Specialty Charters owners often want to know what would make them stand out to a client and become their first choice. The answer is a combination of reviewing the attributes of your yacht & crew and finding the best niche charter market to promote.
Popular with many clients is the ability to scuba dive from the vessel. Yes, all yachts (and brokers) will offer to arrange rendezvous diving from any charter yacht. However, brokers often find that an experienced scuba diver may prefer to dive spur of the moment – perhaps just one or two dives during the week instead of trying to coordinate schedules.
Clients love to take advantage of the local knowledge that experienced crew have about the best dive sites that will take advantage of their itinerary & weather.
To offer this service to clients, a licensed & insured Dive Master or Instructor is needed. With that detail taken care of the varieties of are endless – full on scuba with compressor a& certification, a yacht can included diving for certified divers, or put a maximum of three dives during the week with the clients renting all the gear to further reduce any liability. Whichever way you choose, this is one way to set yourself apart from other yachts.
