How to Book
Booking a yacht is a simple procedure. All you have to do is select a destination and the yacht
and contact our booking department.
We shall contact you with our precise offer, and once you decide on all the details (yacht,
date, charter base), you will receive our offer and make your payment as advised in there.
To avoid any misunderstanding, please read this brief information about booking a charter
1. Select your yacht and your destination (your starting marina or area of navigation).
When you are selecting the marina, keep in mind the transportation available, sort of charter
(one-way or return) and yacht availability.
On our internet page you will find complete information on all the yacht that we have and the
marinas where they are available.
For most of the yachts we can also organise their transfer from there to another marina,
however this is charged additionally.
Also, transfers are sometimes not possible due to lack of time, however, every case is specific
and we will agree with the details together at the moment of making the booking.
When you are selecting a yacht, keep in mind the number of the guests, as well as
accommodation of the skipper or the hostess if you decide to have them.
Also, please state any additional equipment or service (sport equipment, outboard engine,
spinnaker, ... ) you may wish to have.
Browse our offer of yachts for charter and contact us with your enquiry about a particular
yacht, or send us an e-mail with all relevant information (yacht type, charter dates, number of
guests, number of cabins, area of navigation, skipper, additional equipment, ...) and we shall
contact you with our offers. You may also complete the booking form available on our pages.
2. Once we receive your inquiry, we shall e-mail to you our offer related to one or more
yachts corresponding to your wishes.
You will receive yacht information, a few photos and the equipment list. If you have any
further questions about the yachts, please do not hesitate to contact us, and once you select
a yacht; please conform this by a brief e-mail message confirming the yacht, charter dates,
charter base and the number of persons.
Once you receive our offer, you will have a few days to decide - we are in possibility to keep
the yacht for you only for a few days (3), therefore it is important that you decide in time,
especially if the booking reservation is already on.
Please keep in mind that the sooner you contact us the better; because the longer you wait the
bigger chance will be that your yacht is already booked.
3. Once we receive your booking confirmation, we shall send you a pro-forma invoice.
The charter conditions are published on our internet pages, and we do recommend you to read
When you receive our pro-invoice, you will have to pay a part of the charter fee right away,
and a part till up to 45 days before your charter commencement.
When we receive the full charter fee from you, about two weeks before the charter we shall
send you the embarkation voucher (do not forget bringing it with you).
This completes the booking procedure.
Please contact us about any further information.
