Preliminary Considerations for Yacht Charter
Before embarking on your luxury yacht experience along the Côte d'Azur, consider the following key decisions:
- Type of Yacht: Choose from luxury motor yachts, known for their speed, modern amenities, and comfortable interiors, including a two-tiered superstructure and an open upper deck. These yachts are ideal for long trips, reaching speeds of up to 40 knots, but have higher fuel consumption. Sailing yachts offer a romantic and eco-friendly experience, propelled mainly by wind power, which reduces fuel costs. The natural propulsion means quieter journeys but with a constant tilt deck and dependency on wind direction. For versatility, consider motor-sailing yachts, combining both types' benefits, offering both natural propulsion and independence from weather conditions. For the epitome of luxury, our mega-yachts and super-yachts come equipped with amenities that range from Jacuzzis to helipads.
- Number of Guests: The yacht's size and cabin configuration will be tailored to accommodate your party, ensuring comfort for all on board.
- Itinerary: Design a course for adventure along the beautiful Côte d'Azur. Our interactive map and tour descriptions can assist in crafting your ideal journey.
- Budget: Establish a budget that aligns with your preferences for a luxurious charter experience.
Optimal Time for Yachting
The Côte d'Azur offers an ideal yachting environment from May to October, characterized by its excellent climate conditions and vibrant cultural scene. This period is marked by a progression of events, changing weather patterns, and unique opportunities for exploration and participation in regional festivities.
May to June: This period marks the beginning of the yachting season with warm, comfortable weather and less crowded destinations. It's the time for high-profile events like the Cannes Film Festival in May, attracting celebrities and film enthusiasts, and the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, a pinnacle of luxury and excitement. This period is also ideal for visiting coastal towns like Nice and Saint-Tropez, where the charm of the French Riviera starts to come alive.
July to August: The peak summer months are characterized by hot, sunny weather, perfect for swimming and water sports. The coastline buzzes with activity, and destinations like Cannes, Monaco, and Antibes are at their most vibrant. This is also a prime time for experiencing local festivals and cultural events, which showcase the region's rich heritage and lively arts scene.
September to October: As the high season winds down, the weather remains warm but becomes more temperate, offering a more relaxed yachting experience. This period is marked by events like MIPIM, the world's leading property market event, and MAPIC, the international market for retail real estate, both offering unique networking opportunities. Yachting enthusiasts can also participate in or spectate various regattas, where the sailing spirit of the Riviera is at its finest. Additionally, these months are perfect for exploring lesser-known gems along the coast, where the beauty of the Riviera can be enjoyed in a more serene setting.
The Côte d'Azur, with its distinct monthly offerings, presents a versatile yachting experience. From the vibrant cultural scene and serene coastal getaways to exhilarating nautical events, it caters to diverse interests, ensuring a unique and unparalleled adventure for every yachting enthusiast.
Our yachts are equipped with a range of recreational and comfort amenities. Expect everything from water sports equipment like jet skis and wakeboards to high-quality audio-visual systems, satellite or cellular phone connections, and even onboard fitness centers, massage rooms, and mini-bars in cabins. Luxury mega-yachts may feature additional extravagances like onboard restaurants, casinos, and helipads.
Yacht Charter Costs and Booking Terms
Our yacht charter fee comprehensively covers the hire of the yacht, crew costs, and marine insurance, while food is not included. We adhere to the standard MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association) contract, which guarantees transparency and satisfaction for our clients.
Charter Fee Payment: 50% of the charter fee is due upon signing the MYBA Charter Agreement. The remaining 50% and the Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) are payable no later than one month before the charter begins.
APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance): This is a deposit to cover additional costs not included in the charter fee, typically accounting for about 30% of the rental cost. It covers expenses such as fuel, food and beverages, harbor fees, communication costs, and any special equipment or services requested by the client.
Booking Less Than One Month in Advance: If the yacht is hired less than one month before the delivery date, 100% of the charter fee and the APA are due and payable upon signing the agreement.
Additional Costs: APA covers the actual fuel cost, including delivery and redelivery of the yacht, entertainment-related fuel use (e.g., for water skis, jet skis), food and beverages for passengers, harbor fees, communication costs onboard, and fees for any additional services or equipment requested.
