Charter Management
A look at different yacht ownership options

Charter Management

Charter Management programs are a popular way of owning a yacht. They offer an excellent way of recovering many of the associated expenses of ownership whilst still offering you all the benefits and enjoyment of owning a yacht.

As UK Dealers for Dufour Yachts we are able to offer very attractive packages on the purchase of a new yacht entering our fleet. We can offer options on finance and can help you through every step of the process including training and familiarisation on your new yacht.

In addition we take the hassle out of owning a yacht by running a complete maintenance program so that your investment is being properly looked after ensuring she is ready for your own use as and when you want to go sailing.
