How to Charter

Use our Yacht Search to narrow down your selection of the yachts or simply call us and let us know what you are looking for from your charter. We'll provide you with the best options available on your preferred dates and the waters.

Not sure of your destination? We'll provide you plenty of ideas and choices of beautiful waters to consider. Take advantage of our skills and vast chartering experience to explore a multitude of possibilities for a truly luxurious vacation.

Once you decide on a yacht and secure the dates for the desired destination, we'll send you the necessary paperwork required to reserve your charter. We will then work with you to personalize your vacation by understanding your preferences, arranging for the water sports equipment of your choice as well as jet or helicopter service, private excursions, limousine transfers...anything that will help make your stay pleasurable. Please let us know all your likes and dislikes; we love to pay attention to details such as your favorite CDs, DVDs, choice of gourmet cuisines, selection of wines, your favorite flowers and anything else you desire. We can also arrange a spectacular party on board for your guests or that pleasant surprise you wish to give that someone special. So, step on board, get pampered and enjoy the bubbly champagne and white sandy beaches as you coast along at your pace across the blue waters.
