Private yacht charter prices vary sigificantly, based on the size of the yacht, the type of yacht, how many crew, and where the yacht is cruising. There are also high and low season rates. We only arrange fully crewed luxury yacht charters, and for all bookings the yacht charter price, "charter fee", includes the cost of the yacht, the crew, and the yacht's insurance.
For this type of pricing, the basic charter fee covers the yacht (equipment and amenities), its crew (plus their meals), and insurance coverage for the aforementioned.
Additional costs will include the running expenses for the yacht during the charter including fuel for the yacht, generators, tenders, water toys, dockage, port fees, and all other consumables like food and drinks. These are all considered charter expenses.
These other costs incurred are charged "at cost" with no markups. This provides fair pricing for all clients. A charter where the charterer wishes to cover large distances and wants to consume the very finest wines will obviously incur higher expense costs than a charterer who travels short distances and has more modest tastes in food and wine.
It is hard to predict such expenses in advance so this system has proven very popular for the majority of yachts. The charterers themselves control the costs, and the captain updates them as frequently as desired during the charter. Our charter specialist will be able to provide an outline of expected charter costs beforehand.
