We are looking for 60ft+ sailing yachts to charter. diYachting offer a comprehensive Charter Management solution designed to help owners offset costs by chartering out their yachts in between their own use.  diYachting can take you through the entire process from setting the yacht up legally with MCA Coding & commercial registration, promoting her to retail clients and the broker network, co-ordinating the calendar and organising the charter contracts and fees, to getting client feedback at the end of the charter and sorting out any issues that may have occurred.

“Chartering has been a huge part of our business and life over the past 18 years and we pride ourselves in offering exceptional service to clients. We believe we offer some of the best crewed yacht charter holidays available in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Luxury yachting experiences, at affordable prices”

If you have a sailing yacht 60ft or over and would like to offset some of your outgoings, chartering her for just 4 - 6 weeks a year would help reduce your expenses by up to 50%.  Although there are initial expenses of setting the yacht up; MCA Coding, charter licences & pay VAT in her chosen charter area, maybe additional water sports equipment, new bed linens, towels and a photo shoot that shows off your beautiful yacht. Your crew will probably enjoy being kept out of a marina and the cash tips!

As your Charter Managers we will take care of all of this, get her listed on the internet and across the directories to market her to other charter brokers therefore expanding your yacht’s coverage to around the world. Once the booking comes in, we organise the itinerary & preferences with your crew making sure they are fully prepared to welcome the guests aboard and take them on an unforgettable cruise. 

As your charter managers we do not pass on the fees to you to list your yacht on the directories, we cover that with the commission we earn from the charters booked. We are MYBA (Worldwide Yachting Association) e-contract subscribers, this is the standard crewed charter contract used across the Med and Caribbean with subscribers vetted to ensure they handle and protect client funds correctly.

Marketing is very important, particularly having the right photos makes an enormous difference. We have several photographers that we work with for stills, drones and videos.  We’ll organise a shoot of the yacht and oversee it ourselves to make sure we get what’s needed.

When it comes to the actual charter, we’ll organise everything with the clients, send joining instructions to the guests so they know what to expect and what they need to bring.  I’ll also send an end of charter questionnaire so you can see what the guests are saying and what an amazing holiday they have had on your beautiful yacht.
