“Hatteras Island is an obvious location for yacht charter vacations, and has already established a culture of vacation rental. Its really a no-brainer” says Jay Phillips. With more than 30 years experience in the industry, Phillips has learned that the yacht charter business can be a rewarding challenge. We’ve located an ideal boat (as pictured above), but it won’t be available for long. Simply using the boat as a dockside 4 bedroom / 4 bathroom rental house is likely to do quite well. Hatteras Island presents quite a growing opportunity for east coast yacht owners.
One thing leads to another and then in the blink of an eye, 30 years later, one has a lifetime of experience in his/her field and desires to share with others hard lessons learned. I started working in boat yards in 1981, and later in 1990 as a small daysail charter captain and it became my passion. It was a passion that lead years of racing and teaching sailboat racing in Annapolis; years of professional private and charter yacht work in Tortola; owning a Sail Loft and eventually my own boat building company. The services listed are things that I offer to others as a consultant, project manager, or to do in my own shop or on your yacht wherever it may live. I love to mix it up with some work time on the water and some in the shop or drawing board. If you have a need for some expertise with a boat project, feel free to call me to discuss.
