Charter Yacht management

Chartering your own yacht can, if managed properly, significantly reduce the yearly cost of owning a yacht. Scandinavian Marine can assist in setting up a charter program which will not only be beneficial to your finances, but will also keep your crew in shape and your yacht in top condition and well maintained. A positive charter record can be beneficial for a later sale of the yacht.

Before any private yacht can qualify as a commercial charter yacht, it has to go through a compliance process under Flag and Class statutory regulations. If the yacht complies or can be brought under compliance, it can operate as a commercial vessel. An official flag state surveyor will carry out the required inspections, and Scandinavian Marine can oversee and supervise this process, on the owners’ behalf.
