Common Questions Regarding Yacht Charter
How do I choose which yacht to charter?
We will help you find a yacht that suits you. If you book early you have a choice of hundreds of yachts of all types, sail or motor in all sizes in most destinations. There is little or no risk that we will not find you the perfect yacht.
How much will it cost to charter a yacht?
We normally recommend not to charter a yacht with less than two crew. This can cost you anything from €20 000 / week and upwards. The price varies depending on size and type of yacht and the number of crew on board. Call us and we will find a yacht that suits your requirements and budget. A tip for the captain and crew is customary.
What is not included in the charter rate?
The charter rate is the price of hiring a yacht / week. Everything is included except food and beverage, fuel and dockage for those nights when you are not anchoring in a sheltered bay.

The VAT rates vary depending on where you start and end your charter. The rate can be anything from 0% – 25%.

A charter normally starts on a Saturday or Sunday at 12.00 and lasts for one or two weeks but you can also charter for half a day and a year.
