How Much Costs A Private Yacht Charter?

If you are looking to book a private yacht charter, if you have not already done so, it can be a bit daunting. Often, a search will reveal options that look similar, but the price seems very different. If you are not too familiar with a yacht charter, it can be hard to understand why. However, many factors determine the costs of a private yacht charter. Even a base price (the basic hourly/daily rate) may differ for several reasons.

Factors that affect the base price of a private yacht charter include the following:

Yacht Charter Rates

When chartering a private yacht, the size of the boat is not the only factor that affects the basic charter rate. If a yacht comes from a certain manufacturer or is very new, it may be subject to a higher rate than other boats that look similar to the naked eye.

Seasonal Rates

If you are going to Miami, the weather is usually quite nice, but we have a high season and a low season like any other major tourist destination, so the time you plan to charter a yacht can have an effect on the price you will pay.

Additional Expenses

Short-term private yacht charters generally include fuel costs in the charter rates. And will offer you catering services or will allow you to order catering delivery to a restaurant. Long-term charters include these expenses in the APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance) deposit. The APA deposit usually represents about 45% of the cost of the rental, is paid in advance, and at the end of the trip, unused funds are refunded.

The Use of Water Toys such as Jet Sis & Inflatables

Private yacht charters often offer jet skis or inner tubes in addition to a rental. But it is always a good idea to check what is included in the rates.

Staff Tips

The typical reward rate for the nautical boating sector is 15%. In the case of a private yacht charter, the gratuity is expected after the trip and is usually discussed and agreed upon in advance.

Additional Services: DJ Service, Professional Photography

These services are not standard extras for a charter, so it is important to discuss the format of the party or trip you are planning and any additional materials and equipment you wish to bring.
