Charter Management
Charter Management
Perfection in everything

An approach that marries best-in-class yacht marketing with West Nautical’s expertise.

We intentionally keep our fleet of represented yachts small so our team can dedicate more time to individual yacht marketing. Our approach is to expertly build yacht brands, define the market niche, and maximise promotion.

Our responsibility is to manage the charter booking process on behalf of the owner to maximise net income, control operational costs and properly negotiate charter contracts. We ensure yachts are represented in a competitive manner, commercially effective and legally sound, whilst respecting the personal requirements and instructions of the owner.

Our services include:
Defining our client ambitions so the goal drives our strategic approach
Visit the yacht to ensure a comprehensive and current picture of the yacht, along with her facilities and crew
Think boldly to identify rich and engaging storytelling angles associated with the yacht proposition
Concept big creative ideas to maximise attention and interest in the yacht
