Yacht Charter Broker
Leave your charter vacation in experienced hands
With an extensive knowledge of the industry and first-hand experience of luxury charter yachts throughout the world, a 'yacht charter broker' is your key to a successful and unforgettable cruising vacation.
A yacht charter broker researches charter yachts, crews and the market on a daily basis and can offer you advice about every component of your charter, from the most suitable yacht to the best destinations and itineraries. They also attend seminars about marine law, contracts and destinations so are fully informed about the entire process including contracts, insurance policies and international legal considerations, all of which even the most seasoned charterer will struggle with on their own.
Retail charter brokers work directly with the yacht fleet managers and, similar to how a travel agent works on your behalf, will hold all money and protect the client’s interests throughout the process. They will also act as a buffer should, although very rare, any problems arise.
There are four main organisations that yacht charter brokers belong to, including MYBA, CYBA International, FYBA, and AYCA, although any charter broker from anywhere in the world can book any charter yacht anywhere in the world. Many charter brokers belong to more than one organisation, but looking out for these four leading logos is an important place to start when finding the right broker for you.
