Searching yachts for Charter

How to search yachts for charter?

Step 1: Select a qualified yacht charter broker

When searching yachts for charter, knowing the best yachts for charter, where to go, and the best time to go are all that matters.

There are literally thousands of yachts for charter – most of which look the same. Do they have the right toys, poor or great service, new or old interiors? How will you know?

Spend just a few seconds browsing sites – even after this you’ll be left confused and wondering what the best yachts are and when they are available.

How about all the sites you visited that left out the best yachts. How would you know they were even left out?

The reality is you cannot know the full availability of the best yachts for charter without the guidance of an expert yacht charter broker who has insider knowledge of the global yacht charter fleet.

For these reasons the only decision you need to make is to work with a yacht charter specialist.

But while there are many yacht charter brokers that will jump at the opportunity to offer their services, only a few have their pulse on the marketplace as well as real-world experience operating superyachts and traveling to all the hottest yacht charter destinations.

Choosing a qualified yacht charter broker when searching yachts for charter is the most important decision you’ll make. This is the big win you’ll experience and why clients only use Todd Weider as their yacht charter broker.

These rare specialists know much more than even the most tuned-in yacht enthusiast. They are better connected, they have access to the finest yachts, and they can tell you how to go about organizing the best trips.

After this decision, with proper insider knowledge and guidance, the rest of your decisions will be easy to make.

To help with this process, download the Best Yacht Charter Broker Comparison Guide for free.

Step 2: Choosing where to go and when

There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of destinations and itineraries available for your next yacht charter.

A week in the Bahamas or the Monaco Grand Prix. The South Pacific, or The Greek Isles. Knowing when to book, the best time to go, and the best itinerary is where it all starts.

With a 10-minute discovery call, your yacht charter specialist will gather enough information to begin the planning phase of your next yacht charter. Once they have narrowed down your schedule, the best destination to visit during this time, and an itinerary that meets your needs, they can finish the preliminary planning of your yacht charter vacation.

Step 3: The number of guests and special requirements

During your introductory call, a good yacht charter specialist will certainly ask about the number of guests that will be joining you. They will also ask if any of your guests have any special requirements.

You may not know how many guests will be joining you during your discovery call, and if there will be supernumeraries such as nannies, pilots, or nurses. During your call, knowing approximates is okay, and can be firmed up later.

The important part to remember is the majority of yachts for charter only allow a maximum of 12 guests, regardless of how big they are, and how many staterooms the yacht has.

Your yacht charter specialist will expand on this during your discovery call.

Step 4: Budget and yacht size

When it comes to yachts, size and price go very much hand in hand. Bigger yachts mean a higher weekly rate, more crew to operate them, more amenities, more of everything.

For approximate term (weekly) yacht charter pricing, see the “How Much is a Yacht Charter?” table above.

Depending on your needs, budget, the number of guests, and itinerary, your yacht charter specialist will help you determine the size of yacht that best suits your charter experience. This also includes selecting a yacht that can go to the places on your itinerary.

For example, a yacht over 180′ may not be able to navigate certain places, which means a smaller yacht may have to be considered. This is why working with a yacht charter specialist with former superyacht charter experience as a respected captain is important.

When it comes to pricing, rates are normally quoted by the week, which includes the yacht and the crew. In addition to the weekly base charter rate, additional costs include taxes, dockage, fuel, relocation fees, provisions, etc.

Many of these expenses fall under the APA or Advance Provisioning Allowance, which is normally 35% of the base charter rate. Taxes and relocation fees are generally outlined in the charter agreement, where APA covers operational costs and provisions.

Gratuity is also an expense to be considered when chartering a yacht. While the amount of gratuity is 100% at the discretion of the charterer, it is not uncommon for 10%-15%+ of the base rate to be left to the crew.

Step 5: Type of yacht charter

Choosing the type of yacht to charter and the activities you wish to experience is the final step in narrowing down your selection of yachts for charter.

Types of yachts include Sailing Yachts, Motoryachts, Explorer/Expedition Yachts, Classic Yachts, and Fast Yachts. Choosing the type of yacht for your destination may also be determined by the activities you wish to experience. Activities may focus on exploring, sailing, wellness, or a corporate event.

Once your yacht charter specialist has this last piece of information, they will begin the process of shortening up your list and will provide a complete presentation of yachts that meet your requirements.

Step 6: Yacht charter presentation

The best yacht charter specialists will provide you with a well-prepared yacht charter presentation prepared specifically for your requirements. In this presentation, a complete list of the best yachts for charter will be included. The presentation will include the rate for each yacht, the number of crew onboard during your charter, how many guests the yacht sleeps, and any additional notes such as relocation fees, additional toys, tenders, etc.

The presentation will also include links to brochures or websites for each yacht presented. These e-brochures will have photos of the yacht for charter, both interior, and exterior. They will also include lifestyle images where you’ll see the yacht in action, the type of food to expect, and its toys.

In addition to photos of the yacht, images of the crew and their bio’s are also often included.

Step 7: Selection and contract

Once you have studied, compared, and discussed the yachts presented for charter with your family and your yacht charter specialist, selections are made. Your yacht charter broker will now inquire on availability and begin narrowing down the selection process.

Because there are many moving parts in the operation of a busy yacht charter operation, waiting to hear back on the availability of each yacht can take several days. During this time, all the details of the contract are discussed, including pickup and drop-off location, special requirements, etc, to avoid exchanging contracts multiple times.

It is also important to know the yacht charter contracts are standardized and used industry-wide by the best yacht charter brokers, yacht charter managers, and yacht owners.

Once the availability, terms, and details are confirmed, contracts are submitted and signed.

Step 8: Payments and deposits

Now that contracts have been signed, and assuming the charter does not start within 30 days, a 50% deposit is also submitted to your yacht charter broker. They then record and confirm the deposit has been made.

Your final deposit of 50% and the APA (advance provisioning allowance) is made 30 days prior to the start of your yacht charter vacation starting.

Step 9: Preference sheets

To ensure your yacht charter vacation is the best it can be, your captain and crew need to know as much about your preferences as they can. This is an exciting part of the yacht charter experience because it allows the crew to set up the yacht exactly as you wish, and so they can deliver the five-star service that only the best yachts provide.

Remember to ask for what you want. The more specific you are with your preference sheets, the more enjoyable your experience will be. Preference sheets also include special requests, like birthdays, themes, or strict dietary needs of guests.

Be honest, informative, and prepare to be pampered. Some of the best charter yachts have even been known to ask if guests prefer a specific brand of sunscreen. No request is too large and no detail is too small,

Step 10: Enjoy your yacht charter experience

Sit back and relax. Chartering a yacht for your next vacation is simply as good and as easy as it gets. Regardless of age and interests, there is no other platform that engages all generations together at the same time, in the same place.

Friends and family that yacht together, stay together. The best memories are made, the best service is provided, and nothing quite compares.

By working with a yacht charter specialist, every step of your yacht charter experience will be simple and carefree.

You are well on your way to finding the best yachts for charter, and now, you know what to look for, what to avoid, and how to navigate the process.
