Consulting Services For Yacht Buyers

The Catamaran Guru team is available to help our readers navigate the often-complicated charter yacht management process. While operating and managing a charter company and boats, we have collected a wealth of "insider" knowledge, all now documented here in Catamaran Guru's website. We know all the pitfalls of charter yacht ownership but also understand that charter management can be incredibly rewarding and financially beneficial for the boat owner.

Chartering your yacht to offset the cost of ownership definitely makes sense, but only if done correctly. Our unique perspective as charter yacht owners has helped countless buyers and owners to make informed decisions and enjoy the benefits of charter yacht ownership. The purchase of a charter yacht is usually second only to buying a house in terms of cost. Yet, prospective buyers spend on average far more time researching their home purchase than they do a yacht.

The process can be very confusing and complex and objective and detailed information is not readily available. It makes sense to arm yourself with the best possible information before making that huge investment. Not only will our material save you much more than it costs, but it definitely will help you avoid common problems that could make your ownership a less than satisfying experience.
