YachtWorld.com recently launched a single, global marketplace for the yacht charter industry and individual yacht charterer.
For the charterer, the site, www.yachtworldcharters.com, offers a choice of nearly 5,000 vessels in more than 300 destinations worldwide, together with stories and reviews on boats and destinations. The new site also offers online pricing, availability and reservations together with the ability to receive special offers the moment they become available.
"The sheer choice of boats and destinations, on a global basis, are what sets YachtWorld charters apart," said Ian Atkins, vice president and general manager of YachtWorld.com and Boats.com, in a statement.
Benefits for the charter industry include visitor traffic, the ability to manage inventory on a day-to-day basis, to display detailed descriptions of each vessel with multiple photographs, provide real-time availability and information about special offers, late availability and cruising areas.
"The Internet is a necessary and powerful route to market for charter providers and www.yachtworldcharters.com will deliver not only a global audience, but also essential functionality to allow them to manage their businesses more effectively day-to-day. This includes the option to receive charter enquiries directly or have YachtWorld manage the whole booking process for them," said Robert Corden, commercial director for YachtWorld.com and Boats.com International, in a statement.
YachtWorld.com is a division of Dominion Enterprises, the parent company of Soundings Trade Only.
