The charterer is the principal entity, person or representative named and signatory to the charter contract.
The charter fee includes the rent of the yacht with its crew (rental of the yacht, crew salaries, insurance, etc.).
The Advanced Provisionning Allowance (APA) consists of a pre-calculated sum of money paid by the charter in advance to the captain who will use it to pay the charterer’s expenses over and above the rental of the yacht (fuel, food and beverages, entertainment) and is around 30/35% of the cost of the charter (all expenses are at cost price from the goods or services supplier). At the end of the charter, the captain will present to the charterer a detailed sheet listing all the particular charter expenses together with the relevant invoices and reimburse the funds that have not been used during the meantime.
The payment for a charter is made in 2 installments. The first one constitutes 50% of charter fees and is due upon the signature of the contract and this secure the booking of the yacht charter. The second installment consists of the remaining 50% plus VAT and a security deposit (APA) is due no later than one motnh prior to the charter starts.
Last minute charters can be made subject to availability of the yacht. There may be deals to be had in the case of a cancellation or a space between two bookings for a yacht which is offered at a discount.
How much should I tip the crew? The crew are employed by the yacht owning company and it is entirely up to you whether you tip them after the commercial operation. The normal level of tipping is around 10% of the charter fee for a satisified client but it remains entirelyat the guests discretion. We would recommend yoy to give it to the captain to seperate it equally.
The guest preference list is for the guests to fill out by giving any details of personal likes and dislikes for consideration by the crew. This is particularly prevalent with consideration to drink and food, possible allergies and any medical or physical considerations. The preference list can also be used to express an inclination for certain sports, music/entertainment and just about anyhting else that comes to mind to have everythink taken into account for your personnalized pleasure during the commercial operation. Moreover, a lit of all charter guests will be required beforehand along with corresponding nationalities and passport numbers with the utmost confidentiality. This allow us to anticipate any particular requirements when travelling with regards to the authorities.
