Charter World Newsletter April 2007

by Brook Felsenthal on 3 Apr 2007
Welcome to our first newsletter for 2007. February and March are traditionally our busiest booking months and this year we again breaking records for sending more Australians to the world’s very best cruising waters.

Croatia is still extremely popular, however Turkey is closing fast as this perennial favourite attracts both first time and repeat charterers.

Back in 1985 after 2 seasons operating charter fleets in Greece and Turkey, I returned to establish Australia’s first specialist Yacht Charter booking agency.

22 years later Charter World continues to offer a highly specialized service, offering expert knowledge on virtually all holidays afloat except the mass cruise market.

The world of yacht charters have grown enormously over this time, new destinations and routes, larger better equipped vessels both bareboat and crewed.

What has not changed is our absolute dedication to making sure that your time afloat is nothing less than perfect, giving you some of the happiest memories of your life.

We hope you enjoy this update, but please do not hesitate to contact us for unbiased, competitive and informative details on the world of yacht charter.
