seabattical

Has anyone had experience (positive or negative) about "seabattical". this is a charter company with less than 6 boats specializing in long term charter in the BVI. I am thinking of listing my 41 Hunter with them.

Re: seabattical

Why would you want your boat used for long term charter with strangers at all? What is long term. I don't think anyone can stay there for more than 30 days.

Re: seabattical

good question, one I thought about. Bottom line; life changes, not using the boat enough. either I sell her in a soft market, probably not to buy one for a while, or rent it out to strangers and use it some.

Re: seabattical

Just keep in mind that chartering will put some very notable wear and tear on her.
