What is Sailonline?

One may look everywhere....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 small 2nd.tier fleet, where she still is with her new owners!

In addition, I have been practicing worldwide charter yacht brokerage, a high sales volume of new yachts placed in charter fleets, as well as consulting extensively for new charter boat buyers - or owners. I have been doing this for 20 years and for any imaginable issue: decision on the selection of a boat and its equipment, on best locations, on charter companies, on which management program to choose, and, very importantly, on financial strategies, and much, much more. All based on actual data and preliminary full analysis of the boat buyer's real needs, and real utilization of the boat, as well as long term plans.

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, has grown to be a recognized full-fledged service for the yacht charter community.
