Professional Charter Association (PCA) celebrates 21 years of activity in true traditional style.

Twenty members of the Professional Charter Association (PCA)  joined together to toast the milestone of their first 21 years of activity onboard the classic English motor yacht, Seafin, in the Solent on England’s South Coast
 Lunch and a special 21st birthday cake with candles and champagne helped combine elegance and class with the luxuries and amenities of modern cruising and chartering, Seafin provided the perfect platform for members to reminisce and also to look forward.
The PCA was originally set up to allow charter operators to share information on MCA codes and today members enjoy supplier discounts and solid relationships with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

Members strive to provide a professional service to their clients, across a vast range of sail and power vessels, of all sizes, within the UK and with some members also operating in the Mediterranean.

Now Seafin is in the ownership of Warwick Bergin. In over 50 years afloat, the charter yacht has seen her fair share of sights. She’s been all around the UK and Ireland and through the Baltic. Many times, in rough weather and smooth, she’s sailed across the Bay of Biscay and into the warm azure waters of the Med.

She’s cruised from the rock of Gibraltar to the Balearics, and from St Tropez to San Remo. Her elegant lines have been admired in Paris and in London. The love affair with her current owners has lasted nearly 15 years and looks solid for a few more.

Seafin is certified annually by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency as a Class 5 and 6 passenger and a code 3 vessel and carries out a Search and Rescue (SAR) exercise with the Coastguard each year. She carries 35 guests and up to 10 crew.

  1. Re Seafin. I notice that some of the Seafin copy has come from an old source. Could you let me know from where from so that I can update it a bit. We have owned Seafin for 27 years now. She has been afloat since 1961 so that means she has been bobbing about for more than 50 years. She is class 5 and 6 and code 3 and can carry 35 passengers plus crew. Otherwise a very, very nice article. Regards
