Thank you NYC for helping to make our dreams come true! We ticked a huge item off our Bucket List in July 2019. Stargazer, a beautiful Bavaria 43' was our home for 10 days. These are just a few of the squillions of photos! She was comfortable, clean, and very well appointed and maintained.
A big thank you to Ian and his team. This was our first charter and we could not have been happier with the kind and courteous service. After a warm welcome we were briefed on the sailing area, received charts/books and plenty of tips to help us on our adventure. We were given a very thorough brief aboard Stargazer and our questions were answered professionally and respectfully. We have two teenage boys and this was the perfect family holiday.
We will definitely be chartering again with Nanaimo Yacht Charters as we really felt that they wanted us to have the best experience possible.

My wife and I chartered a Hunter 38, Never for Ever, from the NYC and sailed her at Sunshine Coast up to Princess Louisa inlet in September of 2018. Great experience from every perspective! The company is very well organized and all processes are thought-through. Attention to details and outstanding business ethics is what makes this company to stand out. Initial communication with Beth was clear and responses were quick and to the point. Ian met us at the ferry terminal. Orientation in Ian’s super-organized classroom was in-depth yet very friendly and without a hint of condensation from a very experienced sailor towards less experienced sailors. We were going to pass through Malibu Rapids on our way to Princess Louisa inlet, so Ian made sure that we understand how to calculate tide slack times. He also pointed out major hazards along the way and provided some recommendations to make our experience more enjoyable. All charts, guides, navigational tools were supplied in a special easy to carry bag. We were given an opportunity to use the company car to do our provisioning run.
The boat was in great shape and well-maintained. Ian conducted a boat systems briefing. Docks team helped us to get out and helped us to dock on our way back. Beth scheduled an inspection by divers on the morning of our departure, so we knew that NYC has no outstanding issues with us. We were also asked to provide a very detailed feedback about our experience pertaining to all aspects of our charter. We would highly recommend the NYC to everyone.
This was our first charter with Nanaimo Yacht Charter, and it was by far the best experience we've had on a sailboat. The company is focused on the details, which when added together makes for a fabulous experience from luxurious towels and linens to a nicely stocked galley (with foil, plastic wrap, high-quality coffee, creamer/sugar, variety of pots, dishes, cooking utensils, and more).
Before we left, they provided a stack of charts and books, and when we returned, they'd moved our car in front of the dock so it was easy to unload. We appreciated their personal touch, ensuring we had everything we needed for a memorable week, sailing on the Sunshine Coast.
At one marina, we meet another sailor who'd chartered from Nanaimo Yacht Charter for ten years. They also shared how the company provides first-class service and ensure their vessels are in top-shape for sailing or motoring.
