The third consideration of yacht management is the rising cost of dockage, maintenance and insurance. This, combined with the current economic squeeze, has many owners reluctantly considering selling their boats because they can no longer justify the time and cost involved for upkeep against the time they are able sail. If this sounds familiar, the benefits of charter management are the perfect fit to offset your cost, and bring back the pleasure of ownership.

Experienced Yacht owners place their yachts in Yacht Charters of Mystic  (YCM) management program knowing it will be managed by our hands-on owner.

"Why do they call these pleasure boats when you spend so much time working on them?

If you are a yacht owner considering a charter management program, first you need to decide if bareboat charter management is right for you and your boat. Below are three things to consider while making this decision.

The first consideration is that most owners don't use their yacht as much as they would like to. The average owner in the Northeast only uses his yacht about 20 days a year. The typical sailing season, Memorial Day to Columbus Day, is about 120 days. Charter management provides an opportunity for the yacht to earn revenue instead of being idle at the dock.

The second consideration of yacht management is the time you have for maintenance and upkeep. Many boat owners live inland and keep their boats more than a quick drive to the marina. When you have the time to go sailing; the boat is hot and the water is a little stale from being closed for 2 or 3 weeks. When you check your systems, you find something must be fixed before you can sail. Instead of using your precious time sailing, you are fixing, cleaning, and getting the boat ready. Under yacht management, when your yacht is not earning revenue, it is clean and ready for you. So you don't need to ask yourself-
