Captain's Corner...

When you Submit Your Charter Review here, you're enhancing Charter Sailor online research and helping our brothers and sisters afloat avoid disastrous charter experiences that put us all at risk. For most of us, when we advance some or all of the charter cost to the Charter Pros we also put at risk travel costs, vacation and decompression time, and the safety and security of our friends and family.

With your help, we're building a Charter Value Scorecard on every active Charter Yacht and Charter Pro (Brokers, Companies and Sailing Schools, Charter Base Marinas, Captains, Sailing Instructors and Charter Chefs). Unfortunately, it's become necessary to independently track the performance of Charter Yachts and Pros.

Each Charter Review comes from A Charter Sailor (like us) and is verified as authentic by the YCA staff with final approval by me,

Stephen R. Austin
Charter Sailor
&
YCA Founder


Unlike blogs, forums, company testamonials and consumer review sites influenced by the industry (sharks watching the baitshop!), if a YCA Charter Review cannot be verified it's never posted on the site. The YCA staff are experts in sniffing out 'fake reviews' and use technology and tenacity to protect our Charter Sailor knowledgebase.

By&For Charter Sailors - YCA is a critical part of your pre-charter research and post-charter responsibility to pass the word about your experience. When you combine the YCA tools with sound advice, contracts, insurance, direct references (and a strong plan-B!)
we've created an elegant solution to assuring your charter expectations are set and met, offering peace of mind before and during your charter.

Submit your Charter Review online or via phone, skype or email. Your online and offline privacy are assured, we ask for and jealously guard a minimum of personal information to verify the authenticity of your Charter Review. If you prefer, we'll create a pseudo (ghost) account over the phone so your personal information is 'never' placed online. We lothe spam and other unsolicited contact and respect your choice to 'opt-in' or 'opt-out' of any YCA communications (email, newsletter, etc).

You can't blame the weather. While we fully expect Charter Pros to properly set expectations we prevent negative impact to their Charter Scorecard from circumstances which are out of their control. This is done by focusing your Charter Rating on Charter Yacht Condition (cleanliness, condition, operation and safety) and Charter Pro Service Quality (reliability, responsiveness, assurance and empathy).


I hope you find YCA to be a POWERFUL RESOURCE that COMPELS CHARTER PROS to deliver on their promises - or else!

Best regards,

Stephen R. Austin

YCA Founder

"...You are AWESOME!!  Got the package today!  Thanks very much!   I did not realize that you took the time to call Ed Hamilton....thats amazing. Thank you!! It would be great if they would respond...but oh well.  I posted a thread on TTOL encouraging members to visit the sight and post reviews as well.  These people have chartered numerous times.  I think it is a great service to the sailing community. Thank you!

YCA Quick Poll

Are your Charter Expectations set by the Charter web site or Charter sales brochure?

YES, these are my charter expectations and I will hold them to it.
Somewhat, it gives me an idea of what to expect
NO, the charter contract sets the minimum expectation
NO Way, past performance sets my expectation and a promise to Rate My Experience online gets results

Why Charter Reviews?


YCA Charter Reviews are designed to capture the perceptions of Charter Yacht Condition and Charter Pro Service Quality from *EACH* Guest aboard the Charter; 1 Charter, 5 Guests, 5 different perceptions of the charter experience. First time charter? Your perception is the most sought after of all!


Your Charter Review captures your perception of the most important parts of the charter including the Charter Yacht Condition (cleanliness, condition, operation & safety) and Charter Pro Service Quality (reliability, responsiveness, assurance and empathy) including Brokers, Companies, Sailing Schools, Marinas, Captains, Sailing Instructors and Chefs.


YCA independently tracks the performance of each part of the Charter. Before you book, Know your Charter Yacht's history (maintainence issues, safety problems, etc) regardless, of where she goes or who manages her. Did your Charter Company just rename their business or boat name (like Chandler Yacht Charters in Greece)? What's the new name and why did they change it - you really need to know this. See the performance of your Sailing Instructor no matter what Sailing School or Yacht he/she teaches on. This information is priceless!


Sadly, I've read dozens of cruising/sailing site forum posts like this one...


"...Prior to booking our trip, I searched very hard to find non-biased reviews of this yacht and business, but could find only the vendor controlled testimonials on the company site and the 'reviews' on broker�s sites selling their trips (all the reviews were glowing, of course.) I�m sure I�m not the first person to have this sort of experience on this boat, so this review is for the next person like me. If the last unhappy guy or gal had posted this, it would have saved me a lot of aggravation, disappointment, and money." - Rich (Colorado)


Now it's up to you, if you've chartered before, Rate Your Experience! Good, bad or indifferent, we want to hear from each member of the Charter Party (14yrs+). YCA enables you to Search for Charter Yachts and Pros and Compare their performance based on reviews from Sailors Like You!


When researching a Sailing School select reviews to compare submitted by Review Period (past 1-3 years), Service Quality (1-poor to 5-excellent) and Affiliation (American Sailing Association (ASA), Royal Yachting Association (RYA), etc).


When researching Charter Yachts select reviews to compare submitted by Yacht Type (power, sail, mono-hull, catamaran), Charter Type (crewed, bareboat), Manufacturer (Beneteau, Jenneau, Bayliner, etc), length, Number of Cabins and Number of Heads. For all your searches, compare reviews submitted by gender, age, country and experience level.


YCA allows you to search across all brokers and companies for the yacht you're looking for, don't settle on any Charter Captain or Chef by availability, pick the one you want and make them a condition of your booking. YCA makes Yacht Charter "A La Carte"!


We hope you find YCA to be a FREE and powerful resource for Charter Sailors and a compelling reason for Charter Pros to deliver on their promises!


Your YCA Crew!
