We are chartering out our boat Serenity this autumn/winter as we don't have enough time to sail her, and we donít want to leave her closed up for 8 months.
The boat, is a Gulfstar 44 Ketch Motor Sailor and is located in the beautiful Abaco, Bahamas. She'll be available from the middle of August 2013 until the end of April 2014
The boat is fully air conditioned, sleeps up to 8 , has a full galley, 2 heads, 2 showers, washing machine, 3 TVís and lots of movies, 2 Kayaks and a RIB with a 20HP Yamaha. Fully insured, and ready to cruise the Abacoís. Really all someone needs to do is show up with a bag of clothes, add some food and drink, and start sailing.
Iím looking for about $1800 a month based on long term rental (minimum 3 months) for someone to charter the boat on a bareboat basis. At this price - which is less than a 1 week charter Ė The price is such a bargain, as we are wanting somebody to look after the boat whilst we are out of the country.
I expect the charterer to treat the boat with the same care they would treat their own boat (ie: donít trash it; other than wear and tear - leave it in the condition you found it; and, donít call me if you need to change a fuel filter at some point)
This would ideally suit a retired couple or anyone who is wanting to spend a few months in the sun and escape the cold winter weather.
If youíre interested, let me know and we can discuss this further.
