Step 1: Charter Reservations Estimate
Upon deciding that you want a charter catamaran in service in Tortola, we will provide you a proven & tested projection based on the model you have chosen for charter. Some models generate higher income than others. Some Owner layouts will outsell charter layouts or reverse. Depending on current availability of the model in Tortola, the amount of models already available determines your charter price.
Upon receiving the charter projection we will estimate your charter price and amount of weeks you could earn. An example of how it shows is below: The example below is taken from a Lagoon 450 3 Cabin owner's layout.
Step 2: Charter Fees
The British Virgin Islands is so popular that many first timers who charter become repeat charterers. We have a very loyal customer base. Our guests come back year after year as our charter guests feel comfortable with our customer service, product and charter service. As a reward to our guests, a common repeat charter discount is traditional of 10%.
Our management fee is 23%. Therefore this amount is deducted from the Gross Annual Income.
We promote Owners to advertise their charter catamaran to friends and family to ensure you can earn referral fees which provide extra income to your Net income.
See example below:
Step 3: Fixed Charter Expenses
Every month the owner will be billed for dockage, water and electricity. This is a fixed cost as we have reserved a permanent slip for you located at Hodges Creek Marina.
The below example is for Lagoon 450 3 Cabin owners layout.
Step 4: Charter Related Expenses
Every charter that is operated out of the base will have charter related expenses.
Please view the example of fees (on next page) onboard a Lagoon 450 3 Cabin owner's version
Step 5: Annual Expenses
Every year during the month of September, our Tortola base does not except charter departures. We do close the base for a month for summer maintenance. We haul out every catamaran and ensure we do the bottom paint and antifouling and ensure your catamaran is spotless.
We have also estimated what your parts & maintenance fees will actually be per year as well as insurance.
Please view an example of these fees below
Step 6: What is your NET revenue after all the management commissions, fixed expenses, charter related expenses and annual fees are deducted from the potential charter revenue?
In the Caribbean when on a revenue risk sharing program the rule of thumb is always to strive for 10% return on your investment. We of course strive higher than this. It really depends on the choice of layout, model, year that you choose for charter.
Upon deducting all costs from charter revenue, the example below shows what NET return a Lagoon 450 owner's layout will achieve in charter:
