The biggy in the charter business is Moorings/Sunsail.
Both have excellent websites.
Thanks, I know those of course but in case you want to compare and check several companies there are those websites that do that. Is globesailor a reliable one?

It’s pretty hard to compare companies by their website. All you’re comparing is the quality of their marketing departments. Value shopping is much harder than price shopping. We once used a broker in the Caribbean, Ed Hamilton Yacht Charter Agents. The charter companies paid their fee. Their website says they cover the Med too.

I have used globesailor once and the experience was very professional and efficient. Equally importantly, the underlying charter company - Alternatrive Sailing in Brittany - was a class operation and so our overall impression was that we would do it again if we were ever chartering again. However, now that we are aboard our own vessel and cruising nearly full time (for this year, at least) we have no need to go back.

Hope this helps

Dream Yacht Charter has a small base in Turkey, but you cvan also access Turkey through their much larger Greece bases. From Rhodes or Kos it is a short sail to parts of Turkey. There is an additional charge to enter Turkey with Greek boats

I second Ed Hamilton. You tell them what you want and they get you numerous quotes and offer valuable suggestions. I used them just last year and am 100% satisfied with the service.

Hope Swift yacht charter can find you a boat in the Caribbean and along the eastern US. She may do Mediterranean, but I am not sure. Your cost for her service is ZERO - the charter company pays her.

Sometimes it's best to pick up a phone and talk to a real person. This is one such case IMO. A good broker knows where the deals are, knows which boats are lemons, and has the clout to force the charter base to make things right if you get poor service. A broker won't cost you any extra, and you'll usually get a free cruising guide out of the deal.
