We've chartered something 15 or 16 times. Our last charter was with Dreamyacht. I wouldn't put a boat
with charter with them if they were the last company in the world. Our experience with them was horrible. While they did offer us a substantial discount to go back to French Polynesia
, there was no assurance that we wouldn't have a repeat of the last time. We are chartering in 2021 with Tahiti
Yacht Charters. Beyond broken promises, and the continued marketing
of a boat
that in our opinion is misrepresented, as a last resort, you agree to litigate it in Mauritius. This is as a charterer, and I presume it's the same as an owner. Google
it. Who do you think will come out on the better end of that lawsuit?
Our nearly-new Dufour
520 (that is only 49'11") was supposed to have 4 double cabins. We booked it before it was even built. The double cabin
bunks were 33" wide at the hips. On top of that, there was duct tape instead of real repairs
all over the boat. The running rigging
was nearly inoperable. The response from the DYC base? "No one sails". WE DO.

If you want something different, we've chartered a bunch of times with www.bviyachtcharters.com
, and their boats have been fantastic. One of the best boats we've ever had was 5 years old from them. You would never have known it had been in charter that long.
