Recommendations for charter company for slightly older cat

Hi all,

We are looking for any suggestions of charter companies in the southern US (Miami area would be perfect) that would be open to chartering an older cat (thinking 45' 2005-2010?). We are looking to charter it full time for the next two years then April-Dec after that.

Any advice would be welcome!

Thanks,
Kelly

Re: Recommendations for charter company for slightly older cat

Not many charter companies charter 10-15 year old boats. Most are closer to 5-8 yrs old.

It would be cheaper to buy a boat for 2 years and sell it, than charter a boat for 104 consecutive weeks. You'd be looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars to 'rent' the boat.

I didn't make myself clear, we will be buying the boat and are looking for a company to charter it for us since we won't be able to spend more than the occasional last minute week on it for the next two years.

Re: Recommendations for charter company for slightly older cat

Can you be more specific about make and model? A Lagoon 440 seems to be laid out like the newer style cats and are still in charter in Caribbean. Most other cats from that era do not have the semi walk around berths (at least in the rear cabins), the front cockpit or the flybridge, all popular features on charter cats. You could try "Fun in the Sun Charters” they operate in Ft. Lauderdale

FYI: "charter management" is the usual term for this service.
