Not to throw too much cold water
on your parade, but consider the following:
1. Forget "The Islands". It will be way too expensive to get it there.
2. Forget someone taking it down to Florida at their expense. At the very, very least you are going to have to pay for fuel
. You probably are going to have to pay for the captains time and maybe his crew and provisions for almost a month.
3. There are a few charter companies in Florida. SW Florida Yachts is one. They may or may not take your boat on. Their inventory is more Mainship, Grand Banks
, Krogen, but I do see a Cruisers which should be similar. They will charge you for all significant maintenance
and waxing, take a percentage (roughly 40%) of the charter income
and give you the rest. When you finally try to sell, it will be worth less (maybe a lot less) than when you signed up with them.
So my advice is to cut your price
, take your losses and get out now.
