How to charter a yacht

If you have ever dreamed of owning a yacht, you are not alone. These luxury boats are often considered the pinnacle of wealth, providing a mansion-like experience on the high seas. Decked out with everything from multiple bedrooms and gourmet kitchens to on-deck swimming pools and helicopter landing pads, a yacht can essentially serve as a home away from home.

A customized experience
Most yacht charters come complete with access to a crew, including a captain, a cleaning staff, and a chef, allowing for a completely customized experience. Rather than relying on a menu, the yacht’s chef can pre-plan meals that fit your mood and sense of taste, no matter where you are going or what you are craving. This kind of sailing holiday can give you a customized experience unavailable anywhere else.

√ How many passengers 

We suggest booking at least 6-7 months in advance, as there is a wider variety of available yachts to choose from and occasionally, some special offers for early bookings. 

MYBA Agreement and payment terms
The type of contract that is used is produced by M.Y.B.A. (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association).
To confirm your booking after signing, the payment of the 50 percent of the charter fee (1st installment) will be required.

The remaining 50 percent of the charter fee plus the VAT (if any), the A.P.A. (Advance Provisioning Allowance is the amount intended to cover operational expenses for bunkering, food & drink supplies and any other incidental) and any other agreed expenses such as delivery/redelivery fees (if any), security deposits (if any), etc., will be requested to be paid 5 weeks prior to the embarkation date.

What does the charter rate include?
The charter rate includes the yacht hire and yacht’s insurance, the crew, and the crew’s food & insurance. The brokerage commissions are also included on the charter fee.

How much money do I have to spend on a yacht?
Prices vary depending on where you are going, the size of the yacht, and the duration of your trip. A week on a smaller yacht or a catamaran may start at around 12,000 EUR, while a larger 100-foot yacht will likely be in the 40,000 EUR to 90,000 EUR range.

How much is the VAT?
The VAT is different from country to country and varies depending on the cruising area. The Greek VAT is currently 12% on top of the charter fee and 9,2% for the commercially registered yachts. 

High & Low season
In southern Europe, July/August is the high season and any other special events such as the Cannes Film festival, the Monaco Grand Prix, Christmas, and New Year.

Low season is the rest of the period.

Do not forget, a luxury trip deserves to begin and end in style. With an Alpha Mykonos professional chauffeur service, you can get to the departure site for your yacht charter with ease.
