Private Yacht Charter Expectations

A fully crewed private yacht charter is truly a unique and magical experience. Why, you may ask? A private yacht charter is very different from a cruise ship vacation, as it is tailored to your desires and your needs. You won’t have to elbow your way through crowds of people on deck or wait in line for access to water sports. Each of the private yachts offer a variety of activities that are for the enjoyment of the charterers only.

The yacht you’ve decided to charter also differs from renting an exclusive resort villa. Like an exclusive resort villa, you unpack once and you will have a staff that works tirelessly to ensure that you have everything you need to have a fabulous vacation; however, instead of being stuck in one location, you will be able to enjoy many. If one beach seems busy, you can move on to another. Or maybe you would like to do some sightseeing. Your captain can take you to several locations in one day. You can escape from all of the other sightseers and you always have the perfect place to sunbathe right on your own deck!

Tailored Service

Besides the activities that are offered aboard your private yacht charter, which may include things like snorkeling, wakeboarding, SCUBA diving, jet skiing, and much more, your crew may arrange for you to have fun ashore enjoying activities like horseback riding, parasailing, shopping, and many other things. If there is an activity you would like to try, ask about it. Your crew can probably make it happen. They are there to help you make memories that will last a lifetime!

When you charter a private yacht, the yacht’s crew will take care of your needs to ensure you enjoy your well-earned vacation. In order for them to do that, they will need a completed Charter Preference Form. This form helps them get to know what you like and what you may like. It is important to share specific things on this form, like allergies, any specific dislikes, and ages of younger party members. The Captain will also share ideas on how to maximize your yacht charter experience. Rely on the Captain and crew for tips on the quietest anchorages for the evening, the most scenic beaches, and the best entertainment ashore.

Private Yachts for Every Budget

Please browse our list of yachts online. We maintain a variety of private charter yachts available with weekly budgets between $10,000 to over $750,000. If you don’t see something that meets your requirements, please let us know, as these are just a sampling. Our specialists have access to many more yachts off line. They will be happy to prepare a selection of private charter yachts that fit your criteria from the entire set of available yachts with no obligation and absolutely no cost to you. Whether you are looking to charter a private yacht for an intimate cruise for two or you are coordinating a large gathering, we will be able to put together a selection for you to consider. Feel free to speak to one of our charter specialists and find out how your budget matches to different yachts or types of yachts.

Various Types of Private Yachts

There is a variety of private yacht charters for different tastes, activity levels, and budgets. Small sailing yachts and motor yachts are for a couple, a small family, or small group. A Crewed Catamaran can be for a small group or a larger group, depending upon its size, and many of these are available with all-inclusive rates. Mega yachts are set up for larger groups; many of them can handle up to 12 guests. For larger parties, it is possible to charter private yachts in tandem. Naturally, when a yacht is larger, it will have more amenities and more crew, which allows for a higher service level. Fortunately, no matter what, we have received good reviews from clients aboard all types and sizes. So when you are going to charter a private yacht you can rest assured that you will receive a clean yacht with professional crew that is dedicated to giving you the best vacation possible! Our post-charter feedback from clients confirms what a great vacation a luxury private yacht charter can be.

Countless Alternatives

One of the best things about a private charter yacht vacation is the flexibility. If you are particular about certain foods, the chef will be happy to plan for that, but if you are willing to be adventurous, the chef will be happy to tempt your palette with exotic local fare. For instance, after a day of shopping in the Caribbean maybe you have picked up fresh papaya, guava, or pineapple. Your chef will happily work that into the evening meal. You can’t get that type of service on a cruise ship!

No fixed itinerary is also a wonderful alternative. When you set up your private charter yacht, you will have a pre-arranged point to embark and a pre-arranged point to disembark. You will also have made a loose itinerary with your Captain; however, loose is the operative word here. This is just an initial plan. If you are at one point and you don’t care for the weather, you can move on to the next point. Or maybe you are in a location that is particularly pleasant and you’d like to stay longer, that’s your choice! Maybe you are underway and you spot the perfect snorkeling spot; tell the Captain and he can stop the yacht right there. Your itinerary is as flexible as you’d like it to be. The only requirement is to have the yacht back by the agreed upon time (which you may find more of a challenge than you originally thought).
