buzzhornet Are you happy then owning a boat in a charter fleet? I am considering it and I am looking for advice on the real deal of what happens with the Moorings program. How expensive is it in the long run?

I previously owned a moorings boat and sold 1 chareter a year. You wont know notice any difference in treatment. You pay the owner (at a discount) he books the charter with the
owners desk and your off and sailing. If anyone is interested in upgrading to a nicer yacht for less money and more flexability visit my website at We charter Cirrus out 3 times a year to qualified sailors. New sails, dodger/bimini,inverter, TV, Moving map Gps..much more. jeff 972-774-8145

I have a new B50 with Sunsail in Tortola and am unable to use all my time. I''d be interested in discussing discount charters.

We own a Jeanneau 45.2 in charter with TMM out of Tortola, British Virgin Islands. We regularly book charters direct and can offer significant savings through an owner''s discount and free additional days. Please contact me for details.

I have a 505 with the Moorings. Since I can''t use all 8 weeks available to me I sell several. Normally I discount 40% of the Moorings rate so the discount is large. The Moorings handles the booking and the paperwork is forwarded directly to the user. You will receive the same treatment as any other Charter or perhaps better since you are a guest of an owner. Sail of owners weeks is a contractual item. Some companies do not allow it or discourage it. Sunsail and the Moorings advertise it as a perk of ownership and a way to offset the cost. You can go to for a list of owners with extra time to sell.

As an owner at VIP in St. Thomas, we have owners time each year. If we don''t use the time we are able to sell it, give it to a friend, or a charity. The only additonal cost to the charterer is the insurance deductable which is about $25.00 per day.

We own a boat, Lagoon 410, in charter with Sunsail and I can assure you that you get same or actually better service than regular charterers when you book trough the owner and in our case a 25% discount.
The link with has all the information that you may neeed.
The only problem that we have encountered is that the boat is sometimes already booked when we inquire about any given time period and also the fact that we have only 4 weeks of personal use, so they sell pretty fast. The answer is to reserve early in order to get the timeframe you want.

Best of luck
