The Islander Feature – March 2018

Guess what? It’s time for some new press! We were so thrilled to be approached by The Islander magazine to be featured in their March issue. Please click below for an update on what we’re up to, why we think there is more of a need than ever for changes to the charter norm, and some snapshots of our favourite destinations. We are so grateful to Simon Relph, Managing Editor at the magazine for his time!

“So what is OSY trying to achieve in the industry?

Our mission statement is: OceanScape Yachts is the world’s first vacation club dedicated to bringing the unparalleled experience of yachting to travellers worldwide. This unique community combines concierge travel planning with traveller camaraderie to make planning your next holiday completely worry free.

So we’re basically a platform that unites brokers and owners with a whole new list of potential clients. We are focused on getting the word out about the amazing vacations that a family or group of friends can enjoy on a yacht, and show them that the cost can be comparable to other luxury travel options. We make it easier for potential new people attempting to enter the industry for the first time(and maybe even get turned off before really entering) to get the information they need. We are helping those people who don’t have time or energy to properly research and plan a trip – saving them time and aggravation. Someone can come to us, tell us a bit about their needs – how many guests, location and time of year, then we are the ones who go out, get all the info (whether that is through one of our trusted yacht partners, or a further referral from them), then present them the options. We lay out plainly all hidden costs and fees, the charter agreement, how to get to and from their meeting location to get onboard, etc. We are trying to make the entire charter process as seamless and painless as possible – especially for those who are completely new to this industry.”

The Islander has been in publication since 1997 and remains the only English monthly magazine dedicated to yachting matters within the Western Med and beyond.

Thanks again for this opportunity Simon!
