Yacht Charter Management

In A Nutshell...

Charter Management is us covering all your bills and looking after your yacht for you. In return we get to use it when you are not. We take care of all the maintenance (at our expense!), pay all your mooring fees and insurance, and generally make sure your yacht is looked after and loved as if it were our own.

First Class Sailing offer charter management through our own carefully designed Boat Ownership Scheme. To download a copy of our Boat Ownership Scheme Brochure.

  • You own your own boat and sail it when you want for 40+ days a year. So you still get plenty of time to enjoy the thrill and excitement of sailing, or relax on board with friends and family.
  • We take care of all the maintenance to a professional standard and pay all your running costs, including mooring fees, maintenance costs and insurance - potentially saving you around £10,000 per year and the headache of keeping on top of all the admin.
  • There is no need for you to worry about whether your boat is tied up correctly when a storm is forecast; or when the next engine service is due; or whether the winches need a service. You can rest assured your yacht will be carefully looked after at all times.
  • Whilst youre not using your boat, we will sail her with carefully vetted skippers and professional instructors.
  • If we use your yacht for more than 65 days we start paying you an income of £150 per day.
