Yacht Management - Worldwide
What is Yacht management?
Simply put, yacht management is the supply of support and
advice to owners which ensures that the yacht is being
maintained, operated and administered to the highest possible
standards. Owners are then free to enjoy their time on board,
safe in the knowledge that every last detail is being taken care of.

offer you 12 weeks of international
sailing on your yacht or a similar
vessel at our more than
27 locations worldwide.
From our home base in Sidney, BC we offer you a Guaranteed Income Program, the Variable Income Program and a Single Payment Program at our more than 35 locations worldwide........
YACHT CHARTER MANAGEMENT: From a yacht owner’s perspective, chartering is the chance to turn an investment in leisure into an opportunity to generate revenue; truly the best decision you can make after purchasing your yacht. Placing your boat into charter service can substantially reduce the cost of ownership, while also enhancing its re-sale value by establishing a favorable reputation in the global charter marketplace.
Sunsail have limited the fleet size at the bases which offer this program and this enables the high standards of personal service for which we are well known and to maximize revenues for each individual yacht owner.
Sunsail understands the importance of taking good care of an expensive vessel. We will not compromise our maintenance standards. Our technical team recognizes that preventative maintenance is paramount and, for each vessel in our fleet, we develop an individual program that ensures that the yacht is well maintained and that charter commitments are met. Our full-time professional staff take pride in their work and are consistently complimented by our yacht owners and charter guests.
Our Advantage variable program is designed for boaters looking for more flexibility and owner's use in a yacht management program. Flexibility means more yacht choices, including an owner's version of any Leopard model, Beneteau sailboats, Beneteau Swift Trawlers, and Jeanneau sailboats. The program also offers unlimited use of your yacht and a choice of bases with destinations in the US, Bahamas, and BVI. Owners receive a percentage of charter revenues to offset operating expenses.
Guaranteed Income Program
With the Guaranteed Income program owners pay the full Sunsail purchase price of the yacht and place her into the Sunsail charter fleet. Each month you receive a fixed guaranteed amount of monthly revenue from Sunsail for the whole of the contract (Regardless of charter activity) Based on traditional financing, this monthly revenue will cover 100% of your monthly boat loan payment.
The duration of this option is either four and a half or five and a half years depending on location. At the end of the program the owner can either take over the management and responsibilities of the yacht, sell her through our brokerage office or ideally, discuss with us the availability of a "trade-in" towards the purchase of a new Sunsail yacht.
With the Option to Purchase program the owner does not receive an income. Instead they pay significantly less for the yacht at the outset. This single payment is 65% of the retail purchase price.
This contract is available with deliveries to Greece, Croatia, Thailand or French Polynesia. In these countries the title of the yacht has to sit locally with Sunsail until the end of the contract, at which time title is then signed over to the owner and the boat belongs to you.
The program length is usually 5 and a half years.
