About Us

Charter a Yacht and Change the World

“What would happen if we built our business for generosity? Instead of assuming that people want to simply maximize self-interest, what if our company catered to our client’s deeper motivations to make the world a better place?”

Jana Sheeder, President, 1-800 Yacht Charters

1-800 Yacht Charters office

So began the mission of 1-800 Yacht Charters.  To innovate beyond the basic rental of yachts and to deliver, “The Superyacht Experience™” to our clients.

Our competitors focus on finding the customer the “right boat.” We choose to take a more holistic approach.

Today’s affluent world travelers are looking for more than just a static vacation on a yacht.

Wired, connected, and driven by sustainability and the greater social good, they want to immerse themselves and participate in unique cultural events. Their chartered yacht must serve as a platform to an eco-friendly adventure – a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

This is where our expertise and sense of purpose bring the experience together. Our team of yacht and destination consultants at 1-800 Yacht Charters focuses entirely on YOU. We take the time to learn what motivates you when you travel, and what you expect from the experience.

The Onboard Experience

Once we understand your needs and motivations, our team will present you with a selection of the newest and largest yachts, operated by safety-certified, professional captains and crews. Your onboard experience will reflect your lifestyle. From Michelin-style menus to spa treatments and watersports, there is no limit to the amenities and luxury accommodations available on our yachts.

The Social Experience

We’ll blend your lifestyle with your commitment to social causes and a sustainable environment. We offer eco-friendly yachting options, focused on green initiatives and reducing your carbon footprint. You’ll have the opportunity to engage in diverse cultural events during your charter – from the spectacular (such as the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival) to the everyday (e.g. farmer’s markets, street fairs, local musical and art festivals, etc.). You can even participate in an hour or two (or a whole day) of local charitable activities, arranged by our team and your yacht crew!

The Superyacht Experience™

By listening to your needs and understanding your motivations, the team at 1-800 Yacht Charters will help you select a yacht and crew that reflects your lifestyle.

Your experience will safeguard our marine environment and enrich the lives of you and the people and cultures you’ll encounter, leaving you with an unforgettable sense of well-being.
