Mr. bigman1: ? how do you 'wear a boat out' ? my rude answer = you must be joking... or not sailing ...
If you sail as little as 2 months a year and keep your boat the rest of the year inside a hall you might keep it longer...
if you sail your boat all year around it will get damaged in many places... I do sail since 7 years around the world in all kind of weather and had to replace the odd things...
charter boats are sailed and heavily used by the customers in nearly all countries all year round and a charter company will sell it when they find out that the costs of maintenace are much to high to keep the boat.
Besides, if you have a charter company you are able to buy boats from the manufacturer a lot cheaper than 'normal' people do, and you always look for the 'cheapest' version of it...
I don't think I have to explain more about how boats and all in them are getting old and worn out ?
?

Dear Mr Privleoplag: In case you are not catching up with your american grammar (my english grammar is basic but I am Norwegian as an excuse)
I wrote = I HAD a charter company ...
- and my boats are sold to private people because of their immaculate state
and you, dear sailor, as someone being around the world you should take care to whom and how you are talking to, you should have learned that by now ...LOL...

It seems to me that in Europe the average age is higher to sell a charter boat, I would say 9/10 years:

Kiriacoulis : Second Hand Yachts

Funny, I thought that the Americans liked more old boats than the Europeans
