Sailing Yacht Charter FAQs

What is a private yacht charter?

Private yacht charter is the method of renting a sailboat, a motor yacht, or a motor sailing vessel, and cruising to various coastal or island destinations. This exclusive form of travel combines the adventure of the seas with luxurious personal service, offering an unparalleled experience. YACHTZOO specializes in providing a fleet of sailing yachts and motor yachts for these unique adventures.

There are two major forms of charter: crewed and bareboat. A crewed yacht charter implies that the yacht is leased with a qualified crew, led by a Captain who is responsible for running the yacht and ensuring your every wish is taken care of. A crew is typical aboard a luxury superyacht charter, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a high level of service and comfort.

The other option is bareboat charter, which involves renting a boat and skipping it with no crew to help, but usually, this option is only available for smaller yachts. At YACHTZOO, all of our luxury yacht charters are fully crewed, ensuring that our clients enjoy the ultimate charter experience with the highest standard of service.

What is the process for booking a luxury yacht charter?

The process for booking a luxury yacht charter begins with a yacht charter enquiry. This is where you contact the broker, providing details such as your chosen cruising dates, the length of the charter, the number of guests to be accommodated, your preferred yacht type (motor yacht or sailing yacht), charter budget, cruising region, plus any special requests or must-have onboard amenities. The YACHTZOO team, with their expert advice, will then diligently work to source all suitable options, offering you a curated list of available yachts that fit your specifications.

Once you have settled on the yacht that you want to charter, the process will continue with the signing of a yacht charter contract between you, the yacht owner or charter manager, and us, the broker. This agreement ensures that all parties’ expectations and responsibilities are clearly outlined and agreed upon.

As the departure date nears, the final balance is paid, and your broker will create a detailed preference sheet for you and your guests. This helps the crew know what to buy and cook for you during your stay, ensuring that every aspect of your luxury charter is personalized to your tastes and preferences.

Then, the final step is to sit back and enjoy your bespoke yacht charter holiday!

Where can I go on a luxury yacht charter?

There are many incredible luxury yacht charter destinations. Our clients typically choose the Caribbean during the winter months and head to the Mediterranean for the summer. However, for those seeking unique adventures, options extend to more off-the-beaten-track destinations like Asia and Antarctica. With YACHTZOO, you can explore a wide range of destinations, including the Virgin Islands, Saint Martin, and the iconic coasts of Italy, among others.

Whether you’re dreaming of a superyacht charter exploring the sparkling seas of the Bahamas, the exclusive nightlife of the Côte d’Azur, the remote beaches of the Caribbean, the scenic coasts of Spain, Thailand, New England, or any other location you can imagine, there’s a yacht waiting for you. YACHTZOO’s luxury yacht charters offer access to some of the most sought-after and secluded destinations in the world, ensuring an unforgettable experience.

What is the duration of a superyacht charter?

The duration of a superyacht charter depends on the guest preference, as well as on the type and size of the yacht, and can vary from a single day to several weeks. The duration is decided in advance according to the client’s preferences. At YACHTZOO, our luxury yacht charters are typically a week minimum, giving our guests plenty of time to fully enjoy their vacation.

How much does a luxury yacht charter cost?

A luxury yacht charter doesn’t have a fixed price, with each yacht being unique. The charter price starts with the base cost of the yacht, and is updated based on the dates (whether the charter is in high season or low season) and destination. You also have to pay an Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) to cover the cost of all the provisions you use while onboard, including fuel and food/drink, alongside practicalities such as berthing fees.

When should I book my luxury yacht charter?

As a general rule, booking your luxury yacht charter as early as possible will maximise your options and make sure that you can find your dream yacht to charter, as many start taking bookings up to a year in advance.

Since your superyacht charter should be personalised to your own needs and preferences, booking a year in advance gives you plenty of time to plan your cruising itinerary.

How much to tip on a private yacht charter?

There is not a precise rule for giving tips on a luxury yacht charter, but it’s common to provide a standard tip of around 10-15% of the charter fee, depending on the yacht and the location. Tips are usually towards the lower end of that scale in the Mediterranean and to the higher end in the US and Caribbean.

What types of adventures can I experience on a luxury yacht charter?

Embark on thrilling adventures, from diving in crystal-clear waters to exploring remote islands. Each luxury charter with YACHTZOO is tailored to offer unique and unforgettable experiences.

Is there personal service onboard a luxury yacht charter?

Experience unparalleled personal service with our dedicated crew. From gourmet dining to personalized itineraries, our team ensures every detail of your journey is impeccably catered to.

What makes an elegant sailing yacht charter special?

An elegant sailing yacht offers a blend of traditional charm and modern luxury. It’s an exquisite way to experience the sea, combining adventure with the tranquility of sailing.

How do I ensure I have the right cabin?

Choosing the right cabin depends on your needs for comfort, space, and luxury. Our team can provide expert advice to help you select the perfect accommodation for your stay.
