Is your yacht sitting at the dock costing you money? Consider Yacht Management
The average yacht owner in the northeast uses their yacht about 20 days a year. The typical sailing season, Memorial Day to Columbus Day, is about 120 days. Charter management provides an opportunity for your yacht to earn revenue instead of being idle at the dock.
Do you have the time for maintenance and upkeep. Under our yacht management, when your yacht is not earning revenue, it is clean and ready for you.
The rising cost of dockage, maintenance, and insurance takes some of the fun out of yacht ownership. let Yacht Charters of Mystic help offset some of those costs by chartering your yacht through our charter company.
Experienced yacht owners place their yachts with Yacht Charters of Mystic (YCM) in our management program. If you are interested contact us and we will go over our management program and see if it is right for you.
