Skippered Charter

Is there a site that will help with the old dream for requirements for starting a skippered yacht charter in Australia.
Sorry , probably been over this to many times.
I still dream of maybe sunset yours , wedding or small charters , to help offset the ongoing costs of boat ownership.
Already own the boat , have many miles of experience but no licence for charter work , if there is one.
Where do you start looking , I find all sorts of info , but not directly related.
Will dream on . Darren

Re: Skippered Charter

Ben , I believe the boat used to be in survey , so may be possible to get again , at a cost of course. I would typically like to skipper my own boat. Like everyone else I suppose. Wondering what licence would be required for a sailing vessel.

Re: Skippered Charter

You can get the boat back into survey but will need to meet all the new rules which seem to change constantly. The most difficult will be environmental. Black water and grey water tanks. Grey water getting all sinks, shower etc. You will need a coxswain cert to skipper for a boat upto about 40' and a masters 5 if larger.
