Colorado Springs, Colorado (PressExposure) March 01, 2012 -- YachtCharterAdvisor.com launches online directory/manifest of charter yachts (power and sail), the companies, schools, captains, instructors, chefs, brokers and marinas associated with them. The online directory addresses the most key information gaps currently plaguing the Yacht Charter Industry and limiting the confidence of charter sailors. The 'Charter Manifest' is continually being expanded and updated by Worldwide Charter Sailor community.
The Manifest fulfils current information gaps such as:
Providing assurances of value; based on unbiased reports (ratings & reviews) of Charter Yacht Conditions & Charter Professionals Service Quality.
Creating a single location to collect ratings, rankings & reviews supplemented with real stories, photos and videos of worldwide Charter Yachts and supporting Professionals.
Engage the sailing community through a one-stop, searchable knowledge base with details outlining vitals, extras, location, track record, and conditions of Charter Yachts and supporting Professionals.
The Charter Manifest is the result of a four year project by Yacht Charter Advisors (YCA) offering a portal into measuring four specific attributes that provide a consistent and reliable way to evaluate Charter Yachts and supporting professionals worldwide.
YCA's Service Quality measurement is empirically derived (SERVQUAL) and comparatively measures the world Charter Industry, from the customers perception, on a single, easy to interpret, scale of performance. The Charter Manifest presents this information to the charter sailing community from a global and regional perspective.
Yacht Charter Advisor is headquartered in Aurora, Colorado. The company began operations in 2008. The core business provides a Charter Value Assurance Index for use by Charter Sailors, Charter Yacht Owners and Charter Professionals by monitoring worldwide charter sailor satisfaction of yacht condition and service quality.
