Just imagine cruising the tropical seas aboard your own privately chartered yacht. If this has been a dream of yours that you would like to make a reality it is recommended that you first do some research. As with anything else word of mouth is always the best testament. If you have a business partner, friend, or family member that has chartered a yacht ask about their experience.
Count the Costs
There are a lot of charter companies and a huge variety of yachts available for charter. The prices are widely varied as well. A basic charter fee will include the use of the yacht and its equipment, crew salary and insurance. Additional expenses would depend upon your destination and number of guests. Some of these expenses would include the fuel, water, dockage, port and cruising taxes, mooring charges, shoreside power etc. There may be specific needs and requests that may increase your costs as well such as the food, wine, beverages, and flowers. Also, the additional cost of getting to the yacht''s location may not be included.
Do Your Research
Most of these crewed charter yachts have websites. The website should have information on the various yachts they represent. A yacht''s specifications and equipment will most likely be listed. You should charter a yacht that is a substantial ocean going vessel that can offer a high level of comfort and sea worthiness. The captain''s names should be available with their resumes and those of the rest of the crew. Security is an important issue in today''s world. Inquire what precautions they have taken and what type of security they provide. Medical situations could arise and you need to know how their company would handle an emergency situation. This should be an experience of a lifetime so you want to make sure all the bases are covered before you leave port.
Some other questions to consider: Where would you like to cruise? How long do you wish to cruise? How many guests? Will there only be adults or will children be aboard also? What type of recreational activities do you want to partake in? Do you or any of your guests have special dietary or physical needs? You want to choose the ideal yacht and crew to make exploring distant islands and tropical locations enjoyable and relaxing.
Enjoy Your Cruising Experience
Now that we have covered the necessary technical information here is what to expect onboard one of these crewed charter yachts. A typical day of cruising will include exploring private inlets and bays, swimming, fishing and snorkeling or maybe some waterskiing or racing with your friends on a jet ski. You may decide you just want to relax on a private beach improving your suntan.
