Most of the charter rates are based on a base price with the addition of taxes and a suggested Approved Provisioning Allowance (APA) for food and beverages, fuel and other requests during the charter period. As a general rule, we suggest the client adds 40% for this APA. This 40% is based on actual consumption and is billed “at cost”: any remaining funds will be returned to the charterer at the completion of the trip. charterdart also arranges preset packages that incorporate a fixed fee.
charterdart deals with clients wishing to charter a yacht for full day, weekend or longer. We can propose to you specific itineraries based on the time you would like to allow for your yacht charter.
The base charter rate includes the yacht in working order, crew wages and a third-party marine insurance policy. All other operating expenses are payable by the charterer’s APA. The APA, is essentially a cash fund that is used to deduct relevant yacht charter expenses.
Delivery fee’s may be incurred when embarking in a destination that is away from the yacht’s home port. These are fuel-only expenses and are calcuated based on the yacht’s general fuel consumption. These fee’s are deducted from the APA (Approved Provisioning Account).
charterdart offers a Trip Cancelation Insurance Policy for clients. Please ask your charterdart Broker for more details.
The standard tipping policy is between 10-15% of the Base Charter Rate. This amount can be deducted diretly from the APA (Approved Provisioning Account).
Once you confirm your yacht charter booking, 50% of the base charter fee is payable upon the execution of the Charter Agreement. The remaining 50% plus the APA will be payable within one month of the booking. These expenses are payable via bank transfer and in certain cases a credit card payment can be made for last-minute bookings.
