Free Publicity for Charter Boats

Hop aboard one of the Bay Area’s many crewed charter boats and leave the pre-sail prep and post-sail cleanup to the professional crew.

Because we’re wordsmiths by profession, it’s only natural that we love words. But not all words. In fact, there are a few that we really hate, such as "comprehensive." Why? Because every time we attempt to put out a comprehensive list of something — such as the so-called comprehensive list of all Bay Area charter boats which appears in every April edition of Latitude 38 — we manage to leave out one or two newcomers.

With her 90-ft length, the schooner Bay Lady is one of the largest crewed charter boats on the Bay. Operating out of South Beach Harbor, she carries up to 80 passengers.

We don’t want that to happen again this year, so if you are new to the Bay Area’s charter fleet — and are running a legit operation — we’d love to hear from you.

As you’ll see in the charter listings that reside on our website year-round, we poll all the sailing schools and list every sailboat available for bareboat rentals, plus all crewed sailboats which carry at least six passangers. If you’d like your crewed boat listed we’ll need the following info:

  • boat name
  • brief description of boat and its history
  • passenger capacity
  • where berthed
  • available for what type of charters
  • phone and website
The sweet-sailing C&C 48 Incognito is one of many ‘six-pack’, as in six-passenger, crewed boats in the Bay Area fleet.

Running these listings in April — timed with the Strictly Sail Pacific boat show (April 12-14) — is our way of giving the fleet a free shot of publicity. But we only do it once a year, so waste no time in contacting us
