Florida Yacht Group’s charter operations team carefully steps through a very thorough checklist of preparations prior to departure and check-in items upon the yacht’s return. You can review the checklist by clicking the following : FYG PRE/POST CHARTER CHECKLIST.
The FYG team also evaluates each charter customer based on their sailing experience resume and interactions with the customer in preparation for departure. Occasionally, a brief “sea trial” aboard may be needed to ensure that the charter customer is comfortable with the yacht. If the charter customer is not confident of handling the boat, then FYG refers a captain to assist the customer.
Beyond this, each bare boat charterer is required to file a float plan explaining his/her intended travel plans during the charter. As a further precaution, each charter yacht is equipped with a GPS locator system to ensure our operations are always aware of its precise location.
