Yacht Charter Consultants
Safety, impeccable cleanliness, style and reliability are the key attributes of the Yachts we represent. When one of our Yacht Charter Consultants recommends a Charter Yacht to you, be assured that we would only recommend the finest Yachts with the best Crews, the ones we would place Heads of State, Captains of Industry, and our own families aboard! Our 30 year reputation for the highest ratings in the industry reflect our commitment to the Highest Ethical Standards.
We take our responsibility very seriously at Seven Seas Yacht Charters. We are not only members, but leaders in some of the world’s primary Yacht Charter professional organizations such as MYBA, FYBA and CYBA International, where one of our Yacht Charter Consultants serves on the board.
We also are proud of our A-plus rating for 30 consecutive years with the Better Business Bureau.
When you choose us to assist with your Yacht Charter Vacation Investment, you can be assured it will be handled properly.
Quite simply, our mission is to “Exceed Expectations”. Seven Seas Yacht Charters represents EVERY available yacht in the world. Most chartering companies only represent the specific boats in their restrictive fleets. We work for YOU only and will scour every Yacht in the world to fit your exact needs and desires, including vessels not publicly offered for charter. This translates to guaranteed perfection for this Charter and those in the years to follow.
