Have you ever wondered how affordable a yacht charter might be? Would it surprise you to find out that it is more doable than you may realize?

What’s Included?

First, let’s look at what’s included in your yacht charter. The answer is, it depends! If you consider a yacht that’s under sail power, (a sailboat or a catamaran) just about everything is included. This would include all of the accommodations, crew, food and provisions (excluding tips). And don’t forget all of the entertainment that comes along with your boat such as a tender, water skis, fishing equipment, snorkeling gear, etc… Conversely, if you are interested in a power yacht, it becomes more expensive due primarily to fuel costs that might be unknown. However, we will walk you through the calculations and comparisons should you want a power yacht experience.

How Does this Compare?

Let’s assume that a high end resort might cost a couple a minimum of $1,000/day – for accommodations and food/alcohol before taxes. With other activities, perhaps a car rental, etc… a couple might be looking at spending upwards of $10,000/week or more on that “resort” vacation. Or it could be way more depending on the destination! Now, IF 2 or 3 couples got together, you see how a very nice yacht rental becomes very doable! In fact, a very nice catamaran for 6 or 8 guests in HIGH season might be anywhere in a range from as low as $5,000 up to around $50,000. Sounds good, right?!
