Denison Yacht Sales have announced their recent formation of a Charter Division to add valuable services to the company and compliment its already established Yacht Sales division. This new division will not only provide retail charter bookings but charter management as well.
Dension have been working on developing the new charter division for over six months and to assist in the successfulness of the new specialisation, Ali Kaufman has been recruited. She has worked in the industry for many years and was formerly a stewardess on private and charter yachts, giving her the know-how for creating a successful charter for clients. Speaking of the recruitment of Ali, Alex Clarke of Denison Yacht Sales said “I consider her one of the most trustworthy, honest charter brokers in the industry. Before joining Denision Yacht Sales I used to refer all my charter inquiries and clients to Ali due to the fact I knew they would receive the personal attention they deserved.”
The company will be creating a new interactive section of their website dedicated to Yacht Charters. This will be complete with an interactive map showcasing sample itineraries, allow charter clients to add comments about their experiences or recommend specific locations to those considering a charter for the first time. The global charter fleet will also be accessible to clients can that can search yachts by location, price, and style of vessel.
On top of the new formation of the charter segment, other fundamental changes are that they have announced their partnership with Velocity Jets which will allow the creation of all-inclusive 'Luxury Bundle Packages' which will provide clients with the option to charter a private from anywhere in the world and fly directly to the charter yacht for the lowest possible rate on the market typically beating the cost of most major fractional jet programs. “This will bring the charter experience to another level not yet seen before in the industry” stated Mr Clarke.
