Does anyone have experience with last minute charters? I am looking to charter
a boat (36' or so, for two people) from March 26 to April 2. The prices quoted by Sunsail and Moorings for those dates are all full rate, high season. But I have been told by some that if you wait until 16 days prior, that some companies will give up to a 50% discount.
I realize that it is a gamble, but I am flexible on the boat, and I can't imagine that every boat on St Martin
would be booked for that week. I will also be on the island for two weeks prior to that date, and I'm thinking it should be possible to find a boat at a discount. Has anyone else done this.
(please don't tell me to fly to the BVI, my schedule is already set).
