At DIYachting we offer a service that bridges the gap between Guardiennage and full time crew, we have many years experience managing yachts in the 50-80ft size range more recently specialising in CNB yachts and particularly the Bordeaux 60. We know how they work and what they need to keep them in tip top shape and running smoothly. Our management contract offers you the opportunity to sail your yacht alone and enjoy it in private with your friends and family without full time crew getting in your way. We will make sure the boat is where you need it and ready when you need it, giving you the flexibility to cruise where and when you like.
Over the past 15 years we have gained an exceptional reputation for providing first class charters. Our Occasional Charter package means you can charter out your boat without having to employ a full time crew. We can help make the most of the few weeks when your boat isn't being used, we'll market your boat for charter, manage the bookings and put a crew on for the charter. Bookings are taken "in house" by us through DIYachting's charter brokerage DIY Charters so we can offer a seamless service to you and your charter clients from their first enquiry throughout the booking process and the actual cruise.
Designed specifically for owners that manage their boats themselves throughout the summer, WINTERvention is our Winter Intervention package that takes the worry out of leaving your boat on its berth for the winter. We will visit your boat in the autumn and lay her up for the winter making sure all the lose equipment and sails are clean dry and stored away safely. Then we'll visit the yacht 2 or 3 times during the winter to clean the decks, open the hatches and run the engine and generator. In the Spring we return to the boat and put her back in sailing trim, give her a clean and service and make sure she's ready for the season ahead.
