Charter rates are in Euro and refer to weekly charter period.
Charter rates include: Hire of yacht and her equipment (on board entertainment equipment, auxiliary crafts and water toys included) and crew wages. All Yachts are listed in CYA, Yachtfolio and Charter Index.
Charter rates do not include: All crewed yachts are quoted ‘Plus Expenses’ and the specific terms often referred to as “MYBA terms” stipulate that the charter fee includes charter of the yacht and equipment, crew wages and food, ship`s laundry, basic operating consumables, and insurance of the yacht for marine risk, third party claims, and the crew for employer`s liability insurance. Yachts quoted as ‘plus expenses’ means that the Charterer will be charged, at cost, for all other expenses. These expenses include but are not limited to food and beverages for the charter guests, fuel for the yacht and auxiliary craft(s) and water toys, berthing fees, harbor and pilot fees, customs charges, divers` fees where required, communication charges, VAT, taxes, communications, guest laundry, shore-side electricity and water, onshore transfers and tours and anything else not specifically included in the charter fee.
*APA (Advance Provisioning Allowance): In crewed charters, the Charterer pays upfront an estimated amount for these expenses, this is then forwarded to the Captain who will be responsible for making all payments as necessary, accounting of Charterer’s expenses, advising the latter periodically as to the disbursement of the APA and providing at the end of the charter a breakdown with as many receipts as possible. The amount provided up front for such expenses is called Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), it is collected with the last payment before the charter and its purpose is to enhance the level of services rendered, by allowing the Charterer to remain un-distracted by day to day expenses. Deductions from APA represent expenses accrued and paid for from APA. Being an estimated allowance, APA is usually calculated at between 20 and 35% of the charter fee depending on the yacht specifics and the charter location. The final, actual expenses accrued may be more or less depending on Charterer’s individual requirements. Should the Charterer spend more than their estimated expense allowance, additional payment will be required during their charter and under all circumstances the Charterer must settle all accounts in cash before disembarking at the end of the charter. Conversely, any unspent APA will be refunded to the Charterer at the end of the charter.
VAT: As stipulated by Greek Law, Value Added Tax is collected by the Owner at the expense of the Charterer. The Charterer shall at all times be liable to pay for the VAT amount applicable by Law at the time the charter is executed. Currently VAT rate applicable on total charter fee is 24% for charters of up to 48 hours duration and 12% for charters of more than 48 hours duration. The VAT rates mentioned herein are the ones applicable by current tax legislation valid to this date and subject to change without prior notice or responsibility on the Broker, the Stakeholder or the Owner.
Crew Gratuities: All of our yachts support MYBA tipping policy so Crew gratuities (tips) are at Charterer’s discretion. A gratuity between 5% and 15% of the contracted gross Charter Fee for the entire crew is generally suggested to the Charterer but it should be clear that the Charterer is under no obligation to leave a gratuity and at no time should a gratuity be solicited, either verbally or in written form when the Charterer is settling the final account.
Airport pickups, inland transfers, helicopter transfers, air charter services, tours, ticketing, hotel accommodation, rent a car, currency exchange are all arrangements not included in the charter price. We will be happy to schedule transportation of you and your guests to and from the yacht or assist with any other arrangement as above, any such service shall be provided at cost and can, if so required, be deducted from charterer’s APA.
All yachts are insured against:
• Risks arising from liability to third parties and damage to hull, machinery and equipment.
• Third party liability.
• Sea pollution liability.
It is highly recommended that the Charterer considers obtaining a Personal Travel Insurance, Cancellation/Curtailment Insurance and Charterer’s Liability Insurance.

Amazing holiday with a great crew! Thanks to all for making our vacation so special and memorable. We will miss you a lot and we hope to see you again! Love you all <3
Thank you to the best crew for the most amazing week, we have some incredible memories. The food, service and sailing was second to none, we wanted for nothing.
Our charter of Babalu is now complete and we will definitely be returning. Everyone involved has been first class. This was our first experience of chartering a yacht and right from our initial enquiry with Boatbookings through to our Captain arranging for water taxis to take us from Babalu to Spetses and our villa at the end of our week nothing was too much trouble.
Our crew, looked after all our requirements even though we had a mixed set of needs (vegan, vegetarian and gluten free!)
Captain planned our route and showed us Greek islands and sunsets that you will never see on the normal tourist route.
Babalu is very spacious and being a catamaran it was very stable with more than enough space for us to relax in comfort. From us all, thank you.
The most amazing crew and boat that we `ve seen in Greece!! It was literally the best summer holidays we have ever had!! We look forward to sail with you again!!!!
Thank you for everything and much love to our best crew! <3
