What does Charterlink do for owners?

It takes some work and expertise to make bareboat chartering work in New Zealand. You need to operate under a Maritime Transport Operators Certificate, (which involves a raft of requirements physically and operationally), have the vessel in survey, and manage the marketing, enquiries, bookings, customer services, and payment processes. Charterlink has been doing this for many years.
