OWNERSHIP PROGRAM

Join our Charter Ownership Program!

Cut your annual costs nearly in half and save thousands in sales tax.

By adding your yacht to our charter fleet, you benefit from paying zero sales tax, getting prime moorage, and receiving 60% of your vessel’s charter fees—allowing you to use that income to cover maintenance, insurance, moorage fees, or financing costs.

Put those days you’re not using your yacht to work! Contact us to learn more.

Charter Ownership Program Benefits

We implement the highest maintenance standards of any charter company.

Add your yacht to our charter fleet and it will be cared for by the most trusted technicians in the business—all year long. In fact, each of our charters must meet a rigorous, 18-page checklist that ensures it’s in near-perfect condition.

Here are a few other benefits to joining our Charter Ownership Program:

  • Don’t pay sales tax (and save thousands of dollars!)
  • Get 60% of your yacht’s charter income
  • Enjoy prime moorage with ideal access to the San Juan Islands and British Columbia
  • Get professional maintenance—our staff will keep your boat in perfect condition, so it’s ready whenever you want it
  • Trusted and experienced charter customers: the only people using your yacht will be qualified charter guests and captains
  • Get a paper and electronic copy of everywhere your yacht goes
  • Enjoy the best service: take full advantage of our team of expert technicians, captains, naturalists, and more. When you add your yacht to our fleet, you become a part of the NW Explorations family!

A Case Study: Cut Your Annual Costs by 20%-50%

For a privately owned 42’ Grand Banks yacht (around $400,000), annual operating and mortgage expenses can cost as much as $53,000 a year! But by adding your yacht to our charter fleet, you can cut that down by 20%-50%, on average. If you purchase your yacht through us, you could also save more than $34,000 in sales tax and nearly $7,000 on the down payment.

Here’s how the numbers break down:
