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.
You say you've never been sailing before? You don't know a rope from a sheet, your fore from your aft? We've got the perfect solution!Learn More
It's Smart & Fun to Share! More time for sailing! A fraction of the cost of ownership. We maintain the yacht for you.
Are you are a new yacht owner or want to become one? If so, let us show you how to make your investment work for you without sacrificing your fun!Learn More
Chicago Yacht Share
Captain Norm developed his passion for sailing at the age of 15 at Burnham Harbor's Rainbow Fleet. You might say it was love at first "launch".
Chicago Yatch Share offers captained charters, private and shared. The Navy Pier fireworks is our most popular cruise.
