What is a crewed charter?

Crewed charters represent the most luxurious experience within the yacht charter industry. A crewed yacht is a fully equipped floating 5-star hotel, exclusively for you and your loved ones. From small catamarans to mega motor yachts, the possibilities are endless! Luxurious amenities and a dedicated professional crew await to fulfill your every need during your dream vacation.


Why book your crewed charter through a broker?

A broker, a highly knowledgeable professional in the yacht market, brings extensive experience with yachts, crews, and yacht managers, offering invaluable advice and protecting your interests. A dedicated broker goes above and beyond to provide necessary information, working closely with you and the yacht to make your vacation extraordinary.


What type of yachts are there?

The market offers a wide range of options, from a 55 feet catamaran to a 100+ meters motor yacht. Whether it’s power catamarans, racing sailing yachts, solar-powered yachts, classic gullets, or 5-deck mega yachts, the variety is extensive. Yachts come in various styles, from traditional cruising yachts for leisurely sea views to ultra-modern motor yachts for luxury holidays. Our specialists carefully select charter yachts that match the unique desires of each client.

Where can you visit with a yacht?

Chartering a yacht provides the freedom to explore waterways at your own pace, reaching even lesser-known locations effortlessly. From the enchanting Mediterranean and the Caribbean’s beauty to immersing yourself in the Middle East’s vibrant culture or discovering Southeast Asia’s hidden gems, the possibilities are endless.


Chartering for the first time? Here’s what to bring along:

Most basic necessities and toiletries will be covered on board. We’ll send you a Preference-Sheet (read more blow) beforehand to make sure the crew has everything you need.

Pack like you would for a 5-star hotel summer vacation:

  • Flip-flops
  • Swimsuit
  • Travel documents
  • Personal care items
  • Medications
  • Clothing
  • Shoes suitable for walking in water and on the beach
  • Consider a jacket or lightweight sweater for cooler evenings.
  • Formal attire, if you have a special event or fancy night planned.

More benefits of chartering a crewed yacht that you should know about.
  1. Many crewed yachts come with a dedicated captain and crew who are well-acquainted with the yacht’s operations, unlike other yachts where the crew is replaced from charter to charter.
  2. To ensure a vacation suited for your needs, you will get to fill out a Preference Sheet in advance, which is a detailed form, providing information on personal preferences like food and liquor choices. It also includes details on any medical conditions or disabilities the crew should be aware of. Additionally, the form allows you to specify special requirements for activities and places you’d like to visit, enabling the crew to create a tailor-made itinerary for your perfect vacation.
  3. The payment in advance for the charter will cover everything you may need during your charter to ensure a hassle-free vacation, and the crew will handle all expenses for you during the charter. For that, the payment in advance includes Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) which is used to cover estimated additional costs of yacht preparation, requested supplies, port, mooring and other legal charges and fees, fuel and water, communications, crew gratuities, extras and depends on guest particular request for services, itinerary, food, beverages etc. In case APA is not entirely used at the end of the charter, the remaining part is returned to the client. In case the spending exceeds the APA, guests can be asked to pay the additional part.
