FAQ2021-11-01T23:39:18+01:00

We always try to update the Frequently asked Questions (FAQ) with new information’s so you can have all the necessary information’s before starting your charter vacation.

General questions:

Which vessel type and size should I choose?2021-02-18T03:13:15+01:00

The choice of the vessel depends entirely on your wishes and preferences. Our offer includes the following vessel types:

Sailing boats – excellent for both family and active vacation

Catamarans – very stable and comfortable, ensure fast sailing

Gulets – use the power of engine and sails to move; rented exclusively with the crew (captain, sailor, cook, hostess)

Motor boats – for speed sailing enthusiasts

Luxury mega yachts – Fully crewed luxury yacht that can go international

Before choosing a vessel, please bear in mind the following details:

How many people will be on board?
Does your group consist of pairs who can share the same cabin or do some crew members require a separate cabin?
Do you prefer comfort?
Do you require a skipper or not? If you need skipper’s services, please bear in mind that the skipper sleeps on board as well, so one of the berths (either in the saloon area or in a cabin) should be reserved for him.

Sailing boat or catamaran?2021-02-18T03:13:11+01:00

The choice depends on your wishes and preferences. A Catamaran is an excellent choice for those with no sailing experience or for those who feel somewhat insecure sailing. It has two hulls, hence providing greater stability. Catamarans don’t lean more than 5° and offer greater comfort, spacious saloon area and cabins and somewhat faster sailing, since they have two engines. Modern catamarans have shallow draft in order to make the access to land and bays easier.

How do I book a vessel?2021-02-18T03:13:07+01:00

You can consult our Contact Center about the vessel choice – they will prepare an offer for you, based upon your request. Should you prefer to choose a vessel on your own, you can do so by using our Online Database system.

After having chosen a vessel, we can reserve it for you for several days, with no obligation, giving you time to organize your travel plans (buying plane tickets, etc.) and arrange everything with your crew members.

The vessel is considered booked by you as soon as you pay the first installment, i.e. 30, 40 or 50% of the total price, or the whole charter fee for bookings within 60 days before the departure. You can either pay by credit card or by bank transfer.

How To Book A Vessel Europe Yachts Charter
Can I charter a vessel for less than a week?2021-02-18T03:12:51+01:00

Sailing yacht, catamarans, gulets and motor boats charters usually begin and starts and ends Saturdays.

However, should you desire to take a several days long sailing trip in the off season ( October – April ), this can be organized and the price is then calculated according to the number of days spent on board.

During the high-season (in June, July and August, as well as the beginning of September and the end of May), we cannot deviate from our weekly charter system (Saturday – Saturday charter), since these are the busiest months for the charter companies and most weeks are sold out well in advance (therefore, the price is unlikely to be flexible and you would usually be charged for a full week of charter).

Can I Charter A Vessel For Less Than A Week Europe Yachts Charter
Where should I berth, in a marina or in bays?2021-02-18T03:06:27+01:00

If you have enough electricity, water and food, you can spend the night in one of the numerous, well secluded bays along the Adriatic coast. If using the services of a skipper, you won’t have any problems finding the securest bays, since the skippers are well acquainted with the Adriatic region.

If navigating a vessel on your own, please feel free to contact us for help – we’ll gladly give you our suggestions about the safe bays in the maritime zone where you go sailing. You could also ask the personnel of the charter agency for some suggestions during your check-in procedure in the marina.

Children on board?2021-02-18T03:04:26+01:00

Children can go sailing with you from an early age – there is no age limit, however, their stay on board should be closely monitored by adults. Be sure to choose the safest cabin for a child (e.g. the front cabin) and a place for him/her to play (cockpit is a relatively safe place). You can also put a safety net along the sides of the boat and children should by all means wear life vests.

You should bring baby food along, since it cannot be bought in every supermarket within the marina. You should also consider choosing shorter routes and visiting marinas more frequently in order to provide safer berthing as well as comfort.

Is it possible for some people to leave and other to join the crew during a sailing trip?2021-02-18T03:03:47+01:00

Changes of the crew are possible – however, this should be indicated in advance, before embarkation, so as to make crew lists, on which the dates of changes as well information on people joining or leaving the crew will be specified. Our guests receive a blank crew list, which they fill in with the crew details both before and after the change (the date of the change should be indicated as well). The complete crew list can be sent to us via email or fax.

Before taking over the vessel, the charter agency will provide the guests with a verified crew list with data both before and after the change, which the guests need to have during the sailing trip.

If the crew suddenly changes during the cruise, without previous notice, the guests are obliged to contact the charter agency and inform them about the change in order for them to send the new verified crew list. The new list can then be sent via fax to the guests (to any place where they are at that moment).

In case of a control, the guests need to present the new crew list, although they are obliged to keep the old one as well.

What is the cancellation policy?2021-02-18T03:01:51+01:00

If the Client wants to change the charter terms or cancel the reservation, this must be done in writing (via e-mail, fax, or post.)

If the Client cancels the reservation in writing, Charteree reserves the right to apply the following cancellation charges:

  • In the event of a cancellation made up to 45 days prior to the start date of the charter period Charteree charges 50% of the Charter Fee.
  • In the event of a cancellation made within 45 days prior to the start of the charter period Charteree charges 100% of the Charter Fee.
  • In the event of a cancellation made after check-in Charteree retains 100% of the Charter Fee and charges to the Client all expenses incurred as a result of the cancellation.

If the Client is able to find a new rental client for the same period of the charter and under the same terms and conditions, Charteree reserves the right to charge for any administrative and manipulative costs incurred by the change.

In the event that the Client has to cancel the reservation due to objective reasons (death in the family or serious illness), Charteree is not liable to return the paid amount, but if the Client rents the vessel in the same period Charteree will organize charter on other adequate vessel for the next appropriate date or for the next season, i.e. Charteree will issue a credit note that can be used in the agreed period.

The credit note is calculated taking into account the difference between the cancelled reservation and the reservation later confirmed for the same vessel and in the same period. Charteree is not liable for damages in the event of reservation changes or cancellation due to situations such as war, riot, strikes, terrorist activity, exceptional sanitary conditions, natural disasters, interventions of local authorities, etc.)

What is Advance Provisioning Allowance – APA2021-02-18T03:06:42+01:00

When chartering a crewed yacht under MYBA terms or special Europe Yacht Charter terms on the fully crewed yachts, you will be required to make a deposit in advance of the charter, which is separate to the charter or booking fee.

This deposit is called the “advance provisioning allowance” or APA. The APA amount is used to cover expenses incurred during the course of the charter such as fuel, food, beverages, mooring fees, visa fees, harbour fees, park fees, taxes, and other expenses not included in the Charter Fee. In the event of cancellation of the charter the APA is refundable.

The captain of the yacht is responsible for accounting for all APA expenses during the charter, and the breakdown will be presented to you in a clear manner at the end of the charter.

If the costs incurred during the course of the charter are less than the APA deposit, then the difference will be refunded to the Charterer at the end of the charter.

If the costs incurred during the course of the charter that are over and above the APA deposit then this difference will be payable by the Charterer at the end of the charter.
