I found that if you are booking a trip 8 months to a year ahead of time, you should use Sailonline.com to buy time from owners. This will save you several thousand dollars on your charter
. If you book closer to your charter
date, the discounts are still better than the charter company discounts, but may be about the same as those found on latesail.com. The problem I found is that most owner's time is already completely booked for the year right now. Moral of the story would be to book early through an owner or late using the latesail discounts (either through their site or through contacting the charter agencies directly).
