Brokers are like travel agents. All charter yacht brokers have the same access to the same yachts. The yacht owners pay the broker. There is no additional cost to you. Yachts do not offer a lower price without a broker, period.
After being part of a yacht crew and a yacht manager for over 16 years in the Virgin Islands, other Caribbean islands, and the Bahamas, Michelle Heyns is now a charter yacht broker who understands firsthand why matching yacht with client and crew is imperative to the success of a luxury vacation. Her specialized experience gives her a rare and personal insight into the yachts and crews that make her unique. First and foremost, Michelle’s responsibility is to recommend the highest quality yachts and crews that meet your specific vacation, travel needs, and budget. We are happy that Hannah, with a similar experience, joined our team in February 2023 after being crew for 10 years in the BVI and Bahamas.
Simply put, Epic Yacht Charters allows you to avoid any stress or hassles you might encounter while planning your yacht vacation. Michelle and Hannah navigate on your behalf from the first point of contact until your trip is complete. We have full access to the most up-to-date availability schedules and will only book fully crewed yacht charters we know will give the highest quality vacation. We know the ins and outs of Caribbean and Mediterranean travel and where yachts can meet you to begin and end your charter. Our sound advice will not only expedite your travel time but can also help you to control these costs.
Epic Yacht Charters offers protection of the standard CYBA (Charter Yacht Broker Association) charter agreement and additionally holds funds in a private escrow account until a few days before your charter begins. They strictly adhere to ethics codes and procedures governed by yacht broker groups to protect each client. In sum, ensure your trip is exactly as you planned – no surprises.
