CHOOSING THE YACHT:

Once we know your preference for the size, number of guests, type of yacht and style of traveling and dates of charter we send you a selection of available yachts that suits your requirements and we help you choose the right one for you.

BOOKING THE YACHT:

When you have selected a yacht, and the dates and ports of embarkation /disembarkation have been agreed upon, we will prepare a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). We will send you this agreement to be signed and returned to us. At this point 50% of the charter Fee should be transferred to our Bankers to secure the yacht on your behalf. When the Owner countersigns the Agreement, one original will be returned to you. The balance of the charter Fee, the advance towards provisioning of the yacht (A.P.A.), V.A.T. and any applicable delivery or redelivery fee will be due for payment one month prior to embarkation.

CHARTER TERMS & CONDITIONS:

The charter rate includes the hire and insurance of the yacht, a fully qualified crew, fed and insured, water and ship's laundry. Excluded are fuel for the yacht, tender and toys, all food and drinks, communication costs, canal dues,  gratuity for the crew and VAT. You may be charged berthing dues and other harbour charges, including canal and pilotage fees and charges for water and/or electricity taken from shore, foreign agent's fees, charges for passport formalities and local taxes. 

ADVANCE PROVISIONING ALLOWANCE (A.P.A)

This is used to cover all expenses excluded from the charter rate (as stated above plus other expenses that you may have during your charter like transfers, excursions etc). The amount varies depending on the yacht, the itinerary chosen, provisioning requested by the charterer, the number of passengers and days of travel. In general it falls somewhere between 25%-30% of the charter fee.

All costs incurred by the yacht, which are accountable to the charterer will be deducted during the cruise and full accounts will be produced at the end. Occasionally the A.P.A is not sufficient and the Captain will keep you advised if further funds are required.

At the end of the charter, the final account will determine if a refund or any further payments are due. Please note that yachts are usually only able to accept payments in cash.

REPOSITIONING CHARGES:

If you require your yacht to relocate to a port of embarkation or disembarkation away from its homeport, delivery and/or redelivery fees will be charged based on the distance and fuel required.

V.A.T.

In accordance with the European Union Directive, yacht charter prices are subject to varying tax rates depending on the country or countries you visit during your charter.

GRATUITIES:

It is customary, if you are pleased with the service on board, to leave a gratuity for the crew. The amount is left at your own discretion; a figure within the range of 5-15% of the charter fee is usual.

PREPARING YOUR YACHT:

At least one month prior to embarkation, we will send you some forms requesting information about you and your guests, i.e. your travel arrangements & flight details, special equipment you wish to have on board, any celebrations you wish to arrange during the cruise and of course, your food & drink preferences. These forms should be completed and returned to us so we can prepare the yacht for your cruise.

ITINERARY:

We will be happy to help you plan your itinerary and advise you of what can be sensibly achieved in the time available, along with the best places to visit. We recommend that itineraries be kept as flexible as possible as they are subject to various factors such as weather conditions or your own change of heart. Any pre-planned itinerary, with the exception of the Port of Redelivery, may be altered in consultation with the Captain. The Captain's decision is final relating to any matter regarding the safety of the yacht or those on board.

CHARTER RATES:

Charter rates are quoted for weekly bookings; most yachts offer advantages for early bookings, repeat clients and longer duration.

WATER SPORTS & SCUBA DIVING:

The Captain and crew will gladly instruct you in the use of the yacht's water sports equipment. Most yachts carry a range of such equipment, but we cannot guarantee that it will be the same as what is listed in the brochure. Jet skis may be operated by the Charterers themselves but only with care and due consideration for the peace and safety of other yachtsmen and swimmers, and in accordance with relevant laws in force at the time. Tenders may only be used in the company of experienced crew members.

Scuba diving - Please note that Greece and Turkey place severe controls on independent scuba diving in their waters in an effort to curb the plundering of underwater antiquities. It is therefore necessary to dive with local licensed diving instructors. According to your itinerary we can arrange for instructors and equipment from scuba diving schools on various islands.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES:

We are able to undertake all your travel and personal arrangements including car rental, limousines, helicopters, hotel reservations etc, as well as personalised visits and guided tours to ancient sites and monuments on the islands or inland. (These expenses will be added in your APA account).
