Of course, Owners have first call on their vessels. Owners fence off any time they want and Charters are not accepted for those times.
What's more, we prepare the boat for an owner trip in the same way that we would for a Charterer; our Year- round upkeep offers ready-to-use availability.
It's true that if you can find a place in one of the fleets in the Pacific Islands or Australia, the boat will get even more use, and therefore a higher income.
However, our Owners charter with us because their vessels are accessible... if the weather looks OK for the weekend they dont have to book a plane to go sailing
