Friday 23 September 2011Yacht Charter Guide hit a landmark in the early hours of this morning when the number of charter companies in the Guide passed the 6,666 mark. To put this into perspective that is one company for every day from now until Christmas 2029.
When we started the Guide a decade ago I had guessed that there would be around 4,000 charter companies worldwide but the number keeps growing.
There is something mildly disturbing about reaching the number of ten beasts because the middle of our phone number reads 666 and a lot of our Internet services are provided by Demon. We try to be an ethical company so here's hoping we can reach 7,500 charter companies instead. Not only would that be a more saintly number but it would illustrate just how important an industry chartering is.
