Excitement and Generosity Drive Private Yacht Charter Maven into 2016

Posted on

Happy New Year 1800yachtcharters logo
REBRANDED FOR GENEROSITY

About a year ago, we rebranded our business with a new focus, driven by our motto, “What if we built our business for Generosity?”

 

PERSONAL OBLIGATION AND SOCIAL GOOD

As leaders in arranging Mediterranean yacht charter vacations, along with private yacht holidays throughout Greece and the Caribbean, we recognized an opportunity, and an obligation, to grow our business for the  greater social good.

 

CHARTER A YACHT – CHANGE THE WORLD

Realizing you can rent a yacht from a number of qualified charter brokers around the world, we came up with a simple reason to book your yacht with us:   “Charter a Yacht and Change the World.”

Wow – what a year 2015 turned out to be!

 

HEAVILY EMBRACED

We are so proud of and honored by our clients – both repeat charterers and new customers.  They embraced our commitment to sustainability and generosity.

With enthusiasm, they chose our reusable water bottles in lieu of disposable plastic bottles (to help reduce plastic pollution in our oceans). When we told them a portion of their charter cost would be donated to charity in their name, and that we wanted their input in selecting the charity, they were quick to direct multiple donations to their favorite causes.

MANY CHARITIES BENEFITED

Thanks to our clients, among MANY other things, we were able to

  • PROTECT REEFS.  Install multiple mooring buoys in Biscayne Bay.  This is the hub of the Florida yacht charter marketplace. The buoys protect coral reefs from damage from boat anchors. Additionally, they educate the public about the plight of coral reefs and historical underwater wrecks.
  • BUY MEDICAL EQUIPMENT.  Purchase a medical autoclave to sterilize surgical instruments for an international group that provides low-cost spay and neutering services for dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals, enabling the medical team to alter many more pets and rescued animals each day.
  • SPAY AND NEUTER.  Pay for multiple spay/neuter surgeries for stray animals
  • DO ANIMAL RESCUE.  Pay for the rescue, transport, and housing of multiple animals (saving lives)
  • PAMPER WOUNDED VETERANS.  Defray the cost of multiple private luxury Virgin Islands yacht charter vacations. These occur on a 155 foot superyacht.  They support veteran wounded soldiers and their spouses.
  • PROTECT MANATEES.  Manatee (sea cow, dugong) conservation
  • SUPPORT POLLINATORS.   Repopulate bees, butterflies, and pollinators near natural hammocks and waterways
  • EDUCATE YOUTH.  Support classrooms who are teaching youth to protect the oceans and to use sustainable goods

 

Looking back, 2015 was a fantastic year.  The above items and so many others are just so exciting for us. Helping others is our passion.

 

WHAT LIES AHEAD

We enter 2016 with a number of new yachts and new destinations to offer our clients.  We have the brand new expedition yacht LEGEND, available for experiencing Greenland and Norway’s Fjords; and  the world’s largest sailing yacht for charter made of wood, the yacht LAMIMA, available in the exotic islands of Thailand and Burma.

 

WE ARE ENERGIZED

Our team is energized to share these yachts and destinations with our clients.  Each charter vacation gives our clients a chance to reconnect with family and friends.  Additionally, to embrace diverse cultures.  Finally, to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH US

Together, we will make a difference.   The Superyacht Experience™ by 1-800 Yacht Charters awaits you.  When you choose to live a generous life, you start to change…and so does the world around you!!!

Happy New Year,
