Yacht Charter Agreement
The type of contract that is commonly used is by M.Y.B.A (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association). The parties that will sign the charter agreement are the owner of the Yacht, the charterer and the Broker(s). To confirm the booking, the payment of the 50% of the charter fee (1st instalment) will be required. The balance of the charter fee plus VAT (if Any), the A.P.A and any other agreed expenses such as delivery / redelivery fees (if any), security deposits (if any) etc. will be requested to be paid one month prior to embarkation date.
What's included in the Charter Rate?
The charter rate includes the hire of the yacht and its crew, the yacht insurance, the crew insurance, the cew's wages, uniforms and food.
In Gulet charters, it is common that the charter rate includes also fuel up to four hours per day, water & cooking gas and the use of air conditioners according to the gulet. The brokerage commissions are also included on the charter fee.
What is A.P.A ?
The A.P.A. (Advance Provisioning Allowance) covers all the expenses during your trip. All expenses related to fuel and water consumption, food, beverages and alcoholic drinks, port and canal fees, are extra of the charter price which includes only the fees for the yacht and its crew. Customarily in crewed charters, client pays an amount for all these extra charges up front and it is the captain's responsibility to proceed with payments and give at the end of the cruise analytical receipts to the client. The amount for these expenses is called Advance Provisioning Allowance (A.P.A) and its purpose is to enhance the level of services rendered, by allowing client to remain un-distracted by day to day expenses. The A.P.A depends upon the level of provisioning that the client requires, but as crewed charters include breakfast, lunch and dinner along with beverages and alcohol, 20-30% for the A.P.A is a considerable amount of money. If at the end of the charter A.P.A is not exhausted, the remaining balance is returned to the client. On the other hand if more expenses have occurred, client is kindly requested to make up the balance to the Captain onboard in Cash.
What is the VAT?
The VAT is different from country to country therefore, varies depending on the cruising area. If any additional VAT is required during the charter time, at charter area, then this cost will be paid extra by the charterer with the balance payment.
