While many of our customers buy boats to use as private owners, we help other customers place their boats into a variety of charter programs that are specifically tailored to each owner's individual objectives.

North & South Sound Yachting has developed a program (called "Follow The Sun") that allows owners to use and/or charter their catamaran in New England during the summer season and have the boat moved to the Caribbean into a full-time charter fleet there for the winter season.

BVI Sound Yachting works with a limited number of companies in the Caribbean that offer owners more flexibility, greater income potential and much better maintenance programs (critical in maintaining the value of a yacht) than the main charter fleets.

Many people are interested in gaining greater experience of sailing a catamaran before making a final purchase decision - they want to try before they buy.

If you charter one of the catamarans that Sound Yachting has helped set up in charter in either New England or the Caribbean and subsequently buy a new catamaran from us within 12 months of the charter we will discount the purchase price of the new catamaran by the cost of the charter, thus allowing you to "try before you buy" FOR FREE.
