Charter firm seeks more yachts

Southwest Florida Yachts is having such a good year it says it needs more yachts for chartering.

"In spite of the iffy economy, our chartering business is good and we actually need more boats," owner/manager Barb Hansen said in a statement.

Hansen said she is putting out the word to yacht owners and want-to-be yacht owners to look into the advantages of putting their vessels, power or sail, into charter service. Southwest Florida Yachts charters vessels from 28 to 43 feet in length.

Hansen said a vessel in charter service helps offset the cost of yacht ownership while keeping the vessel in excellent condition, balancing regular use with regular maintenance. For some, it is a way to help purchase a vessel.

Contact Hansen at (800) 262-7939 for information.
