Hamble Point Yacht Charters - Guardianage/Yacht Charter Management Scheme
Owning a yacht is a dream for many people, but most yacht owners are only too aware that alongside the delights of sailing, is a considerable time investment.
Often there are so many jobs to be done to ensure the boat is seaworthy, safe and fully-prepared for a sail, that the amount of time spent sailing is reduced
For boat owners who live some distance from their marina, an additional concern can be to ensure that their yacht is safe and secure at all times.
As we are based in Hamble Point Marina overlooking the pontoons, whilst you are a member of either of our Yacht Management Schemes (Yacht Charter Management or Yacht Guardianage) we will ensure that a watchful eye is kept on your yacht at all times.
Some of the yacht management services we offer include:
- Arranging berthing at Hamble Point Marina
- Full commercial marine insurance as part of our fleet policy, offering you cost savings
- Arrange, oversee and/or conduct all routine and exceptional maintenance and servicing as much or as little as you require
- Arrange, complete and oversee fault-finding and repair or yacht refits
- Arrange the annual winter haul out and carry out the winter maintenance
- Prepare the yacht for use so you can simply turn up and go sailing. This can include cleaning, refuelling and managing any work you identify whilst out sailing
We select and work with reputable local companies to ensure that the quality of all yacht maintenance is maintained and completed satisfactorily.
In addition to the above, if you wish to participate in our Yacht Charter Management Scheme then this can offset many of the costs of ownership and can even provide additional income.
How does Yacht Guardianage or Yacht Charter Management work?
Simply choose to Hamble Point Yacht Charter to oversee your yacht through either our Yacht charter management or and for a monthly fee we will look after your boat for you and prepare her for your use as briefly described above.
If you would like to join our Yacht Charter Management programme your yacht will be added to our charter fleet in which case you will receive all of the benefits of the Yacht Management Scheme and we will also pay you an income for any yacht charter use.
How much Income can I expect from Yacht Charter?
Typically chartering your boat will generate enough income to cover the majority of costs arising from yacht ownership and in some years you may generate an income from your yacht charters. We don’t promise an income level, but we will happily show you the accounts of our current yacht charter fleet most closely resembling the boat that you are considering placing with us.
We pride ourselves on the standard of our charter yachts. Any boat under our yacht charter management scheme must comply with safety legislation and will follow a rigorous maintenance and cleaning schedule. Our clients are often surprised by the good condition of even the older charter boats on our fleet, which despite the additional usage, tend to retain their value better than similar yachts of the same age that have not been chartered.
