Charter Conditions for Crewed Yachts
After choosing your cruising area, select a specific yacht in your chosen class.
When you would rather spend time at anchor, a planned motor yacht will get you to your chosen destinations as fast as possible. A sailing yacht moves smoothly and almost silently through the water, with an exhilarating response to the wind. A motor sailer gives you the best of both worlds, with a more spacious interior, more open-air deck area and larger engines for cruising under power, than the sailing yachts.
When you are ready to confirm the charter, a Charter Agreement (HYBA or MYBA) will be sent to you with a request for a deposit to secure the booking. The Charter Agreement defines the terms and conditions, obligations and rights of each party. Before your charter you will be sent a detailed questionnaire about your preferences in food and drink and any special dietary requirements.

Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA)
A.P.A. is obligatory for all luxury yachts and is usually ranged from 25 % – 35% of the charter price. The Client will be advised by the captain, at intervals, as to the disbursement of the A.P.A and will, if the balance remaining becomes insufficient, in light of current expenditure, pay to the captain, a sufficient sum to maintain an adequate credit balance.
Prior to disembarkation at the end of the charter period, the captain shall present to the Client a detailed account of expenditures with as many supporting receipts as possible, and the Client will pay to the captain the balance of the expenses or the captain will repay to the Client any balance overpaid, as the case may be.
Payment for special requirements or equipment and/or shore transport and/or excursions and/or all other expenses not customarily considered part of the Yacht’s costs may be required to be paid to the captain on board in addition to the charter fee and/or A.P.A.
