUP paddle boards, surfboards, kayaks, kite boards, etc, etc....the more toys the larger circle of prospective guests the Yacht will appeal to.

5. If you intend on staying in the Crewed Charter Yacht industry, most all of the Yachts have pre-booked, ongoing, income producing charters that can be included in the sale.

6. I have told clients over the years "I will match any of the Crewed Charter Yachts in our fleet with any sister ship sitting at the local Yacht Club back home and I'll pretty much guarantee the Crewed Charter Yacht is in better condition and far better equipped"

7. We are aware of the negative comments in the Yacht Sales Industry about buying a charter boat....Please do not mistake a First Class, Luxury Crewed Charter Yacht with a typically run down "bareboat".
