If you own a yacht but don’t want to deal with potential charterers yourself then you can make the most of our ‘Charter Management’ offering here at INT-MARINE. Let our team of experts take care of chartering your yacht for you.
Reasons to let INT-MARINE manage the charter activity for you

We operate as the interface between you (the owner), your captain, and the client
We can ensure your yacht adheres to the conditions required by law
We’ll make sure your yacht is chartered legally, in accordance with the regularly updated legislation
We’ll liaise with the client/organisation on your behalf managing their requests and needs
We’ll arrange the period of the charter, and manage the boat and crew for the duration of the trip
We’ll promote your yacht to potential clients through a wide range of channels
We have access to MYBA’s search tool YACHTFOLIO allowing us to advertise your yacht to a worldwide audience
We will also advertise your yacht to our own database of potential clients
We can offer professional advice regarding the level of maintenance required to satisfy the high demanding charter clientele
Peace of mind for you and your clients
Whilst there are a number of owner-managed yachts on offer for charter, there is a general reluctance by the professional yacht charter community to place highly valued charter clients on these boats. This is because there’s a tendency to avoid placing these clients in the hands of an owner who has the ambiguous position of being both the broker and the owner.
INT-MARINE has been a member of MYBA (The Worldwide Yachting Association) since 2006, and has been a Board Member for 6 years. The association with MYBA gives INT-MARINE worldwide credibility, having been recognised for our professionalism and ethics. This means both clients and owners can rest assured knowing they’re in safe hands when chartering a yacht through INT-MARINE.
Let us take care of the hard work, saving you time
It takes a great deal of time to confirm the dates for the charter, organise the route, arrange the program, and sort out provisions. Our expert team of central agents are able to take on all of these responsibilities for you, meaning you’re able to spend your time on more productive endeavours.
Not only this, but we’re also able to help interpret legislation and ensure that your yacht adheres to the specific conditions required to allow it to be legally chartered. Our experts are on-hand to make sure your yacht ticks all of the required boxes.
Let us promote your yacht for you
As a private yacht owner, it can be tricky knowing where to advertise your vessel for charter. It is incredibly expensive for a private owner to match the internationally targeted exposure that an MYBA central agent can offer when it comes to promoting their yacht.
As a member of the MYBA, INT-MARINE can define your program of use, sort any requirements, finalise the charter fee rate, and then place your yacht on YACHTFOLIO. YACHTFOLIO is the most powerful tool in existence for the promotion of charter yachts around the world, exposing your vessel to a wide range of potential clients. On top of this, INT-MARINE will also market your yacht to our own charter client database.
We can manage the transactions for you
Once you have approved a charter, INT-MARINE will then be responsible for taking care of the paperwork. We can manage the following things on your behalf:
Drawing up or verifying a charter contract
Arranging the banking of the charter funds
Work closely with the captain to help organise the charter following the client’s requirements
We then transfer you the payment to an account of your choice
