How do I book a trip?

Firstly, browse the many possible charter destinations and itinerary options. Once you have that narrowed down (ask us if in doubt), browse the yacht selections available in that area (the list online may not be complete, but it will give you an idea), and then consult with one of our brokers for availability and expert advise. If you fill out our Info Request Form it helps us considerably, to find you the best charter option for your desires.

Also keep in mind that many yachts are often booked many months in advance. As such, if you are interested in a particular yacht and have an idea of when you want to charter, you should contact us early in the decision making process so we can check on yacht availability and let you know about any special deals.

Once you have found your dream yacht vacation, we will place a hold. See details of the booking process below:

Booking Procedures:

1. Choose a destination ~ type and size (just a few of the choices) of Yacht Charters.

2. Check Availability ~ Once you’ve chosen or narrowed it down we will confirm availability for your desired dates of travel.

3. Working Hold ~ If the dates work for you and the yacht, we will put a working hold in the calendar for preferred dates. You then have two weeks (for crewed yachts and as little as 48 hours for bare boats) in which to send your deposit to officially reserve (confirm) the charter. However, another charter party can challenge you (on crewed charters) for these dates, which would give you only 48 hours to secure your reservation with a deposit or lose the first option on those dates.

4. Deposit & Rebate ~ If you make your selection more than six months in advance, we will need a 25% deposit, with another 25% due at the six month mark. If you book within six months of the charter start, we will need 50% of the charter fee to confirm your reservation. If you are booking within 90 days of your charter departure, the full payment is required. We generally accept credit cards (Visa, MC) with a convenience fee of 3.5%, bank transfer or certified check. REBATE: Once your charter is confirmed with the 50% booking deposit we will send you a rebate check of 5% of the charter rate. You may use your rebate to cover the credit card convenience fee.

5. Charter Agreement and Preferences Form ~ We will email you the appropriate Yacht Charter Agreement to sign and Preferences Form to fill in for crewed charters. For a bare boat rental we will email you the required resume form and other charter documents. Send or fax those back to us as soon as possible.

6. Completed Charter Agreement ~ The charter documents are forwarded to the yacht captain or bare boat company.

7. Charter Confirmation & Rebate ~ When your deposit clears the bank you will receive a Confirmation number by e-mail. At this time your charter is officially reserved and we will then send you your rebate by mail.

8. Final Payment ~ Most crewed and bare boat yachts require final payment to be made 60 days prior to charter yacht start date by any of the methods described above.

9. Charter Contact ~ Prior to your vacation, the crew of your chosen yacht will contact you to discuss your meal and activities preferences, and itinerary. If you are renting a bare boat we will supply you with the bare boat company contact information for any last minute arrangements.

10. Sail Away ~ You are all set to meet your yacht and sail away into the sunset! Have fun!

When you book your yacht, you may want to make flight arrangements, and hotel reservations if you intend to arrive early or stay after your charter. We have put together some travelers Information under certain destinations.
