Catamarans are gaining increased popularity because they offer the fun of sailing with excellent group space, privacy and comfort. Crewed catamarans are most common in the BVI, as but also often chartered in the Mediterranean, as they are perfect for island hopping and getting close to shore. They don't "tip" so the ride is more comfortable, you have great views from the salon, and you're always close to the water for that quick swim. We also have increasing numbers of Power Catamarans, which offer excellent economy on fuel plus all the amenities of a Motor Yacht.
Events are always better on a yacht! We have a broad range of yachts specially selected for fabulous events, whether for team building, company celebration, client entertainment, weddings or any situation where you just want to do something exceptional.
We also have Yachts for "Static Charters" where your yacht becomes a conference center and party venue, at events such as the Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix and MIPIM Real Estate Conference in Cannes. Barcelona is an iconic event destination, a fantastic port close to the vibrant city and golden beach, where you can entertain with Sangria and other Spanish culture!
If you're a "foodie" consider the ulitmate gourmet experience aboard a luxury yacht. Many of the top luxury yachts now have renowned chefs aboard, waiting to create culinary sensations catered directly to your dietry requirements. You get private dining experience, with different fresh local indredients each day, prepared for you and your party. Many yachts also have world-class wine cellars with knowledgeable crew to educate you and advise on pairings.
Planning your luxury charter has never been easier. All you have to do is tell your broker what your dream yacht and destination is, with as much detail as possible. Some key things to let us know are: your desired expenditure, group configuration, chosen destination and what kind of yacht you would prefer. We will take care of the rest, as our experience and history with yacht chartering speaks for itself, alongside our excellent client testimonials.
Book Early. Be advised that the best yachts are booked 9-12 months in advance, as last minute bookings may be difficult due to limited availibilities.
Ask us anything - if you want specific exercise equipment on board, or don't know what a Sea Doo is - just ask! Our team is here to work closely with you, right from the beginning planning stages through to the end of your vacation, to make sure you understand everything before you embark, and most importantly, to make your yacht charter a resounding success.
The quoted charter rate includes the hire and insurance of the yacht, crew food and wages and the yacht’s laundry. All other expenses, including fuel for the main engine, generators and water sports, equipment, all running costs, harbour fees, all food, soft and alcoholic drinks, communication costs, local taxes, are additional.
Use of all Personal Water Crafts, including Jet Skis is only permitted subject to the operator having the appropriate license and meeting with local operating regulations. In the Mediterranean, we would advise all guests interested to obtain an RYA Personal Water Craft (PWC) Licence to safely use the water toys onboard. If you do not have a PWC licence and would like to use the jet ski, we recommend that you charter a yacht with an Approved RYA water sports centre onboard.
The additional expenses during a charter are paid for by the ‘Advanced Provisioning Allowance’, known as the ‘APA’, generally calculated at 25%-30% of the charter fee. The APA is transferred to the boat before the charter starts, so the crew can provision according to your specific requirements before you embark. Everything is purchased at cost by the crew.At the end of the charter, the Captain will present you with a fully itemised statement of the APA account, with receipts. If the account is in credit, the balance will of course be returned to you. If it is in debit, the balance must be settled in cash or, with the Captain’s agreement, by wire transfer.
