Constant pampering and private luxury are indeed elements of the ideal vacation - but how do we arrive at the cost? Many charter yachts have a base charter fee and list other expenses additionally. However, certain types of charter yachts in key locations offer "all inclusive" pricing, which essentially gives clients a fixed price charter vacation with all costs established prior to departure.
Your all inclusive charter price on a crewed catamaran or sailing yacht, at minimum, includes a Captain and one additional crew member / Chef who prepares all the meals, provides personal cabin service, and helps arrange activities. Like all our charters, the yacht will be provisioned based on your preferences, including soft drinks, wine, food, etc.
So, the all inclusive charter price will include your food, drink, and most likely a standard "ship's bar". Even the smallest yachts manage to surprise our clients with what is provided. In the Caribbean and BVI's particularly, most evenings will be spent at anchor vs at a dock as the majority prefer the tranquility of their own "private island aboard".
The simple answer is "not much”, it is likely that guests will incur no other charges beyond the all inclusive rate they paid and a crew gratuity. The prices are typically based on the number of guests on board, that's simply because the more guests, the more is consumed. However, specific yachts can have a few items that could incur extra charges, and our charter specialist will note them for you beforehand so there will be no surprises. These charges will be unique to each yacht and may include things such as satellite phone usage, communication costs for computers, dockage or mooring fees, cost of scuba diving, minor cruising taxes, exclusive menu items, premium level wines, or spirits beyond what is usually stocked.
There are also a few all inclusive rates that include all costs except for the cost of alcoholic drinks. Historically even with such occasional exclusions, except where the "bar" is extra, we find clients rarely incur extra expenses beyond the base all inclusive yacht charter fee. There will be no surprises, as any exclusion will be stated in your yacht charter contract. This is a basic definition; exact details for a given yacht will be explained by our charter specialist and stated in your yacht charter contract which is the definitive source for such particulars.
