What is it exactly that a yacht charter broker does, and do you really need one? The simple answer is yes, when looking to charter a yacht for a vacation, calling on the expertise of a knowledgeable broker is prudent. One with experience will not only guide you through the process of choosing the right yacht, he or she will recommend yachts and destinations that they have experienced firsthand.
A seasoned yacht charter broker is crucial to getting exactly what you want and expect from private yacht charter. Offering an unbiased perspective of each yacht, he or she is able to pinpoint your needs and expectations, and choose the yacht for charter that best suits you and your guests. Going directly to the yacht is never a good idea, as the yacht’s goal is to win business.
