Yacht Charter Terms & Conditions
50 % down payment of the charter hire for booking of the yacht and the remainder 50% + (12% VAT for more than 2 days, 24% for daily cruises) + 30% APA* by 4weeks prior embarkation.* APA to be remitted cash upon embarkation.
Itinerary: The itinerary is drawn with the client and discussed prior to the charter with captain and Yacht Representative. A suggestion is sent for clients to go over it. If there are some specific islands they wish to visit we try to include them according to the days they will charter and bearing in mind the distance to get there.
The nicest islands to visit within the Cycladic area are definitely The Koufonissia Complex, Amorgos, and Santorini Island, Paros, and Antiparos.
Cruising: Usually we cruise during the day and dock at Ports enabling clients to stroll at night in the traditional villages as well as enjoy traditional taverns or quoted restaurants, that our captains may suggest to them.
Provisions: A provisions list is sent to the client for onboard provisioning. Items selected will be provided on board by our crew.
The provisions are either settled by the APA, or by the client cash once provisions are on board upon remittance of all invoices by their captain.
Fuel (Not for daily cruises): Yacht will be rendered full tank, and shall be redelivered by client full tank. An APA of 30 % is given up front to cover part of fuel expenses and provision needs. APA may need to be implemented or some funds returned to the client. All depends on charter itinerary selected and days on board. See APA definition below.
All names as per passport and passport numbers should be provided so as to prepare the Passenger List document required for charter upon booking of the yacht.
Should the client not appear on the date of embarkation, yacht representative is entitled to retain the full amount of charter fee on behalf of the owner.
Should client decline to embark for any reason and authorization for charter departure given by Port Authorities, owner’s authorized representative, will retain the full amount of charter.

The Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA)
The Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) is designed to cover the operating expenses of a charter such as, fuel (for the yacht, her tenders and motorized water toys), food, drinks, land services, electronic communications, canal fees, harbor dues, local taxes and marina fees outside Greek waters, or private marinas. Depending on the number of guests, type of yacht and duration of the charter, the APA will vary. A 25% to 30 % down payment of the total of the APA is prepaid cash by the client to the Yacht representative at the start of the charter. Your yacht will be fully fuelled and provisioned (if you have filled the provision list prior to the charter) when you step on board. Whilst an up-to-date summary of accounts can be requested at any time during your charter, a full set of accounts will normally be submitted by your captain at the end of the charter. If during the charter, the expenditure exceeds the sum already paid, additional cash funds will be required at once. All outstanding bills should be settled in cash before final disembarkation. Of course, any remaining credit at the end of your charter will be reimbursed to you in full. Should reimbursement be effected by bank transfer all bank charges, if any, will be covered by APA.
Should the itinerary change in the course of the charter upon client request, our captains will inform our clients accordingly should there be an additional petrol consumption to settle. For more than a day charter (one night two days, and charters less than 7 days), Yachts are rendered to client full tank and should be redelivered by client full tank.
Water sports (toys) are allowed only under certain conditions and always upon captains’ discretion without the need of justification. Conditions taken into consideration are:
- Marine traffic (boats, jet skis, surfers, etc.)
- Proximity to swimmers
- Topography and local conditions (shallow reefs, currents etc.)
- No usage prior consummation of alcohol
- Speed boat or Jet Ski license. Use of personal watercraft is only permitted subject to the operator having the appropriate license and meeting local regulations. Any liability arising from non-compliance is entirely at operator’s risk. Usage of Jet Ski should clients not have the required documents will be left to Captain’s discretion.
