Charter Report for 2012 and 2013 from OceanStyle by BURGESS


OceanStyle by BURGESSreports a strong charter market for 2012 with nine new yachts welcomed to its fleet. 

Mediterranean destinations continued to be most popular for charters in 2012 with the company.  Croatia and Montenegro showed increased signs of popularity, largely due to the tantalising mix of culture, sophistication and seclusion they offer but also because of a relatively stable VAT policy when compared to changing VAT policies for charters starting in Italian territorial waters, which were introduced over the summer period.
“We expect the strong charter market for 2012 to continue in to 2013, as more people opt to charter rather than buy in the current economic climate”, comments OceanStyle by BURGESSDirector Richard Lambert. “Interestingly, during the year we saw a shift in the manner that clients made a decision with regards to their charter and found that many were leaving their decision making process much closer to the date of embarkation than witnessed in previous years.”
