As an independent yacht chartering broker, ADDISON can tailor your vacation down to the smallest detail.

Here are some of the most common queries about crewed yacht charters we see from our clients. If you have a question that isn’t covered here, make sure to contact us!

What kind of yacht charter trips do you offer?

We specialize in finding the right yacht, the appropriate crew, the perfect destination and the best activities possible for you and your companions. With ADDISON, you don’t have to simply choose from a few set packages – we can build your yacht charter vacation to your specification!

How much does a yacht charter cost?

The cost of a crewed yacht charter will depend on several factors. The larger the yacht and the more crew is required, the higher the cost – although if you travel with a large party, the cost per person may be lower. Motor or power yachts are often slightly more expensive than sailing yachts by length. The amenities included will also affect the cost, as will the number of days out. Once your proposed charter is tailored, we will disclose to you exactly what is included and what would be considered as “added expenses”.

What do I need to bring?

The smaller your luggage, the better, but then again you don’t want to be caught without something important. Check our comprehensive What to Bring page for a list of recommended items to pack.

What type of activities are available?

This again depends on the specific yacht charter, but common activities include scuba diving, kayaking, tubing, jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding, parasailing, snorkeling, swimming, sunbathing, dining, night clubbing, shopping, fishing, etc.

What type of amenities will be included?

In general, the amenities included in each yacht vacation will be listed. Some yachts can change or upgrade amenities from season to season.  Amenities can include on board luxuries such as gyms and hot tubs, water toys such as kayaks, jet skis, and ski boats, and even electronic gadgetry like computers and satellite internet for business use in case you can’t completely unplug.

What will my itinerary include?

With ADDISON, we work with you to create an itinerary that is based on your interests and requests different destinations offer specific attractions, and weather or time of year may also affect what is available.  We can let you know what type of attractions particular locations features.

What kinds of meals and beverages will be served onboard?

Many charters include the services of an onboard professional chef, and your menus can be created around your personal likes and dislikes as well as dietary needs. Check out our Meals and Menus page for some samples of meals that can be served.
