Charters for less than 1 week...YES

You don''t specify bareboat or Crewed Charter. Orion is available all year in the U.S. and BVI for less-than-a-week rates, Crewed or Captain only.E-mail us for more info.

Charters for less than 1 week...YES

I know that Go Native Yacht Charters in Miami will send a boat out for "broken" weeks. We went down for 2.5 days and chartered their Fountaine Pajot Venezia 42. Of course, as you said, price-wise, they made it worth their while, but hey, thay''re business people too! Also, they offer a 10% return customer discount which is nice. great people, too. Really enjoyed the experience.

We have a boat in St. Thomas with VIP. Many times I have seen "Better than Popcorn" a
Jenneau SO 40 charter 3/4 days and even as little as one day. The rates vary all over the place for those charters. I think with VIP since we are so small we''re more personal, and the rate for these types of last min. charters is "let''s make a deal".
Give us a try next time.

I would guess that the charter companies feel that it is not worth the bother to prep the boat for a short duration charter and then clean it, repair it, etc. at the end.

I''m often frustrated when heading off on vacation...this has happened at least three
times. I only want to charter for 3-4 days,
not a week, and I go in the off season, so its low traffic time. Charter operations
tend to "force" you toward a week, at least in terms of cost.

Day rates are way to high over a 3-5 day period, the selection of boats limited (usually day sailers), and so on. This has
happened to me in the USVIs, the Keys, and
other FLA locations. As a businessman, it
bothers me to have an asset setting idle, when it could be making money (particularly
in the off season).

Reactions? Solutions? Suggestions?
