How much does it cost to charter a yacht?

There are many things to consider and first time charterers can be left confused, that's why we've created a comprehensive guide to yacht charter prices (with a checklist).

charter cost explained banner

The good news: It’s easy to grasp the basics of yacht charter pricing. And with one of our experts in your corner, we can help you more accurately estimate the cost of your next once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

The cost of a yacht charter is dependent on a number of factors, including the type of yacht, the charter destination, local taxes, and the base cost. (If the yacht has a celebrity owner, well that too, can add to the cost.)

Therefore, yacht charters have a wide range of base prices. That’s why charters can cost from $10,000 per week on smaller sailing yachts and catamarans, up to $150,000+ per week on the most luxurious motor superyachts.

What else can you expect to pay? This overview – a part of our planning resource, the Charter Advice Guide – offers an in-depth look at charter yacht costs.

Yacht Charter Price Structure: “All-Inclusive” vs “Plus Expenses”

In the world of yachting, two types of crewed yacht charters are available to you – “All-Inclusive” and “Plus Expenses” charter experiences. What do these terms mean exactly? Here’s a quick look:

  • All-Inclusive Yacht Charters – Some charters (mainly catamaran and monohull charters in the Virgin Islands) offer all-inclusive rates. That means rates are based on the number of guests, and they include all food and drink, water sports, and fuel costs. Dockage and taxes, though, are usually charged separately.
  • Plus Expenses Charters – Rates for larger motor yachts do not include running expenses, which must be paid separately. For these luxury charters, the base price is for the yacht only. Additional expenses, i.e. food, bar, fuel, dockage, port taxes, and other expenses, are charged separately. Most frequently, the running expenses are paid by an Advance Provisioning Allowance, or APA, which is typically 35% of the base price; this is an amount that’s paid prior to the charter.

Our chart below offers a quick overview of what’s included in both of these types of charters.

Average Yacht Charter Cost: Base Prices

What can you expect to pay for a catamaran, a sailing vessel, or motored yacht? Here’s a quick overview of the average cost to rent a yacht (not including extra expenses) for the most common types available:

Factors that Affect Yacht Charter Prices

Since charter yachts are privately owned, prices are set by the owner. This can explain, in part, the wide range of differences in price between boats of similar lengths. Yet, several other factors can significantly impact price, including:

  • The Yacht – The year the boat was built, the builder, previous owners, and the boat’s selection of water toys can also increase the cost of a yacht. Boats can also develop a reputation, i.e. the largest or most luxurious, or having a famous builder or previous owner. Reputation can also affect pricing.
  • Season – Prices typically increase in the high season – i.e. high summer in the Mediterranean or winter in the Caribbean – and decrease in low seasons.
  • Destination – Your charter destination also plays a role in charter cost. For example, prices increase in areas without large charter fleets (i.e. the Galapagos), whereas Bahamas yacht charters,   BVI charters , or Mediterranean yacht charter are priced more competitively.

Additional Costs Considerations on Yacht Charter

In addition to the cost associated with running the yacht and provisioning, there are a number of other costs that must be considered. These are the most significant:

Advanced Provisioning Allowance

The APA on Plus Expenses charters equals roughly 35% of the yacht’s base price. This is a fee that’s collected prior to charter, and it’s similar to an expense account the captain can access during the charter. At the end of the charter, you will receive a detailed accounting of your APA account, plus any unused APA funds in cash.

In the case of overages, you may be required to replenish the APA account during the charter. This can be done with cash, although many choose to set up accounts with their charter brokers , which can be accessed if requested by the captain.

Taxes and Value Added Tax (VAT)

Most boats – whether all-inclusive or Plus Expenses – will not include local taxes or a Value Added Tax into their charter rate. The charterer will be responsible for paying those taxes. Taxes range significantly by destination; here’s a look at some of yachting’s most popular destinations:

  • The Bahamas – Tax: 4% plus 10% VAT
  • BVI – Tax: between $6 and $16 per person per day, depending on the flag of the boat
  • Croatia – VAT: 13%
  • Florida – Tax: 6% for Broward County, 7% for Miami-Dade County
  • France – VAT: 20%, however, 10% can be applied when an itinerary includes International Waters
  • Greece – VAT: 12%
  • Italy – VAT: 22%, however 6.6% (over 24m) and 8.8% (under 24m) can be applied when an itinerary includes International Waters
  • Montenegro – NO VAT
  • New England – NO TAX
  • Spain – VAT: 21%
  • Turkey – NO VAT

Charterers can purchase cancellation and curtailment insurance – which is similar to traveler’s insurance. This insurance can help cover costs if a charterer must cancel or shorten the charter. Charter brokers can help you weigh insurance options, and often offer several different options.

Crew Gratuity

While crew gratuity is certainly not mandatory, it is recommended, particularly if you were truly impressed with your charter experience. In general, crew gratuity is roughly 15-20% of the base charter rate, which is handed to the captain at the conclusion of your charter.

Delivery Fees

While these fees do not apply on most charters, you may be asked to pay delivery costs if you are not chartering in the yacht’s normal cruising ground. In most cases, you will only be required to cover the fuel for the trip.

Additional Charter Cost FAQs

What are standard private charter yacht prices?

There are a number of factors that affect charter yacht pricing. However, on average, a week-long private yacht charter costs anywhere from $10,000 on luxurious sailing yachts and catamarans, and up to $150,000 for superyachts.

What affects charter yacht prices?

There are several things that influence how much your yacht charter will cost. The type of vessel, charter destination, length of trip, base cost, time of year, and local taxes all make a difference.

How much does it cost for a crewed vessel?

Charter yacht prices do increase when hiring a crew along with the boat. At Worldwide Boat, we offer two types of crewed charter experiences: all-inclusive and plus expenses. An all-inclusive charter yacht includes accommodation for all guests, food and drink, water sport activities, and fuel costs – dockage fees and taxes are charged separately. A plus expenses experience accounts for just the yacht’s base price. Things like food, drinks, fuel, dockages, taxes, and other expenses are charged separately and are usually estimated to be about 35% of the base price.

What’s included in all-inclusive boat charters?

At Worldwide Boat, your all-inclusive charter experience includes a diligent and friendly crew, water toys, food, drinks, fuel, water and electric services, and occasionally diving experiences.

What are some additional charter boat costs to consider?

After finding a base price you’re comfortable with and evaluating your package, you’ll also want to consider delivery fees, crew gratuity, insurance fees, taxes, and Advanced Provisioning Allowance rates. If you are responsible for these fees, your crew will handle the necessary transactions on your behalf.

What does it cost to rent a 100- foot yacht charter?

This depends on what type of vessel you’re looking at and how long you’ll need it for. The average weekly cost of a 100-foot sailing yacht is between $50,000-100,000. A weekly 80-foot catamaran charter runs around $40,000-100,000, and a week-long 100-foot motor yacht rental is anywhere between $50,000-80,000.

Does the price to rent a yacht change depending on what type of boat it is?

Yes. Worldwide Boat offers sailing yachts, catamarans, and motor yachts. All of these vessels have different capabilities, but there are other factors that determine the price beyond what type of boat you choose. The year the boat was built, owner, availability of water toys, onboard amenities, and the ship’s reputation can all change how much the ship is priced at.

When is the high season for yacht charters?

The price of a yacht fluctuates depending on the season. A Mediterranean yacht charter cost rises in the summer and drops in the winter, whereas Caribbean boat charter prices are high during the winter and lower in the summer months.

How does my destination affect charter yacht cost?

The more remote an area is, the more expensive it will be to charter a yacht there. That’s because prices go up in areas that have fewer boats. If you were to travel somewhere like the Galapagos, which isn’t a typical yacht destination, you’d pay more than you would if you were traveling to the Caribbean.

How much do I tip the crew when reviewing my yacht charter expenses?

It’s not required that you tip your crew, but it is recommended and appreciated. If you had an enjoyable experience it’s considered polite to tip your crew anywhere from 15-20% at the end of your charter.

How Much Does It Cost to Go on a Superyacht?

Posted June 27, 2022 in Charter by Janine St.Denis

Yacht charters have become popular in recent years because they offer all the same amenities of renting a gorgeous luxury villa without the crowds and impersonal vibe of cruise travel. You have ownership of the yacht for the duration of your trip, which adds a layer of freedom that appeals to adventure seekers around the world. A yacht charter is the ultimate luxury experience. 

Depending on the size, amenities, and condition of the yacht, superyachts can cost anywhere from $4,000 /week to over $2 million /week plus expenses.

In this article, we’ll detail the differences between a yacht and a superyacht and explore how much it is to go on a superyacht . 

What’s the Difference Between Yachts and Superyachts?

Yachts come in several classifications, which means you have a variety to choose from.

What Is a Yacht?

A yacht is a recreational sea vessel used for entertainment, like cruising, water sports, or fishing . At a minimum, a yacht includes sleeping quarters, a kitchen, and a bathroom. There is no set standard definition, but the term applies to a ship with amenities that can accommodate overnight use.

What Is a Superyacht?

Superyachts are the gold standard in luxury yachting. They can accommodate six passengers at a minimum, but often host more than 10 passengers and a robust crew. Many superyachts have a variety of deluxe amenities like: 

  • Swimming pools
  • Tennis courts
  • Outdoor cinemas
  • Helicopter pads 

What Is Included in the Price of a Superyacht Charter ?

Superyacht charter prices are typically quoted at weekly rates. This will account for about 60–70% of the total cost. For a superyacht, expect to pay $100,000 or more per week. 

Charter prices include: 

  • Yacht rental
  • All equipment and amenities 
  • Crew salary
  • Additional services

The more extravagant your vessel, the more you can expect to pay. 

What Is Not Included in the Price of a Yacht Charter?

Yacht charters are generally “all-inclusive,” but this doesn’t include things like tips and taxes. Here is a list of a few things that are not included when you rent a superyacht: 

  • Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA). APA covers provisions while onboard, including any specific requests you may have and several variable costs (including port fees, excursions, etc.). It’s a standard system managed by your captain. The crew uses this allowance to purchase products of your choosing and for taxis, communication fees, port fees, and other expenses that are difficult to budget for ahead of time.
  • Taxes and VAT rates. Taxes are not included in superyacht charter prices. You will also be subject to VAT rates when chartering a yacht in Europe. 
  • Crew gratuity. Your superyacht will come with an expansive and experienced crew. You’ll want to factor their gratuity into your overall costs. They’re at your service nearly 24/7, so it’s customary to leave them a tip at the end of your charter.

Yacht Charter Costs To Consider

Here are a few other factors that may influence how much your yacht charter is :

  • The size of the yacht. You’ll pay a weekly rate of $100,000 or more for a superyacht charter rental. If you want something smaller, the price varies between $20,000 and $80,000. For a megayacht rental (much bigger than a superyacht), you can expect to pay upwards of a million dollars. The larger the yacht, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonal influences. Depending on the destination, certain times of year are more expensive than others. For example, the Caribbean costs more during the winter, whereas in the Mediterranean, the summer months are pricier. 
  • Exotic destinations. Exotic destinations cost more. The Galápagos Archipelago is a great example. Since yacht fleets are limited there, prices are higher. The Mediterranean is easier to access and thus less expensive.

Navigating Luxury: Your Guide to Superyacht Charter


The world of superyacht chartering is a realm of opulence, luxury, and unparalleled experiences. For those who seek the epitome of lavish travel, super yachts and mega yachts offer an tempting allure. This article delves into the key factors that impact clients when renting these floating palaces, including some of the largest and most expensive yachts globally. We’ll navigate through the tradeoffs involved in balancing factors like size, amenities, and destinations, while also exploring the challenges associated with different approaches. Additionally, we’ll highlight the importance of considering the environmental impact when making decisions about what superyacht to charter.

Charter superyachts

Size Matters – Mega Yacht vs. Superyacht Charter

When it comes to super yacht charter, the first decision often revolves around size. Superyachts and Mega yachts are the giants of the maritime world, but they come with different dimensions and experiences.

Mega Yacht Charter

Mega yachts are massive vessels that exceed 100 meters (328 feet) in length. They boast impressive size and can accommodate numerous guests and crew members. The larger size allows for greater stability, offering a smoother cruising experience even in rough waters. Mega yachts often feature multiple decks, swimming pools, helipads, and even mini-submarines.

Superyacht Charter

Superyachts are slightly smaller, typically ranging from 24 to 100 meters (79 to 328 feet) in length. They offer a more intimate experience compared to mega yachts, making them ideal for smaller groups or families. Superyachts still provide opulent amenities but on a slightly smaller scale, with spacious cabins, lounges, and water toys.

Tradeoff : The choice between mega yachts and superyachts boils down to personal preference and the number of guests. While mega yachts offer unmatched extravagance and space, superyachts provide a cozier atmosphere.

The Price of Luxury

Luxury yacht charters are synonymous with lavishness, but the cost can vary significantly depending on several factors.

Factors Influencing the Price of a Superyacht Charter

  • Yacht Size : Larger yachts typically come with higher charter costs due to increased maintenance and crew requirements.
  • Amenities : Yachts equipped with extravagant amenities like cinema rooms, spas, and gourmet kitchens command a premium price.
  • Destination : Some destinations have higher operational costs, impacting the overall charter price.
  • Season : Chartering during peak seasons in popular cruising regions can be substantially more expensive.
  • Additional Expenses : Fuel, crew gratuities, and provisioning are additional costs that should be factored in.

Tradeoff : Clients must strike a balance between their budget and desired level of luxury. Opting for a slightly smaller yacht or considering offseason charters can help manage costs.

Charting Your Course – Destinations and Itineraries

Selecting the right destination and itinerary is a crucial aspect of super yacht chartering. The world is a vast playground, offering a multitude of experiences.

Popular Superyacht Charter Destinations

  • Mediterranean : The Mediterranean is a perennial favorite, offering a blend of historic ports, picturesque coastlines, and vibrant nightlife.
  • Caribbean : Crystal-clear waters, idyllic islands, and a laid-back atmosphere make the Caribbean a top choice.
  • South Pacific : The South Pacific beckons with its remote islands, coral reefs, and untouched natural beauty.
  • Alaska : Adventurous souls seek the raw beauty of Alaska’s fjords, glaciers, and abundant wildlife.

Tradeoff : The choice of destination often entails tradeoffs between culture, climate, and activities. Clients must consider their preferences, whether it’s exploring ancient ruins, lounging on pristine beaches, or embarking on adrenaline-pumping adventures.

Superyacht Charter Crew and Service Excellence

A hallmark of luxury yacht charters is the exceptional crew and service provided to clients. The quality of the crew can significantly impact the overall experience.

The Crew’s Role in Luxury Yacht Charter

  • Captain : The captain is responsible for navigation, safety, and ensuring the smooth running of the vessel.
  • Chef : A skilled chef can elevate the culinary experience onboard, tailoring menus to guest preferences.
  • Steward(ess) : Stewards and stewardesses attend to guests’ needs, ensuring their comfort and enjoyment.
  • Deck Crew : Deckhands and water sports instructors facilitate activities like snorkeling, diving, and watersports.

Tradeoff : Investing in a highly experienced and skilled crew enhances the luxury quotient but can also increase charter costs. Balancing crew quality with budget constraints is a key consideration.

Environmental Consciousness in Chartering

In an era of increasing environmental awareness, chartering a luxury yacht also comes with ethical responsibilities.

Environmental Impact of Luxury Superyacht Charter

  • Fuel Consumption : Large yachts can consume substantial amounts of fuel, contributing to carbon emissions.
  • Marine Conservation : Charterers must be mindful of fragile marine ecosystems and protected areas.
  • Waste Management : Proper disposal of waste at sea is crucial to minimize environmental harm.

Eco-Friendly Charter Options : Some charter companies offer eco-friendly yachts with hybrid propulsion systems, advanced wastewater treatment, and sustainable practices.

Tradeoff : Balancing the desire for opulence with eco-consciousness requires clients to seek out environmentally responsible charter options and make conscientious choices while on board.

The Largest and Most Expensive Yachts

For those with no budget constraints, the world of luxury yacht charter unveils a roster of the largest and most expensive vessels.

Top Mega Yachts and Superyachts for Charter

  • Azzam : Currently the largest yacht in the world, Azzam measures a staggering 180 meters (590 feet) and offers unmatched opulence.
  • Eclipse : Owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, Eclipse boasts features like a missile defense system and two helipads.
  • Rising Sun : With a length of 138 meters (452 feet), Rising Sun is a popular choice among celebrities and offers a range of luxurious amenities.

Tradeoff : Chartering one of these behemoths comes with a price tag that matches their grandeur. However, it’s an experience that’s truly in a league of its own.

Chartering for Special Occasions

Luxury yacht charters are often chosen for special occasions, and they can be customized accordingly.

Special Occasions on Luxury Yachts

  • Weddings : Yacht weddings in picturesque locations provide a romantic backdrop.
  • Anniversaries : Celebrate milestones with a private charter and custom-designed experiences.
  • Corporate Retreats : Yacht charters offer a unique setting for team-building and corporate events.

Tradeoff : While these experiences are unparalleled, clients must carefully plan and budget for the specific demands of their special occasion.

Booking Your Dream Superyacht Charter

Booking a luxury yacht charter is a meticulous process that involves several steps.

Steps to Booking a Luxury Yacht Charter

  • Define Your Preferences : Determine your budget, group size, destination, and must-have amenities.
  • Research Charter Companies : Investigate reputable charter companies and their fleets.
  • Itinerary Planning : Work with charter brokers to plan your itinerary, considering the desired activities and sights.
  • Negotiate Terms : Review contracts, negotiate pricing, and confirm all details with the charter company.

Tradeoff : The tradeoff here is the time and effort invested in the booking process. However, meticulous planning ensures a smooth and memorable experience.

Luxury yacht charters offer a unique and extravagant way to explore the world’s oceans while enjoying unparalleled comfort and service. Clients must carefully weigh factors like yacht size, budget, destination, crew quality, and environmental impact to make the best choice for their dream charter. Whether it’s a mega yacht or a superyacht, an eco-conscious charter or a lavish celebration, the world of luxury yacht chartering caters to diverse tastes and desires.

Navigating Your Luxury Journey for Superyacht Charter

Embarking on a luxury yacht charter is a journey unlike any other. It’s a blend of opulence, adventure, and ethical considerations, and finding the right balance is key. As you set sail on your charter, remember that the world’s oceans are not just a playground; they are also a precious resource that deserves respect and protection. So, charter wisely, explore responsibly, and savor every moment of your unforgettable voyage aboard a luxury yacht.

Prices for renting a luxury yacht

The cost of renting a luxury yacht can vary significantly based on a variety of factors, including the size of the yacht, its amenities, the destination, and the time of year. Below are some approximate price ranges for renting the types of yachts mentioned.

Mega Yachts

  • Small to Medium Mega Yachts (100-150 feet): These can range from approximately $50,000 to $200,000 per week.
  • Large Mega Yachts (over 150 feet): Chartering one of the largest mega yachts can cost anywhere from $200,000 to several million dollars per week, depending on the yacht’s size, amenities, and location.


  • Small to Medium Superyachts (80-120 feet): Weekly charter prices for these can start at around $20,000 and go up to $100,000 or more.
  • Larger Superyachts (120-200 feet): Chartering a larger superyacht can range from approximately $100,000 to $500,000 or more per week.

It’s important to note that these are rough estimates, and the actual cost of chartering a yacht can vary widely based on specific yacht features, the duration of the charter, additional expenses (such as fuel, crew gratuities, and provisioning), and the chosen destination. Additionally, during peak seasons in popular cruising regions, prices tend to be at their highest.

Charter rates often include the yacht itself, crew salaries, standard amenities, and insurance. However, clients should be prepared for additional expenses, such as fuel, food and beverages, port fees, and crew gratuities, which can add a significant amount to the overall cost.

To get precise pricing for a particular yacht and itinerary, it’s advisable to consult with reputable yacht charter brokers or companies, who can provide detailed quotes tailored to your specific preferences and needs.

How to Charter a Superyacht

Navigating the world of yacht charters can be tricky; our guide breaks down what you need to know.

By Kim Ayling

legend yacht on the water

As the world inches closer to normality, privacy and space are creeping higher on the priority list, making a superyacht charter more appealing than ever. However, the world of private yacht chartering can be as elusive as it is luxurious, making hiring your own boat a tricky process – especially for first-timers.

From the pros and cons of enlisting the help of a broker and choosing the perfect boat, to understanding when to book and planning your itinerary – not to mention the all-important question of how much it costs to charter a luxury yacht – there are plenty of hurdles before you even reach the water. To help you and your guests enjoy a worry-free vacation out on the ocean, Elite Traveler has compiled a comprehensive guide to chartering a superyacht.

What is a yacht charter?

If you’re new to the world of yacht chartering, even the language can be alienating. A yacht charter is the process of exclusively hiring a yacht for yourself and your guests.

While most charters are for leisure, be it with friends or family, some individuals and companies choose to hire a yacht for business-related reasons, with the undivided service and uncompromised privacy making boats an excellent place to hold meetings and conferences.

The length of a yacht charter depends entirely on your needs; some choose to book for a long weekend or even just a matter of hours if hosting a meeting or conference, whereas others opt for an extended vacation and may charter a yacht for several weeks or even months. Regardless of duration or motive, privately hiring a yacht is always considered a charter.

Using a yacht charter broker

Technically, using a broker to charter a yacht is at your discretion; however, if it is your first time chartering, using a broker comes highly recommended – especially when hiring a larger-than-life superyacht. Yacht brokers will draw upon a large network of connections and extensive industry knowledge to help find the best vessel for your unique requirements.

Once you’ve had an initial consultation, a broker will typically offer a selection of yachts that suit your needs and help you make a final decision. From here, the yacht broker will handle the entire booking process, from securing the initial boat booking to planning each element of your onboard itinerary, including docking points. A reputable yacht charter broker will also be available to contact throughout the duration of your time on board, giving you and your guests complete peace of mind.

Occasionally, first-time charters mistakenly think that booking directly will shave some digits off the total cost, but it actually falls on the yacht owner/charter company to pay the broker fees – not the charterer. In fact, you will often find that a broker will rely on their insider connections to secure the best deal for their clients.

When it comes to choosing a yacht broker you have plenty to choose from, but names like Burgess , Fraser and Northrop & Jonson dominate the superyacht realm. Some people opt for a freelance yacht charter broker, but we’d suggest only heading down this route if you have a pre-existing relationship or they come highly recommended by someone you trust. You should also ensure that any broker you work with is a member of the MYBA Worldwide Yachting Association.

How to choose a yacht

As we mentioned, your yacht broker will do the hard work when it comes to choosing a yacht, calling upon their wide boat knowledge to present a selection of yachts to you. However, to be able to do this properly they will need a solid understanding of your preferences, requirements and budget beforehand.

The key things you should consider when chartering a superyacht are: the number of guests you want to bring on board (remember the legal limit for most yachts is 12 guests, including personal staff); whether or not the yacht needs to be child-friendly, the amount of indoor/outdoor space you’d like on board; where you’d like to travel, as many yachts are only available in certain parts of the world; and the on board amenities you’d like – for example, is an indoor swimming pool a priority or does a dancefloor sound more appealing?

The type of yachting vacation you’re seeking is also important when choosing a boat: for intrepid travelers with a taste for adventure, a sturdier explorer yacht such as Silver Yachts’ Bold or Ragnar by Royal Niestern Sand would be more suitable than a classic yacht, designed for luxury and comfort.

However, if it is your first time chartering a superyacht, don’t feel concerned about going in clueless – your yacht broker will be able to guide you through every step of choosing a vessel.

Bareboat vs skippered superyacht charter

When chartering a luxury yacht, you will sometimes be given the choice between a ‘bareboat’ or ‘skippered’ charter – bareboat being a crewless charter and skippered including a full complement of staff. However, you will find that when verging into superyacht territory, all charters are skippered for both your safety and comfort.

Again, you can always discuss the on-board crew specifications with your broker, and this is a good opportunity to outline what you’d like from your yachting experience. For example, if you have a taste for adventure, ensure that there is a watersports instructor within the crew. Looking for a more relaxing on-board experience? Ask your broker to look into securing a masseuse for your journey.

When to book a superyacht charter

When to begin booking a yacht charter is an important question. Leading charter company Northrop & Johnson recommends reaching out to a broker no later than 10 months in advance if you want to travel during peak times (July and August in the summer season, Christmas and New Year during winter), and three to six months ahead for quieter periods. However, with popular yachts booking up as much as a year in advance, it’s advisable to reach out to a broker at least 12 months ahead of time if you have specific boat or date requirements.

When booking in advance, remember that local events will heavily impact availability. For example, if you’re planning a European tour, take note of events such as the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix when both vessels and docking spaces will be in high demand.

How much does it cost to charter a superyacht?

It’s no secret that yacht charters are expensive, with many first-timers unprepared for the hidden costs. It’s generally accepted that the biggest price indicator of a yacht charter is boat size – so if you’re heading into superyacht territory, expect an impressive fee.

However, other factors will impact the cost of chartering a superyacht , such as crew reputation, ship design and the age of the vessel. For example, Fraser Yachts offer a week on the 298.5-ft Moonlight II which was first built in 2005 from €645,000 (approximately $768,200), but prices for the 278-ft Solandge, which was built in 2013 and refitted in 2019, begin at €1m ($1.2m) per week.

Although some charter costs are inclusive, meaning expenses such as captain and crew, fuel, food and drink are included, you’ll find that a ‘plus expenses’ charter is more common. With such charters, only the crew and ship are included in the price, an ‘Advance Provisioning Allowance’ (APA) is used to cover the necessary extras and is usually around 30% of the weekly charter fee. What the APA doesn’t cover however is crew gratuity which although given at your discretion, is expected, with the going rate around 15-20%.

To avoid tarnishing your vacation with unexpected fees and charges, ask your broker for a full price breakdown beforehand, including any potential docking fees and additional taxes.

A first timer's guide to superyacht charters

Which yacht, where to go and how much to tip the crew? Industry insiders give Risa Merl the lowdown for first time yacht charter clients entering the superyacht world.

Make the most of your broker

You should think of a charter broker as the conduit between yourself and a fabulous holiday.

“Your broker is your central point of contact from the moment you start planning your charter,” explains Annemarie Gathercole, charter director at YPI . “They will ask you about your plans and your guests in order to find the ideal yacht, and they will also put together an unforgettable itinerary that will be enjoyed by everyone on board. Once your charter starts, while your captain can answer any questions you might have, your broker will remain on hand whenever you need them.”

On your side: The broker works for you. “Your broker will work on your behalf to negotiate the best charter rate and guide you through the contractual process,” says Denison Yachting ’s Eva Hiebert. “The charter broker represents the charterer and is there to protect their interests.”

In the know: “A charter broker travels to destinations, inspects the yachts and is familiar with the level of service that the captain and crew offer. This allows the broker  to offer their first-hand findings to the client,” explains Westport Yacht Charters ’ Kim Vickery. This tried and tested formula means the most suitable yacht will be recommended to you. “A senior charter broker will know the yacht’s crew and will have had the chance to sample the chef’s dishes. This means they will be able to make personal recommendations rather than just relying on promotional material,” adds Fraser’s Pierrik Devic.

Charter virgin: First charter? No problem – your charter broker will recommend the best holiday possible. “If someone who has never chartered before asks me where to go, I would first want to know what they like doing,” says Fraser’s Lucy Ritchie. “If they want beaches , start with island-hopping on a 30- to 35-metre in Greece . For experienced charterers, I would recommend Thailand or the Galápagos .”

Plan the details in advance

It might feel as though you are being high maintenance, but providing exact details ahead of your charter will help your broker and crew craft the ideal experience. “A broker gets to know his client and his wishes by gathering as much information as possible at the beginning, not later on,” says Camper & Nicholsons ’ Pierre Hurel. “The more detail you provide, the better a broker can cater to your exact requirements,” adds YPI’s Gathercole.

On form: Your broker will provide you with a preference sheet before you board that will cover every aspect of your charter. “It is essential to complete an advance information sheet noting culinary preferences or any special dietary requirements, beverage preferences, newspapers, flowers or other special requests,” say Ocean Independence brokers. “Details on any medical issues, allergies and special occasions can also be given."

Choose the right yacht

Of course, one of the most important factors in an enjoyable charter is picking the yacht that best fits your preferences.

Family first: Travelling with your brood ? Make sure you choose a yacht with ample space and family-friendly crew.  “I always find out from clients the exact age of their kids and what kind of family holiday they are after. I then glean as much information as possible about what everyone likes to do on board,” says Edmiston’s Matthew Gant. “You want to make sure the crew are completely prepared as they can make or break a family charter.”

Home from home: “When a new client comes on board, I always sit down with them and ask them what their home looks like,” explains Worth Avenue Yachts ’ Graham Sullivan. “I believe that a yacht should be a continuation of your home, at sea, and should enable you to sit back and relax just as if you were in your own living room.”

Set the pace: A good broker will also ascertain if you have a need for speed or prefer to enjoy life at a slower pace. “It would be wrong to offer a fast yacht with high fuel consumption to a client who doesn’t care about speed but will be shocked when they get the fuel bill,” says Katya Grzeszczak of IYC . “Clients who like ample volume and comfort should be offered a full-displacement yacht, whereas those who care about a yacht being sexy, sleek and fast will probably find a full-displacement yacht slow and bulky.”

The yacht that you charter will also influence how much you are able to fit into your itinerary. “A displacement yacht will take five hours to cruise from Monaco to Saint-Tropez, but a fast yacht would take only two and a half hours,” explains Fraser’s Devic. “The broker should highlight the difference  in terms of comfort at sea and at anchor.”

Age before beauty: Don’t overlook an older yacht in the quest for the hot new thing. Many yachts are refreshed and refitted and come out of the shipyard “as good as new”, says Grzeszczak. She also notes that brokers will inspect newly refitted yachts to see how extensive and successful the refit was in order to report back to clients

Create a balanced itinerary

“The perfect itinerary comes down to what the client wants for their trip,” says Worth Avenue Yachts’ Sullivan. “Do they want to float off a private island in clear waters or hear the bustle of Saint-Tropez?”

Don’t overdo it: It can be tempting to pack your charter to the brim with activities but factoring in some downtime is recommended. “Don’t forget, you are on vacation,” says Denison Yachting’s Hiebert. “Give yourself time to enjoy the yacht.”

Be flexible: “One of the best things about a private  yacht charter is being able to change the itinerary,” says Maggie Vale from Churchill Yacht Partners , “so take advantage of the flexibility.”

Time at sea: Ocean Independence’s Saul Varndell-Baxter suggests cruising for six hours or less a day. “We suggest being flexible to change course for weather or more time to enjoy a particular new location,” he adds.

Don’t make a meal of it: Northrop & Johnson ’s Fiona Maureso warns that a common mistake first-time charterers make is booking multiple meals off the boat. “They don’t realise the chefs on board are better than the best on shore,” she says. “It’s okay to enjoy meals  off the yacht, of course, but don’t do it the entire time.”

Think outside the box: “Charter during shoulder season instead of high season – you will get a better deal, the crew are less stressed and marinas are less busy,” advises Yachtzoo’s Splinter Fangman.

Keep onboard etiquette in mind

From the outside, yachting etiquette can seem quite complex but in reality the basics are rooted in common sense. “Etiquette on board is simple: take off your shoes, be respectful to the crew and just enjoy your holiday with family and friends,” says Fraser’s Anthony Baud. “It’s just the same as a luxury hotel; people naturally know how to behave,” adds Edmiston’s Gant. For more details on superyacht charter etiquette, read our handy guide .

Understand tipping protocol

Whether you are rewarding a taxi driver after a journey or a waiter at the end of a meal, tipping can be a confusing custom fraught with the potential to offend. But there is no reason why it should stop you leaving your charter trip on a high. “Crew gratuity is customary, as in any hospitality industry,” says Westport Yacht Charters’ Vickery. “It should be regarded as a gift for a job well done and is based on the satisfaction level of the entire experience.” For further advice, read our handbook on tipping protocol . 

Know your charter basics

Make sure you know the terms and  language of the charter booking process. 

Charter rate: This generally includes the hire of the yacht and crew. The rate will be listed as “priced from”, meaning it can vary depending on the season and location. You’ll also see “plus expenses” by the price, which refers to everything else.

APA: The “plus expenses” note refers to the Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is usually 30 to 35 per cent of the overall charter fee, and covers the cost of food, alcohol, fuel and dockage etc.

Charter contract: Designed to protect both the charterer and yacht owner, this document lays out the terms of the yacht charter. It sets out the details on everything from dates and location to cancellation and insurance.

MYBA: The Worldwide Yachting Association, known as MYBA, specifies the terms of the contract, including the hire of the yacht, wages for the crew, insurance claims, water toys and engine room maintenance.

Other contract terms: You might come across other types of contracts, ranging from the mostly all-inclusive Caribbean Terms Inclusive (CTI) for smaller yachts in the Caribbean to Greek Terms (GT), which includes berthing fees within Greek waters. It can get confusing, so it is vital you talk this through with your charter broker.

Luxury Yacht Charters - the best value in travel!

When planning a special occasion or a trip of a lifetime, you inevitably come across various options.  From secluded millionaire villas to best 5- or 7-star hotels and various packages or exclusive holidays, to a great number of luxury yachts, the choice can be daunting.  Choosing the most suitable one, let alone the best one is therefore not easy.  And while SuperSailYachts cannot discuss other options, we are certain that Super Yacht Charters can offer amazing value.  We also strongly believe that only a luxury yacht charter can give you the most value during any holiday.  There may be various reasons for it, but mainly because any sailing vacation offers both seclusion of a villa, 5-star service of the best hotels and as bespoke a package as anyone can wish for.   On top of that, only on a luxury yacht charter vacation can you have a hotel room or a villa that moves around to where you want to be.  Luxury yachts offer you a complete freedom and privacy and a choice of destinations, both in terms of starting point as well as visiting any location on any given day.  On your own superyacht, if you stay at anchor you are also not being charged for daily conveniences such as resort fees, water toys or any kind of transfers to the nearby sites of interest.  You simply sail there at a time that suits you and your family or a group!


As a result, if you compare like for like, you will not have an overview as such comparison is not possible given that a luxury yachting holiday simply gives more.  Thus, if are to look at the total cost of a super yacht charter against a comparable land-based vacation, if such a comparison can be made at all, you will quite often find that chartering a boat can be significantly cheaper anyway.  We at SuperSailYachts in particular excell in providing a choice and good value ensuring you as a client do not get sold a boat represented by owner, but represented by your own broker who works for you.

Caribbean Crewed Catamarans are in particular the best value luxury yachting charter deals!

Sixty Six Mege Yacht

For a detailed list of all the best yacht charter deals in a suitable location, please do send us your  yacht charter request and we will endavour to send you both a great choice and best deal available.  There is no need to go directly to the owner or a broker representing the owner, as they will want to sell you their boat and their boat only.  We as your yacht charter broker are keen to offer you a choice, value and best independent advice, away from any pressures of satisfying the owners themselves.   You are our king and queen.  Contact us now for the best super yacht charter deals on the market. AND IF THAT is not sufficient, we can also get you in touch with one of our previous clients, providing the best referrals, recommendations and testimonials in the superyacht industry.
