Our Story

At Boatsters Black, we believe there is a better way to charter a luxury yacht; a more valuable and innovative way that enables you to be matched with the perfect yacht and charter experience quicker than you can say ‘dream holiday’.

We’ve been in the business of marrying up yachting enthusiasts with exceptional yachts since 2015. What’s more, our international team is made up of forward-thinking professionals, all of which have firsthand experience sailing, managing and chartering large yachts. Our insiders’ knowledge means we know exactly which kind of questions to ask in order to find a yacht and itinerary that will suit your wishes to a tee.

Seamless transfers and committed after-sales service are further proof that we will take care of your trip’s every single detail from start to finish.
