Two-time Conch charterer

We chartered with Conch in November 2007 on a Beneteau 463 and again in November 2009 on Bavaria 50. We are bargain hunters, so both times, they offered the size boat we needed at the rock-bottom price, and they provide 10 days for others' 7 or 8 day cost. We have had no complications with them, service was more than adequate and friendly. The boats are older, so there tends to be something--not a deal breaker--that doesn't work or needs limping along. We've never been charged, but then, we usually leave the boat in better condition than we found it. It helps to be handy and proactive during your short stay aboard. Consider it training for owning your own boat.

We will charter from them again, but likely from a little higher up in their fleet.
