Thank you for your interest in the 2017 season

Welcome to NTC’s follow on season Standby List. Thank you for your indication of interest in chartering with us during the 2017 season. Following is an explanation of the purpose and use of the information requested.

Our Standby List (SBL) will typically have 50 to 70 indications of interest for the upcoming chartering season. Historically, during July and August, 40% to 60% of the requests will overlap from one to as many as five other indications of interest. One of the primary objectives of the SBL is to provide NTC with as much charter start and ending date flexibility, as possible, to work through all of the overlapping requests.

Philosophically, our basic premise is that with 6 to 12 months until charter start dates most folks should have some flexibility as to timing.

The longer the time window, within which your charter request can work, the higher the probability we can fulfill your request. A date specific start date will have about a 10% to 20% chance of working during July thru mid September.

We also ask for charter length flexibility. We ask for your preferred length and workable lengths. Example: Preferred length 8 days, workable 7 to 9. As reservations progress, each boats schedule will reflect variable length gap days between charters. Length flexibility will allow NTC to show more reservation possibilities to each charter request.

We also need to know the type of charter of interest: Bareboat – Skippered Bareboat – Skipper and Chef (only on 54’ boat)

For new customers who are interested in a Bareboat charter we require a "Skipper Resume" reflecting significant experience in skippering a single screw diesel vessel of equal size and weight.

Priority Protocol: Thesis – As confirmed reservations increase shorter requests are easier to make work than longer requests, which quickly become impossible. Our longest charter was 42 days.

Tranche 1 – 14 or more days and flotilla requests. (2 boats needing the same start date)
Tranche 2 – 11 to 13 days
Tranche 3 – 8 to 10 days
Tranche 4 – 6 to 7 days

Some additional costs guidance for first time customers. All numbers are approximate and per charter unless noted otherwise.

Required staples package: 18 items, $1.75/per/person/day

32' 3 gal, 37' 4 gal, 42' 5 gal, 54' 7/8 gal. Average 2015 cost for diesel about $3.25
Insurance fee runs from $20 on a 32' to $50/day on the 54'

We hope the preceding makes sense of the following SBL information request template:
