Charter Retail Brokerage: for clients looking for a yacht charter cruise
YPI Retail Charter Brokers guide clients through the process of booking a charter holiday. They are thoroughly familiar with the yachts they propose, inspecting them regularly and producing detailed reports on their construction, maintenance, lay-out, decoration and crew profile. This experience and knowledge not only enables YPI Charter Brokers to advise clients on their own choice of yacht but also to recommend other yachts that meet a client’s specific criteria. Every care is taken to brief clients on contractual issues such as charter terms and any on-board restrictions. The team can also advise on a range of exciting itineraries, as well as details such as gratuities, transfers and insurance.
Charter Marketing: for clients looking for charter income
For Owners, chartering out their yachts can be an efficient way of bolstering their investment as well as keeping the crew motivated.
Charter Marketing requires great amount of expertise and judgment to ensure the yachts are commercially effective and legally sound in their charter operations. The brokers in YPI Charter Marketing operate a rigorous, year-round business regime on behalf of their Owners, designed to maximise the full charter potential of every yacht in their care, whilst respecting the personal requirements and instructions of each owner.
Yachts in the YPI charter fleet are promoted to potential charterers using a dynamic mix of pro-active off- and on-line marketing techniques including websites, e-newsletters, brochures and direct mailing. The group’s sizeable database of clients and industry contacts is also utilised, as are yacht shows around the world - whatever it takes to place the maximum number of quality bookings on all yachts in the YPI charter fleet.
Charter Client of M.Y. Elle, Caribbean

Owner of SEVEN SINS
"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
With this letter we confirm the outstanding and excellent services the charter department of YPI rendered the owners of my Seven Sins. The professionalism of the charter team of YPI cannot be compared to anyone. Even in the most difficult circumstances Jacqueline Leigh is managing solutions in favour of all parties involved.
The charter year 2009 was a very difficult year due to the worldwide economical crisis. Nevertheless Seven Sins was fully booked be it several times last minute. In such environment you feel the help and the spirit of your charter broker. We still do not deplore the decision the company took in 2005 to work together with YPI Charter.
In any case we can advise Yacht owners to have confidence in the way your interests are being kept by the YPI charter department.
Experience and professionalism can not be bought for money but have to be build up during years. YPI can be proud to be the owners of this valuable asset.
Master of ESMERALDA (62 metres , Codeacasa)
"The relationship between Motor Yacht Esmeralda and Yachting Partners International began in the summer of 1999 with a simple handshake when they took over the Central charter Agency for the Yacht.
No one at the time really knew how this would develop and where it would lead to. Now, more than ten years later, and with many, many charter miles having passed under the keel we know that it was correct and a fantastic decision to have made.
With the assistance of all of the YPI team Esmeralda has continued to charter successfully year after year throughout the Mediterranean and Caribbean.
Whether it was a famous film star and his family for the Millennium in St Bart’s, an F1 racing team in Monaco, a well known magazine owner at the Cannes film festival, or simply a wealthy family wishing to cruise in Greece and Turkey, YPI were the source from which these charters originated. Without their skilled and dedicated work Esmeralda would not have been the successful charter yacht that she became.
To achieve this level and quality of charter the relationship between YPI and Esmeralda has always been based on mutual trust and a respect for the individual roles that were necessary to achieve the goals that we desired. It was also important that YPI had a good working relationship with other brokers worldwide who would respect their position in the industry.
We know that if there is a potential charterer who suits our vessel that the charter team will do their utmost to place them on board. We sincerely hope that whatever changes the future might bright that we continue to benefit from each other’s professionalism during these difficult but interesting times."
