Interesting Autumn Itineraries

“It’s hard to believe, but August is almost over… and that means it’s time for charter yachts to begin moving from their summer to their winter locations. I know this because in the past few days, I’ve received two e-mails from management companies promoting “repositioning” itineraries in places that charter yachts don’t typically cruise. The first seasonal opportunity is from Churchill Yacht Partners, which has the 90-foot motoryacht Trilogy preparing to cruise down the Hudson River from Upstate New York to Manhattan–just in time for the colorful autumn leaf-peeping season. The second opportunity is from Northrop & Johnson, which has the 88-foot motoryacht Bellflower heading to the Chesapeake Bay and the Carolinas. Golfers, in particular, tend to love that rarely available itinerary. You can ask any reputable charter broker about these and other repositioning charters, which sometimes can be negotiated in terms of price because the yacht’s owner has to move his boat with or without charter guests onboard. As more charter yachts prepare to move at summer’s end, more of these kinds of interesting opportunities will pop up.”
