Let’s summarize. Normally a charter lasts 7 day – from Saturday to Saturday, you rent the whole boat, not only your cabin. On the day of check in you should arrive at our base by 17:00, on the last sailing day you should arrive back to home port before 18 as night sailing is not allowed. Your check out will be next morning and the base technicians need time to revise the boat and the underwater part of the hull. On return the yacht must be with full fuel tanks and with empty fecal tanks. If during the check out procedure there are some breaches detected you will have to cover the repair works and spares from your security deposit (the difference will be refunded). You may use the deposit insurance service (damage waiver) that in some cases is highly recommended. Your sea routes depend on your preferences. Yacht Voyage offers you a bareboat charter and charges you only the rental cost of the boat.
And now the key question – what budget you need to spend your vacation at a yacht.
Let’s take an average rental price of 4600 EUR as the rates vary significantly within the season (from 3000 to 6800 EUR).
Mandatory extras will add 370 EUR.
Fuel – up to 200 EUR per week.
Skipper service - 1400 EUR per week.
Some additional extra - 100 EUR per week.
Provision - 300 EUR.
Let’s divide the total amount into 8 persons and the result will be around 900 EUR per person.
The flight and visa will cost 400 EUR.
The grand total is 1300 EUR per person.
And the final budget of the yacht rent (deposit not included) is 10400EUR.
Let’s compare it with a hotel stay: a double room in a decent 4-star hotel is approximately 1200 EUR. Your meals will be a bit more expensive - for a lunch you need to spend around 40 EUR, if you add a rather tiny breakfast and a rather small dinner the total per day for 2 persons will be minimum 80 EUR that results in 560 EUR per week. Adding at least one excursion, sightseeing around the island (not islands) beach rates and some associated expenses we get minimum 350-400 EUR. the total per one person will be thus 1000 EUR. The flight and visa will add 400 EUR, and here you are with the same result: 1300 EUR per person. But the level of comfort, the opportunity to see new places every day of your stay, your emotions (and of course a bit more of self-esteem) – are beyond any comparison. If you travel with your children you will feed even a stronger difference.
We haven’t added the deposit amount because it is anyway refundable (if no damages occurred). But you anyway have some emergency funds during your vacation, don’t you?!
We recommend Lagoon380 in Mallorca – this boat type will be perfect for 2 families each one consisting of 2 adults and a kid. Another splendid variant is your honeymoon or romantic holiday at s yacht. Even more budget-friendly variant but by no means less exciting is Lagoon380 in Montenegro – view it here.
