Where can i charter a smaller sailboat like an IP27 or an Alberg 30?

I am looking to charter a smaller sailboat, like an Alberg 30 and an Island Packet 27, so i can decide which one I prefer.
It seems like al the charter companies only charter larger boats.
I am trying to decide which boat to buy and it is between one of the older, Alberg/Pearson 1970's era smaller sailboats or an Island Packet 27.
Any one know where I can charter a smaller sailboat on the east coast of USA?

Don't know about the alberg,but, try Gratitude yachting center for the IP27. They are located in Rock Hall, Md. and are supposed to be the largest IP dealer in the country. They also rent/ charter their boats. Hope this helps.

It seems Gratitude is out of business. The office is empty and they are no longer on the IP website. The president is with another firm (J&S brokers maybe?) Sorry to see them go from the East Coast.

Wow. What a surprise, I never would have dreamed that. I guess the recession claims another victim. Any additional info would be appreciated.

I just drove by and then googled and found very little on it. I am trying to find my favorite broker. I am hoping she found a job somewhere else. I may need to buy or sell a boat someday. :-)

Jeez what a surprise... I just looked at yachtworld and their broker listing is not there. Gratitude was a good brokerage and charter company, such a shame..
