A Great Owner Checklist  

Know the basics:
- All prices shown are for the full boat (or cabin or bunk) not per person
- All bookings are sole occupancy
- You will be rated by the Guest for each booking

Answer all questions:
- Before, during and after a booking
- Encourage questions about the boat and what to expect from their stay
- Tell the Guests exactly what they should bring 

Give a great handover:
- If you cannot be there, use your local contacts or a local guardianage service
- Show the Guest everything they need to know
- Leave a printout with details on how to operate everything they need
- Leave clear contact instructions should they have any questions

Simplify the boat:
- Label what you can
- Stow anything that may get in the Guests way
- Close off any areas not for rent
- Invest in any tools or work that could simplify the experience for your Guests

Ask questions before, during and after a booking, for example:
- What is the reason for your trip?
- Who is in your party?
- Do you know the area?
- Do you need any catering or other services provided?
- Have you stayed on a boat before?
- Are you happy to take your shoes off at all times?
- Are you comfortable following instructions to use the amenities?
- Are you happy to use onshore amenities rather than onboard (if relevant)?
