What is Sailonline?
There is no unbiased in-depth information resource for the yacht charter environment. What is provided by charter companies cannot be objective, for obvious reasons. In 2000 (time flies!!), I decided I had to do something about it.
My name is Michel Benarrosh. Since 1995, I have owned three charter yachts managed by different charter companies, including Moorings. I was also one of the original founders of the "Moorings Owners Group", an independent and very large association of charter yacht owners. For 10 years, I was the Commodore of the association. When my last boat came out of the fleet she was in, I placed her in a 2nd.tier fleet, where she still is with her new owners!
In addition, I have been practicing charter yacht brokerage, sales of new yachts placed in charter fleets, as well as consulting extensively for new charter boat buyers - or owners. I have beein doing this for a number of years and for any imaginable issue: decision on choice of boat and equipment, on best location, on charter company and on which management program, and much more. All based on actual data and full analysis of the boat buyer's real utilization of the boat.
As such, I have accumulated a huge volume of practical data useful to charterers, as well as existing and potential boat owners. The vast majority of what I know and disclose to charter boat buyers and owners is never published by the media - except here, of course, or divulged by charter companies.
After so many years, Sailonline.com has grown to be a recognized full-fledgedÂ service for the yacht charter community.Â
