Use the filters above the search results to narrow the results down until you find your perfect boat. Some boats can be booked online there and then, and online payments taken. Other boats may require a message back to the owner first, then they too can be booked through the site.

2. Listing a Boat

If you’re interested in listing your boat, create an account, and follow the steps through to submit all of the necessary information about your vessel, upload photos, and documentation, even a video of your boat. You set the rules, you can choose for example to have, no pets, no parties, or anything to make you feel comfortable or even restrict charter to defined groups such as members of your yacht club. You’re in control of the charter price, and set this where you want to either towards the top or lower end of the market. You also block out dates when you don’t want the boat made available, should you want to sail the boat yourself on particular dates – after all it’s still your boat first and foremost!
