I am slightly biaised when I say the British Virgin Islands
is the best place to charter
. I have an L420 in charter down there and the owner of the Martha R used to frequent this board and may still be listening. Either one of us, I am sure, would be more than willing to have you aboard. Send me a personal message if you want.
Look through this very long thread for some info. You'll see that BadgerMan is not a fan. In fact he chartered my boat and it evidently didn't match his tastes. I have received very positive feedback from later charterers. I'm reluctant to post the comments I have received on this board but I have made some of the feedback available on my personal website.
We also are planning on living aboard
our boat when we can. If they meet your needs, these are great boats. Off my website (link below) you'll see links to two other L420 in private ownership
already on their travels.
I'm pretty sure you'll need to go through a broker. I have experience of only one broker so I really don't feel qualified to recommend as I have no way to compare. The brokers do read this board so chances are they'll reach out to you.
If you PM me and provide your email
address, I can send you an older price
sheet. It won't be up to date but it will give you a good idea of the option costs.
