Chicago Yacht Share is the Windy City's Smart Sailing Solution

The concept of yacht share (yacht timeshare), also known as bare-boat charter, is not new, and is fast becoming the smartest way to sail. It provides a cost effective way to spend your summers on a pristine yacht with no maintenance or upkeep worries.

Chicago Yacht Share provides the opportunity to sail a newer yacht in a way that really makes perfect sense! The reason is that yachts are expensive to own and operate, and the sailing season here in Chicago is so short, (five months at best).

So let us worry about finding dock space, boat insurance, bottom painting in spring and winterizing procedures in the fall.

So give us a call at 773-257-3559 or use the Contact Us form on this site.
