Sail Grenadines will look after your yacht all year but she will normally be bareboat chartered the water from October until June. During the main season she will be based on Bequia and in the summer she will be typically stored in a Grenada boatyard, which is accepted as hurricane safe by most insurers or she can be skippered with a qualified captain and run the low/tropical storm season doing skippered charters. When in Bequia she will be checked daily with regular engine running and inspections and managed fully as needed.

We will advertise and arrange charters on the yacht – either skippered or bareboat – as agreed during the period when the boat isn’t being used for private use. In between charters, maintenance will be carried out on the boat on a preventive and repair basis.

We ask out owners to book their usage of the yacht in advance. She may be used at any time if she doesn’t have prior bookings. When she is chartered, the income from charter is split after deduction of direct charter turnaround expenses. Sail Grenadines will bill owners for insurance, maintenance and repair costs and mooring fees when not on charter and a deposit will be taken from charter clients equivalent to the insurance excess in order to cover any possible damage on charter – up to the insurance excess.

The yacht must be coded to a recognised commercial standard allowing her to be chartered and this standard must be maintained. Coding requirements vary depending on the nationality of the yacht in many cases. Email for an initial discussion and further information.
