- Sign up with one of the major Caribbean Clearinghouses and also list yourself with Central Yacht Agent (centralyachtagent.com) in order to be listed on a yacht charter brokers website at some point in the future. This will also allow you to be found by us and other yacht charter brokers when we conduct yacht searches for potential charter clients.
- Attend the USVI Charter Yacht Show for charter brokers to gauge a better understanding of the industry and to integrate into it.
