Sailboat Exchange - Exchanging Vs Chartering Sailboats
Being sailors like you, we are always looking for new adventures and places to sail. Our 37' Alberg "Sojourn" is located on Lake Superior and therefore we have all winter to dream of sunny days and gentle breezes. After looking at several charter companies in various locations, we quickly realized that it was far too expensive to own and maintain our boat and pay to charter another.
We searched for other options through various magazines and web sites and came across a site called www.sailboatexchange.com. The beauty of sailboat exchange is that it allows you to avoid the high cost of chartering simply by exchanging the use of your own boat.
We contacted the owner of the site and found that they were looking for someone that would take it over. Thanks to encouragement from sailor friends, we decided to do just that. We felt it would benefit not only ourselves, but also owners like you who have a similar desire to explore the world. Check it out!
