Re: Charter business

I am a relief captain for a charter business providing three hour tours.

How much you make depends on location.

One guy I know runs his charter bussiness all year round. He is COIed for 20 people for day charters. He make some money. HE comes north during summer and down to the south during the winter. Another person I know runs his business, 6-pack, during the summer. This particular operation pays for all the boats expenses, essentially off setting his ownership costs.

If you are looking to make a profit, you need to be either in the southern coastal US or in the carribean. If you live in the Northeast or midatlantic, chances are you won't make a profit.
