From the moment we stepped aboard and then stepped into every adventure you brought us to, it was INCREDIBLE. We fed Iguanas, pigs, stingrays, sharks and ourselves plenty. The cave dives and tube rids were FANTASTIC. Jumping from the deck and sliding down the slide, sitting on the bow or in the hot tub, was only made better by the incredible hospitality that was shared. Each meal was better than the next and the memories will be impossible to top! I am so very grateful for this week that I truly lived!"

WOW!!! Where do we begin?! We felt like family the minute we stepped on the yacht. Captain Bill – you took us on so many great adventures, from feeding iguanas & pigs, playing on disappearing sand bars, riding the tide over and over, and snorkeling a reef inside caves and even a sea aquarium. You made sure our trip was customized just for us! Chef Olga – every meal was better than the last! I’m surprised we didn’t sink the poor yacht with all the amazing food we ate. It’s obvious you put your heart into everything you prepare. Novelette – With your sweet smile, you quietly made sure we had everything we needed before we even knew we needed it. Our rooms were always fresh. Our dirty clothes disappeared and magically showed up clean. Johnny – what a fun fishing trip! Thanks for cooking our catch for the Independence Day lunch with all of your family recipes. Everything was so good and you even had our “no seafood” people eating fish. Sarah – your effervescent personality was such a joy! Your presence was felt throughout the boat and you made it feel like home. We loved all the cocktails you created for us. We couldn’t wait for each meal to see how the table was decorated. So much imagination! We had the most fantastic crew on the gorgeous Bella Contessa in one of the most beautiful countries we have ever traveled to. Thanks to you all for a trip we will always remember.

Rates are Plus Expenses

Med Term pricing is cost (cost of the boat) + VAT (country tax) + APA (operating and provisioning expenses). The cost is the weekly rate for the charter. The VAT and APA are calculated on the cost of the boat and paid in addition to that base price. The APA covers: fuel, water, food, licenses, alcohol, and any specific items you would like provided to you. APA money that is not used for provisioning would be reimbursed to you- or, if you spend over the amount, they would charge you. The Captain keeps track of expenses and would let you know if you’re reaching your APA limit. This is the industry standard for the region.

Caribbean Terms or Caribbean Inclusions refer to all-inclusive rates. These boats are typically catamarans and monohulls and are found in the Caribbean.

Most (but not all) motor-yachts and sailing vessels in the Med are Med Rate terms.

The yachts featured on our website will specifically state which type of pricing they offer.
