Dear Luxury Yacht Owner,
I write this letter to warmly welcome you to the Select Yachts fleet! Our services are similar to what might be provided by other Central Agencies/clearing houses, but with substantial advantages. We are a boutique company that works for you and with you. We’ve been a thriving charter marketing, management and yacht sales company for more than a decade with an excellent reputation industry-wide. Wherever you are, we can assist. Our main office is conveniently located in Fort Lauderdale. We have satellite offices in San Diego, St. Maarten and Dominica, and an international network of industry professionals. We are trusted. Select Yachts presently represents over 50 yachts in destinations worldwide.
Select Yachts Charter Marketing division generates your unique brand. We design and maintain yacht listings with professional editorial content and photographs. We build a dedicated page for your yacht on our proprietary site, SelectYachts.com. Our website, engineered as a comprehensive resource, is appreciated by retail clients, owners and crew for providing yachting options, charter information, destinations and trends. We also use social media to promote our fleet including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest.
On Central Yacht Agent and Charter Index we showcase your yacht with extensive information, specs, crew profiles, testimonials, booking calendar and e-brochure. These international websites are the most important and comprehensive search engines used by authorized charter brokers worldwide. Central Yacht Agent claims an average of 210,000 hits per day.

Select Yachts team members attend international Charter Yacht Shows to support our fleet. We request your yacht’s participation in at least one charter yacht show annually. Attendance is the most effective way to display your yacht at its best, providing an opportunity for top brokers to tour your vessel and meet the crew. Select Yachts organizes invitational events on board; broker luncheons, dinners or cocktail parties, photography, videography, and press coverage to make your yacht even more memorable.
Select Yachts charter marketing and all related services comply with industry standard rates and contractual agreements. We maintain an escrow account in a US bank to manage charter funds. Upon assessing your vessel, we will recommend the most competitive pricing and agree with you on rates. Select Yachts does not charge owners unless a charter is booked. We have a nominal initial fee of $150 for the development of marketing materials for your yacht on our website, Central Yacht Agent and Charter Index. As an excellent cost benefit, you may upload these professional marketing materials to your yacht’s broker-friendly website.
Our Yacht Management services provide comprehensive support tailored to your needs. These services include: crew, financial, administration, technical and logistical, safety management and shipyard facilities. We offer our yacht owners expert resources to ensure that your investment is run safely, efficiently and to your maximum financial advantage.
Call us by name. Link to our profiles on our “About Us” page to get to know us and to select the person on our team who can best assist you.
