The motor yacht fleet defines luxury afloat. Commonly called Mega Yachts, they will have the most space per client of any other type of yacht you could charter. The on-board comforts are stunning and the living quarters will remind you of a Manhattan apartment.
The mega yacht can move at over 20 knots (nautical mile/hour) which means that you can experience greater range then a sailboat or catamaran.
Sometime you will find there are as many or more crew then passengers. This allow for a level of service and attention that is unprecedented in the charter industry.
Typically these yachts go out at $30,000 and up per week. This is the yacht only. All other costs are additional. You will be charged a APA (advance provisioning allowance) in addition to the charter rate. The normal APA rate is 25% to 35% of the yacht rate. This will be used to cover food, beverages, fuel, drinks, dockage, and any other expense associated with the charter. At the end of the charter the captain or purser will go over the receipts with you. If all the money was not spent then there is a refund if more was spent then you have to make up the difference. Oh, and don’t forget the gratuity of 10% to 20% of the charter fee at your discretion based on how well you felt the crew performed.
There are charter yachts all over the world that will provide you with a vacation of a lifetime. Choose your destination from the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean, the BVI or the Grenadines in the Caribbean, New England in the US, the Inland Passage in Canada or the Cyclades in Greece just to name a few. Your choices are endless. Once you experience this type of vacation you will be hooked!
The ultimate in relaxing vacations. Each yacht comes with an experienced and professional crew with the goal of taking care of your every wish. No responsibility, no shopping for provisions, no cooking or cleaning! You don’t even have to make your own drinks! The Captain is a licensed professional with experience on the waters you will be cruising. The Chef will cook gourmet meals designed around your preferences.
It is well known that the best food in the islands are prepared on the crewed charter yachts. To say the food is great is an understatement! The chefs have exceptional experience and have been vetted by previous charter guests. They plan and prepare the cuisine for your charter based on your likes and dislikes and their sole purpose is to provide you with a culinary experience you will long remember.
A Charter Yacht provides versatility unlike a villa or an all-inclusive resort. You don’t have to settle for one beach, one snorkeling site or one party spot. You can experience a new beach, snorkeling spot and island every day. Or you can choose the amount of time you spend in one spot. As if that is not enticing enough, you get luxury accommodations, a private chef, and an experienced Captain to take you where your heart desires. For the sailing enthusiast, you can choose a sailboat that will give you exhilarating sails or a catamaran that has a stable platform and is very fast or a motor yacht that will get you there in a hurry. All of the yachts are luxurious and ready to serve your needs. Compass Yacht Charters is here to help you choose the yacht and crew that will best suit your needs.
