Many years ago in the United States and other major yachting destinations there were several laws passed in order to protect local boat manufacturers. One such law was the Jones Act. The act among other things deemed that unless a vessel is a US Coast Guard Inspected Vessel, it may not carry more than 6 or 12 passengers during a paid charter. There’s a long list of factors used to determine if a boat may qualify for either a 6 or 12 persons maximum capacity while under hire. Most major yachting destinations do have a 12 guest limit unless the vessel is coast guard certified to hold more passengers.

A Charter Agreement is a legal document between the broker, customer, owner and crew that outlines the key terms of your yacht charter. It will specify among other things your yacht’s technical specifications, cruise date, intended destinations, yacht pickup and drop off details, insurance and cancellation terms.

Although not mandatory, it is customary to leave a gratuity for the work of the crew and the captain at the end of a charter. Most brokers recommend a tip of 15% of the charter fee. We automatically include a gratuity charge of 15% for US charters and this fee is paid out to the captain and crew of each charter.

If you would like to add an additional tip, you are more than welcome to pay the captain at the end of your charter. The captain will make sure any additional tips are split accordingly with the crew. If you are chartering outside of the US, you are recommended to pay the captain a tip upon disembarkation for a job well done.

In almost all cases, you are allowed to bring your own food and beverages for your yacht charter. Or you can work with Dmitriy or your captain and they can coordinate to have beverages delivered to your boat prior to embarkation.

Chartering a yacht can make for an excellent family vacation. There are many activities to entertain both children and adults. In general the crew is not responsible for their safety. We recommend that you bring childcare if you want to truly relax and have a carefree time while ensuring your children are being looked after.

We do not allow any pets for health and safety reasons.

We do not allow any kind of smoking aboard. This includes e cigarettes and vaping devices.

If you are looking to do an overnight, 24-hour charter, a 2-day rate is typically charged. The reason behind this 2-day charge is that the boat is being chartered by you as the client for the 24-hour period. We/the owner are not able to charter the boat for those 2 days.

This is known as the “rule of 6” and is industry standard. When a client is chartering a yacht for a 7-day term charter (or longer), it is customary to have every 7th day provided to the customer complimentary. So if a customer is chartering for 7 days, they are only charged a 6-day rate. If a customer charters for 2 weeks, it is customary to only charge for a 12-day rate instead of 14 days, and so forth.

It is industry standard to collect a 30% APA (advance provisioning allowance) for any multi-day term charters. This APA is collected from the client and passed on to the captain and crew to provision the yacht per the client’s specifications. It is also used as an allowance to pay for any berthing fees and fuel fees incurred during the course of the charter.

If there is are any funds remaining in the APA upon disembarkation, the broker can return the remaining amount back to the client. If the client chooses they can pay the remaining funds towards the crew gratuity.

Boat, captain and mate, idle fuel, liability insurance. Anything else such as high speed cruising, certain water toys, chef, food, dockage, airport transfers, car rentals etc will be extra. Please feel free to inquire about specific details by emailing Dmitriy at He will be happy to address any concerns.
