Best Yacht Charter – Commitment to Generosity & Clients Defines Company

Posted on

RECOMMENDED BY FORBES

After 30+ years in the business, 1-800 Yacht Charters is still doing the things that earned them the title of  “World’s Best Private Cruise” as recognized by Forbes.com.

 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

So how does the company continue to attract active, well-traveled clients when many of their competitors offer the same yachts?  According to 1-800 Yacht Charters company President, Jana Sheeder, it’s all about “Focus.”

We don’t charter yachts,” says Sheeder, “we deliver The Superyacht Experience™ to our clients.”

Sheeder goes on to explain her company’s philosophy.  “Our mission began with a simple question.  ‘What would happen if we built our business for #generosity?’ Instead of assuming that people want to simply maximize self-interest, our decision to focus on generosity allowed us to cater to our clients’ deeper motivations to make the world a better place.”

“This focus has propelled us to move beyond the basic rental of yachts and to deliver a true Superyacht Experience. While our competitors focus on finding the customer the “right boat,” we choose to take a more holistic approach.”

 

HOW A YACHT CHARTER INQUIRY IS PROCESSED

When a #luxury yacht charter inquiry comes in, Sheeder and her team of consultants interview the potential clients to learn what makes them tick.

“Today’s affluent world travelers are looking for more than just a static vacation on a yacht, says Sheeder.  “They’re wired, connected, and driven by sustainability and the greater social good.” 

Furthermore, Sheeder says the clients hope to immerse themselves and participate in unique cultural events and #voluntourism.  Their chartered yacht serves as a platform to an eco-friendly adventure.  “It’s a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit,” says Sheeder.  She chuckles and adds, “Besides, we often don’t even discuss particular yachts until our second or third conversation.”

SHEEDER CONTINUES

Sheeder admits some clients are puzzled at first.  Most charter brokers immediately try to match the client to a particular yacht and crew.  “At some point, they realize our entire focus is on them,” says Sheeder.  “We share with them our sense of purpose, our commitment to promoting yachts and crews dedicated to protecting our environment, and how we created our business for generosity.  Then, we explain our ‘Best Price Guarantee’ – something no other yacht charter brokerages offer in our industry.”

For Sheeder, focusing on generosity, sustainability, and taking the time to learn what motivates her clients is a recipe for success and fosters a deep sense of fulfillment. “We create a bond where we and the client work together [holding her hands together with fingers entwined] – synergistically – not only to create a special experience, but also to make a difference in the world.”  

Jana Sheeder poses with Guy Harvey representative. Both hold mooring reef buoys that are placed above reefs in the ocean to protect reefs from anchor damage from boats.

TOP 3 Best UAV’s For Luxury Yacht Charter Vessels

Posted on

There’s no escaping them, drones are everywhere.  From sporting events, to backyard parties, and even battlefields, UAV’s are here to stay.

What does UAV stand for?

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

 

THE FUTURE OF UAV’s

These UAV’s evolve quickly.  They may deliver groceries to my front door someday soon, so let’s hope they develop rapidly.  #UAV inventors are amazing.

 

LUXURY YACHT CHARTER

Of course, it doesn’t take long for the latest technology and toys to find their way into the world of #luxury yacht charter.   It only makes sense.

As yacht charter brokers, we constantly tout the advantages of private yacht charter vacations.  The benefit is that they go where others cannot.

The reality is this.  There are places that even a yacht (or the yacht’s tender) can’t take you.  For example, exploring deep in hidden caves along the Amalfi Coast, or uncovering new coves to drop the anchor before nightfall rolls in.

There’s also the simple, fun aspect of small UAV’s. For instance,  flying them from the sundeck and filming your kids as they frolic in the ocean alongside your yacht.

Our charter department sat down this week, and after consulting with several superyacht captains, came up with our 3 favorite drones to use and enjoy on a luxury yacht charter vacation.  So before you turn in your guest preference sheets to your charter broker, make sure to jot down your request for one of these UAV’s to be added to the yacht’s inventory of guest toys!

In no particular order:

OUR TOP THREE UAV’s

GoPro Karma drone


1. GoPro Karma
– Many drones are bulky, but the Karma drone has foldable arms and a long flat body that can tuck in tightly inside a tote bag or backpack.  This makes it easy to take on the tender to the beach, or fly from the yacht’s sundeck. Works with the GoPro Hero 4 or Hero 5 cameras.  The video game-style controller makes this model a breeze to use by first timers.

 

Openrov Trident UAV drone underwater and surrounded by fish and seaweed

2. OpenROV Trident – Thought all drones are for “flying?” Guess again.  Ok…technically this is not a UAV, but it does “fly” along – under the waves.  The Trident by OpenROV is an underwater drone that can cruise at 4 knots and dive as deep as 100 meters.  It comes with a built-in high def (1080 pixel) camera configured for low-light environments.  Considering how much time you spend in the water during a yacht charter vacation, this is a great toy to use to capture sea life and have fun while the gang is swimming and snorkeling.

 

Airdog UAV drone hovering over 2 people kitesurfing on the open ocean

3. Airdog – Just the name alone tells you this a cool, must-have toy.  Forget the controller – the Airdog flies itself, completely unaided from takeoff to landing. The aim of this UAV is to film you while you are moving (e.g. paddling along on a SUP, bouncing along on a towable toy pulled behind the yacht’s tender, or zipping by the yacht’s beach club deck on a waverunner).  The drone films your every move, by tracking a small, waterproof device called the AirLeash, attached to your wrist.  The manufacturer calls it, “the only drone built for action sports.

 

So there you have it – from high above, to deep below, and as fast as you want to go – there’s a perfect UAV drone for your next superyacht experience.

Few vacations compare to the luxury and privacy of a superyacht charter by 1-800 Yacht Charters.  Let our consultants help you select a great destination and the perfect yacht for your friends and family.
