Can I select the menu?

You can most definitely advise us of your food and beverage preferences for your charter. Part of our planning procedure involves you completing a detailed questionnaire to advise of your food and beverage preferences, and if there are any special dietary or medical requirements for those in your party. This allows your Crew to fully understand your requirements and to provide you the most relevant service.  All of our charter yachts’ chefs are experienced and pride themselves on the high standard of cuisine they present their guests.

Gratuities: do I tip?

charter-cassiopeia-07While it is at your discretion, it is customary to tip the Captain and crew at the conclusion of a charter for excellent care and service.  As a guide, a gratuity of 5-15% of the base charter fee is considered fair, while exceptional service and attention to detail can warrant a tip of 20% or more, but always at your discretion.

charter-Moonlight08The decision to charter a yacht is a personal choice or preference depending on your budget, how many people and your experience in sailing, among other factors.

Year build may also be a significant factor. The newer models are more spacious, better designed with newer engines and performance capabilities.

A rule to remember is, to choose the right yacht, you will pay more for a newer model than an older one, but you will also have a more pleasurable sailing trip. Depending on your budget and party size, crewed motor yachts and motor sailors are an excellent choice for cruising in extreme comfort and luxury. Contact us for more detailed information on all our yachts.

Charter costs range widely depending on location, season, number of guests, distances travelled, days spent in ports, and the level of luxury provided. To calculate Costs and Expenses check the quotation: rates will be quoted either as "all-inclusive" or "plus expenses".

All-Inclusive

Generally speaking, all inclusive means just that. The charter rate includes the use of the yacht, captain and crew, all meals and beverages aboard (standard ship's bar), plus use of recreational equipment. Scuba diving may have an extra fee, as well as special wine/liquor requests.

Plus Expenses

A guideline often used for estimating expenses is to factor in an additional 25 to 35% of the base charter rate. Taxes, if applicable, are not included in the base rate. When you charter on a plus-expenses basis, the captain will give you discreet updates on such items as fuel expenses, communications charges, and liquor/wine consumption. You will be provided with a detailed account at the end of your charter.

charter-aqua-02AM Charter can arrange a charter for you next week, or for next year, however, if you would like to secure a particular vessel or if your holiday dates are not flexible, then it is best that you book as early as possible, to secure the availability for your exact dates and a possibile early booking discount.

During the high season, daily charters are usually confirmed "last minute" - some 5-10 days before the requested date: priority is given to the weekly charters.

Activities largely depend on the cruising area. The pace and length of charter is set by you. You can snorkel or dive, walk the beaches, enjoy bustling night life, take a walk or foot paths to explore ancient ruins or just get away from the hustle of everyday life and relax on the sun-deck and take everything in. The possibilities are endless. Professional crew members have years of experience catering to discerning yacht owners. The crew is at your disposal and ready to serve you as soon as you arrive on board.

charter-lagoon620moose-09Once you have discussed with us the various types of yacht, locations and terms under which the yachts operate, we will be ready to prepare you several yachts and you will choose the one that suits best your specific needs.

We will prepare and send you a Charter Agreement detailing the yacht, your chosen dates, location, cruising area and cost. Booking procedure implies that upon signing this Agreement the first payment, normally 50%, is due to the account shown on the Agreement.

We will send you a detailed questionnaire requesting information on your travel arrangements, guest list, likes and dislikes, special requirements, etc (Your preferences).

This information will be discussed with you in some detail to ensure we gather as much information as possible. This is then sent to the Captain so that he can pre-book any berths, order the right provisions and arrange the chef and crew to prepare that special birthday treat or other such celebration. We call this the "Preference Form".

Payment the balance is normally due one month prior to the charter commencing. At the same time we will ask you to send us the funds to cover the advance provisioning allowance (APA) plus any taxes, delivery/redelivery fees and security deposit. The APA is immediately sent to the Captain, in cash, in order that the yacht can purchase provisions in advance ready for your arrival. All costs incurred by the yacht which are accountable to the charterer will be deducted during the cruise and full accounts produced at the end. The Captain will, at the end of the charter, return any unused funds. Occasionally the APA is not sufficient and the Captain will keep you advised if further funds are required.

What is the captain’s responsibility?

charter-miredo-08All the Crews aboard charter yachts are professionally certificated to ensure that you have the ultimate charter experience with safety.  Crews are also trained to provide a high level of service and hospitality on board for everything from fine dining to recreation and using the water toys safely. The Captain will, when necessary, consult with you and always try to accede to your wishes; however he is ultimately responsible for the safety of the vessel and for all those on board, and he has the final call when circumstances demand it.

What should I bring with me?

Every charter-blush-01charter yacht is fully equipped for charter. Apart from provisioning, you only need to bring your personal possessions/medications and some recommended items.

Yacht charter is generally an informal and relaxed kind of holiday and dressing in Greece is casual. For clothing bring bathing suits, cotton shorts, T-shirts, an extra sweater and long cotton pants for co

 

ol nights and a light foul-weather gear for the occasional rainy days. Of course, you might also like to have the option for more formal attire for elegant dining and eveningwear. Rubber-sole shoes for a firm grip on slippery decks, to prevent foot injury and to protect the boat's surface is always recommended. Soft luggage instead of bulky space-consuming suitcases is a must since on board storage may be limited.

We have a very large and very diverse selection of luxury charter yachts this allows us to present you with the best charter solution, matched to your specific personal requirements.

It’s important for us to know the size and make-up of your party – including ages, interests and accommodation requirements.  With this information we are better informed to offer the vessel or vessels most suited to your needs.

There are four primary styles of vessels available for charter, and these can range in size from around 18 metres (60ft) in overall length through to more than 60 metres (200ft).

SAILING YACHTS: Sailing yachts bring a great spirit of romance and adventure to a luxury charter. They offer the ultimate level in cruising comfort along with an extra dimension: a stimulating and refreshing embrace of the elements while voyaging between destinations. You are at one with nature while relaxing and watching your crew sail the yacht.

MOTOR YACHTS:  Motor yachts are generally faster and mostly bring a more sophisticated level of elegance to your luxury charter.  They can also usually accommodate more guests for a given length of yacht. However since you need to include the cost of fuel in your budget, you need to consider the rate of fuel consumption.

CATAMARANS: Power and sail catamarans are the emerging style of vessels in the world of luxury charter yachts. It could be argued quite easily that they bring the best of both worlds to your charter: they are fast, stable, remarkably spacious, and offer the best in appointments.

MOTOR SAILORS and GULETS:  The Turkish gulet is a traditionally designed wooden motor sailor. She has the heritage of those ancient boats which sailed across the Aegean and Mediterranean seas for thousands of years. Today they are being built with much more precision and carry high tech marine equipment; they have air-conditioning, superb chefs, and crew that provide caring hotel services. Gulets have become the best authentic way to explore the Turkish and Croatian cultures and coastlines, and provide superb holiday choices for families and groups of friends
