Let’s face it, there is “independent” and “independent”

What does it mean and does it really matter? SailChecker’s lead consultant examines the field.

So what do the Yacht Charter Comparison Sites and Brokers do?

Well they fall into three broad categories.

Category 1 – The ‘Paid’ System

First you have companies that take your details, a bit like ours, then search their database. But here’s the thing, the ONLY providers they can choose, are those who pay them a monthly fee. Any provider not prepared to pay for a lead cannot bid. Thus there offers are extremely restricted.

Here at SailChecker, we believe that we should give value for money. So we have a team of expert consultants to help you get the very best from the whole market .

Category 2 – Yacht Broker Search Engines

The second category, the Yacht Broker systems. is an interesting one. These are databases that offer fixed search facilities. Like the drawback for the paid advisors, you are always limited to the yachts on their books.

You know what?

We actually use all the main search systems when searching for the very best deal on your Sailing Charter. So if you come to us, it’s like checking them all!

Category 3 – Local Brokers

Finally, there are individual brokers. We like them. They work hard to advise you and often have great local knowledge. But again the good news is! We are free to reach out to these brokers on your behalf saving you time and effort.

The Summary

There are lots of ways to book your dream sailing holiday or bare boat charter or industry regatta; we deal in just about anything that floats. Our independence means we can offer you as many options as we like from where ever we like. We think that’s a good thing, we hope you do too!

We have already been asked why we consider ourselves independent. Well we do get commission if we recommend a holiday you book, but we believe that we should work hard for that commission. The rate doesn’t vary much from company to company, so we are free to select from any of the available providers.
