One Customer's Story
“Factoring in the cost of maintenance, dock fees and insurance and the advantages of tax write-offs, hassle-free ownership and basically unlimited access, the MarineMax Charter Yacht Ownership Program just made sense. Since purchasing our Aquila 484 named Villa our frequent adventures to BVI have proven to be just that, hassle-free fun.” - Grazi Zazzara
Why This Family Loves Yacht OwnershipOur first chartering experience was with a MarineMax 382. After that, we also chartered a Moorings 484 and a Moorings 394 in the Caribbean and the Bahamas. During these vacations, we started talking about spending an extended period of time on a boat. Since we were both working at that time, owning a boat at a remote location was not a realistic option. So, we started thinking about the yacht chartering programs as a way of spending an extended time on a boat and figuring out if we liked that lifestyle.
