Chartering an Ericson 35 Mk II

Hello all I am currently restoring an Ericson 35 MKII and am planning on doing charters with her next year in the USVI.

Any advice on how to obtain the licenses for business and what type of insurance would be awesome.

Also what safety regulations will I need to meet and that I should keep in mind while restoring the boat.

Also anything I should add to the boat that would be easy now that would give my sailboat a competitive advantage in the daytime chartering business.

Thank you,

Re: Chartering an Ericson 35 Mk II

I can only imagine there will be a lot of hoops to jump through.

The 1st thing I would do is create an LLC. Then check Gieco for commercial type insurance for your LLC. You will need Coast Guard certifications and sailing certifications.

An idea that I have would be to get in tight somehow with the Cruise line. They will list excursions as they visit islands. Your boat would be 1 option people could pick. Now, many of these people do not even belong on a boat but they have $$$.

Things to add would be all quality safty equipment.
