Most sailors dream of owning there own boat some day, but few have the imagination to see it as an investment rather than a mere indulgence. GHSC has openings in its charter fleet for several boats in the 24’ to 45’ foot range. They don’t have to be brand new: late model yachts in good condition are acceptable. If you would like to own your own boat, sail it when you want, have it properly taken care of and receive income, this may be the perfect program for you. Call GHSC for more details.
