All of our charters come with a selection of Captain included in the price. We provide our charterers a list of qualified Captains available for hire included in the price upon request. Federal regulations regarding charter laws state that the Charterer (Renter) must have the option to hire from an approved list of qualified Captains, or may request to provide their own Crew / Operator. We require a minimum of an OUPV Merchant Mariner Credential to qualify as an Operator and any Captain not on our approved list must undergo 4 hours of unpaid training before being approved and the charter is responsible for all operational costs associated with the 4 hours of training, including wages of examiner. Most charterers defer their selection of Captain and default to the preferred Captain of the vessel.
