What Is Yacht Service?
Yacht service, which is also referred to as yacht management, includes the actions of helping or assisting the owner of a luxury yacht with the maintenance and upkeep of their vessel. This can include scheduling and carrying out routine maintenance and repairs, hiring crew, planning itineraries, budgeting and controlling finances, taking security and safety measures and more.

Chartering a yacht can seem like a daunting prospect for the first time. There are many things to consider including what the base charter fee or rate is and how much you will be expected to pay on top of this amount.
The cost of a luxury yacht can vary greatly depending on the size, location, amenities and the charter season. The most common costs to expect are fuel, dockage and insurance fees as well as the Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA). APAs can be anywhere between 25% and 30% of the base charter rate.
A yacht’s size also affects the cost of its crew. The smallest of sailing boats typically has just a few crew members, while larger motor yachts can have a team of 30 or more, including captains and cooks. The reputation of the crew is also important.
There are three main types of yacht charters: bareboat, cabin and crewed. Bareboat charters are a popular option for solo travelers who want to get off the beaten path and explore uncharted destinations. They are also ideal for those who don’t have the funds to travel on a large luxury vessel.
Cabin and crewed yacht charters are also a popular choice for couples or groups of friends who want the convenience of a full-service vacation without the costs of a private yacht. They are also an excellent option for families with children, who may not have the funds to travel on a large yacht but still want to experience the ultimate in luxury.
Whether you are cruising the Mediterranean or exploring the world’s most exotic locations, there is something for everyone on a yacht charter. From Michelin-level cuisine to luxurious spas and water toys, a yacht charter can bring your dreams to life.
