Typically a vessel owner uses a boat for 2 weeks a year, new trends in boat ownership tend towards shared ownership or Syndication and Charter is becoming more and more popular with all demographics. Millenials are used to transport and accommodation on-demand and expect walk on walk off service. Vessel ownership for this customer is not high on the list of priorities early in life.

The older customer has quite often owned a boat, may have one and is travelling for a holiday on a vessel and may have extensive boating experience. The choices for this customer are vast as they may choose a bareboat option, that is the skipper yourself plan to sail or manage a power vessel themselves. They can also have a skipper, crew and a fully catered option.

Charter is now available for all customers and levels of experience in every remote location of the Asia Pacific. Areas such as Komodo, Flores, Raja Ampat and Papua New Guinea are best accessed by boat.
