Water Toys – Fully crewed yachts are usually fully stocked with the best water toys around. Kayaks, paddle boards, tubes, water skis are just some of the fun toys you can find on fully crewed yachts. Rather than having to rent these things separately, like you would on a bareboat charter, water toys are typically standard on fully crewed yachts!

Stress Free Sailing – With a permanent crew on board to take care of all of the navigating, cooking and cleaning, your only job is to relax, kick back and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.

Flexibility on pick-up/drop-off locations –  Depending upon your yacht, the sailing destination and ships availability, the yacht might have some flexibility on pick-up locations on your starting island. For example, in the Virgin Islands, some yachts can offer for a fee a USVI pickup to save you time and avoid having to take the ferry.

Rates –  

In the Caribbean, typically prices are all inclusive meaning all your crew services, meals, beverages (including standard ship’s bar), use of water toys, fees, fuel, taxes and communications are included all in the price.

In the Med, rates are plus expenses and you will have an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) to cover the costs of operating the vessel, food and drink. If you don’t spend the whole APA the difference is returned to you at the end of the charter, or if you have been mostly surviving on a diet of champagne and caviar you may need to settle the difference.  In the Mediterranean and the Bahamas, there is also a VAT tax that will be added onto the cost of the trip.


What’s Not included – Crew Gratuities, top shelf liquor and fine wines, transportation to/from the boat, any day trips/excursions taken off the yacht.
