Chartering Tips for Motor Yachts

Motor Yachts Charter - bareboat or crewed

Crewed, Skippered or Bareboat Motor Yachts Charter? Follow our tips

There are three types of motor yachts charter: bareboat, skippered and crewed.

Bareboat yacht charter

Comes without a crew and is allowed only if you are a licensed skipper. A security deposit is required before you can charter a boat.

Skippered yacht charter

You rent the boat and a skipper who will steer the boat, propose the route and keep you safe, as well as provide you with some "trade secrets" and local knowledge of your sailing destination.

Crewed yacht charter

Offers maximum comfort and relaxation with the crew who navigates, sails and prepares local specialties. You are free to decide on the itinerary.

APA - motor yachts

What is APA?

The motor yachts charter fee generally covers the hire of the power boat and crew. All other expenses are in addition to the charter fee and are covered by the Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA).

The APA usually amounts to 30% of the motor yachts charter fee, sometimes higher if the boat  burns a lot of fuel or if you intend to do more than 4 hours of cruising per day.

The APA covers the cost of fuel, food and drinks, dockage, communications, etc. Any APA that has not been not used will be returned to you at the end of the charter. However, if expenses exceed the APA (excessive cruising and higher fuel costs, requests of rare liquors, etc.) you will be expected to reimburse them upon your leaving the charter.
