Cumberland Charters - Serving you direct! 7:09pm, Sat 30 Jan 2010Thank you kindly for agreeing to be on the Cumberland Charter Yachts e-newsletter list. We only deal with our charterers direct, so you will not find our exclusive fleet on any other web site or travel agent brochure. This bold move made 8 years ago means we enjoy having great relationships with the people that come again and again … and we hope to make you part of this group.
Another benefit of dealing direct is the level of integrity. We go out of our way to disclose our product accurately at all times and keep our web site spot on with the latest photos and videos updated every year... so what you see is what you get. We are saddened to hear about charterers elsewhere making a decision based upon brochure photos of vessels, only to turn up and find that the vessel is 8 years old!
We know that you will want to shop around, so be sure to establish the bona fides of the company that you are dealing with. If it is a broker, have they got a phone number and a shop front in case you end up in a dispute? If you can't call or visit them its going to be hard to resolve any trouble. We would much prefer that you talk directly with other bareboat operators in the Whitsundays. Be sure that they are a member of the bareboat industry association, which offers you a base level of industry standards.
